Wow, little bit of paradise once you drove through the village. This place's photo's don't do this place justice. It's beyond beautiful and staff always nearby to help and very friendly. We were 4 days in a seaview room which was amazing, as close to the sea as you'll ever get. Low tide beach and high tide BIG swimming pool,... More

After spending 7 nights at Amaan Bungalows with my girlfriend, we found the place to be very warm, cosy & hospitable. The service from the main office, resturant & pool guy was beyond excellent. I would definately book here again on my next visit just for the smiley faces of the staff who warm the best. Special thanks to Arshard,... More

Reason for choosing this specific lodge was that they had a diving centre on the premises and everything else you would need for an unforgettable diving experience in the north of Zanzibar. We booked a sea view room, however due to an overbooking between Africastay and Amaan, we ended up in a garden room with aircon. The sea view rooms... More

The ocean view rooms are a must at amaan, you probably get to sleep closer to the indian ocean than on any other place on the northern beaches, and for a reasonable price. It's truly stunning. The garden view rooms, whatever that means, take a pass. So why only 3 stars? The rooms are very basic, and food is also... More

After spending 24 nights in a tent, this place was beyond perfect. Service was friendly and efficient. The room was comfortable and clean, the bathrooms were large and the shower was always hot. The food in the restaurant was really good, the pizza was not the pizza you're used to at home, but it was still pretty good. The seafood... More

Arriving here after 4 weeks of camping was like arriving in an alternate universe. Paradise! Amaan Beach Bungalows are set right on the beach of the beautiful Indian Ocean. Amazing turquoise sea and white sand. The complex is like a little village with restaurants, shops, beauty parlour… amazing. Great breakfast buffet selection but they could do with more cooked breakfast... More

We booked this accommodation by emailing the management & their response was quick and professional. We chose an ocean front room and were so glad we did. The location was amazing. It was so relaxing sitting on the balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean watching the dhows pass by and the sound of the waves gently lapping underneath at night. Turquoise... More

I stayed here for 5 nights in both a garden room and a sea view room. The sea view room is a must and I would not recommend staying in the garden rooms which are dark and a bit run down. Sea view rooms are much lighter and have a little balcony that looks out on to the beach. The... More

Zanzibar with its beautiful ocean was wonderful, however the Amaan Bungalows are to be avoided. Firstly, the food was poor in comparison with other hotels and restaurants in the same vicinity. Basic hygiene standards were not adhered to either in the kitchen or the restaurant itself. The rooms were basic and very poor, however the view from the sea facing... More

The complex has great atmosphere, especially pool area and restaurant are in good location and fun to hang out at. They are one of the few places that play some music by the pool as well. Unfortunately they charge too much for that in my view. For the same price the basic garden room doesn't have AC, is smaller and... More
