We didn't stay in the Dhow Inn, but we had very nice dinners there. The staff is friendly and helpful, the place looks clean and well organized and the food is great (we loved the Passion Caipirinha)!

We had an amazing week at Dhow Inn. The rooms are very cosy, elegant and clean. The place looks luxury style and every few rooms (I think it was 10 rooms) you have a private swimming pool where the atmosphere is always very quite and relaxed. We booked half board, dinners are very nice and with good variety between fish... More

Have just returned home from a week spent relaxing at the Dhow Inn. Food was excellent and varied and we especially enjoyed the Zanzibar themed evening on Friday. Watching the kite surfers from the private beach was a highlight, along with trips to see the dolphins, Stone town and the Spice tour, all arranged through the hotel and reasonably priced.... More
