Company information

Jambo, Karola and Sebastian welcome you to Cocolala Beach House, our newly opened guesthouse in Nungwi - Zanzibar. We are passionate traveler and diving instructors, originally from Germany. Since leaving Germany in 2012, we have lived in various countries around the world such as Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Egypt and Switzerland. With the birth of our beautiful daughter Yara in 2020, we decided to travel around Zanzibar for a family vacation. We immediately fell in love with the island, its beautiful beaches, culture and the typical Hakuna Matata lifestyle. Having dreamt for many years of running our own guesthouse somewhere in a tropical environment, we immediately started looking for a cosy place on Zanzibar to make our dreams come true… and now, here we are. Our motto: Come as a guest and leave as a friend. Our manager Mr. Mohammed looks forward to welcome you soon at Cocolala Beach House.

Property information

Cocolala Beach House is our small, family-run gem on the white sandy beach in the northern part of Nungwi, Zanzibar. The guesthouse is only 5 minutes away from the city center with all its restaurants, bars and shops. A simple but cosy retreat. Cocolala Beach House consists of 2 main buildings with 8 double rooms and 2 family rooms. All our rooms are equipped with air-conditioning and have a balcony where you can relax and enjoy the sea breezes. You are surrounded by tropical plants and you can indulge yourself by simply hanging out, on one of our hammocks. Enjoy a delicious breakfast at our restaurant and meet new friends. On the white sandy beach in front of Cocolala Beach House you look out over the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean and experience beautiful sunsets.
