Mnemba Island Lodge
The term 'barefoot luxury' might have been coined for Mnemba, a private, previously uninhabited island about 5km from the east coast of Zanzibar. At its centre is a tropical forest, home to nothing more dangerous than cute, spaniel-sized suni antelope and butterflies.
Our view of Mnemba Island Lodge
There's nowhere we know of that's quite like Mnemba. That said, if you're looking for a top-end destination for a super beach holiday in an exclusive setting, then you should be aware of the possibilities in northern Mozambique, the Quirimbas Archipelago. There you'll also find private islands with stunning beaches and pristine marine life, and they're also accessible from Dar es Salaam. That said, their service standards generally don't yet match those of Mnemba's polished and experienced team, but you're going for the raw material of the islands themselves - which are often just as pristine and remarkable as Mnemba.
