My flight from Heathrow was delayed 22 hours so I missed my first night at Fumba Beach Lodge. I phoned Edwin to let him know and he made sure that there was someone from Fishermans Tours to meet me at the airport as I had been unable to get through to Fishermans by phone.

What a lovely resort! The setting is beautiful, the staff (including Mag, the manager) could not have been more helpful, and the accommodations are luxurious considering where the resort is located. Several of the rooms have outdoor bathrooms built into a huge baobab tree--quirky but lovely. Warm Indian Ocean water, a beautiful pool, and good food.

Just returned from our short stay here after our Safari holiday. What a pleasure it was, the staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and the food was excellent. Quiet, idyllic surroundings and great rooms. We stayed in a sea front room, waking up to the sound of the sea and the monkeys on the roof was superb. Would... More

This hotel was a refuge for this dust encrusted traveler. My cottage had a stunning view of the Indian Ocean. The food was delicious and bar drinks tasty. The happy hour offered significant discounts on drinks. The staff was friendly and helpful.
