Location & beach: Sazani is located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Zanzibar, having walked north to the discover the rest of nungwi, i was delighted to see that i... More

This is a two part review- our experience at the hotel as guests, and the help they gave us in a time of crisis! Firstly, Sazani is located on the East side of Nungwi, which is a little way away from the main town. We loved this, as it meant it was so quiet. It was easy enough to get... More

My sons and I had a triple room at Sazani. The room was big enough for the 3 beds without it feeling cramped. Nice verandah on which morning tea would be served before breakfast. It is on a very lovely stretch of beach - no beach sellers and you feel like you are on a private beach. Very peaceful and... More

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
