  • Swim, snorkel and dive

A Zanzibar beach holiday is an escape to tropical heat with beautiful beaches and gorgeous places to stay. Relax on sandy beaches lapped by the Indian Ocean, swim and snorkel over colourful coral reefs, listen to the breeze in the palm trees, savour the freshest seafood, and sip creative cocktails as the sun sets. This is the beach holiday perfected!

Since we are an independent company and we plan tailor-made holidays.  We can book any hotel on Zanzibar for you, and the choice is wide. There are larger resort-type hotels to small boutique hotels, but here are just four of our favourites at different price ranges.

You may find all you need right where you are and feel no need to stir beyond the hotel! However, staff at all hotels can arrange activities and excursions such as a spice tour, boat trips, snorkelling, diving and more.

This holiday is a slice of paradise that you really won't want to miss.

Fumba Beach Lodge

Fumba Beach Lodge is a small, quiet hideaway in the remote southwest of Zanzibar, just a 30-minute drive from Stone Town. It offers a great experience for a good price, and as one of our clients said: "Oh gosh, just spectacular! Incredible room, gorgeous view, amazing staff, so relaxing and luxurious! Perfect!"

Pongwe Beach Hotel

Pongwe Beach Hotels a little gem. It overlooks a quiet bay fringed by a coral reef, ideal for swimming and snorkelling, and has a gorgeous rim-flow pool overlooking the beach. Hammocks are strung beneath trees where you can doze, lulled by the sounds of the waves, and you can explore by bike or kayak as you wish.

Matemwe Lodge

A gorgeously rustic, yet high-quality lodge on the northeast coast of Zanzibar. It's a relaxed yet stylish place to stay, with great service and just 12 lovely cottages. There are 2 swimming pools and a water sports centre and spa.
