My boyfriend and I have just returned from a 10 day stay at Upepo near Bwejuu and had an amazing time there. It was the perfect holiday. We loved it and are officially in love with Zanzibar, Bwejuu and everyone at Upepo!! The owners, Shareef and Fatma, are lovely genuine people who are there if you need them but also give you the privacy and space to enjoy your holiday. The rest of the staff: Mohamed, Rasta and Chollo, are all incredibly friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble - they made our holiday! :-)
The accommodation is great - simple, clean bungalows in a stunning setting right on the beach. The food was tamu tamu (Rasta is a god in the kitchen!) and the beach was beautiful with loads to do, or you could just sit back and relax.
For us it was the perfect place to stay: quiet, laid back, away from the tourist resorts, beautiful beach, great people and amazing food.
We would go back in a heartbeat and can't recommend it enough!
