We stayed 5 days at Green and Blue and were very impressed. The hotel is perfect for those looking for a peacful holiday away from tourist crowds. The highlight for us was the food and service of the lovely local staff and we felt so relaxed after our stay.
The hotel is in a fishing village and although going in the sea was not possible because of the amount of seaweed on the beach at the time we went (Nov) and because of the tides, it was wonderful to observe the fishermen community at work. If you are looking for the ideal sandy beach then you might want to consider the more touristy Nungwi in the North. But if you want peace and quiet this is the place. The hotel were very good at arranging day trips for us to Nungwi and snorkling trips nearby.
Overall we highly recommend Green and Blue Lodge, especially for those wishing to experience local culture and life as well as find peace of mind and privacy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Ocean Lodge GREEN AND BLUE in the northeast of the spice island ofZanzibar is placed so that your gaze wanders over the turquoise waterof the vast bay and rests on the small island of Mnemba. Characterisedby its lush, tropical garden, the Ocean Lodge nestles right on theIndian Ocean, separated from it by a powder-fine, sandy white beach.The lodge forms part of a typical local fishing village. This may appear very simple and basic to our “civilised” eye. Tourists can expect scenes they won’t see anywhere else. ... more less
