If you're looking for a quiet place (away from the strip mall that Jambiani and Paje have become) on a beautiful beach, this is the place. Located on the Jambiani/Paje border, it's ideal as it's far away from the wall to wall resorts that line the shores of Paje and Jambiani proper. Should you wish to indulge in what the... More

Spent a wonderful and relaxing week at this extraordinary hotel. Simple, clean and comfortable accommodation. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. And a magnificent location. Oh and the food is wonderful too! I would go back tomorrow if it wasn't so far from my home! Thank you Steve and all for the terrific vacation!

From December 2015 until January 2016, my wife and I spent a terrific holiday with our little kids (3 and 1) in Pakachi. It felt like being in paradise: Our traditional 2-story banda located directly at the white sandy beach, excellent local cuisine and – most of all – the warm-hearted team made our stay a dream holiday. Since I... More

I made the decision to stay at Pakachi after researching several other options, and I could not be more pleased with my experience! The staff, and especially the owner, Steve, were wonderful. The surrounding area of Jambiani was a peaceful blessing after spending time in Dar, and travelers looking for a tropical paradise should look no further than Pakachi. The... More

This is a charming, small, intimate and exceptionally well run eco resort right on the Indian Ocean with an immaculate white sand beach. The resort is well organized with raked paths, flowering and fragrant trees shading the private bungalows with verandahs, screened windows and mosquito nets - note there are no mosquitos on the east side of the island. The... More

Relaxed, beautiful beach, cool accommodation and great people. We stayed for 5 days and the welcome of the staff (the owner Steve was great) the quality of the food was just perfect. Ask for Juma if you want to go fishing, sailing or snorkelling. The local market for trips and tours can be a bit hit and miss but Juma... More

Pakachi is a lovely place! It is authentic, quiet, the views are amazing and Steve and his team are warm and friendly; they do everything to make you feel at home. I stayed in the 1-bedroom Banda at the beach and, for unwinding from a Medical mission in Kenya, couldn't have wished better. It is totally different from the bigger... More

What a lovely, lovey place! We arrived late in the evening (11:45 pm) due to airline delays, but were met by friendly efficient staff and shown to our comfortable beachfront bandas. Having just completed a 12 day safari on the mainland, this was the perfect place to relax and recover. After dropping our bags, we all jumped into the swimming... More
