We recently stayed at Mnemba for 5 nights on our honeymoon. We were blown away by how special this place is. It is so romantic and exclusive. Service is like nowhere else. Our butler Tumaini went above and beyond to make us feel special including planning beautiful private romantic dinners for us. The chefs Ish and Anton were so accomodating...

My wife and I traveled to Mnemba actually in January 2016, but I only got around to reviewing now. The place was absolutely spectacular, to the point that you even forget the large sum you are parting with to stay in one of their beautiful, open air bandas. Of course, as an andBeyond property, they start you out by greeting...

My husband and I started our Tanzanian honeymoon here. When we arrived we were almost sad because we knew life would never be this good. The service, accommodation and natural setting are unparalleled. The food alone was some of the best we've ever had -- it was like having a private chef.

We went in 2014. After a bumpy ride of aprox.1 hour we arrived in a little local village opposite the island. The luxurious rooms are open ( no windows nor doors ) and being just a seconds away from the main island makes you feel a bit unsafe. The island's nature is as pristine as you can get and great...

I had wanted to stay on Mnemba Island for such a long time and finally got the opportunity when my husband and I celebrated our 10th Year Wedding Anniversary. However, there’s always a risk that when you put a place on such a pedestal, it won’t live up to expectations. Mnemba Island most certainly did. I will say upfront that...

I know what you are thinking... A private island off the coast of Africa as a perfect start/ending for a safari vacation....but don't get tricked. My wife and I travel the globe and rarely spare expense in order to stay at the best places. Bottom line, this place is not what it seems. 1) Service/The People Zanzibar is a dangerous...

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...
