  • Is your private beach next to the property or do I need to use a means of transportation to go there?
    No beach in the whole of Tanzania is technically allowed to be private - all beaches belong to the people. That said, some are quieter or less accessible. Our beach is direct;y in front of the hotel, and this part of the very long silver-sand beach of Matemwe is relatively quiet and wonderfully attractive.

  • When is the best time to visit your property for the perfect beach holiday?
    Any time of year! Traditionally High season follows the Northern hemisphere school holidays (July/August, and over Christmas and New Year), however, the weather in Zanzibar is warm and enticing throughout the year. The monsoon seasons do bring rain, but in many ways, they are wonderful in their own rights - the rain on the East coast (driest part of the island of Unguja) is the least anywhere in Zanzibar and usually only lasts about an hour before clearing again into a glorious and sunny day. For those able to travel during these seasons, they are quieter and many places give discounted rates. Beach activities such as snorkelling and diving continue throughout the year unchanged.
