It looks like something out of an Anthropologie catalog. We stayed for five nights in two adjoining bungalows (family of four with daughters 12 and 14). It's right on beautiful Jambiani beach. We were there during Ramadan so it may have been quieter than usual but there were times when we were the only ones on the beach. The owners... More

We had an amazing stay at one of the bungalows at La Papaye Verte. Our bungalow was very well built and furnished. Kitchen was super well equipped. Bathroom was clean. The garden is really beautiful and very well done so that you have privacy everywhere. The beach is amazing, really stunning. Jambiani is by far one of the best beaches... More

We have been travelling everywhere on the island and we found Jambiani being by far the most peaceful. Papaye verte is an amazing place where you can relax and stay away from touristic places. You have to see this heaven!

Not much to say besides the fact our 2 week stay at la Papaye Verte in Jambiani has been one of the very best holidays in our life (and we've been lucky enough to travel to many fantastic places). Perfect to get away from it all and enjoy the breath-taking views of the lagoon.

We have just returned from 6 days in Jambiani having stayed at La Papaye Verte. What a gem of a place, your own self catering beach cottage with everything you could possibly want. The cottages are well equipped, comfortable, gorgeous view of the sea, hammocks, seashells, sea sand just off your patio and Haji who brings you a wonderful breakfast... More

Myself and 2 friends recently stayed in one of the triple bungalows at La Papaye Verte and had the most brilliant time! We were blown away by the accommodation - beautifully decorated beach bungalows situated amongst a stunning beach garden, and set back just metres from the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Each morning we were provided with fresh... More
