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. They can help you with travel information, transfer from the ferry at Stone town or the airport or booking day trips to swim... More

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.

A wonderful week on a beautiful beach surrounded by Masai and friendly Ndame staff, who did their best to teach us Swahili and introduced us to delicious local cuisine. Thoroughly looking forward to visiting again for some kite surfing and diving!

I stayed at Ndame beach lodge 4 nights during Christmas holiday. The location is great, just right next to beautiful and amazing Paje beach. The members of management and staff at the lodge were very friendly and helpful. I dined in the lodge every day. The dinner and lunch were delicious and the price was reasonable.

We spent 5 nights at Ndame Beach at the end of a 3 week tour of Zanzibar and our only regret was that we hadn't chosen to stay longer. The owners have created the perfect environment for you to relax and enjoy everything that is great about Zanzibar. The food was first class and the beach front location will not... More

We stayed there with our 2 kids aged 3 and 7 for 10 days in November 2014. We had orginally planned to stay 3 nights and then move to another part of the island, but we finally never wanted to leave Ndame! Location is perfect, the beach is absolutely amazing (like most on Zanzibar), the rooms are not fancy but... More

I spent 4 nights with my Mum at Ndame and could have happily stayed longer. Bungalows are set in a beautiful well-kept, peaceful and shady garden with views of the turquoise waters and white sands (50 metres away). The twin room we had was simple, but kept very clean, with flowers placed on the bed for our arrival and fresh... More

We spent two nights here in a triple room bungalow, facing the extraordinarily beautiful, seemingly never ending Paje beach. The accommodation was basic but comfortable, secure, clean, with a good size bathroom with hot water. There were mozzie nets/fans and shelf units but no hanging space. (I would recommend taking a universal sink plug as we stayed in three different... More

Thank you very much for your review of our little paradise on the beach. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our lodge!

Had the best time here. Hanns and all the staff, especially 'our girls' were just fantastic. The food was incredible, from the coconut curry to king prawns. The Massai show was aces, watching the local mamas go to work seaweed harvesting to full moon lighting up the endless beach was all mesmerising the staff and place was super chilled, didn't... More

Thank you very much for taking time to write a review. And AMEN to barefoot experience - there cannot be a lot of places in the world where even the staff walks around without shoes (at least some of them).
