We stayed in White Sand early September this year after our Safari trip. What a great place to end our trip! Beach front property, luxury décor, caring staff and to top that off - amazing food! We'd also like to mention that among all the places we stayed in Tanzania, White Sand is the only one that truly applying the covid protocol: staff is masked up consistently, covid care package provided etc. Even though we felt very safe the whole time in Tanzania, White Sand covid measure really put us in more ease. White Sand experience set my bar of luxury accommodation to a different level. I highly recommend this place to family and couples who are looking for a relaxing and pampering experience!

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed in a beachfront villa, which is like really your own home right on a perfect beach. Beautiful decorated and gorgeous view. Maité (GM) and her staff are really focused on making your stay an exceptional moment. Margret who took care of us was very efficient, discrete, helpful and cheerful. Food is very good, and the chef is open for specific demands...which becomes a gastronomical experience! We were there for the second time this year, which says it all !

Amazing resort located in the beautiful Paje beach. The rooms are modern, spacious, comfortable and clean. You feel welcomed the minute you walk into this property, thee are great amenities, the food is super tasty and well presented. You can have a super relaxing stay or if you want to mingle with the locals you can take a short beach walk north towards Paje and you’ll find lots of local restaurants and bars. The reception stay Edna, Aida (assistant Manger) and Maitê (manager). helped us tremendously figuring out or required PCR test in order to transit through Kenya, we would be so lost without their help and we are so grateful for them. The only thing that could be improved is the service from food and beverage, we found it to be very slow.

Stayed 8 nights, ocean front villa. Villa and lush gardens are in reality better than the pictures you see on the website. Location: perfect, very quiet and walking distance via the beach to Paje village. Food: fantastic breakfast, restaurant: very nice mix of European gastronomy blended with local flavors. Chef was flexible to adapt to our dietary needs. Cocktail: try the Cinnamarita Frozen!! KiteSurfing: probably one of the best spots to learn Service: is what made it all perfect, they always went above and beyond to respond to our requests and made this an unforgettable stay! Thank you Maité, Joseph, Fides, Christina, Telka,Bakky and the whole team!! We hope to be back :)
