We had a wonderful relaxing week at Pole Pole - Julie and all the staff could not do enough for us - even thinking of things we needed or wanted before we even realised it. The food was exceptional. The range of activities was excellent - we could spend our time relaxing, or enjoying the 'sea activities' as much or as little as we wished. If you want to 'get away from it all' but also be spoilt, then this is the place!
Julie and her team make PolePole the best place that we have ever stayed in, the food and service were exceptional, all the people who work there are so so lovely. Beautifully created bungalows are situated in lush tropical grounds and barely visible from the sea, there are only 7 in total with complete privacy. The attention to detail is amazing and if you want a relaxed tropical paradise then this is the place. We only spent two nights there but it felt like a week, they also discovered that it was my birthday and organised a private dinner in the Duara with a complimentary bottle of fizz! totally unexpected. Brilliant dive center just a short walk away, they come to the hotel every night to discuss the next days excursions. Sundowner drinks in your room at 6pm, just in time…
We stayed at Pole Pole in October 2018, we will be back in February 2020, bc this resort is as close to paradise on earth as can be! The food is outstanding, the bungalows so uniquely beautiful, the employees are friendly, helpful and kind. The entire area is calm and clean, the beach secluded and picture-perfect at high tide. The island is magnificent both on land and underwater. The stay at Pole Pole was extraordinary, relaxing and so mesmerizing. Thank you for having us again, looking forward to being back soon Katharina & Haiko
Wonderfully relaxing trip to Pole Pole, Mafia Island, which provided the perfect mix of luxurious tropical paradise, combined with dive centre, cultural trips to local villages, and boat trips. Excellent food and drink. Bungalows are very well equipped, and we loved sitting on our patio watching the fruit bats fly over in the early evening. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, and the manager, Julie, has great warmth that spreads to the whole team.
My wife and I loved our stay at Pole Pole. The pace of life was perfect and it was very special to share our honeymoon with the local whale sharks. Julie really went the extra mile and looked after us. Fantastic food and lovely staff, with a brilliant dive centre round the corner! We hope to be back soon!
