Had a wonderful experience at the Dhow Inn. Not only is Paje beyond beautiful, but this was definitely the nicest hotel that I saw while I was there. The service was wonderful and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. The breakfast (which is included in the price of the hotel) was incredible - best meal I have had all... More

This is a very nice and quite hotel. It is perfect if you are looking for a relaxing place to enjoy the amazing beach of Paje. Apart from a private area in the beach, the hotel has nice areas with swimming pools. We had a very pleasant stay. In general, it's a good and clean hotel. However, the service could... More

Nice bungalow, good food and great stuff. As there is not much to do in this area, it's even more important, that you have a good place to stay and for us the Dhow Inn was simply the best accomodation we could have in Paje!

My fiancée and me stood 2 weeks at this hotel in August. This hotel did perfectly match what we were looking. A quiet, nice, comfortable base camp from which we could explore around and then settle down when we needed to. The rooms are large, super tidy and clean and by a pool we shared with some other rooms around.... More

The hotel itself is nice, but I typically include food as part of the overall experience, which is why I couldn't rate it any higher. Honestly, the food was not eatable. Also, the creepy wall/alley that leads to the beach was an inconvenience (there were also 2 used condoms in the alley). Ugh. There is a sweet cat named Sandy... More

We stayed 4 nights at the dhow inn, as a family with young kids. We are not convinced... We are regulars in ZnZ and on paje beach, which is absolutely stunning. We decided to try something new...and we are not convinced. There are much better alternative, not from the hotel building/ set-up itself, but on overall pleasure. The hotel looks... More

I really regret to have only read the very last comments on Tripadvisor before going to Dohw Inn. I have just seen the comment written by "Time2FlyNow" dated January 9, 2013 when I came back from Zanzibar and I 100% agree with his comment. The hotel is situated 200m behind the beach and surrounded by very high walls. Not really... More

Staying here now and the place is quite nice with a private beach and beautiful setting inside the hotel. Unfortunately I cannot recall the last time I had food this bad in my life. Half the reason I travel is for the food and this place was a complete let down in that category. Last night's meal was a tough,... More

We last stayed at the Dhow Inn a couple of years ago and were amazed at the scale and quality of their remodelling when we returned recently. This place stands head and shoulders above the neighbouring resorts. Great rooms - comfortable and spacious with a great bed - excellent breakfast with a stunning sea view, happy & helpful staff and... More
