I have been staying in this resort along with friends for 5 days after doing Safari in the northern parks. We decided to come to Pemba to avoid the massive tourism of Zanzibar and our choice went far beyond our expectations. This resort is located right in the south of the island and I think is the only one in that area. The rooms are really big, the private bathroom well equipped and the bed very comfortable. The resort also offers a really nice swimming pool and, most important, a restaurant located right on the terrace of the resort with an amzing view on the nature and the sea. With regard to the restaurant, a strongest point is the presence of a very skilled chef which is able to prepare dishes of extremely high quality. The quality of the food is actually higher than most of the place you can find in Europe. Luca, one of the manager of the place, has been really helpful with us and he has organized really nice excursions which made our holiday unforgettable. One of the best quality of this place is that it offers everyday the transport (emerald bay resort has his own boat) to sandbanks that are really breathtaking. Tanzania is really influenced by tides so everyday you have different places where you can go.
Definitely, Pemba is one of the less impacted place in the world and it is highly recommended. Emerald bay resort will contribute to make your stay unforgettable.
