Jambiani beach is beautiful, specially when seeing from the Raha Lodge perspective! We were 15 people who stayed for 5 nights at this paradise: 4 families with small children sharing this big 6 bedrooms house, lot's of space inside and also outside. The house itself could have more maintenance, specially the food storage/kitchen area. We understand that considering the reality... More

4 middle aged sisters and their partners spent the most wonderful holiday at the Lodge. It is a memory I shall treasure forever, and certainly hope to return. Khadija is an Angel, and her whole team were so lovely, friendly and helpful. They decorated our beds so beautifully - such an extra special touch x

Raha lodge and especialy Cady with her team made us feel as close to paradise as possible. After our Tanzanian safary tour we've come to a perfect spot to relax before going back to reality. The house is perfectly positioned on one of the most beautiful beaches in Zanzibar that strikes you with an amazing colour palete. And although you... More

Khadija and her team were great and very hospitable. Location and access to the beach was literally on the door step. The beach is not crowded which make it ideal for a restful & relaxing break. PS no air-conditioning but bedrooms have ceiling fans which is comfortable. Living areas are open with breathtaking taking views of the ocean. The bathroom... More

We rented the entire Raha Lodge for 3 nights, with a group of 7 friends. When we arrived we were in awe by how beautiful the house is. It's a huge lodge with a perfect pool and looks out on the beautiful bounty beach. Next to the building itself, the service was also great: We could order any type of... More

You couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay. The views of the beach/water are breathtaking, the team at the house knock up a fabulous breakfast, and any other meal you desire, and the pool is beautiful (and one of the only pools in the village). The rooms are fabulous given the cost, but don't expect 5 star luxury (air... More
