&Beyond Mnemba Island rejuvenated by renovation

&Beyond Mnemba Island rejuvenated by renovation

A recent refurbishment at &Beyond Mnemba Island, off the coast of Zanzibar has created even more exclusive and intimate lodge on this private island paradise.

In a secluded location in a coastal forest, each of the ten bandas peeps out onto its own stretch of white sand. 

The bandas are set between the edge of the forest and ocean and each now has its own exclusive beach sala, where guests can drink and enjoy the ocean views while reclining on a comfortable baraza seat or day bed.

A dining table and personal bar cater for private dining or snacks, while guests can also rinse off in the open outdoor shower after their swim.

Reached by a covered walkway, the en-suite bathrooms have been refreshed and in keeping with the island’s aura of relaxed exclusivity, the lodge has been reconfigured with intimate nooks where families or small groups can enjoy delicious, freshly cooked seafood or sample exotic cocktails in privacy.


Renowned for its flexible approach to cuisine, &Beyond Mnemba Island now offers even more refined menus and creative serving ideas, as well as elegant new cutlery, crockery and bar accessories.

The already spacious dive centre now boasts the addition of a sitting area where guests can unwind after the excitement of diving some of the Indian Ocean’s most unspoilt coral reefs.
