Michael (the Irish owner) really created a little paradise in Pongwe - beautiful houses built with natural material (old coral stones and coconut wood), possibility to take a bath with the view over the sea, endless windows and open space to hear the waves, have wonderful sunlight and enjoy the sunrise from the bed in the early morning. Moreover in... More

We went to Seasons last month. What a great place. Beautiful rooms, directy overlooking turqoise waters. Amazing food, great service, and best staff ever. Our 6 year old had a blast, and was very sad to leave our new friends. We love the island and will definately return to Seasons, thanx Mike, Buffy, Castiano, Noah, Cathrine, Hassan and not to...

An idyllically secluded simple bungalow set within its own walls in a large private garden directly overlooking the ocean with adjacent steps to the beach. Laze inside or outside on the deck, swing on a canopied bed or relax on a sun lounge. In the main hotel area it’s possible to breakfast and dine on a small private deck, admire... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this small boutique hotel. As we were the only guests at the very beginning of the season, instead of giving us a twin bed room, they gave us each our own cabin, which was super. We had a minor misunderstanding regarding the drinking water supplied to the rooms, but that was quickly sorted out... More

I stayed at Seasons the first week of March 2015. I was traveling alone and did a lot of research before choosing Seasons. My checklist was somewhere safe and quiet, clean with beach access but didn't need to be luxury, transportation options available, fresh local food, and relaxing. I also cared very much about being in a swimmable beach area.... More

This beautiful place faces east on the Indian Ocean about an hour from Stonetown. Private bungalows are simple with a rustic elegance. At high tide, the small waves inside the barrier reef lap the sea wall a few feet from your bed. At low tide, it is a spectacular white sand beach, 1/2 mile wide with many small seaweed farms...

Every aspect, every detail, every experience at Seasons Lodge Zanzibar was beyond what I could have ever imagined a relaxing ocean vacation to be. Arriving with my 3 sisters, I felt blessed that we could share in such an experience together. Christopher and his staff truly enjoy what they do....and they do it so well! Always greeted with a smile,... More

This spot of gold located in Zanzibar has proven to be a true gift of beauty. Not only was the location amazingly breathtaking but the hotel and it's staff were over the top wonderful! I have never before felt so relaxed and comforted as if it were my own house. Christoper, the hotel manager, and all his staff went above... More

Seasons Lodge is truly the most amazing place I have ever stayed. From the moment we drove up the narrow dirt road guided only by the sea of stars I knew it was going to be special. The huge wooden gates were opened slowly by a tall Masai and our car crawled down the pebble driveway. The manager Cycil Christopher... More
