Mnemba, an untouched atoll off the coast of Zanzibar, is therapy for the spirit. This is where Bill Gates comes to unwind and savour Mother Nature's delights, on our heart-shaped splash of sand in the blue depths of the Indian Ocean.

Mnemba lies 2 kms north-east of the island of Zanzibar. A pristine swathe of beach defines the island's one mile circumference. A protection zone conserves magnificent coral reefs where giant turtles, Ghost Crabs and tropical fish drift through the lagoons. The only inhabitants of the island are lodge staff and guests, offering luxurious privacy and unparalleled exclusivity.

Mnemba Island features just ten en suite banda cottages, bordered on three sides by tropical beach forest and overlooking the beach and coral reef. From each room, a palm-covered walkway leads to an en suite turquoise bathroom. Each banda also has a spacious outdoor verandah.

Lunch is usually served buffet style or on large wooden carved Zanzibar platters adorned with delicious African Mezze (fingerfood). Dinner is served in the dining area or alfresco style on the beach. A table is placed under the stars, where you may dine with the waves gently lapping at your feet.
