#2 of 34 Speciality lodging in Stone Town
Travellers' Choice
Nestled in the southwest of this exquisite island, Fumba Beach Lodge is situated only 30 minutes drive from Zanzibar's International airport in Stone Town. 26 whitewashed Zanzibari style en-suite bungalows with their own verandas are scattered along the beach ensuring private views of the ocean. Three naturally formed coves protect the beaches around the lodge and provide seclusion and tranquility. In the open air restaurant you can enjoy the exquisitely prepared fresh seafood along with a tantalizing array of international and local dishes. For day time excitement you can choose scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, Stone Town tours and lots more. Or just relax at the swimming pool or on the beach under the branches of the baobab and do nothing. With the personalized warm service of our Zanzibar staff and the tranquil atmosphere, Fumba Beach Lodge will fulfill all your dreams.

A unique location. Beautiful and peaceful lodge, very nice and clean rooms, excellent kitchen, friendly staff. A real treat, once arrived there you'd forget there's a pandemic going on. Very safe to travel there. Nice pool and an ever nicer beach. Cosy bar, tasteful cocktails. Paradise on earth! Very helpful staff and a friendly diving team. We (Annemie and Vincent) had the time of our lives. Thanks Sharon, Chui, Stella, J-square, Johnson, Bushman, Moina and everyone else 😘

Thank you Edwin, Sharon and team for making our week stay at your place exceptional! From the wonderful situated rooms to the cocktails under the boabab tree...all made us feel welcome. We specifically looked for a place that was secluded and had a touch of nature and that was exactly what we found. The biabab trees on the beach are still my favourite. Thank you further for making our anniversary special ❤️❤️ We arrived as visitors and left as family...

I have been to Fumba many times, and will continue to visit. i find it impossible to fault. the rooms are well thought out and spacious. We stayed last time in a suite with an outdoor bathroom under the stars, built into a huge baobab tree overlooking the ocean. Can't beat that! The food is on point, delicate and skilled execution - which is not that easy to find in Zanzibar in my experience. Kind staff, warm but professional. I recommend highly.

Ocean facing, tastefully decorated, colonial style eco lodge embedded within a lush tropical forest. We stayed in one of the detached cottages right on the beach. The forest is heaving with energy and life. Monkeys stop by on the porch on their daily trail. It all feels like a safari; a jungle outpost forgotten by the world. It’s a refreshengly quaint retreat recommended to all who seek greater interaction with nature and escape from the city life. Being a long term Dubai resident I really appreciated the peacefulness of this place. We booked a full board package. Very much recommended as there are no alternative restaurants in the area. The food is great with fish/meat and veggie options. The bar is well stocked. The prices are very affordable so one doesn’t have to worry about the final bill at the check out. The staff is super friendly. All guests interact and socialise. The atmosphere is relaxed and easy. I loved the absence of the corporate culture (so annoyingly prevalent in the branded resorts). This place is truly authentic. There is nothing fake about it. The place is timeless. I felt as if I was someone’s guest; can’t help thinking I’ve discovered the perfect place to escape to from the dehumanising experiences of city life. We will definitely return later this year. BTW, the place is great for kids. Our 11 year old daughter loved staying there.
