Me and my family stayed at Echo Beach in February/March and I cannot recommend this place enough. We are traveling with two children aged 2 and 5 and we felt very, very welcome. Both children and adults loved everything about Echo Beach. So what is that makes this place extraordinary? The food is very good and fresh. The bar, kitchen... More

We have just returned from Zanzibar & feel compelled to write due to the most wonderful week at Echo Beach Hotel. This was a late honeymoon/sabbatical/Martha & the Muffins-I quit-my-job/purposely planned Echo Beach trip. There are 4 Echo Beaches worldwide but we chose this one because of the distance & reviews etc. Echo Beach, Zanzibar exceeded our expectations & we... More

The whole stay was magical...Andrew is an excellent chef and the food served was 5 star... Sue kindly took time out of her day to take... More

Echo Beach is a small resort with only 9 villas in a beautiful garden giving privacy and I loved to spend hours reading on the big Zanzibari style bed on the veranda with view on the ocean. I stayed in the last villa in the range, the blue one, which is tastefully decorated and has a gorgeous bathroom fully tiled... More

On the beautiful East Coast of Zanzibar, the Echo Beach Hotel is a reprieve from the rigors of an Tanzanian or Kenyan safari. The beach itself is miles long (much of which I walked) and has the finest and softest sand I've ever had the pleasure to walk. The tidal pools are vast at low tide and you can spend... More

Andrew, Sue, and their team make this small place a unique spot to relax. They are great hosts, very helpful, and smoothly organized us a bunch of trips and an early dinner on our last day, letting us stay in the room late. We loved the cozy setting, the small number of guests, and the nice beach. And the great... More

Small Resort Hotel on a remote beautiful white sand beach personally run by Andrew and Susan. Located about 1 hour drive from airport on Zanzibar. 9 units so it is not crowded. 4-500 yard walk down the beach to a larger more expensive resort with a dive center. Diving and snorkeling is very good. We also were able to go... More

A beautiful location, lovely accommodation, superb food and great people. We booked for 2 nights initially, ended up staying 4, and were so sad to leave. It's low key, very stylish, smart but not swanky. This is now amongst our favourite places in the world - I'm sure we'll be back. (Will that do, Andrew?)

This small property (I think its about 8-10 rooms in all) is so well located on a quiet beach full of fine white sand and a lagoon full of warm sea water that they already have a head start on most places! Add to that some really good cooking, very friendly service, well maintained gardens and a nice pool and... More
