Fumba Beach Lodge

  • On the Fumba peninsular in southwest Zanzibar
  • Relatively high quality lodge in beautiful grounds
  • Just over 30 rooms, standards and suites
  • Good spa facility and a PADI dive school on site

Fumba Beach Lodge is located on the south-west coast of Zanzibar, set within the Menai beach conservation area.

Fumba is located in an area that is substantially quieter than much of Zanzibar’s east coast – it is a good option for clients trying to stay away from the crowds.

It is also less than a 30-minute drive from the airport and the capital Stone Town and located on the Fumba peninsula, a large marine haven that was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1998, by the World Wildlife Federation. 

With just over 30 rooms, Fumba Beach Lodge is certainly more of a resort then it is a small boutique hotel. There are a number of different categories of rooms, including some very smart private suites.

Fumba’s main selling points are its close proximity to some great diving sites and its status as one of the best places to view dolphins on Zanzibar. However, this area is not known for its beaches, which has always been our issue with the hotel – the beach is not nearly as good as elsewhere.

"I've always struggled with Fumba due to the quality of the beach, but it is a property that offers a good level of service and has a good low price."
