This is our second visit following a fabulous 2 weeks over Christmas 2015. The natural setting of this excellent site is truly lovely and the staff are extremely welcoming and helpful - we stayed in one of the Bandas that provide exotic accommodation with ensuite toilet and shower. At the front of the Banda there is a lovely private verandah... More

Hello Rehema. Apologies for the mix up on your room. There was some confusion as we had other guests that also arrived late and it appears they got your room and your food. However this was rectified very quickly. The cold shower was as a result of your late arrival. We cannot keep maintenance staff on till 10pm nor burn... More

Totally loved camping at Peponi over the years and loved going out on the boat to snorkel and spend the day on the sand bank. It's not too far from Tanga for a day trip either. The huts were not that great as they had lots of bugs, but the tents, was wonderful. Nice breeze, great view and just lovely... More

It is some years since we visited and we enjoyed being back. Food was good and the rooms well cared for. Would have liked to stay longer. But check your drinks bill as we found some charges not ours later when we checked details

We had a lovely afternoon at the resort. The kids loved having the pool and the ocean just a few metres away. The staff was really helpful and we had a nice light lunch. The views from the resort are beautiful and when the tide comes in the water is tantalisingly close. Loved it!

The friendly, honest and welcoming staff worked as a real team in making our mini-getaway from town a blessing. Never in your face but never a task left undone.

I stayed in the Banda for 4 nights- very basic, clean, peaceful. Great bar on the sand and little spots to relax around the property. I was sad to leave my little beach home!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At Peponi, we feel that the space and its energy will speak for itself, offering a dazzling experience without much need to look beyond what Nature has generously provided. Accommodation options include eight en-suite bandas ranging in size to accommodate individuals, couples, families and larger groups as well as permanent safari tents and camping. Tents can also be hired at Peponi. Also available and accommodating up to three people is the age-old caravan, which has been updated since serving as the first form of housing at Peponi in the 80's! The kitchen serves up delicious and mouth-watering dishes. Seafood caught by local fishermen at Kigombe, meat and vegetarian dishes for all tastes as well as pizzas and snacks at the beach bar. Grab a seat at the beach bar or stay up top; sit, relax and take in the staggering sites! The dhow-in-residence, 'Pepi' which is captained by Mwashonde, visits the Sand Island daily, an exquisite site emerging only during low tide! Jump off the dhow for some snorkeling within the Marine Park just before reaching the island and enjoying a picnic lunch! Kayaks are available for rent from the camp for those keen to explore the surrounding area. It is also possible to organize fishing trips around the famous fishing area within the Pemba Channel. Snorkeling equipment is also available to hire to visit the coral gardens near shore. Local trips may include visits around the local salt farm, Coelacanth Research Centre, Amboni Caves, Tongoni Ruins, the nearby mangroves as well as Tanga and Pangani. It is also possible to arrange a boat trip down Pangani River. Amani Nature Reserve is a great day trip from the camp. Local boats travel daily to Zanzibar for those keen to make the journey by sea! For an independent adventure, it is also possible to rent bicycles or piki-piki's and design your own route around the area! ... more   less
