Chumbe Island Coral Park

Mbweni

Chumbe Island Coral Park is a private nature reserve on Chumbe Island off Zanzibar. The park includes a fully protected coral reef sanctuary, forest reserve and eco-lodge.

Decorated with African decor, guests are accommodated in eco-style bungalows, partly open plan and overlooking the sea. The units have a sleeping area under thatched roof and a bathroom with shower. The spacious living area comes with a hammock to relax in. This place is exceptional. We stayed here for 2 nights, and it was one of the unique experiences of my life. The cabins are natural and comfortable, tucked into the forest close to the beach. The food was exceptional, with beautiful touches for evening meals (candle lit dining in beautiful spots close to the ocean). The staff were universally kind and engaging. There are activities organised each day, including snorkling on a pristine coral reef with great biodiversity, informative forest walks, and evening walks to check out the coconut crabs. There is also a lighthouse which you can climb, offering beautiful views of the island and of the sunset. The staff were even kind enough to offer us morning and night time snorkling, outside of the usual program of activities. In addition, Chumbe has genuine eco credentials. They practice minimal impact tourism, including composable toilets and water harvesting systems in each cabin. Profits are invested into training and education programs for local communities and students, raising awareness about environmental issues. All the rangers and staff seemed dedicated and highly responsible. I couldn't recommend this place more! Thank you Chumbe :)

Kisiwa on the Beach

Paje

For relaxation, the resort's spa has 2 treatment rooms and a lush courtyard garden. Guests can take a dip in the outdoor pool or relax on sun loungers. Activities on the beach include snorkelling, diving and windsurfing. The review was compiled by my tourist Wasily. He was vacationing with his family at a hotel in March 2021: "Dear friends, we came back home after great holidays in Kisiwa on the Beach. But every day we and our children Andrew and Sasha think warm about your amazing Hotel. Absolutely the all staff was very kind and careful, we were not denied anything. We would like to thank amazing Solome, Lucy, Tumaini, qualified Bonifacy, Justus and Abdallah special. The hotel was perfect, thank you! Now shortly about the Beach. Before our journey we read some comments that the beach is not one of the best for swimming. But now on our own experience we can say that the Beach is ideal- there were no urchins, the Beach was cleaned every day, so perfect for children and adults! We come back to you for sure to immerse into the atmosphere of full relaxation and to spend unforgettable days on the best beach of Zanzibar. It”s a pity we can’t put 100 points otherwise we would do it for sure)) "
