Stayed here for 3 nights in a standard non-aircon room, and totally loved it. Room was fairly basic but well presented, very clean, and as a bonus even had good pillows and high quality toilet paper. Amazing pool and spa, top quality food, and very friendly management. Plenty of sunlounges, hammocks and comfy areas to read, relax or use their... More

We stayed at Paje by Night on a recommendation by our daughter who lives in Zanzibar. What a nice relaxing place to be!! Every morning we were served a great breakfast in a very relaxing atmosphere. You are less than a minute to the beach or you could just chill out by the pool or read a book in one... More

I only tried the sea food (Lobster and Crab) at Paje by Night and it was delicious , I loved the atmosphere of the place; I would surely visit again whenever I am in Paje. I also managed to see the EPL matches around the restaurant.

This place came highly recommended by a friend who lived and worked in Zanzibar for a couple years. It was exactly as she described. Very relaxed and friendly. The staff was helpful and courteous. They also have a kite-boarding school. Paje By Kite was a great place to learn. My instructor, Melie, was very knowledgable and friendly. I also recommend... More

Located 1 minute from the beach and approximately an hour from the airport. My husband and I stayed at PBN for 4 nights to take a break from the Safari world and to enjoy the beach. Unfortunately we do not kite surf (as much as it looks AMAZING!) so we were slightly disappointed in the beach because although you spend... More

Paje by Night has really nice rooms and a restaurant that has more special dishes on the menu when you compare to the average restaurant in Paje. I like the steam-punk(ish) meets Tim Burton theme (at least this is how I would describe it). It has another style than all the other hotels/bar/restaurants in Zanzibar.

I really enjoyed my stay at Paje by Nigh. The ambiance is great and you can tell that a lot of artistic soul went into the decoration. I really enjoyed the disco ball illuminated pool, the great tunes in the common area, and all the hammocks you can lose yourself in. The location and food are great as well. I... More
