Everything is in place to make this a wonderful lodge, but something went wrong along the way. Who wants to go to a lodge on the east-coast of Zanzibar and NOT see the Ocean ? From most rooms in Samaki you get to see the garden behind the main building. How this place is constructed is actually a very good... More

Dear Sven, sorry if something was wrong during your stay but it was not our fault. All your dissatisfactions arise from the fact that wine was too expensive and I'm sorry to tell you this but the alcohol in Zanzibar costs so much, in all hotels you will find the same prizes. From here you started a big complain regarding... More

I read the recent reviews and have to agree with most of them as this is a well run and well structured boutique hotel. The beach is well maintained and the sister resort next door offers all the amenities required. it is perfect for a romantic get away.

We enjoyed our stay in Samaki Lodge during New Years Eve and Day. It was very pleasant holiday. We were satisfied with hotel service, the staff fulfilled all our wishes. We appreciated cleanness of the resort, the vicinity of the ocean with beautiful beach and warm weather.

With our family of 5 we stayed for 2 nights in Samaki in December. The rooms are basic and small, with a tiny balcony, considering the very high rates that are charged. The fact that the use of a bath towel required a deposit and internet in the room was charged per hour was off putting (and maybe even insulting)... More
