As a recommendation we spent a weekend there. It's remote. You are surrounded by nature, no stress no artificial sounds, a little bit like a timetravel. Did tours to a sandbank which exists only during low tide, once during day and once during night and walks through the mangroves, this was an experience you will not have often in life....

It was such a nice and awesome place to spend some time alone. . Home away from home. We had so much fun especially the sun bath, the beautiful birds. . For us, it's Funzi mangrove resort any day any time.

I think I had the best room - authentic quiet luxury. Low roof and windows three quarters of the way around so lovely light in the morning, especialy as I had hung some colourful wraparounds. Something between a tent and a cottage. Little touches such as super lotions and potions, torch, fan, water, roomy. The cool restaurant and bar provided...

I spent one night and 2 days at this peaceful resort and enjoyed it thoroughly! The seafood was amazing, the staff so kind, and the owners very welcoming. I highly recommend Funzi if you're looking for a tranquil getaway in a unique environment – mangroves, bush babies and so many other beautiful pieces of island paradise to see. Also, highly...

We spent four nights here over the New Year's holiday. We found the ambiance quite pleasant. It is not "luxury" hotel like some that are found on safari, but it does not cost that much either. The food was great and the people are quite lovely and helpful. We enjoyed the pool and the sandbar beach and found it all...

Stayed at this resort for 2 nights at the beginning of February 2015. My husband and I were quite dissapointed with the quality of this resort. We know this is nature and were not expecting luxury. We have stayed in many safari camps and this is by far the worst we have seen. Have to say the staff were very...

We recently went on a weekend-trip to this place - absolutely beautiful. If you´re looking for a relaxing holiday, this is the place. Quiet, peaceful and surrounded by nature, nice and primitive bungalows and very kindly staff. The seafood were outstanding!

We spent one night at Funzi Mangrove resort and really enjoy it. The location is very surpising, you have to wlak in the mangrove to access the hotel which is quite surpising! The pool is a real plus and the food is amazing especially the mangrove crab. Staff very helpful and the owner Veronique is very friendly. At night you...

We knew the place from two years back when we had lunch there after a boat trip. Back then we fell in love with the place and said we would definitely return for a longer stay. And so we did. After a short boat trip you reach the Island. We arrived at low tide, meaning that you walk the last...

After a week of safari, this is the perfect place to rest and enjoy the sea and the sun away from everything.That is a real place of heaven. The food (fresh grilled fish, lobster, crabs...) is great and healthy. The accomodation (Banda) are nicely decorated and comfortable. Spending a few hours on the sand bank is an unforgettable experience. Thank...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This is an amazing place to spend some nights after a safari. You will enjoy our Resort with a very quality of food and the quietness of the wild island. Deep sea fishing, Mangrove fishing, the relax around the swimming pool, go and discover the species of birds and crocs in the Ramisi River and just have pleasure on the sandbar. Why not to go to the dolphin excursion with our dhaw to the Kisite Marine Park doing snorkling or the sundown with the bitings and a half bottle of sparkling wine. ... more   less
