    Great arrival from the sea, lovely, bungalows fascinating ... and maybe the best; the night listening to the wind and the ocean - wow! The reef was good, a lot of fish and corals, though much of the corals bleached. Friendly and helpful manager.

    Less than an hour snorkling on the reef is too short, should have more time drifting along more of the reef ... i.e. two boats should open for flexibility ... and the guides (?) didn't add much to the experience. 1000 USD for one night (two cabins) is too expensive - and it is a shame that there was not enough food (buffet) for all for dinner! Taking the price into consideration, a beer/glass of wine could be included for dinner.

    The whole experience of being isolated in an island. Snorkeling in one of the most amazing protected coral reefs is included in the price of the room EVERY DAY. With a few small improvements this hotel will be in Condé Nast Traveller as one of the hottest in the world. The staff is fantastic.

    It’s hard to say something, because the experience is unique. But the mattress could be definitely better. I think a hotel should always remember that is a place to relax and the mattress should be top quality.

    All. The island, the staff, the idea, the food.

    I didn't know in advance that we would have to sign a risk statement before leave Zanzibar to Chumbe. In my opinion this must be indicated during the reservation process. Not that there were risks or hazards in the premises but I didn't expect it.

    What a spectacular location. Remember, travel here because you want to see the wildlife. Spend as much time in the ocean as possible. If you are a traveler who prefers to stay indoors, or wants to stay in extravagant accommodations, note that this location is not designed for that purpose, but for people who want to be closer to nature and to learn about the unique ecosystem. If you come expecting to be pampered, you won't necessarily be disappointed, but again the purpose of the resort is education and conservation. The complimentary lemongrass anti-mosquito cream is also amazing and deserves its own special shout-out.

    For a small island, staff were at times a bit hard to find. One evening, my bungalow also had a small technical problem which left me temporarily without electricity, but this was quickly fixed. Overall, excellent experience.
