Pemba Island Zanzibar
  • Fundu Lagoon

    Fundu Lagoon is situated on Pemba Island, which is part of the Zanzibar archipelago and lies to the north of its larger, better known sister island, Unguja. The hotel is situated on a remote and beautiful beach on the south western side of Pemba, and is only accessible by boat.

    Fundu is the epitome of a 'barefoot paradise' with a distinct Robinson Crusoe air in a remote and peaceful location. It is a place for guests to relax and unwind in casual, yet stylish surroundings.

    The main hotel is built under thatch and is large and airy overlooking the sea.
