Just a 100 mtr from the beach we found this hidden paradise on a rock. First we stayed at the honeymoon suite and later in a luxury bungalow, both really beautiful local style decorated and with an amazing view at the sea! In the green garden are many places to relax, hang mugs, beach beds etc.
A nice an peaceful place with great food. The breakfast is simple but good (eggs, pancakes or yogurt with fresh juice and coffee (high quality tanzanian) or tea. The lunch and diner are brilliant; fresh fish, lobster, prawn, curries, meat and lovely salads and please try the brownie :-)
All for Zanzibar standards really affordable. It's an expensive island, but here the prices for food and drinks are ok.
The staff really makes you feel welcome, maybe not 100% up to western standards, but they give a really warm and personal feeling. The restaurant and lounge area is also local style and gives you a nice ambiance to completely chill out on your holiday.
Some people complain about the white villa, it is there, but well hidden behind trees. And yes there is a short walk to the beach, but there are 5 beach beds and you can ask the staff for mattresses. Maybe it is a pre that bellevue is not on the beach, the view is better, there shelter for the heavy wind and on the beach this Guesthouse would be more expensive :-)
To summarize; if you look for a small (9 rooms)personal and nice decorated guesthouse, away from the big resorts this could be the place for you. The lovely food completes the package!!
If you like kitesurfing, the owners also own the first kite school on Zanzibar. They arrange free every day transport to the kitecenter in Paje and the downwinders from Paje to Bellevue are Briljant!!!
