Myself and 2 friends recently stayed in one of the triple bungalows at La Papaye Verte and had the most brilliant time! We were blown away by the accommodation - beautifully decorated beach bungalows situated amongst a stunning beach garden, and set back just metres from the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Each morning we were provided with fresh... More

This was our second fantastic trip to Zanzibar, and again we were convinced that the spots next to Jambiani and Paje beach offer the most beautiful setting on the island. We were happy in finding this little paradise on Earth called La Papaye Verte. Annick is such a great charming host, who is putting a lot of effort into gardening,... More

After spending two weeks on safari and in Stone Town, we wanted to end our holiday with a few days relaxing by the beach away from the hustle and bustle. La Papaye Verte was perfect. Three simple bungalows, elegantly decorated amid a beautiful garden (a mass of pink bougainvillea). There are plenty of terraces, deck chairs and hammocks which overlook... More

We did not intend to stay at La Papaya Verte, but by coincidence we did and we are very glad we did. My daughter didn't want to leave the spot. The confortable bright huts with little terrace had a nice view of the so beloved garden of the owners, and indeed they did a spendid job. The garden is a... More

Pierre and Annick are the people that make all the difference here.They have a class and style of its own which makes their guesthouse unlike any other on Zanzibar. It's their very warm personality and their undisputable French touch that makes this place outstanding. Location is best - close to the great restaurant " Piece of mind " and seafront... More

Not only is the setting stunning with the most beautiful turquoise water we have ever seen but the accommodation was absolutely perfect and an incredible value. We stayed in the middle unit which is featured in many of the pictures and could... More
