The place has massive potential and seems to be perfect on first sight. Beautiful beach location, nice traditional looking architecture (beach bandas) and many places to sit and hang out. The welcome was warm, when one staff showed us to our room. We had the first bungalow near the dining area (king size) and stayed in the appartment on top.... More

The Evergreen Bungalows are highly recommendable for anybody who is looking for an idyllic and peaceful beach vacation on Zanzibar. In early July 2014 we (3 women about 35 years old) spend 4 nights at the Evergreen Bungalows at the southern east coast of Zanzibar. Our time there was unforgettable and we truly enjoyed every second that we spend there.... More

I stayed at Evergreen for 6 days, and I am so happy that our group chose to stay there. Staff was wonderful, so nice and friendly and extremely helpful. Very warm welcome and easy to work with. If you go to Zanzibar, and want to experience a more local setting, I highly suggest staying on this side of the island,... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Evergreen. The staff and owners were so friendly and helpful and became our friends - Zanzibarian hospitality at its best. I would definitely recommend Evergreen as a getaway from the rush of every day life back home. It felt like a home away from home. The bungalows are perfect if you prefer something a... More

Nice athmosphere and very well managed. The premises are wonderful and full of palms, hammocks and comfortable sun loungers. The area is also really enjoyable, not too much is going on there like in busy Paje. Therefore we enjoyed the stay very much! Blue Lagoon for snorkelling is not far away! Was the best stay during our Zanzibar-trip (we stayed... More

We did a lot of research before settling on this place. We came to Bwejuu back in 1991 when there was only the Dere Beach Guest House (now sadly a ruin) and the Twisted Palms, and we really wanted the return visit to be special. We were not disappointed! The bungalows are so tastefully designed: a real Robinson Crusoe palm-roofed... More

Evergreen really is in a great location, I don't think I have ever stayed somewhere so close to the sea and going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the sea was a real pleasure. The beach has nice white sand, but the tide is very strong and goes miles out before coming right up to your doorstep.... More
