An unspoiled private tropical island
For a genuine Robinson Crusoe experience on a remote and secluded island, then Fanjove is the place for you
This exquisite natural is a private island which guests share only with the abundant resident marine life and the dedicated staff, who help to deliver the experience of a lifetime.
Intact coral reef spans for miles; the prolific wildlife includes spinner dolphin, green turtles and humpback whales. On Fanjove, time seems to have no pull, and guests feel privileged to alight upon this pristine island – an unadulterated paradise, still very much as nature intended. Only the 19th century lighthouse and some architectural remnants of a former fishing village settlement hint at previous occupation by anything other than wildlife - evoking thoughts of historical discovery, desert island life and adventure.
The 6 eco-friendly bandas are all made of natural materials with A-framed roofs shaped to resemble a Dhow sail, reflecting the local traditional sailing boats which may break the endless horizons as you gaze out to sea. The whole property is designed to minimize the environmental footprint and as such solar power is employed for all the rooms.
An open-air restaurant and lounge area is the ideal focal point at the end of the day, from where to gaze at the starlit skies and appreciate the undisturbed surroundings. Appetising fusion cuisine is served on understated yet stylishly-dressed tables on the beach.
Aside from simply relaxing and taking casual beach walks, and eating some great fresh food, there are a number of activities you can enjoy including, snorkeling, diving or whale and dolphin watching.
3% of the income from Fanjove is donated to the local community of Songosongo island for social development projects.
