Ever dreamed of being on a beachside 'banda' on an proverbial paradise island with service at your finger tips? Mnemba Island off the northeast coast of Zanzibar is just that.

Mnemba Island

Mnemba Island is small beach paradise just off the northeast coast of Zanzibar surrounded by exquisite beauty. Getting there is a breeze with their exclusive chauffer service from Zanzibar Airport that connects with a relaxing twenty minute boat trip to the island.

A mere one and a half kilometres in circumference, Mnemba Island takes a maximum of twenty guests. Ten private, thatched bandas are footprints away from the beach with private verandas and sunbeds shaded by tropical forest. The service here is phenomenal with dedicated butlers at your beck and call who regularly surprise guests with unique, thoughtful delights! Guests feast daily on fresh fruit, fish and shellfish enjoyed most at the water’s edge.

Relaxation and water sports are the order of the day here. The island is a playground for snorkelling, swimming, kayaking and windsurfing. Other remarkable attributes include their fascinating green turtle population, peak season April to August, and bottle nose dolphin sightings. Guests can delight in a relaxing massage on the beach or in their banda! Soak up the breathtaking backdrop of white sands, blue seas and traditional dhow vessels scattered on the horizon.

This fantasy island is the essence of rest and relaxation!
