Our stay here was amazing!! The lodge is on the east side of the island, a little bit away from everything, but a beautifull piece of paradise!!When we drove there with the taxi, the last half hour was a very bumpy road, but this makes the place even more special!
The lodge is so peacefull, the rooms are gorgeous and clean with beautifull views!
ALL the staff is so helpfull and friendly!!
You can arrange with the lodge to go snorkeling or diving which was really amazing! Also there the staff was so helpfull and friendly!
The atmosfere in the restaurant & bar was very cosy en peacefull! This lodge is the perfect place to relax!! I would definitely advise this lodge to other people!
Note: if you intend to do a lot of activities on Zanzibar or even if you want to go to another place to eat in the evening, you need to consider the fact that you always need to rely on a taxi driver to bring you from en back to the hotel, which costs you some money.
