I don't quite know how to write about my Zanzibar beach stay in words. We were staying in Ndame Beach Lodge for 7 days, it was my husband's birthday getaway for 2013 and one of our final holidays before leaving Africa in September 2013. The things I loved about Ndame Beach Lodge are its location, the superb cuisine served by... More

Because the pictures of the lodges looked great, combined with the good reviews, we picked this location to stay for 4 nights. Well, to start with the positive things: in Paje area of Zanzibar this location is closest to the beach, there are easy chairs to lay in, a nice place to drink etc. On arrival, the personel receives you...

Loved our stay in Ndame Beach. Upon arrival we were giving a room that was dull and had a double bed and a small single bed (we had asked for 3 single beds) we asked to be changed and this was no problem. The room was clean with 1 double bed and 2 single beds. We had our own private... More

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel. The room is simple, clean and quiet. The view from the room is very beautiful with a perfect view on the blue sea ! The food is good and specially the pizzas !

We stayed here in July and had a good time. Our room (nr 4) was private, comfortable and clean. The restaurant had great food and the location on the beach was beautiful. We enjoyed the beach beds, the white sand and the azure blue sea. The staff and F&B manager were very friendly. We did some diving and the reefs... More

My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights after our arrival from the USA to Tanzania, and it was flat out amazing. The cabins were fairly basic, but that was fine because I was hardly ever in mine. The beach was clean and without seaweed. Plenty of places to sit around. The water was as colorful as the pictures... More

Ndame Beach Lodge was suggested to me by my Kite surfing instructor! What an amazing recommendation! I stayed there in July 14 with my family and couple of friends. It was absolutely perfect! The rooms are cozy and nice, village hut type, the rooms have all you need in this surrounding. The room is just in front of the beach.... More

Stayed for two nights and left very upset we didn't stay longer. Very beautiful setting with discreet bungalows hidden among trees and a beautiful beach with enough loungers.

We found this place by accident while driving in Paje. The beach is stunning (at high tide tough only) with the restaurant and cafe right in front. The place is very cozy with sand.
