When you say "beach paradise"... this is it. Its not luxury or high end.. but perfect in every way. The place oozes rustic charm and you can tell the owners have put in a lot of love into it. There were very few people staying while we were there as was shoulder season...so was a very peaceful and tranquil time... More

We had been warned that so many places in Zanzibar are spoilt by over commercialization and harrassment from beach vendors. Mchanga is far removed from that. From the moment you drive through an old lived in village with people drawing well water and you arrive at the gates to Mchanga you are about to enter a secluded world of peace... More

Very highly recommended. We had 5 nights full board at this extremely comfortable lodge in February 2014, and couldn't fault it. Gloria and Thomas were a pleasure to deal with both planning the visit and during, and Frank and Ramsa were very attentive during meals and at the bar. The sea-view lodge we had was roomy and clean, with an... More

After our long safari this was exactly the place we were looking to relax and do nothing. Of our two weeks stay in Tanzania this lodge had the best food by far and the juice for the breakfast was always freshly prepared. The hotel environment was quite so you could enjoy the sound of the sea at all times. The... More

It was absolutely perfect. From the setting and decor, which were heavenly yet simple and unobtrusive, to the owners, who were attentive but, again, unobtrusive... to the food- amazing!!! I don't often write reviews so that really goes to show you just how wonderful I found the place. I went there on my honeymoon and I couldn't have been happier.... More

Wonderful location, the white sand of the Zanzibar coast does not disappoint. The sand extends into the lodge to give the impression that you are staying on the beach. Lovely pool, surrounded by palm trees, a perfect spot to sit and luxuriate in your surroundings. Super hosts, extremely helpful, while the staff were friendly and a pleasure to have around.... More

I was there for 2 weeks with my wife to honeymoon. We had a sea-side-view lodge which was on one hand lovely furnished and gave as on the other hand a nice view through swinging palms to the sea. We also enjoyed starting our day with a cup of early morning tea (and cookie) in front of the lodge to... More

Mchanga Beach Lodge is a wonderful place for relaxing. We came from safari and we felt like in paradise. Gloria and Thomas are very hospitable and helpful if you need further information about Sansibar. All rooms are lodges. We had a sea view lodge, with a beautiful view to the sea. The rooms are equipped with love to detail. We... More

As I´ve been at Mchangabeachlodge 3 years ago I was very excited to show my husband this piece of paradise! White sand beach, healthy and delicious Swaheli Cuisine, lovely rooms and the most friendly service I remember - what else can you dream of in your holiday?? I enjoyed two very relaxing spa treatments. Perfect for the skin after a... More

As a family we really enjoyed our 6 night stay at Mchanga Beach Lodge. Our rooms looked out onto the sea and it was heaven waking up to the sound of the palm trees and the sea. The staff were all excellent and made sure at all times we had what we needed. It is a great place to unwind,... More
