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

Positive: -Very nice big rooms, cleaned every day. - at the beach - one day I went for a walk and I saw that the next village (Jambiani) didn't have any nice beautiful beaches (lot of seaweed), so you should definitely stay in Paje. - nice friendly personnel (although sometimes a little to eager to teach you Swahili which can...

On arriving at the Ndame Beach Lodge, some large gates are opened, and you can then check-in at reception. I was staying in room 14, while my friend was staying in room 12 next door. These are on the top floor of a two storey hut, so if you can, I'd try to ask for your own private hut, although... More

asked to write a review by the management – so here it is: Very nice location on a pure white beach, very nice bar with good drinks. Rooms are ok, far enough from the sea to be quiet and still close enough, moskito nets, lines for wet beach stuff, nice for the price. Breakfast buffet was good. A la carte... More

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...
