Lupita Island Private Island Resort
About Lupita Island Private Island Resort
Completed in 2005, Lupita Island is the ultimate private island retreat, offering luxurious accommodations set amid a pristine natural habitat. Located on Lake Tanganyika in western Tanzania, the second oldest and second deepest lake in the world, this 130-acre private island resort has eleven lavishly decorated, thatched-roof living spaces and two family cottages that have been strategically positioned to offer both privacy and breathtaking, uninterrupted views of Africa’s second largest lake.
The shimmering waters and sandy beaches make Lupita Island the perfect complement to an adventurous African safari. As a guest, you may enjoy a variety of water sports and excursions to tiny, virtually undiscovered local villages or simply soak in the tranquil beauty of the island from the privacy of your open-air room. Fun and relaxation are the rule here, and it is the ideal way to end a vacation before heading back to the real world.
Lake Tanganyika’s waters are clear and calm, providing the ultimate setting for water sport activities. Kayaks and canoes are available to guests to explore beaches around the islands. Snorkeling and PADI-certified scuba diving take you to the underwater world of Lake Tanganyika, which teems with hundreds of species of cichlids found nowhere else on earth, while water-skiing and sailing provide a great and adventurous way to exercise. In addition to the water, one can lounge on the beach or by the pool, which includes a full bar.
Cooling breezes flow through Lupita’s dining room, which sits at the highest point of the island. The calm ambiance and extraordinary view of the lake delights the eye, but it is our menu of fresh fish that satisfies the palate. Our chefs specialise in modern African cuisine, prepared with fresh local ingredients and always accompanied by our delicious desserts.
Spa: Our spa is perched high on the hill so one can enjoy a relaxing massage, balmy breezes and an amazing lake view. A fitness centre is available for those requiring a more traditional workout.
