Welcome To Fumba Beach Lodge

Where friendliness is part of the simple life

A Hidden Gem On The Coast Of Zanzibar

More About Us

Fumba Beach Lodge is a small scale, peaceful hideaway set on one of Zanzibar’s most secluded beaches. With only 26 free standing spacious cottages, the essence of Fumba Beach Lodge is privacy, space, relaxation, nature and attention to detail.

The lodge is located on the Fumba Beach peninsula, in the Menai Bay Conservation Area. This is both a large marine haven, and an eco-project. The Fumba peninsula is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty since 1998, by the World Wild Life Federation.



We focus on elegant taste, combined with simple and clean presentations, to give you the best cuisine Zanzibar has to offer.

We are using only the best ingredients which flourish under the African sun, such as: fresh herbs, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, cauliflower, eggplant, zucchini and carrots, and the most sun ripened succulent tomatoes you have ever tasted. Here on the Fumba Peninsula we have some of the most fertile soils on Zanzibar, giving us the most amazing, sweet, ripe tropical fruits: mangos, bananas, coconuts, jackfruits, passion fruit, and oranges.

Right on our doorstep from the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, our neighbors, the fisherman catch the most succulent tunas, snappers, barracuda’s, lobsters, prawns, and crabs. All of this fresh produce and seafood is delivered to us on a daily basis, and has been for many years now.


Next to Fumba Beach Lodge is the Fumba Village; like the site of Fumba Beach Lodge it was originally bush.

The villagers helped us finding this remote area, and with their help the lodge was built. Some villagers are still employed by Fumba Beach Lodge and the Sheha (chief) of the village regularly passes by to say hello.

Guests can ask at reception to be accompanied by one of the staff to show them around the village to experience the local culture and daily life.

There is a nursery school in the village as well as a primary to secondary school.

Fumba lodge gives back by providing support to the schools, small business plans, well-being, employing villagers, and in-house training.
