Mnemba Is­land

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

Go­ing on sa­fari is of­ten a very so­cial af­fair. From mix­ing with new friends over meals to hours spent with your ranger track­ing the more elu­sive cats, you can some­times go for days with­out hav­ing an in­depth con­ver­sa­tion with your part­ner. Which is why honeymooners usu­ally opt for a beach stay at the end of their trip—and if it’s a spot of soli­tude you’re look­ing for, Mnemba Is­land is your so­lu­tion. The ho­tel com­prises 10 beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated wooden beach­side vil­las that over­look a small clus­ter of trop­i­cal is­lands just north of Zanz­ibar. Be­cause the max­i­mum num­ber of guests al­lowed is just 20, this pris­tine stretch of white sandy beach feels pos­i­tively de­serted. Up the pri­vacy lev­els even more with a pri­vate mas­sage in your airy sit­ting room, or have din­ner for two set up on a se­cluded part of the beach. If you’re in the mood for some marine com­pany, the snorkelling and scuba div­ing are some of the best in Africa—watch in won­der as schools of brightly coloured trop­i­cal fish whip around the beau­ti­ful coral for­ma­tions.
