Cast Away
Mnemba island is a secluded atoll just off the northern coast of Zanzibar in Tanzania.
Mnemba Island, Zanzibar
The sand is like icing sugar and the water a dreamy crystal-blue. 

This island is a true Castaway - paradise; but less castaway - more paradise. Full of little luxuries and curious details, all from a charming troop of staff at a 2-1 guest ratio, tending to your every need. Tea delivered to your front door at dawn, polished clamshells with freshwater to wash your feet by your front door, wardrobes stocked with beach-bags, hats, sarongs and soft cotton gowns.

Laze and gaze out over the Indian ocean from your exclusive private stretch of beachfront as you contemplate scuba diving, kayaking, swimming with dolphins or neither. This low key resort is dotted with 12 wooden beach cottages or ‘bandas’ peeping out onto the beach shared with ghost crabs and turtles. 

Mnemba Island Lodge

Zanzibar is known as the spice island, from the centuries old trade of cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. Today the Zanzibar Archipelago is still bathed in the strong scents of spices that can be enjoyed in the colourful cuisine with influences from Europe, India and the Middle East.  

This island really defines the relaxed ‘barefoot luxury’ movement so don’t even bother putting on shoes until it’s time to go home. Mnemba is available for exclusive hire for up to 24 guests and is the place for pure relaxation not to mention, a favourite honeymoon spot.
