Want a Beach front Hotel with Kiting this has to be the spot. Stayed further along the coast two years ago, and visited the Waterfront, found ourselves returning on a daily basis, liked it so much this year decided to return and stay. Our stay was for two weeks, loved every minute of it. The owners Arjen (hope I spelt it correctly) and Ellen are proactive, both they and the team are always happy to assist, communication is excellent. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, well presented, cleaned every day, bedding is changed regularly, about every third day, towels and beach towels every day. Air-conditioning works well, and the WiFi has excellent connectivity. Lovely pool to hang out around, If the wind is up its a great spot for beginner to experience kiter. The Kite centre staff are a great compliment to the hotel facilities always willing to help. When the wind is down or you fancy a change get your SUP or Kayak from reception. Breakfast is great, and the food throughout the day and night is also, plenty of places locally to go eat and drink or just hang out. I will always highly recommend the Waterfront, look no further for a trip to Paje, very well managed amazing people. I'm looking forward to returning. Will definitely return, thank you Arjen & Ellen. xx

If you are researching hotels in Paje, look no further. This place was perfect. The rooms are basic but very comfy. The owners couldn’t be any kinder or informative. They were always available to answer questions. During the COVID crisis they allowed us to depart 6 days early and refunded our non-refundable reservation. There is an incredible restaurant on site that serves a delicious breakfast that’s included in your stay. Very nice pool. All staff were positive and welcoming. We hate that our time there was cut short and will return as soon as possible! Tip: if you book directly through their website you get free airport transfers (one, if not both ways), free use of paddle boards, kayaks and kite lockers. Awesome place!

I enjoyed a great 4 night stay at Waterfront. This lovely hotel and its adjoining beach bar restaurant are very clean and well managed. The pool is a delight and so is the location. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and the hotel is eco conscious and relaxed. Highly recommended.

We absolutely loved staying at the Waterfront. It was everything we wanted and needed. The pool is perfect, a welcome relief from the Zanzibar heat. The breakfast is simple but delicious. The rooms are lovely. And everywhere felt like a spot that you could instagram 😂 it was also perfectly central to find food and drinks, parties, chill out spots - anything you want. We really liked the affordable little seafood fisherman's restaurant just next door to the left. We can't wait to visit again!
