Chumbe Island Coral Park

Accommodation on Chumbe Island is, in many aspects, something really special. It’s what Robinson Crusoe could only have dreamt about! Firstly, the bungalows themselves are so brilliantly designed that they provide both privacy and a sense of freedom of living in the open. Guests find these bungalows exceptionally romantic, but any individual with a passion for natural beauty will find these bungalows captivating beyond measure. All bungalows overlook the sea and it takes just 30 seconds to stroll from the comforts of your bungalow hammock to feel the warm tropical ocean lapping at your feet.
There are only 7 bungalows and all are equipped with double or twin beds, self contained bathrooms with hot and cold shower, large living rooms and handmade furniture. Being a Marine Protected Area (MPA) the focal aim of the Chumbe Island Coral Park Project is to preserve Chumbe Island’s exceptional environment. Accommodation has been built based on the state-of-the-art of eco-architecture and eco-technology.
The bungalows are perfectly blended with the surrounding nature and situated between the beach and the forest. Chumbe has seven stunning eco-buildings each incorporating state-of-the-art eco-architecture and using local materials with coconut palm thatch. They are especially pioneering because they are all ecologically self-sustaining with zero impact on the environment. Each has solar-powered lighting, private bathroom, cold & (solar-heated) hot water showers fed from a unique rainwater catchment system, compost toilets and grey water filtration through specialized garden areas. On Chumbe you can live in simple luxury on this paradise island in the knowledge that you are not damaging the environment of this spectacular nature reserve.
Chumbe Island Coral Park is the only accommodation present on Chumbe Island.
