Zava Nungwi

Hotel in Nungwi Beach, Nungwi

Zava Nungwi is set in Nungwi, within 66 feet of East Africa Diving and less than 0.6 mi of Nungwi Mnarani Aquarium. Popular points of interest nearby include Spanish Dancer Divers and Nungwi Beach. It was important for me to feel safe as a solo woman traveler. The staff was amazing. I was greeted by Dennis on arrival who was kind and full of smiles, he advised of great places to eat and which restaurants accepted credit cards. Eman was always there to help if I needed assistance with a taxi or anything necessary to feel at home and at peace. The housekeeping staff were full of smiles, and the restaurant staff where we had breakfast were always welcoming. The location is perfect. It’s right near good restaurants and of course right across from the beach. Also, the WiFi was strong. This was important because I work online. I never had issues.

SeVi Boutique Hotel

Hotel in Kigomani

Overlooking white-sand beaches and the crystalline waters of the Indian Ocean, SeVi Boutique Hotel is located at the north-east coast of Zanzibar, by the fishing village of Kigomani. I booked sevi hotel to fill a gap in my itinerary, since I will be staying on Zanzibar for another 3 weeks. This place rocks!!!! It exceeded my expectations in every possible way! I have never experienced this kind hospitality in my life and I've traveled a lot! Starting from George and Ania who stayed up and welcomed me in the middle of the night (my rental car broke down in the middle of nowhere so I arrived late), to the snack and fruits they had prepared for me because I missed dinner, the incredibly spacious and beautifully located room, the amazing food at the restaurant (best food I've had in Zanzibar and many other places), the impeccable service, smiling and well trained staff, everybody went the extra mile for me! I felt pampered all around and the icing on the cake was the great massage in the little but most awesome spa area I have ever seen, with a chillout pool amidst tropical vegetation. The hotel has 2 more pools, one of which directly overlooking the pristine white sandy beach and the ocean and even though the hotel was fully booked, the only sounds I could hear were birds chirping and the breeze going through the magnificent palm trees in this great garden of the hotel. I had the opportunity to chat with George (I have never met a general manager before who cares about his guests' experience this much) who gave me a lot of interesting insight on life in Zanzibar and the difference between my previous boutique hotel in the south of the island was just crazy! I'm going to cut this short, there are so many things I could write, but to everyone reading this, do not hesitate to book sevi boutique hotel! In fact, I have already cancelled 2 of the hotels I was planning on staying and I will return to sevi next week to stay till the end of my vacation, with my girlfriend who's joining me in a couple of days. This is the perfect romantic getaway, off the beaten track place, simply amazing!

The Island - Pongwe Lodge

Hotel in Pongwe

Set in Pongwe, 1969 feet from Kiwengwa Beach, The Island - Pongwe Lodge offers accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, an outdoor swimming pool and a bar. The Island, Pongwe, was the last stop on our trip to Tanzania and was such a highlight for us. Margo and Amine are the nicest, most hospitable hosts and really went above and beyond to make our stay truly special. From upgrading us on arrival, to arranging taxis and covid tests for us, to showing us some of Zanzibar's famous places, Margo and Amine really made us not only feel incredibly welcome, but also like old friends! During our stay Margo even arranged a special snorkeling trip for us (with packed lunch from their excellent restaurant!), where we had the incredible experience to swim with dolphins! The staff at The Island are also amazing-- everyone is very friendly, very competent, and you can just tell you're being cared for by good people. Amine and Margo also take care of two dogs and three cats they've adopted on the island, and while we were there we had the immense pleasure of meeting Kuku the resident red colobus monkey! All in all, one of the most memorable places we have stayed, and we will definitely come back at some point soon!
