We were here as a couple for only 4 nights, off-season in October after an 18 day safari through Rwanda and Kenya. This was a perfect ending--sun, heat, gorgeous beach, luxurious huts. We had high expectations because TWO different managers on our safari accommodations had

Thank you very much for your delightful review of your stay with us at Fundu Lagoon. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your accommodation with its private plunge pool and outdoor decking area, which does work very well for holding a party or reading peacefully. How amazing to do an 18 day safari through Rwanda and Kenya - I’m glad that the two camp managers’ references to Fundu turned out to be a good omen! Rusty is the most fascinating fishing expert – his knowledge is just incredible, as I’m sure you discovered for yourself. Although we have fresh fish caught daily, our guests love nothing more than sharing a successful catch of a fellow guest, and, as you saw for yourself it is greatly appreciated via a sushi appetizer for everyone. I’m delighted that you were so well looked after by our staff, and Ramon will also be extremely happy to read your kind comments, as will our chefs. Thank you for the tip about wearing sandals when returning to Fundu from a day’s excursion – the wooden jetty does retain the heat and it can get very hot indeed. I’m glad that you didn’t find any sea urchins – they come and go at times, but we do recommend that guests wear water shoes as, apart from the possibility of urchins, the sea shore can expose some sharp shells on it particularly when the tide is fully out. I’m so happy that you’re coming to stay with us again; everyone at Fundu Lagoon will very much be looking forward to welcoming you both back towards the end of the year. Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review – it is sincerely appreciated. Ellis Flyte (Creative Director) c.c. Ramon Ribes (Manager)

We were lucky to stay there during 6 nights. This place is a hidden gem and makes one with the nature. It is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. The staff is great and the meals are delicious (all of them!). There are three different dishes for the dinner every evening and there

The answer to the title of your review is, in my opinion, ‘yes’ – Fundu Lagoon is heaven!! What a wonderful review to read, and I am delighted that you had such a terrific holiday with us. I am so glad that you enjoyed all the menu choices that were on offer to you during your stay, and that you did your best to try everything – that will make our chefs very happy! I was also pleased to learn that you enjoyed the massages you had at our spa – I would certainly agree with you that our therapist has fantastic skills. Apart from your very generous comments about our staff and the resort itself, I am grateful to you for pointing out that we have a no tipping policy at Fundu Lagoon. As you correctly point out, there are many staff who work unseen behind the scenes in the day to day running of the hotel, and it is a far fairer policy to split all the donations kindly left by our guests, between every member of staff. Thank you for your recommendation of Fundu Lagoon to potential future guests, and also for taking the time to write your review – it is genuinely appreciated. Ellis Flyte (Creative Director) c.c. Ramon Ribes (Manager)

Even before you arrive (on a private speedboat obviously!) you get a breathtaking view of what is very much your own private Robinson Crusoe island. Impossibly white powder sand, impossibly turquoise and blue sea that is crystal clear, weather bleached beach huts built in a

I was delighted to read your fabulous review of your holiday at Fundu Lagoon, and I’m so happy that you had such a great time staying with us. I am very proud of the high standard of service that our staff provide to our guests, and to have that endorsed by yourselves is truly wonderful. Congratulations on completing your first scuba dive at Misali Island. You were certainly in the safest of hands with our diving team, and I would totally agree with you that the coral reef there is just ‘wow’! I’m so pleased that you took advantage of the opportunity to have a private seafood beach BBQ to yourselves – Fundu’s beach is the perfect location for something as special as that, and it is always a memorable evening. Everyone at Fundu will be so flattered to learn that we are a serious contender for your joint 60th birthday celebrations – your kind words mean a lot and are very much appreciated by us all.

Fundu Lagoon is the perfect chill out hotel. Set on the most beautiful beach, powder white sand, palm trees and warm sea. Our Beach Suite was just steps onto the beach, very spacious with a lovely plunge pool. The meals were delicious and the location for dinner was varied

We are going in November next year so can anyone advise as to what the weather is like and any problem with mosquitoes?
Thank you for your question. I would confirm the previous responses to your query - there can be short bursts of rain during November. We recommend that our guests use mosquito repellent, but there are also sand flies which some people can suffer from more than others. We look forward to welcoming you to Fundu Lagoon next year. With all good wishes for Christmas and 2019. Ellis Flyte (Creative Director)

Thank you so much for your enquiry. Currently only 3 of our accommodation suites have air conditioning units, but we provide overhead fans in all the other bungalows. I do hope that we will be able to welcome you both to Fundu Lagoon later in the year, and make your honeymoon the holiday of a lifetime. Ellis Flyte (Creative Director)

Hello, and thank you for your enquiry. During the evenings at Fundu people do tend to dress up a bit more - but we're not talking full length evening gowns and stilettos here! Our guests are more inclined to wear trousers and long sleeves as they would in most resorts as this helps to double up as a barrier against mosquitoes. Although the temperature is still very warm, it can get a little breezy so I'd suggest you pack a light wrap just in case the wind gets up. Ramon and all of our staff will be very much looking forward to welcoming you both for your holiday with us. Ellis Flyte (Creative Director)
