An exclusive luxury private island situated off the northeast coast of Zanzibar

One of the most exclusive private hideaways for a romantic island holiday, Mnemba island is the ultimate in barefoot luxury.

The tropical scenery dotted with palm trees offers the perfect backdrop for unwinding on the beachfront under the shade of the pine forest. Guests can take an afternoon nap in the traditional Zanzibari ‘beach beds’ situated halfway between the Indian Ocean and the bandas. 

The common areas are characterized by a relaxed informal atmosphere including the dining and sitting area which boast beautiful open views of the beach and spectacular vistas of Zanzibar beyond. There is a small library with a selection of wildlife books, games and magazines. 

The island can host 24 guests in the twelve spacious beachside bandas overlooking the Mnemba atoll (a scuba diver’s delight). Each of them offers direct access to the beach, an en-suite bathroom, ceiling fans and a large outdoor veranda. 

Mnemba island definitely ticks all the boxes striking the right balance between adventure and relaxation, from offering a variety of water sports (swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, windsurfing and scuba diving) and activities to the ultimate pampering and relaxation, there is something for every taste.
