We have moved up north to Matemwe to Green and Blue Ocean Lodge which has huge bungalows way too much food for... More

Had a fabulous time at Makuti! The room was beautiful, the service was excellent, the food was fresh and tasty- wonderful. In a quiet location with other activities, restaurants and nightlife a short walk or taxi ride away. The breakfast is lovely: fresh fruit, eggs, delicious bread, tea and coffee. A great way to start the day. The owners are... More

We stepped onto the soft sand of this hotel and were greeted with the kindest hello and biggest smile from Abdulli. The ocean was rolling up on the beach right beside the hotel's restaurant...it is a breathtaking place. Be excited for low tide...the ocean tide goes out almost 1 km and there are seaweed farms everywhere, a very interesting sight... More

My boyfriend and I travelled to Zanzibar after a week of Safari and found Makuti to be a great hotel to stay at. On arrival there was a problem with the electricity in our room but Peter upgraded us instantly to a superior room - we then stayed in this room for the duration of our stay. The food was... More

This place is simple and cozy. The food isn't all that impressive but it works in a pinch. The drinks are cold and the service is great, very helpful! There are beach hotels and restaurants walking distance from the hotel to explore and Makuti offers a list of fun activities and tours to take part in during your stay. We... More

We spent 4 days here. I was happy enough with the place itself. The staff was sweet and the food is okay. I was travelling with family and my smallest kid is only 21 month old hence the security was highlighted for me. The Makuti is a perfect place, long and flat shore, we could easily track the kids.

We spent a week with the great team at Makuti in mid October 2013. Couldn't have enjoyed the time there any better. Really friendly and caring team of people who run the lodge, from the time we checked in at the bar, to the time that the driver used by the lodge dropped us back at the airport in the... More

We had an amazing stay at Makuti. The owners are unbelievably warm and welcoming, they truly made us feel at home. The resort is beautiful, the rooms are as close as you can get to the water and are beautifully decorated. The entire staff is amazing and we felt like we could get good, reliable advise from each and every... More

Loved our time at Makuti in mid-August. Stunning beach, secluded location, friendly staff, delicious breakfast and meals. Our house was right on the beach, with beautiful white sand! Would recommend it to anyone visiting the east side of Zanzibar!
