A Barefoot paradise!

The resort shows simplicity & informality. The turquoise of the lagoon melts into the background of an immaculate white sandy beach, planted with coconut palms close to the small fishing village of Bweju, near Paje Beach.

We stayed in Indigo beach as a last stop of our 14 days trip to Zanzibar. Originally we had some issue with the booking and the room as well, the French management wasn’t that open to communicate with us and were really short on their emails and even sort of rude when reply to us saying in one of their emails just the following : If you are looking for budget room, we do not have enough room to suit your party on the requested date. Margot (BTW we never asked for a budget room, just requested for price for 2 rooms for certain period with dinner) At the end I was quite reserve in booking this place because of the bad communication with the booking team, however we really liked the place and decided not to deal with them directly but to book through Online booking site Agoda. On arrival we had some trouble with the room but that was quickly and efficiently sorted by the Tanzanian manager Kombo ( hope to have the name right) who was ever so kind from day 1 to the rest of the stay and made sure all our requests are fulfilled and have a nice stay. He was always there checking on guests and chatting to them, then he constantly checked the staff to make sure they are actually doing their jobs and was around if any troubles. At the same time a French lady Mary who checked us in was nowhere to be seen- as we arrived 12 oclock ( which she was aware of) and the rooms weren’t ready she promised to find us when we can check in, but she was no where to be seen after so we had to go an beg for our key 4 hrs later and were told room was ready ages ago. In overall that lady was nowhere to be seen the next 4 days so for me she wasn’t a manager but just random person appointed to be there. Th lack of customer service from these French staff while trying to make the booking or on check in made me feel really unwelcome and almost ruined my stay but thanks to Kombo it was all sorted and we really enjoyed it at the end. The hotel itself is a little gem, filled with mostly French guests but this wasn’t a problem for us. The pool was quite nice and you could stay there all day during low tide. The restaurant food and staff were very very good, surprised they knew both English and French which is a plus for a place like Tanzania. They were always smiling and sort of made you feel welcome. We had dinner almost every night there and find the food quite decent for the money paid. Indigo is also close to Paje so with $10 taxi return you could visit this part of the island as well. In overall I would recommend this place.…
Indigo is in the middle of Bweju village so you can see the locals doing their thing. You don't feel so isolated from the real people. Our bungalow was close to the beach and was wonderful waking up with the birds and wave sounds. Bed were big and firm. Staff so friendly and helped us with our many questions and requests. It's not high-end luxury but we didn't want that. And we didn't want to worry about how we looked and being beautiful people. Just normal holiday-goers like us. Located on the open ocean side of the island (south east), Indigo views are gorgeous. The hotel is a cosy boutique, with few rooms/bungalows painted vibrant white, sitting amid the most verdant garden. Seaside bungalows dearer but worth it. The staff were friendly, and the food offered variety with fusion approach; good drinks including decent beer. This is a well managed place. We arrived from Stonetown and then went to terrible Zanzibar airport and Indigo arranged transfers. Thanks for a great time.…
Chosen after careful consideration of location, travellers review and appealing pictures, we were not disappointed. Don't expect a 5* modern and shiny place vibrant of technology, you're not in Tokyo or Hong-kong but in Zanzibar. Located on the most famous side of the island (south east), the view on the lagoon is definitely gorgeous. The hotel is a cosy boutique, with few rooms (Sea side bungalows are more expensive but surely worth the expense), freshly painted in bright white and shiny blue roofs, amid the most beautiful hotel garden along the beach (my point of view). The staff is always smiling, always friendly whatever you may ask for. The cook do his best with variety and fusion style, the beer is fresch, and the french lady boss friendly. They provide various to go around and visit the island. If you look for nightlife, Zanzibar may not be the fit, but if you love nature and Zen boudhism, you will be close to the garden of Eden.…
We only had a really short stay at this place ! Check in was meant to be at 2pm - we got there early as we had an early check out from different hotel and we was able to have our room at 12:15.. on arrival we was given WiFi password and was able to use facilities. We had the option of an upgrade from a standard room. We had beach view room or family room. We opted for family room as closer to reception for check out as we was heading to airport at 3.30am otherwise it would of been beach view room - it was just located further from facilities for such a short stay. Lunch was lovely! I had prawn chicken fried rice and partner had chicken ceaser salad very nice! However for dinner there was black board that had African foods only on it. That was the only options for dinner menu... although we tried it because we had only 1 night we wouldn’t of paid the price any other night for something we didn’t like. I feel their should of been other options. You only got 3 main options 2 starter options and 2 dessert options. & the prices where way to high for something we didn’t have a clue what it was unfortunately. The lady who checked us in and who seemed like the manager or owner was helpful .. she made sure the Masai’s (security) had breakfast ready for us to take at 3.30am and they also came to our room to help with luggage. All staff very nice & easily communicated with. (English) Overall more nights at this place would of been ok for us. …
Excellent service from young manager Shingai, we had a situation with booking.com and our rooms were not booked but Shingai handled the situation professionally and sorted us with a last minute available room in such a busy night. The rooms were spacious and clean, we like the open showers especially on a sunny day. Security was nice, the masaai guard kept an eye on things and did move around every now and then. Still I would advise to beware of the local boys especially one rasta man trying to sale you things you might be disappointed. Otherwise we really enjoyed the restaurant service and the kitchen staff were very friendly, nice warm food, fresh juice just perfect. The ladies working are very hard working and we like to thank them all for a nice stay during the new years season and also Shingai. 😁🏖️…
