It was our first time to checkout the Lodge at Lighthouse Beach and we definitely hope to come back. Main thing is the very friendly and thoughtful service throughout our stay by all members of staff. Lovely food with plenty of fresh fish and vegetables and homemade breads. Best of all, it can be served at one's terrace or even... More

Are you feeling stressed and need to get away from town a few days? Then this is the perfect place for you. I was here for a couple of days and I enjoyed every bit of it. The staff was lovely, village people who were very welcoming with a relaxed and personal service. And the food they made – amazing!... More

After a week Lighthouse Beach we felt born again. The food is excellent and we loved that you do not have to choose all the time (well... shall we have lunch in our house or at the beach today?). The beach is super, swimming is safe and can also be done during low-tide. Our kids loved the dart board and... More

We stayed here for only two nights and we really really enjoyed. Our house was called the beach house and we loved the furniture in the house which was all made of dhow (traditional sailing boats) pieces. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very romantic. The staff is very friendly and food can be served at your own... More

This was my second visit to the Lighthouse. My first visit was in August with my husband and we were very pleasantly surprised. The staff are incredibly friendly and professional and although the accommodation is basic, the rooms are impeccibly clean (always with fresh flowers when you arrive) and each room has its own character. On this visit I came... More

We stayed for a few nights over the weekend and were really very impressed. Professional, accommodating and pleasant staff, relaxed and charming atmosphere, beautiful beach. We'll look forward to another stay. We had the rooms over the restaurant, which are not prime, but were still very comfortable and well done. One of them had a rooftop balcony perfect for stargazing... More

Lighthouse Beach Resort advertise themselves as your "home away from home", and they make every effort to make that come true. They will cater to your every need. The chef and baker are both excellent, and use local seafood and produce to concoct delicious meals 3 times a day. Some of the best meals I've eaten in Tanzania were served... More

We stayed two nights in August at our first time for ourselves (a couple) and a Labrador. We have been in Tanzania for over six years staying various resorts in the country, and we found this is one of the best. Facilities are not very luxurious but prepared with Norweigian sence and the staffs are full of African hosipitality.
