Best luxury hotels: Mnemba Island Lodge Zanzibar
18. MNEMBA ISLAND LODGE
Zanzibar, Zanzibar Archipelago, Tanzania
$2290 per night |
The most amazing sites at Mnemba Island Lodge can be found in the water. And that's saying something, because the land part is amazing too. Off the coast of Zanzibar, this exclusive island (yes, that means it's just you, a few other guests, and the staff) is a romantic paradise of palm trees and white sand, surrounded by coral reefs and the bath-warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
The island is a protected nesting place for green turtles, so they abound in the surrounding waters. Humpback whales roam offshore, along with dolphins and whale sharks. All that, and hundreds of species of coral reef fish, and you've got a scuba and snorkel paradise. Of course, the swimming, fishing, and romantic walks along the beach aren't bad either.
