HERO Tanzania & Beyond Mnemba Island Aerial

LOCATION

Your barefoot luxury paradise is found in the Zanzibar Archipelago, about a mile off the northeast coast of Unguja—the archipelago’s largest island. Measuring under a mile in its circumference, Mnemba Island is an exclusive swatch of white sand and emerald jungle set into the electric blue Indian Ocean.  

With the resort occupying the island’s entirety, it’s the perfect place to play at Castaway without any actual hardship (plus an actual butler). Look out at the gorgeous sea views from the deep sugar-white armchairs on your private veranda while nibbling on  sliced fruit and a basket of still-warm bread.

Contributing to your Robinson Crusoe fantasy is your banda’s thatched palm leaf roof, which shelters a space of elegant simplicity. The focus is on the supremely comfortable, cruise-liner-sized four-poster bed, its engraved headboard a gorgeous touch of African authenticity.

WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?

Besides being the kind of destination the memory of which will make you glassy-eyed, &Beyond Mnemba Island’s situation means that it’s only a short stroll to some of Africa’s finest diving opportunities.

If you’re keen to learn, head over to the resort’s on-site Padi Dive Center. Or just stick to snorkeling if you prefer to feel the warm sun on your back while gazing at the marine kaleidoscope below. Arrive anywhere between April to August, and you’ve hit peak turtle season.
