The Pongwe is a small intimate resort, very quiet, and removed from the more populated tourist area. The beach is small and surrounded by rock bluffs, so when the tide is in, it is inaccessible to anyone else. The infinity pool is inviting, and overlooks the beautiful white sand beach and crystal blue ocean. The staff are friendly and accomodating, and meet you on arrival to explain meal times etc. The rooms are standard, clean, 4 poster beds with mosquito nets. Each night a different meal is served in the kitchen, typical food for the area, with local spices, absolutely fabulous! The seafood platter is a must, but is definately large enough to be shared. A taxi ride to Stone Town is resonable, the drive takes about an hour, and the front desk can arrange a driver for the day. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing rest, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and other resorts, this is the place.
