A small, friendly, owner run hotel on the South East coast of Zanzibar - the hotel is on a 5 acre strech of lovely sandy beaches and tropical palms.
The owners, Sue and Andrew Page, hail from England but spent many years in France running a chambre d'hote with acclaim for their food and hospitality. Echo Beach has been built and furnished by local tradesmen and designers usuing traditional Zanzibari build and artifacts.
There are currently 10 villas (or 'bandas') all privately spaced out with verandah areas overlooking the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. There is a family beach villa which can be used as a honeymoon suite, and 2 2-storey cottages, which are good for families.
The tide does go out a long way on this stretch of coast, so the large swimming pool is a welcome cooling off spot on a hot day! There is also a jacuzzi for unwinding. On site there is a PADI dive centre and a beauty spa.
The restaurant is run by Andrew with his classic French training and local chefs using the vast array of ingredients featuring lots of lovely fresh seafood bought directly from the fishermen on the beach. The half board rates include a 3 course dinner and meals can be arranged al fresco or privately on your verandah.
Diving, snorkelling and other local excursions can be booked from the hotel.

Client Rating for Tanzania 5/5 from 217 reviews
Echo Beach was wonderful but very tired. Lots of things needed some attention and money spent (ripped bedspreads, some sunbeds were beginning to break, cushions and covers in poor state, outside beach bar ruined in a storm and not repaired so not in use which was a shame, pool light wires not attached to any lights, beach defences collapsed etc) but we loved it there. Food was exceptional and the highlight. Loved the beach and water sports in neighbouring Breezes were great.
