Pemba - Hotels & Lodges
- Pemba Lodge - Kiweni Island
Pemba Lodge has only 5 cottages, which guarantees a peaceful and relaxed place. The emphasis is on simplicity, being at one with the environment. The restaurant served Swahili inspired meals with vegetarian options, using organic fruits and vegetables as well as freshly caught fish and seafood, all provided by the local farmers and fishermen.
- The Manta Resort - Pemba
Anchored in an ocean floor anomaly, the floating underwater room tops almost anything. Encapsulated within a turquoise blue bubble, watching shoals of reef fish swim by - sometimes in three or four layers of different species, this is a truly heart-stopping, yet awakening, experience. The floating structure, Swedish engineered, provides three levels, those above the water clad in local hardwood.
- Fundu Lagoon - Wambaa
There are 18 tented safari-style bungalows, some on the beach and some on the hillside, but all with breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. Fundu has some of the best diving in the world and was recently voted Best Marine Safari Property in Africa.
Pemba is a treasure trove of marine life, better suited to experienced divers due to strong currents. Pemba’s corals are pristine and the Misali Island conservation area is rich in diversity, with over 40 species of coral, 350 species of fish and 5 species of sea turtles. Out on the reefs, snapper schools swim around Coral Mountain, eagle and manta rays glide through the water, while lobsters peer out at divers from coral shelves.
