We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for five nights at Sazani. We were a 10 person family group covering a span from 5 to 70 years of age and everybody felt at home and at ease in the beautiful and quiet surroundings. The location is absolutely unique with a perfect beach that the kids enjoyed. At high tide the waves were... More

Sazani is a great place. The beach is a huge highlight - great for swimming as the difference between high and low tide isn't too big. It's also pretty quiet - not too many people coming along to bother you - which is definitely a plus in an area like Nungwi. The 3-bed room we slept in was lovely, clean... More

I’ve been dreaming of Sazani Beach Lodge ever since I left! In risk of sounding far too cliché, truly heaven on earth does exist and it’s at Sazani Beach Lodge. The beach is glorious and I was often the only person on it. The sand is the softest I’ve ever felt and the turquoise waters are refreshing and beyond beautiful.... More

Today 10th July I visited with one of Friends. We went there using our Bicycles. A very nice and attractive place. The property is not so big and just 10 rooms. But it's well maintained. We could not stay for lunch and we just had a soft drink. Need to visit again for Lunch.

We had a very nice 2 day stay. Two of the 10 houses were booked, so we had a private paradise. Amazing blue sea and quiet (no beachboys/tour organisations annoying you). The cocktails in the Bar are amazing. The breakfast was very good and a lot, but not included in the price. The diner was also good but it was... More

I can here alone, but could have easily come as a couple - what a terrific experience! This is a lodge a writer dreams of - clean and quiet without capitalism shoved in your face so you have time to be your own person and experience peace and beauty the way the beach was intended to be. If you are... More

My wife and I had the privilege of staying at Sazani for a week in at the beginning of April and it was fantastic! We were primarily in Nungwi to scuba dive, but Alif had great suggestions for places to eat, and the food at the lodge was great as well. We will definitely be coming back! Thank you Alif!... More

Me and my wife just left Sazani after staying there for six nights. We had an amazing experience at this wonderwul getaway in the north of Zanzibar. It's easily one of the best places we have stayed at around the world. Much of this is owed to the very attentive and welcoming staff and the serene atmosphere that they created... More

For that price you would expect at least windows. And a clean bathroom would have been nice to. It's far away from Nungwi center and not a easy way to walk. Even tho we pre-paid we left after one night here, to a hotel i Nungwi center instead. With AC, windows and clean bathroom for 20$ less per night... This... More
