Great staff!Great place (20 meters from the beach). Very basic hotel rooms but clean. However, on such a paradise place that s all you need. I hope to be able to come back one day:) No fitness center and swimming pool but honestly who goes in Zanzibar to use fitness and swimming pool?

I rarely rate a place excellent and, although S&O wasn't flawless, the professionalism, hospitality and attentiveness of the staff earned it an "excellent." ---- that and the rooms have air con! We were already in Paje when we called Savanna and Ocean about a room (we were trying to escape a terrible place we had stayed the night before). The... More

It may not have a water front but it is 150m from the beach and has its own bit of private beach. For kite surfers, the centres are about 0.5km along the beach. The hotel is friendly and relaxed. Nice upstairs lounge for hanging out, music, TV, wifi, cold beer. Good sized rooms and bathrooms arranged around the common area.... More

Its not luxury or an extraordinary place compared with other places, but on the other hand its better than many average places. All in all its a very nice little hotel that works just fine, everything is clean and the place is lovely with a calm and relaxed atmosphere - a mix of young and old people - mostly scandinavians....

We stayed for a small week in Savanna and Ocean. It’s a small hotel in Paje. It’s not a luxurious 5 star hotel but more like a really descent bed and breakfast. They don’t have so many rooms and because of that its really cosy and peaceful. They have a small private beach in 2 minutes’ walk from the hotel... More

We are a family with four children, 5,7,8 & 11 years, and the kids love the place, the beach, the staff and the food. Safari arranged by Savanna & Ocean, in Arusha, was great experiences for life, the Safari guide Peter was such a good guy. He knew all about the animals, plants and local people, he was very nice...

De had a nice stat at the Savanna and ocean hotel. Furtheremore, we used their traveling agency to book safari and the Kilimanjaro trek from home. The payment was done via. Bank transfer to a Danish account, which is beneficial to Danish costumers.

We loved that the rooms are a very short walk away from the beach and all face in to a small, sheltered court yard. They are all clean and have working fans and good strong showers. Paje beach is spectacular - a long, white stretch of powdery sand. It is cleared of debris every day by hotel staff. There are... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We warmly welcome you to Savanna & Ocean Hotel in Paje on the beautiful east coast of Zanzibar. Here you can relax in the peaceful surroundings, while you are being swept away by the adventurous Zanzibar with its countless senses of impressions. When Zanzibar a few years back was given an honour by the BBC for being the world’s best holiday island, this was mainly because of the combination of paradise, adventure, history and the grand hospitality. Words that we do not just agree with 100 %, but also really believe meet the values of what we have to offer here in our little paradise hotel. We wish to inspire our guests with an authentic atmosphere and give them the opportunity to experience the many facets of Zanzibar and Tanzania. Our friendly and obliging staff will make sure that you get exactly what you wish for, out of your stay. We offer you one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, where you can relax and just dream away for a while, we are specialists within a big range of experiences for those who wish to explore that inner adventurer, we have local African art visible everywhere in the hotel area, and we offer short afternoon courses for those who would like to be introduced to the local language, Swahili or if you simply have interest in the Swahili culture in general. ... more   less
