This boutique hotel in Jambiani provides a refreshing alternative to the bigger hotels in the Island and the most commonly visited and congested beaches, such as Paje and Nungwi. This eleven-room property is the perfect size beach escape from Dar es Salaam and Stone Town or as tranquil endpoint to a safari. The hotel size provides an intimate space for... More

1. After searching online, many hotels, finally we have settled for this hotel, we guess our choice was decently well choice one. 2. This hotel arranges the airport pick (approximately 50kms from the airport) for $40 single way (better than haggling with taxi drivers at the airport). 3. Just before entering this property, car has to drive through the potholed... More

Very relaxing place with direct access to the beach. The pool is there when the tide is low. Excellent restaurant, worth visiting even if you don't stay at the hotel. Nice rooms with air con. Not the luxury, but perfect for comfortable holidays. I would definitely return!

Everything the cooks made was delicious and it was always served with big smiles and lots of enthusiasm. We had a few organised... More

Our stay at the Sea View was awesome. The location is incredible, right on the beach. We could watch the ocean from our bed and fall asleep to the sound of the waves.

Really nice small style getaway. Nice huts on the beach or located around a pool. It is right in the town of Jambiani which is nice, but the small resort is completely isolated, except for the beach view and entrance. Breakfast is included, with a lot of fruit. Also the staff is really friendly and the place is secure. Why... More

This is one great place to stay with newly refurbished bungalow accommodation. The staff are very friendly and happy to help. Had a bungalow at the front of the place facing onto the beach with excellent views and direct access to the water. The bungalows are well set out with all you would need.
