The swathes of white sand which fringe Fanjove are warmed by the soothing waters of the Indian Ocean. A stay on this private island offers you the epitome of barefoot luxury.

The gentle sway of the palms and rhythmic sound of the gentle waves is the perfect antidote to a Tanzania safari. One of the highlights of your stay will be arriving by traditional dhow.

Once ashore, watch your first sunset from the top of the newly resorted 19th century lighthouse. Dinner is served in the open-air restaurant which serves a menu of fusion cuisine and is directly brought to tables on the beach.

The chic accommodation on Laba Fanjove consists of 10 villas all with sea views. The eco-friendly design is solar powered, and each building is made from natural materials including palm leaves and thatch. Inside, you will find luxury furniture, mosquito nets, fans, two showers and twin basins.

Enjoy direct beach access from each villa. Activities on offer include a marine safari exploring the pristine 11-kilometre coral house reef where you could spot spinner dolphin, green turtle, and humpback whale. You can also take part in snorkelling, diving, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding.
