A Barefoot paradise!

As you step into Indigo Beach Zanzibar, you will immediately feel that your holidays have started.. Barefoot....This is how you will spend your holidays. Forget everything, free your mind and spirit! Relax in our cozy "boutique Hotel"!

From the deck of the pool you'll find a direct view on the lagoon, that spreads its color less than 30m away.

So I wasn't able to actually stay here as my flight changed and inhad to leave . I asked the hotel for a refund or even a partial refund for my 3 night stay and Margot was very quick to message and simply say "not refundable" I said okay ill change my flights but that proved expensive so all in all very disappointed as Indigo will not only very easily take my money but book it out to someone else and get double. Daylight robbery. I understand hotels need to protect themselves but also during this uncertain time and with the new strain the flight rules keep on changing and this should be kept in mind if you want return business. I lost $290...I didnt mind paying 1 night or even 1.5 for penalty. No movement for change.

I spent 4 days at Indigo Beach with my mom and sister in November 2021. We had a beach front bungalow, which was just amazing. I cannot fault any part of our stay. We were treated like royalty, any request was met and we were made feel so comfortable. As 3 female travelers, we felt so safe, and what I loved most was the Masai boys who work as hotel security, were so respectful and very welcoming. The food in the restaurant was fantastic. Menu changed everyday, so we were spoilt for choice. The staff were so professional and accommodating. I want to especially mention Joyce and Upendo, two beautiful waitresses who served us so well. Musa the boy from reception, was such a gentleman, and so professional. We also used the hotel taxi and tour guide Maou, who was so much fun and so helpful. He took care of us wherever we needed to go. I would highly recommend Indigo Beach for your stay in Zanzibar. Located in the village of Bwejuu, you get the added bonus of seeing all the local children playing in the ocean everyday. I will return for sure, thank you Indigo, you have taken a special place in my heart xxxxx

We stayed for 4 days january 2020 in a beautiful beachfront bungalow. From the moment you step down from the taxi and take off your shoes it's just paradise! The sunrise, the blindingly white sand and turquoise waters welcoming us every morning. The smiling and friendly staff, always willing and happy to help. The manager, taking care of every possible need with such love for the place, it's people and the clients. The delicious swahili cuisine. The quiet... A true paradise on barefoot!!! Somewhere to go at least once in your life.

Our travel into Tanzania was horrid, warn and caution for anyone flying in with Air Tanzania(I would not recommend them at all). I am sure this applies to African residents only. Nonetheless, our transfer from the airport was about 1.5 hr to Indigo........We arrived really late,10 pm and the manager on site waited for us, this was a pleasant surprise, tired as we were at least we managed to get some dinner prepared and waiting for us in our bungalow. We booked two, one bedroomed o ocean view bungalows for four nights(7 & 8), lovely space , just as pictures show. The rooms were spot on clean, enough towels, the amenities were just FAB.....I loved the Coconut and Lime scents, the showers were lovely too, although not enough hot water (as we were coming from a country that was colder), and expected the hot water to be enough for two showers...I suppose it goes with the Island temperature. The bed was comfortable, though I feel our mattress should have had a protector. You wake up to the sound of the sea, palm trees and the view to the ocean which is welcoming, I swam in the morning most of the time, the feel of the soft sand on your feet from the moment you step out and into the ocean, my only concern was the litter washed onto the beach,(swim suits)would have been nice if the staff would just pick up and toss that, especially that its in front of the establishment. Breakfast was divine, the fresh juice and variety of fruit was what I always looked out for,You get a buffet of cooked breakfast, variety of breakfast and can order your eggs and bacon(when available). I loved that you have no AC, and depend on the natural air(but fans are available for those that can't stand the lovely warm humid temperature) The staff were lovely, all through out, the Masai security,(makes you feel you are being taken care by warriors), the Fnb waiters always on point, they paid attention to what we requested , Managers on site were friendly....I would like to thank all the staff for making our stay enjoyable, so patient and polite. Furthermore to Margot and Maelle for being patient with us. We are so coming back !

Public spaces and the rooms look nice, however there are no ACs anywhere in the hotel: not in the public spaces (as they are all open air), but also not in the rooms. As the temperatures in Zanzibar can be very high, even during night, than it is not advisable to stay in this hotel if you are travelling with small children. However, if you are travelling without children, then the place is ok: the staff is warm and the houses look nice. Families with children, please note: there is absolutely nowhere to escape from the high temperature and the sleeping temperatures during night can be dangerously high for infants. After two nights of staying awake, opening all doors to create any air in the room and as a consequence getting multiple mosquito bites, we decided to leave. However, I admit that I should have double checked before booking to be sure that they have any AC. I just expected that a nice place like Indigo would have AC if it operates in such a hot climate. However, the hotel looks nice, the houses are nicely decorated, big and spacious, pool is good enough, beach is right at your doorstep. The staff is friendly, welcoming and cooperative - they made us feel welcome and tried to find solutions for us. Three other minuses (besides AC) from our experience: 1. It was impossible to enjoy the beach freely as we were constantly bombarded by beach boys. Some even start calling for you as soon as you open your room door. In the end I didn't go swimming in the ocean, cause I couldn't get 1 minute to myself without being approached and being offered tour, souvenirs etc. 2. Breakfast had rather limited options to choose from. Fruits were always running out. 3. It is in the middle of nowhere, so if you want to eat you have only two options: in the hotel or book a driver to go to the nearest town. There is nothing in the walking distance.

Response from Maelle Collot, Comptabilité/Finance at Indigo Beach Zanzibar
Responded Mar 17, 2021
Dear Kart Kallaste, Warmest greeting from Indigo. Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our hotel. We are really sorry not to have meet your expectations by not having A/C in the rooms, but we did our best to find a solution which could fit you. We would always provide extra fans if required. We are glad that you enjoyed our little barefoot. Concerning breakfast, we offer plenty of things as a base, every day, such as cereals, fresh fruits, yogurt, several bread varieties, and some hot dishes and pastries that change daily. It is also possible to order eggs, bacon and sausages from the Chef. And of course, if you may have any special request, we are always pleased to assist. As we are located in the village of Bwejuu, you do need a taxi to go to Paje (5min) or Jambiani (10 min), where there are a lot of shops, restaurant and activities. Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience and we thank you for all your feedbacks as we are truly committed to giving our customers the best possible service, we are sure it will help us to improve the experience at Indigo. Best regards, Manel Frikech
