Marafiki Beach Hotel - Anza

Hotel in Matemwe

Located on Matemwe Beach, Marafiki Beach Hotel - Anza offers accommodation with a bar, a swimming pool, a garden and a 24-hour front desk for your convenience. We loved our stay at Marafiki. The pool, the people, the cocktails and the long walks on the white sandy beach. Every detail was thoughtful and we loved that it was never crowded. Would highly recommend it.

Zava Nungwi

Hotel in Nungwi Beach, Nungwi

Zava Nungwi is set in Nungwi, within 20 metres of East Africa Diving and less than 1 km of Nungwi Mnarani Aquarium. Popular points of interest nearby include Spanish Dancer Divers and Nungwi Beach. We spend two weeks on Zanzibar but this by far was the nicest accommodation. The location was splendid and just right at the beach. Every morning a delicious breakfast was included with the finest fruits, fresh (non-instant) americano or cappuccino and a meal of choice. This place is located between cute restaurants away from the big resorts and on the more cozy part of Nungwi beach. Everything was perfect but what made this stay the best was the super friendly staff that was so willing to help. We extended our stay twice just because we loved this place so much. Thank you Zava!!
