Perfect place to sit back and relax, staffs are very informative, friendly and are really helpful, the hotel is located a bit off the stone town (about a 10-15mins drive). Suitable for people who are looking for a place to stay away from the hustle and bustle. I spent a night there had a lovely time although the WIFI is... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Staff were friendly and organized a nice trip to the nearby islands for us. The beach is not great (highly affected by tides) but it is a nice and quiet place just outside Stone Town. Rooms are small and do not have cupboards or shelves for clothes, you basically have to be ready to leave... More

My friend and I stayed there for 7 days back in June. It was a great little guest house that is fairly close to town. We really enjoyed the stay there; mainly b/c of the AMAZING staff members. There are some pros and cons in which I will list them below; more PROS than CONS! Pros: •Close to town, about... More

Nice hotel, loved the treehouse, they had excellent drinks. The bartender and waiters were really nice. The owners were friendly. We had a good room. Its a small, cozy, fun hotel. Just fyi, if you are looking to spend your days in the beach and on the water this is not the right place.

I visited the Imani Beach Villas for three days of recuperation after summiting Kilimanjaro this past September. All I was looking for was a place to rest my head at night, a beach to bake on during the day, and all the food and drink I could put away. Imani met these modest goals with aplomb. I literally spent my... More

We stayed at Imani Beach Villa in August 2012, and what a wonderful choice we made. The staff were truly professional and the rooms were exquisite and always beautifully clean. They have the most beautiful tree house were you can 'wine and dine' whilst looking out onto the beach and into the sunset. The food was delicious and their cocktails... More

If you are looking for some tranquillity and peace, this is your place! Numerous little touches give evidence that this place is run by professionals (unlike so many others on this beautiful island): Spotlessly clean accommodations with authentic furnitures and generous bathrooms, everything in good working condition and all the staff genuinely friendly and helpful. Having said that, remember you... More

A real treat was the treehouse where we ate dinner and watched the sunset w a drink each night. Well priced and the team are helpful, friendly & welcoming ! If you... More

Imani is close to Stone Town, we took a dala dala every evening to eat out, but had to take a private taxi back, since we didnt want to walk in pitch dark the last part. But I loved staying there, trying every great cocktail they have in the beautiful tree house, candle lit. Rooms are very nice, as well... More

mani beach lodge has its pros and cons but in the end the pros outweighed the cons personally for me which is why I highly recommend them. Clean rooms, the tree house, proximity to the beach, spice plantations and prison island make it quite desirable, not as commercial and touristy as Stone town. Cons were if you planned to come...
