Travelers' Choice
Sunshine Boutique Hotel is located in the heart of Matemwe on the north-east coast of Zanzibar. It is a stylish ocean-front boutique hotel with 16 spacious rooms decorated in a chic-Swahili and eco-friendly style. Set right on the unspoiled white sandy beach, lined with palm trees and washed by warm, turquoise waters of Indian Ocean. Sunshine Boutique Hotel is a fantastic place for those looking for relaxing holidays on the beach. Sunshine Boutique Hotel is set right on the beautiful stretch of beach so you can go for long walks, ride a bike or just sunbathe. The boutique hotel has two swimming pools and many beach beds with umbrellas, offering plenty of space for our guests. You can also relax on the balconies or verandas of the rooms, cool down with a refreshing drink in the swimming pool facing the Ocean or chill out on nicely cold and comfortable traditional benches in the lounge area of our restaurant.

Hotel gardens and swimming pool were beautiful. Room with private pool and sea view was wonderful. Food excellent and staff very friendly, we felt like at home. Of course, nothing’s perfect: they could give some training to the spa staff and one bikini was stolen (our fault, we left it outside, at our private swimming pool, and forgot this is Zanzibar). Sleeping with those sea views was completely AMAZING.

We have stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, it has amazing large rooms with pool and sea view. Rooms are clean, breakfast is delicious and garden is beautiful. The best about the hotel is the kind staff, particularly our waiter Kaka who had made our stay even more comfortable. Highly recommended!

This is a lovely little property in the heart of Matemwe. The beach is beautiful and walkable. The pool, grounds, and gardens are lovely. The service staff by the restaurant and pool was great. The local food was very tasty (the veggie samosas and mango salads were excellent!). We stayed in room 2. There were some spider webs and dust in the room, but the fresh flower decorations were beautiful. There was a torrential downpour in the middle of the night and water came through the roof in several spots, including directly onto the bed as we were sleeping, and onto our open suitcases which made our clothes and bags wet our day of departure. The management was very apologetic and allowed us to do a late check out so we could let our things dry in the room all morning. They even adjusted our food/drinks bill as an apology. They really made things right. All in all we were very happy with our short stay and would recommend this place to people traveling to Matemwe. Great and attentive management and staff. Many thanks for a nice stay!
