Spent 9 days at this lovely lodge and had the most relaxing holiday ever. The location is great, bungalows are laid out in a beautiful lush garden only meters from the beach. The beach itself is very clean, stretches for miles and offers stunning views when the tide goes out. The Management and the staff are a great team, very... More

The hotel was stunning. It looked perfect set amongst the trees and sand. When the tide went out it was one of the most stunning views, especially when the colourful Maasai strolled along the beach. My room faced onto the beach and was clean and spacious. There was a huge spider outside the door, so I do have to apologise... More

Here you can forget about everyday life and just enjoy the sea and wind. An absolutely wonderful team of staff will take care of you and teach you what Hakuna Matata really means. Good kitchen and many excursions to choose from. and so the beautiful Masai who guard and sells crafts.

Having arrived in Zanzibar in the middle of the night, I was pleasantly surprised to wake up to the beautiful scenery of Paje beach staring right at me from my lodge window. I cannot recommend Ndame enough for the beautiful location and pleasant staff. The lodges are located right on the beach, you can literally roll out of bed and... More

I have had a most enjoyable and relaxing 10 days at Paje beach in Zanzibar and for the biggest part this is thanks to my stay at Ndame. Communication during the booking process was clear and quick.

My personal opinion is that no one could say Ndame isn't good..it is way above good! I would recomend to everyone who want to go to Zanzibar to visit this place even just for a dinner..food is delicious! They can be sometimes a bit slow in bringing what you have ordered, but that is because they are overbooked.
