Babalao Bungalows

Hotel in Nungwi Beach, Nungwi

Babalao Bungalows has free bikes, outdoor swimming pool, a garden and shared lounge in Nungwi. With a terrace, the property also features a restaurant, as well as a bar. After a week at Babalao I can honestly say it’s one of the best organised and set up hotels I have ever stayed in. Big enough to include everything one may need, but also small enough to give an intimate feeling. The space gives a vibe of being perfect for couples, families, friends - anyone really. Every detail was so thoughtful. The art around the hotel and lighting is very classy, the pool area is clean and spacious for everyone to get a spot, the restaurant is cosy and the food tasty (with enough flexibility should you need it a bit different), the rooms are spacious with AC and fans. I loved the breakfast concept. The staff really make you feel at home and are very helpful (for example provided some free fresh Aloe Vera to treat sunburn); Max, running the hotel, was also beyond helpful in every aspect of our stay (be it advice on what’s a reasonable price for a coconut on the beach or finding a reasonably priced taxi ride). If I come back to Nungwi beach I won’t consider another hotel to stay at. Thank you, Max and the entire Babalao team for a lovely holiday!

Baobab Africa Lodge Zanzibar

Hotel in Mtende

Located in Mtende, 22 miles from Zanzibar Butterfly Centre, Baobab Africa Lodge Zanzibar has accommodations with an outdoor swimming pool, free private parking, a garden and a terrace. I travelled with my kids and to be honest this place did not feel like a lodge or hotel, it felt like home away from home. Everyone from the owners Eric and Sophie to all the staff were so warm, friendly and welcoming. They made it so hard for us to leave. We really enjoyed our vacation and we will for sure go back there. Thank you to all of the Lodges staff and a big thank you to Eric and Sophie for make our trip a memorable one. We will always remember this holiday.

TIANDE Boutique Hotel

Hotel in Pwani Mchangani

Located in Pwani Mchangani, a 3-minute walk from Pwani Mchangani Beach, TIANDE Boutique Hotel provides accommodations with an outdoor swimming pool, free private parking, a garden and a terrace. The property is so pretty- the gardens are beautiful and it’s a quick walk to the beach. Although TianDe isn’t directly on the beach, Mariola (the owner) has a friendly relationship with a neighboring hotel that is first row, so guests can spend time there during the day. The bar and restaurant area are lovely and the food is yummy and fresh- we tried breakfast, lunch and dinner. The pool is sparkling, and the staff is warm and hard-working. Our room was clean and comfortable, with A/C, tea/coffee, good shower, nice decor. Mariola and her boyfriend live on site- they are doing a fantastic job running TianDe with a lot of hard work and love. We wish them success and will recommend to TianDe to anyone traveling to Zanzibar.
