“Incredible Place”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

My wife and I had a 6 night stay at Pongwe Bay Villa - it was an amazing experience in terms of the location and beach setting, service from Paolo and his staff and the wonderful food that Paolo's chef Habibu prepares for all the meals, both Italian and local Zanzibari cuisine. Paolo was also very helpful in arranging day trips for us and everything was done at very reasonable prices. I would highly recommend Pongwe Bay Villa and hope to return for a stay there again.

“Lovely meal”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

We went to Pongwe just for lunch. The policy of the hotel is to charge 25 USD for a visitor but the same amount can be used in their restaurang.
The food was excellent and the restaurant is simply beautiful.
