Six of us Canadians arrived on Jan 26, 2013 for 3 nights to kick off our grand African adventure. It was a perfect little piece of paradise. Well located less than 25 min from Stone Town and close to several spice farms. Zanzibar is a small island easy to discover from the lodge. As stated in other reviews, the lodge offers accomodation in stand-alone cottages, well acquainted and tastefully decorated with a "Zanzibar-arabian" touch. The grounds are beautiful along a secluded bay and adjacent to a quiet beach. But above all, owners Aji and Marina and their dedicated and attentive staff are really what made our stay unforgettable.Their warm and easy going demeanor made you feel so welcome and relaxed. Aji and Marina took really good care of us arranging several great tours we would certainly recommend (Spice farms, swimming with the dolphins/Paje Beach and Forani Forest to see the monkeys, Stone Town walking tour). The meals were prepared special to order and the food was really excellent. All in all, outstanding value for the money, a rare find. Thanks Marina and Aji!!! - Debbie and gang
