We stayed in Pakachi for four days and we were not disappointed. We completely got what we were looking for; a relaxing and friendly environment which restored our energies and harmony which we badly needed away from our hectic commitments. Pakachi beach hotel is run by a team of very friendly persons. Steve, Angela, Vene and other members of staff... More

We were guided here by our taxi driver after asking if he knew somewhere that had beachfront accommodation at a budget price, Pakachi surpassed both our expectations. After receiving our welcome juice in the bar we looked out at the stunning views over the beach and ocean whilst our bags were taken to our room. The bed was beautifully made... More

When you come to the Pakachi, you emidiatly feel the African Zanzibar wipe. The place indolges calm or as the lokals call it in Zwahili; ''pole pole''.

Steven, the owner offered great tips on things to see and do in the area. The room was reasonable,clean, and faced the saltwater pool and beautiful beach. It's just No. of Zambioni town so very private, and peaceful. The grounds are raked, and all the staff smiling and doing their best. I could've stayed a week.

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed our time. The restaurant had a nice location and atmosphere, the food was reliable, the layout of the resort was nice (quiet and private). The rooms were ok but the bathrooms was poorly designed (the shower sprayed all over the floor and the water for showering was salt water and not always running).... More

For budget travellers a very good option to stay in a private banda/house 10m in front of the sea (at high tide ;-)). The place has a swimming pool, wifi and can arange good budget activities as snorkling and sailing. By foot it is easy to walk to jambiani or paje. Houses are budget but nice with sleeping nets and... More

we had a wonderful stay at pakachi beach resort. The bungalows are direct on the sand, nearby a nice beach. The owner jürgen and salomon did everything to make our stay unforgettable. The hotel has a restaurant with sometime fresh fish, when you request.
