We guarantee the best beach holiday accommodation at Matemwe Lodge, a secluded venue, situated above a picturesque white beach featuring stylish upgraded rooms, with a deep-rooted charm.
Perfect Pongwe Beach Hotel is another simple and very popular accommodation venue alone in a private shady cove, a down-to-earth resort offering very good value for money. We love Shooting Star above the stunning Kiwengwa Beach, also a firm favourite amongst seasoned travellers. It’s run by charismatic Zanzibari staff and attracts a youthful crowd as well as many honeymooners into its lively social mix.
For Zanzibar holiday beach lovers who like to socialise and jive, head to the North Coast to find accommodation in private villas, chic beachfront resorts and trendy hotels. Voyage2Africa recommends the small family-run beach hotel with a warm heart called Flame Tree Cottages within a beautiful private tropical garden which fronts the famous turquoise coastline of Nungwi. Tuck into a cooked breakfast served on your private deck and experience early morning and sunset yoga sessions at the Yoga Pavilion on the roof terrace facing the Indian Ocean.
For couples who love seclusion and who believe in sustainable travel and ecotourism, make sure you stay in the south of Zanzibar where conservation initiatives hold sway.
