Mnemba Island Lodge, located just off the North East Coast of Zanzibar, is a tiny dream island with the impressive accolade of being one of the most romantic and exclusive coral atoll islands in the world.

Mnemba has the best beach on Zanzibar; sandy shores are surrounded by a rich, colourful reef brimming with fish, both small and pretty and large and impressive - such as dolphin, barracuda, tuna and shark-like swimmers.

At the island centre is a cool pine forest, and the eastern coastal aspect feels quite wild and unkempt despite its diminutive size. The lodge is stylishly run by Conservation Corporation Africa as a private and exclusive retreat for serious island hoppers who seek to find a very special kind of island idyll, and aims to provide an ultimate experience of barefoot luxury in an entirely comfortable desert island style.

Accommodation is in just 8 roomy thatched beach bandas with bathrooms set back along a soft corridor of woven coconut palm, each set back from the beach in a private clearing in the forest. All bedrooms, verandas and central living areas are atmospherically designed with light cotton nets, soft African prints and cushions, and - once the astronomical rates have been afforded - all fresh tropical cocktails, diving expeditions, water sports and fishing trips are included.
