Fumba prides itself on delivering outstanding meals using the best ingredients and local flavours including lemongrass, ginger, garlic, cauliflower, courgettes, aubergines and carrots, and sun ripened succulent tomatoes. The lodge has its own herb and vegetable garden to guarantee freshness and the local area is home to the island’s most fertile soil providing sweet mangos, bananas, coconuts, jackfruits, passion fruit, and oranges.
Fresh seafood including succulent tunas, snappers, barracuda’s lobsters, prawns, and crabs are caught by the local fishermen and delivered on a daily basis and the focus of the menus are on elegant flavours with unpretentious presentation.
There are a couple of different locations at the lodge to enjoy a private and romantic meal away from the main restaurant.
In the Dhow FumBar is fashioned from an old dhow boat and overlooks the Indian Ocean and the infinity pool for those spectacular views and mesmerising sunsets. As the sun goes down you can even say hello to the resident bush babies that live in the nearby baobab tree.
A welcome addition to the lodge is the spa and massage therapy centre which offers a wide range of beauty treatments and a range of massages including Swedish, therapeutic, aromatherapy and Zanzibari scrubs. Treatments are designed for men and women and use natural ingredients produced locally. Made from coral and located under a magnificent Baobab tree, the spa has changing facilities and treatment spaces for couples and individuals alike.
The Jacuzzi is built into the Baobab tree itself. Shaded by rustling leaves, and overlooking the lush landscape, you can enjoy a romantic shared bath with champagne under the night sky, a day time soak, or a solitary scrub.
Fumba also has its own PADI dive and water sports centre offering a range of certifications and experiences for divers at every skill level. The diving team includes a qualified and insured PADI Master Scuba Diver Instructor and Dive master. All scuba gear is regularly serviced and available for hire but you are also welcome to bring your own if you choose.
