Friendly staff, great restaurant and fairly priced rooms. Option to go full board. Only 200 meter from the beach, opposite Ndame lodge. Wifi ok and hot water and airco in evening and morning. Beach is amazing!

Savannah & Ocean offers a great location, cozy atmosphere and decent food for manageable rate. Though not as good as some of the B&Bs located in Stone Town, Savannah & Ocean still manages to make you feel comfortable and safe when traveling to the east coast of Zanzibar. Located just a stone throw away from the beach and a smaller... More

We had a great stay at the hotel. The owner succeeded in keeping the african spirit in the hotel. The traditional look and feel of the hotel is just great. If you don't want to stay in a typical beachresort where the guests come by 100 to eat the buffet this is the place to be... The room were clean... More

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 a familly hotel has a cosy authentic African atmosphere and a tremedously friendly staff whom soon will tune you into a relaxing and distressing holiday mode.The hotel and its private beach is build in natural materials and with beautifully gardens and flowers who surround you.and two minutes walk to the beach from your room.

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....
