Stayed in baobab room which was brilliant. Outside showers and facilities under the enormous 500+ year old tree. Comfy rooms with fans and coffee making facilities. Blue monkeys playing outside for entertainment. Beach ok but like most of Zanzibar very tidal so swimming limited

Dear Jgregers, Thank you so much for writing your feedback about your stay at Fumba Beach Lodge. Your feedback is very important to us and vital for us to keep on improving. we are glad to hear that you have enjoyed your stay, our staff, facilities and the magnificent sunsets. We are looking forward welcoming you back again soon! During your stay there indeed was some seaweed on the beach, although our dedicated staff do clean our beaches every single day. Every now and then, the ocean gives us a present in the form of some extra seaweed, which was the case unfortunately during your stay. Furthermore, in front of all our Suites and Sea View Rooms are beach beds and hammocks on the beach available, for our guests to enjoy. This does make our beach 'user-friendly'. We are looking forward welcoming you back again soon to Fumba Beach Lodge. Warm regards, Michiel and the Fumba Team

Dear Fiji777, Greetings from Fumba Beach Lodge! Thank you for your question. Both during low and high tide we do have a beach in front of the lodge. It is possible to walk to the village from the beach, which is roughly 1 kilometer of beach and sand. Warm regards, Michiel and the Fumba Team
