Fundu Lagoon

Tented room

The standard rooms at Fundu are spacious safari tents, set under thatch on wooden decks, but with two different aspects. Beachfront rooms, which are set right on the beach and have a number of loungers in front, are slightly more costly than the hillside rooms – although the difference is nominal. The hillside rooms may not have the beachside location – but the high vantage points give these rooms spectacular vistas. They also have extended decks with sunloungers, and they benefit more from the sea breeze.

In build, size and style the rooms are the same. All have a quiet shaded veranda at the front, with large comfortable armchairs, and steps leading up to the rooms, or tents. These are relatively rustic, with simple wooden décor and flowing cream fabrics – yet they are thoughtfully put together. Fresh flowers are set on your coffee table each day and the complimentary minibar is stocked with drinks of your choice. Torches, mosquito coils and spray are also provided. All the rooms have a lockbox for valuables and there is a ceiling fan for hot nights.

At the back of each tent behind a partition wall is the en-suite bathroom. These are relatively small and can feel a bit dark, though wooden panels along the walls give them a stylish edge. In practical terms, they are perfectly functional, with a hot-and-cold shower, single sink and proper flush toilet.

A lovely touch is the full range of complimentary toiletries made especially for Fundu Lagoon. Local spices are sent to the UK where the scents are captured in a variety of soaps and shampoos. There are a few to choose from, depending on your desired mood. There's even a 'day' range, and an 'evening' range!
