Pemba Lodge: Pemba Lodge, but not in Pemba

Previously known as the Pemba Channel Fishing Club with a world wide reputation for angling finesse. Currently buildings being demolished and the site looks like Heathrow T5. Owners have fishing boats up for sale. Catering is excellent though service slow - but thats the place, natural enough.

Better lodging choices are Betty's Camp, Shimoni Coral Reef Lodge, Shimoni Gardens Resort and for budget types, Eden Bandas. A little further away is a small no frills gem - Mwazaro Mangrove Lodge.

Though all these have shortcomings they don't charge you for them.

Pool is great, nice views across the channel. The owners like to claim the lodge is their private home so you are probably subsidizing it.
