AndBeyond Mnemba Island 3 Nights Luxury Beach Holiday
AndBeyond Mnemba Island 3 Nights Luxury Beach Holiday offers you a Barefoot luxury vacation at the AndBeyond Mnemba Island Lodge! Mnemba Island is located in the Indian Ocean about 3 miles/ 5 km off the northeastern tip of Zanzibar.
Mnemba Island offers white sand beaches, turquoise sea, tropical weather, beautiful natural surroundings teeming with wildlife. Enjoy the luxury of informality, no schedules, no need to dress up and show up, the feeling of freedom and simplicity without sacrificing comfort.
The size of Mnemba Island is only 1.5 km (less than a mile) in circumference. AndBeyond Mnemba Island is reached by a 90-minute drive from Stone Town through the lush spice plantations that cover main Zanzibar Island.
Guests wade knee-deep in the balmy ocean waters to board a waiting boat for a 20-minute crossing to a warm island reception.
Guest accommodation consists of 12 timber bandas, two of these can be linked to create one double-sized banda for family use. Each is approached along a sandy path from the beach.
The first thing you see is a shady veranda. This functions as a very pleasant lounge and dining space, featuring a couple of daybeds and a chic little table and chairs for private meals. The bedroom area contains a king-size bed with mosquito netting, bedside tables and lighting, a writing desk and chair, and a well-stocked mini-bar.
Continuing through the banda, you’ll find the en-suite washroom, which has a separate flush toilet, twin washbasins, and a spacious rainfall shower with a curtain constructed from gorgeous glass beads!
There’s some additional storage space in the washroom, and back on the beach there’s a private seating area complete with sunloungers.
Mnemba’s lounge, dining area, bar, library, and curio shop all occupy timber structures nestling amidst the trees. The lounge offers a long curved row of cushioned seating, facing towards the beach. The structure used for dining is positioned closest to the beach, and it features individual tables and comfy upright chairs.
Guests can choose to eat here, on their private veranda, or at a secluded beach location recommended by staff! The food and drink is exceptionally good. Breakfasts involve a range of hot and cold dishes, while lunches are tasty and light. A three-course dinner is served under the stars every evening, with storm lanterns lit all around.
Mnemba’s bar provides another great location to relax, with its own cushioned seating, occasional tables, and a few pouffes for a little variation! The library contains a couple of sofas and a good selection of reading material, as well as a television and some interesting photos on the wall.
And the curio shop stocks not only arts-and-crafts items but also clothes, accessories, and essentials. There’s no spa building, but in-room or on-beach massages are available. Guests who enjoy keeping fit on holiday can request a gym-in-a-basket! Yoga mats are offered too.
