The authentic Funba Beach Lodge is a cosy retreat set amid 40 acres of the Menai beach conservation area and on one of Zanzibar’s most secluded beaches. It’s the place to choose is you want privacy, the chance to really unplug and relax and unpretentious surroundings. It’s a 30-minute drive from the island’s capital, Stone Town, away from busy tourist areas, offering guests the chance to enjoy snorkeling, diving and discovering the island’s natural habitat. To get here, it’s a short drive from the local airport.
There are 26 spacious en-suite rooms to choose from – deluxe rooms, luxury suites or Baobab suites – all boasting a homely décor with a traditional feel. Luxury suites have a Frank Lloyd-Wright inspired outside shower overlooking the ocean with direct access to the beach, a private terrace and king beds. Baobab suites are the most luxurious cradled around a 300-year-old Baobab tree, with an outdoor bathroom and direct beach access.
You could spend the entire day lounging on the beach, listening to the sound of the gentle sea lapping the shores in between taking sips of a cocktail. There’s also plenty of opportunity to explore the island. Take a tour of a local spice plantation, visit the Jozani National Forest or head to the island’s capital – Stone Town – about 30 minutes away by car.
Take a seat in the hotel’s beautiful beach-side restaurant and sit back to enjoy a selection of delicious local dishes freshly prepared using the freshest of ingredients and herbs, as well as daily caught fish.
