Elisma and the staff at Matemwe Baharini Villas were great hosts. Elisma checked in frequently to make sure I was well taken care of during my stay. The staff was extremely friendly and happy to help with anything. As I was just finishing up an internship, I wanted a slow paced, relaxing beach escape and this certainly fit the bill.... More

Our stay could not have been better. The resort under new South African Management with Elizma and Pieter is outstanding. The hospitality could not have been better. The villas are so clean, all facilities in great condition, the beach beautiful. I can highly recommend everybody, if with kids or without, on honeymoon or with friends, to spend their holidays there.... More

We stumbled upon this hotel, as mohammed's hostel next door was not to our liking. Upon enterance we discovered that baharini villas was recently re-opened. The last owner kind of let things slip and that resulted in the negative reviews o n Tripadvisor. These reviews are no longer valid, since the hotel has a new management! The hotel looked quite...

We were excited to get to the resort based on what we saw on the website and what we read in reviews but when we arrived we were a little disappointed. It was low season so the resort was dead, which is understandable, but the dining room looked depressing and there was no bar. When we asked about drinks the... More

Nice, clean and spacious villas at an extremely reasonable price compared to other places in Zanzibar! Good service. Food not all that great but a good experience overall.

After a beautiful vacation in Zanzibar and Pemba we were very disapointed in our stay at Baharini Villas in Matemwe. The bungalows were dimly lit and the bed had springs sticking out. Luckly for us there were few mosquitos on the beach as the net did not fully cover the bed and had numerious large holes in it. The bathroom... More

We've been in august 2011, me and girlfriend. It has been one of the best week in all my holidays. Very comfortable rooms, good maid service, very tasty kitchen, chefs are italian!! Sea in front of you, exposed by east so you can see wonderful dawn. Perfect if you search for a quiet and relaxing place.

For the price, the bungalows are reasonable value for over-priced Zanzibar. The room was clean, nutrally decorated, comfortable bed, good mozzy net, nice bathroom etc. The pool and gardens were lovely. Our one complaint is the service from the 2 (local) zombie-like girls int he restaurant. It seemed to us that unles you speak Italian, the service you receive is... More
