Fatuma House

Hotel in Paje Beach, Paje

Fatuma House has a restaurant, outdoor swimming pool, a bar and garden in Paje. This 3-star hotel offers a private beach area, an ATM and free WiFi. Wow this is our favorite place in Paje, we felt immediately at home! My friend and I both had video calls for work and they worked perfectly without any interruptions. We worked mainly in the restaurant area because Wifi is a bit weaker in the rooms, but still works well. The food was amazing and we had zero complaints. It's a great place to stay during ramadan, because you can still have a nice vibe with music playing by the pool and lounging on the swinging beds. We had visitors come hang out with us at the hotel and they all were very impressed with this place as well. The owners were so sweet, and a personal shoutout to the staff Roger and Bea for showing us around. We'll be back! <3 Cassie & Ellie

Marafiki Beach Hotel & SPA

Hotel in Matemwe

Located on Matemwe Beach, Marafiki Beach Hotel & SPA offers accommodations with a bar, a swimming pool, a garden and a 24-hour front desk for your convenience. The hotel felt new and luxurious all around and the room was very stylish with thoughtful touches with beachfront view which was amazing! The staff was very friendly and welcoming and the food at the restaurant is the best, we ate there almost everyday despite having other options. The hotel is excellent, but keep in mind that it is in Matemwe which is not the busy tourist part of Zanzibar but it is perfect for relaxation away from the crowds. The beach is not the best in Zanzibar but the property is right up the beach so it was beautiful for us. All in all we loved our relaxed and comfortable stay at Marafiki!

Kizikula

Hotel in Kizimkazi

Located in Kizimkazi, an 8-minute walk from Kizimkazi Dimbani Beach, Kizikula has accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, free bikes and an outdoor swimming pool. Location is exceptional. facilities are way above standard. Many activities nearby (paddle boarding, nature, walking around the coral accessed by a secret cave tunnel, ocean safari excursions, masseuse...) The best highlights are the quality of the food and drinks, everything sourced locally and sustainably (lemongrass, ginger, bananas, papaya, aubergines, chillies all found on site) and finally the tranquility thanks to the unique architecture and landscaping. This place is just on another level on all fronts and truly putting Zanzibar on the map for overall quality and hospitality. Kizikula is a complete sensory adventure!

COCO REEF ECOLODGE

Hotel in Kizimkazi Beach, Kizimkazi

Located in Kizimkazi, an 11-minute walk from Kizimkazi Mkunguni Beach, COCO REEF ECOLODGE has accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, a garden and a private beach area. Me and my partner spent 7 nights in this wonderful lodge, and we can honestly say that it has been our best stay ever! Starting from the hosts, Sandrine and David are amazing people, that will immediately make you feel like you are part of the family. Then, the best staff someone can ask for, Zakario, Amis, Atibu and the others, really do everything possible for your comfort, and they are very friendly and fun! When David took us to the room, I told him that it was "the best room I have ever seen in my life", and it is correct! A large room built in traditional style, with materials from the nature, it doesn't get better than this! The breakfast is amazing, large and very fresh. For lunch and dinner, for the whole week we ate there and we didn't want to change to another restaurant because every day it was freshly made and soo delicious, and we couldn't wait to see what there will be next for dinner. There is not a menu, which makes it even better because they make a different lunch and dinner every day, always with fresh fish, meat, vegetables... And finally the whole place is like a little place of heaven, right next to the beach with amazing views, and completely in the nature. So if you want to relax you can, but also if you want to go to a party and have fun you can also go with them. David and the masai in the night make a fireplace in front of the beach with some music which is also amazing experience. Also, don't forget to ask them for tours, they organize the best tours that you don't want to miss. Unfortunately we can't even express with words how wonderful the staff and this lodge is. We have never felt so sad to leave a place. Everyone should visit this paradise at least once in their life! We can't wait to be back! Thank you for everything, Ema and Martin
