Host Information

Host review score

Away from the crowd of mass tourism, and immersed in the charming atmosphere of Chuini village, Jabar Lodge offers four exclusive bandas in traditional makuti with veranda and sea view on the magic Zanzibar sunset. Enjoy your breakfast or meals on your private veranda, Jabar Lodge is a perfect place to relax, to walk on the beach around the ruins of Sultan’s Palace or to observe the fishermen and the atmosphere of local life in the village. It's an ideal base to organise private trips to Prison Island and snorkeling in the crystal waters of Nakupenda island, to visit a spice farm or Cheeta's Rock.
