Designed to blend unobtrusively with its idyllic beachfront setting and to reflect the influence of the local culture and coastal architecture, the accommodation at Funzi Keys consists of nine spacious sea front cottages set along the high-water line and eight sea view cottages, all constructed of stone and thatch with large netted windows open to the balmy sea breezes.

Each of the individually designed rooms has a hand carved king-sized four-poster bed and is furnished with local wooden artefacts and colourful fabrics plus a Jacuzzi with spectacular sea view! All Funzi's beach front cottages are provided with fans, safes and beach accessories in the oversized bathroom. In front of each cottage is a private sitting area where guests can enjoy a drink and watch the sun go down in total privacy.

At the heart of The Funzi Keys is the informal yet stylish main building, where guests can relax and enjoy refreshing drinks served from the dhow-shaped bar or sample delicious island fare featuring freshly caught seafood and locally grown fruits and vegetables in the upper-level restaurant that overlooks the water.

Other activities

Life at The Funzi Keys is relaxed and many guests do little more than unwind on the wooden deck of the 45m free-form pool with a drink while watching the local fishing dhows sail by.

But for more energetic guests it is possible to enjoy sailing, creekfishing, windsurfing and canoeing or perhaps take a boat trip up the Ramisi River or Funzi Creek for an unforgettable glimpse of kingfishers, crocodiles and even dolphins!

The Funzi Keys is an excellent base for deep-sea fishing and scuba diving in the Pemba Channel, which can be arranged and paid for locally.

Funzi Keys - Kenya

Our opinion

Set ever so slightly north of Pemba Island, the multi award winning Funzi Keys ticks many boxes. It's family owned and run. It’s built in a traditional sympathetic style. It serves good food when you choose, and you can do as much or as little as you like.

Funzi is very relaxed with no dress code, no TV, no newspapers, no room phones and no clocks, however it’s hard to see why you would need these things whilst relaxing in your private Jacuzzi or sipping cocktails on the pristine beach.

Funzi is perfect for divers, honeymooners or romantics.
