Wow! I could gush for hours. This is most definitely the place to stay. I would recommend at least 4 nights.
My husband and I are world travellers, we have done every continent and this in mind. I would say Sunshine Marine Lodge has got the mix absolutely spot on.
The lodge is about a year old now, so still very new....everything is still fresh and new. The lodge design is spacious, it exudes relaxation and tranquility.
The rooms are fantastic. Bathrooms stunning. Housekeeping is excellent, everything from making sure the rooms are super clean, replenished and each evening turndown service.
The staff in general were amazing. On arrival we were met by Lucas, and his accommodating attitude really set the tone for our stay. The staff and especially management really really care and it shows.
You are made to feel so welcome.
The quality of the cocktails and food was a delight.
The pools ... there is No better ... They are the BEST!
The view of Mnemba Island can not be beat.
The lodge is built on a small cliff so at low tide you can wander around the rock pools, its truly beautiful.
They have an on site diving snorkeling operation. We did a snorkeling trip to Mnemba Atoll Reef... it was a well worthwhile outing.
I can not recommend this Lodge enough. .. It is absolutely fantastic. If you want to relax in a phenomenal chilled atmosphere, THIS IS THE PLACE!
