It was not our first visit to Mnemba, but we keep being amazed about how perfect and out-of-this-world this place is! The water is just more blue, the sand more white, the dolphins coming close to the beach, each room is its own house, its rustic luxury and beauty for the eye. New addition is a private wooden banda on...

We were on our honeymoon, & were absolutely thrilled. It took a night or two to settle into the rhythm of the island & work out the quirks of our cottage (number 12), and in the end we felt this was almost a private nature & marine safari. It was an adventure from start to finish and we saw so...

my wife and i spent a week @andBeyond Mnemba Island Lodge on the tail end of our honeymoon. getting there is no easy task (will take you at least two flights, a drive and a short boat ride), but it is definitely worth it! "barefoot luxury" sums it up nicely (we took our shoes off before boarding the boat on...

We spent 3 nights at this pricey private island hideaway. The 10 accommodations are spacious and stunningly decorated but in need of sprucing up! Nothing to do but water activities. Seafood and fish meals beautifully presented. Arrival is tricky walking through coral and shallow water for 10 minutes to board a speed boat. Climbing aboard the boat is challenging. Thank...

We recently stayed at Mnemba for 5 nights on our honeymoon. We were blown away by how special this place is. It is so romantic and exclusive. Service is like nowhere else. Our butler Tumaini went above and beyond to make us feel special including planning beautiful private romantic dinners for us. The chefs Ish and Anton were so accomodating...

My wife and I traveled to Mnemba actually in January 2016, but I only got around to reviewing now. The place was absolutely spectacular, to the point that you even forget the large sum you are parting with to stay in one of their beautiful, open air bandas. Of course, as an andBeyond property, they start you out by greeting...

My husband and I started our Tanzanian honeymoon here. When we arrived we were almost sad because we knew life would never be this good. The service, accommodation and natural setting are unparalleled. The food alone was some of the best we've ever had -- it was like having a private chef.

We went in 2014. After a bumpy ride of aprox.1 hour we arrived in a little local village opposite the island. The luxurious rooms are open ( no windows nor doors ) and being just a seconds away from the main island makes you feel a bit unsafe. The island's nature is as pristine as you can get and great...

I had wanted to stay on Mnemba Island for such a long time and finally got the opportunity when my husband and I celebrated our 10th Year Wedding Anniversary. However, there’s always a risk that when you put a place on such a pedestal, it won’t live up to expectations. Mnemba Island most certainly did. I will say upfront that...
