Pongwe Beach Hotel, Zanzibar

If you believe holidays should be devoted to pleasure - and who could argue with that? - then the simple pleasure to be enjoyed at Pongwe will prove entirely your satisfaction.

The white beach, shaded by palms that curve out to embrace the sea. The topaz white waters of a bay protected by a coral reef. A magical undersea world. Staff who understand the leisure does indeed equal pleasure. A chef who prepares the most exquisite fresh seafood dishes. The freedom to roam by traditional dhow, private car or scooter.

Complete holiday satisfaction.
