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 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)

How wonderful to read your fantastic review of your recent holiday at Fundu Lagoon. Thank you so much. I am particularly delighted that you enjoyed our ‘exceptional’ food. As a vegetarian myself, I have always made sure that there are suitable options for non-meat eating guests available on every menu. Your kind comments about our staff will be very much appreciated too. All of us at Fundu Lagoon are so happy that you had such a lovely holiday with us, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Ellis Flyte (Creative Director) c.c. Ramon Ribes (Manager)

We arrived at Fundu after more than a week of long-haul travel, a wedding and a dusty, bumpy safari. We were ready to relax and unwind and Fundu didn't disappoint. The bar on the wharf is a great place to watch the sunset and the cocktails are reasonably priced and delicious.

I am so pleased that you found Fundu Lagoon to be the perfect answer to help you relax and chill after your long and busy but highly enjoyable week of travelling, attending a wedding and enduring a bumpy safari! Your kind comments about the fresh fish and food on offer to our guests are very much appreciated, and I was delighted to read that you enjoyed your full body aromatherapy massage. As you witnessed, the weather can change rather suddenly, so I’m sorry to hear that you got soaked after your lovely snorkelling trip, but at least the rain is warm! Thank you for your advice to potential future guests with mobility issues who might be thinking of staying with us. Fundu Lagoon is not suitable for people who are unable to walk easily or climb up steps. As you saw for yourself, we are situated on a huge site (42 acres), and the hotel and various areas are spread out and up over a large part of it. Thank you also for your tip about keeping the shower drain cover in place when it’s not in use. Feedback from our clients is most important to us, so thank you for taking the time to write your review – it is very much appreciated Ellis Flyte (Creative Director) c.c. Ramon Ribes (Manager)

Our second visit to Fundu Lagoon was as good as, if not better than, our first in March 2017. This time we were fortunate to stay in a Superior Suite with our own private plunge pool and direct access to the beach. The food was superb, the company was great and the staff, many

We love all of our clients at Fundu Lagoon, but those who revisit us are particularly special, and I’m delighted that feeling is reciprocal! Our staff are always so happy to see returning guests, as it is a great compliment to them and their hard work that you both wanted to come back to the resort. I’m very happy that you enjoyed your stay in a Superior Suite with its private plunge pool and beach location too. You’re absolutely right - ‘the Fundu family is very special’ and we are privileged to have you both as a part of it. Ellis Flyte (Creative Director) c.c. Ramon Ribes (Manager)

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)

Many thanks Ellis, that is very useful. Please can you advise the cost of the snorkelling trip to Misali. Thank you.

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)
