It has been an exciting few weeks on Fanjove.

From a tense few weeks before the kulinda break ended with all of us were glued to every weather update that we could get our eyes on about cyclone Kenneth, to finally returning to the island and all of its beauty. The rainy season had left its mark as we were welcomed by lush green vegetation, giving a truly forgotten paradise feel to the island.  

Our arrival marked the change from sleepy to lively little island almost instantly. Days began early with unpacking, sorting and cleaning all with the excitement of little children at Christmas time as we knew, we would soon be able to share our paradise with our guests.

With opening day drawing closer all the final touches were being put in place and the task of resupplying began which in itself is an adventure and then some with everything arriving by traditional dhow you almost feel like you have been transported back in time.

Finally the day arrived and our season has begun, maybe you need to come see for yourselves just how beautiful it is out here on the island.
