Me and my boyfriend visited Sazani Beach Lodge in January for 6 nights and we had a wonderful stay! It is very calm, peaceful and just a beautiful place to stay at. The managers are a couple and they are very nice people. Sazani Beach Lodge is on the end of nungwi so there is not so much that happens... More

The sea has precisely this colour, Lucia and Dirk are the nicest managing couple you could imagine, the staff is as friendly, funny and helpful as you could wish for and the restaurant offers food as tasty as words cannot describe. If you appreciate... More

Sazani was perfect from the moment we got there. It's obvious that the managers, Dirk and Lucia, are working very hard to make everything work and keep the guests satisfied. The atmosphere was familiar and warm and after a few days it truly felt like a home away from home. The room was simple and clean. The location was private... More

I’ve had the best time at Sazani Beach Lodge! This hotels sets itself apart from other hotels in the region by applying a concept based on ecological and social responsibility. I was also explained that the hotel is linked to a local NGO. The daily food menu is limited but ingredients are always fresh and locally sourced. It was delicious.... More

I loved staying here. I love the managers Dirk and Lucia. Warm, friendly and very helpful. I was travelling solo here (I'm 52 and female). I felt safe here the entire time. I was there during elections and did not see anything that made me feel unsafe. Not once. The staff are very friendly and fun. Food was good. I... More
