Having travelled around the island this was by far the best place we stayed. The location is perfect and service excellent. The interesting and personable owner went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable making sure we had fresh seafood from the local fishermen every day. When I return to Zanzibar this would be the first and only... More

I have just returned home from an amazing holiday in Zanzibar and had a wonderful stay at Sea View Lodge. The resort is situated in the quaint village of Jambiani, which is away from the crowds and considering it is now off-season we practically had the beach to ourselves! The resort is small (only 8 bungalows), which provided a very... More

The place is nice,position close to the see is ok but be aware of deceitful owner. We have been invited there to eat a dinner in a hotel restaurant. They suggested us what to eat. The food was ok but nothing special.What was really special was the price. The problem is that they don't show you prices list or menu... More

My wife and I stayed here one night last week and we were looked after very well. They have eight rooms which are actually bungalows; three of these have a good sea view but are smaller than the other family bungalows set further back from the beach. The rooms are clean. Toiletries are not provided. The staff are very warm,... More

Spent a very relaxing few days at the SeaView. Loved it. Farouk is the English/Italian/Indian/Tanzanian owner who chats to everyone seemingly no matter what the language. All the staff couldn't be friendlier. The place is small so you really do feel like a welcome guest. And of course you're right on the fabulous India Ocean beach. The rooms are simple... More

We stayed for two nights in January. Our room was the "Ocean view" which is precisely what it is. You have a little front porch, with chairs, and loungers just ahead of that. It's really lovely. Great shower, small but really well designed room. It was very quiet, so quiet that when our next door neighbor apologized for her baby... More

Mixed feeling about this place. Jambiani is a lovely spot, long beach where locals and tourists form a nice blend, no big resorts. Sea vie lodge has been taken over by new (Italian) owners not too long ago, they have created a beautiful pool area and a nice looking reception with a small shop. The location is great right on...
