The Funzi Keys




The Funzi Keys

The Funzi Keys unique appeal is its luxurious seclusion and beautiful natural scenery. Tucked away on an unspoilt island in the Indian Ocean, yet only 15 minutes flying time from Mombasa. Surrounded by water and superbly located on a west-facing beach with glorious views of the African sunset, this remote and exclusive hideaway is the perfect place to escape from the outside world in style.


Funzi Keys is designed to blend unobtrusively with its idyllic beachfront setting and to reflect the influence of the local culture and coastal architecture, the accommodation 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. Beachfront cottages additionally have a jacuzzi with spectacular sea view. All 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.

Activities at Funzi Keys

Perhaps, just the thing needed after an exhilarating time on safari. Life at The Funzi Keys is relaxed and many guests do little more than unwind on the Mazeras stone deck of the 45m free-form pool with a drink while watching the local fishing dhows sail by.

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!

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