We just got back from Tanzania. We spent the last four days at Fundu Lagoon and had an amazing time.
Fundu Lagoon is remote and quiet. If you are looking to be entertained by organized trips, bands, and activities, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful place to chill, then this is the place.
We stayed in one of the superior suites which had a private plunge pool (read: small) and lots of outdoor lounging and reading space. It included a sleeping tent and bathroom, thatched upstairs and downstairs reading areas, and steps down to the beach. The accommodations are tents, but they don't have the feel of a tent. Ours was in great condition.
We went diving everyday we were there. The dive equipment is in good shape and the staff was very professional. The reef was in great shape with lots of coral. Fish were plentiful and varied.
Food was good but not outstanding. We ordered off the inclusive alcohol list which included a limited selection of wine and house liquor. Top shelf liquor and premium wine were extra. We were not charged for any mixers, so as long as you ordered a bloody mary with the house liquor there was no charge.
A note on the bugs and rats mentioned in some of the other reviews: We saw no rats. There are bush babies running around the camp. They are squirrel size primates that look a little like rodents and could be confused for rats. There are huge harmless millipedes all over. We never found one in our tent. The tent was sprayed for bugs every night. We found this true of everywhere we stayed in Africa, which were all high-end resorts (Greystoke Mahale and Selous Safari Camp).
