The bungalows offer comfy twin or double beds and are also equipped with mosquito nets, ceiling and standing fans as well as indoor and outdoor seating areas. Each bungalow has a hardwood-panelled en suite bathroom with walk-in shower, hot and cold running water, a toilet and basin.

Some are are situated along the beachfront and the remaining on the hillside, which have wide views over the lagoon. Fundu Lagoon's Hill Side accommodation offers exceptional views of the Indian Ocean as well as a cooling night breeze. Beach Front accommodation is shaded by tropical trees and shrubs, characterised by the beach on your doorstep and the sound of the crashing waves.

Relax at the resort in the beautiful infinity pool after a day of pampering at the hotel's Spa, a well-appointed establishment where they make their own beautiful aromatherapy infusions.

Fundu Lagoon

Deana Coggin

The 4 nights at Fundu to decompress and sleep in after safari were magical. The diving was world class and Haanes was kind enough to move us to an ocean front room. The food, the staff, everyone and everything at Fundu is amazing. Although I rarely r eturn to far flung properties, I do hope to have the opportunity to revisit Fundu again.

"Fundu Lagoon is probably the most amazing place I have ever been to. We absolutely loved it. The setting, the luxury, waking up with monkeys on your balcony. All of it."

Claudia Morawetz

This resort was 'over the top' - almost ridiculously excessive. Our jaws dropped when we were shown our 'room' which, as well as an overly spacious room housing a king-size bed, fridge, living area, and marble-tiled bathroom with double shower, inclu ded an outside deck with plunge pool, a covered lounge area, an upstairs deck with sofas, and a private section of beach! The resort had a beautiful, two-tier pool, a large dining room visited by black-faced monkeys, a second indoor bar, a lounge area, a TV/games room, a boutique and of course the dive shop.

"To finish at Fundhu was perfect and we received another very warm welcome from Hanas (again, I may have spelt it wrong). A very genuinely warm man who is passionate about the area as well as a great people person. A lovely place to unwind."

Sharon Enright

We are so glad we chose Pemba. The diving was one of the best we've ever encountered. I cannot believe how much fish is there! Fundu Lagoon was hands down the most spectacular place we stayed. I believe we were upgraded to the superior suites. WOW is all I can say. The private two-story lanai, plunge pool and deck were almost overwhelming. The only thing that bothered my husband was the bush babies as they talk all night long and the property is covered with them (but I didn't mind so much)!
