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...

My wife and me were staying in the Sea View Lodge in the beginning of December 2014 for one week and we both absolutely loved it. Beautifully set on the amazing beach of Jambiani it offers 8 small houses, we had beach front with great sea view and a superb pool. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. The... More

We stayed for a weekend at the Sea View and loved it. The public areas were clean and pretty, the bungalow (sea view) was nicely furnished and decorated. Comfy bed, great AC (a big draw for me and most of the places around didn't have it no matter how nice they were), safe in room, nets around the bed were... More
