&BEYOND MNEMBA ISLAND

If you have ever secretly had a desire to find yourself one of the few inhabitants of a beautiful tropical island, but without the hassle of having to fend for yourself, &Beyond Mnemba Island could be the place for you! Discover unpretentious barefoot luxury, in considerable comfort, on this private island. A maximum of 24 guests at any one time can experience this private hideaway, overlooking the Mnemba atoll (a scuba divers delight). From snorkelling, swimming and kayaking, to massages on the beach, to doing nothing at all, Mnemba has something for everyone.

ROOMS & SUITES
Relax and unwind in the exclusivity of your own stretch of beachfront, where 12 simple yet luxurious bandas peep out onto unblemished sands from the dappled shade of the casuarina pine forest. 2 Bandas have a link to form a family suite. Private beach salas; WI-FI in bandas.

LEISURE & ACTIVITIES
Underwater enthusiasts can take advantage of the island’s PADI dive school, which offers incredible snorkelling and various scuba diving excursions. Other facilities include wi-fi in the guest areas; complimentary laundry; Wellness - In-room massage, Gym-in-a-Basket, Yoga. Children of all ages are welcome. Other activities include dhow cruises; birdwatching; fishing; water sports. &Beyond Mnemba Island is reached by a 90-minute drive from Stone Town, to wade to a waiting boat for a 20-minute crossing.

FOOD & DRINK
Thatched dining and sitting or bar areas boast beautiful open views of the beach and spectacular vistas of Zanzibar beyond. Baskets of fresh fruit, fish, lobsters, crabs and prawns sail into Mnemba daily on traditional ngalawa outriggers. Lunch is often served on large wooden carved Zanzibari platters heaped with delicious mezze. Romantic candlelit dinners are served on the beach, with the waves lapping gently at guests’ feet. Private beach picnics delight newlyweds (and not-so-newlyweds) alike.

Our Opinion - The ultimate barefoot luxury escape, but the luxury comes in the form of exclusivity rather than gold taps and air-conditioning!
