Stunning location, amazing accomodation, fantastic snorkelling and out of this world food! Hard to find anything even slightly negative about this beautiful place. From the moment you arrive and are welcomed by the team to the moment they wave you off you are treated like royalty and all the staff are one step ahead of making your holiday truly special....

They thought of everything on Mnemba (so you don't have to). Your main focus is enjoying yourself and that you will. The food was incredible and the chef would review the menu with you each morning at breakfast to make sure you didn't require/want any substitutions. Bring your appetite! The island is private and spectacular and you will never want...

We had never experienced "barefoot luxury" and had had the phrase many a time. Mnemba Island lodge epitomises barefoot luxury. The place is magical and is truly paradise. The island is a mile in circumference and a lot of fun to just walk around and look at some of the local wildlife (crabs, didkdik etc). Because of the reef being...

All the positive reviews you've read are true. This private island resort off the coast of Zanzibar is the perfect getaway to relax and take in some rays, and maybe some fish too! The staff is courteous, professional to a fault, thinks ahead for your every need and tries very hard to make your stay the most memorable of your...

We finished our February vacation (and proposal trip) to Tanzania at Mnemba. It is EXPENSIVE, but worth every single cent you pay. The cabana is absolutely stunning with a very tasteful decor, you have a beachfront hut with shower, minibar, sofa and hammock where you can chill if you are truly to lazy to walk 30 feet to your cabana....

&Beyond's Mnemba Island Lodge is hands down one of the best beach resorts in the world. Everything from the hospitality, dining, lodging, the white sandy beach, and clear blue waters make this private island a tropical paradise.

I had eyed this property for several years - wanting to go, but not able to get my mind around the cost so would reason with myself and say 'next year'. Well, this past May we finally took the plunge and it was 1000% worth every penny! We were the very first guests to arrive when the season started up,...

My wife and I visited Mnemba during our honeymoon and we were treated to a wonderful four nights on what essentially is a private island. The service is great! Virtually all food is fresh caught fish! The accommodations are comfortable. The views during the sundowner drinks are incredible. We are not certified scuba divers but still had a great experience...
