Pongwe Beach Hotel, Zanzibar

Set amongst private tropical gardens on one of Zanzibar’s most beautiful, unspoilt beaches, fringed with coconut trees and plenty of hammocks – the ideal beach holiday.

The small and intimate Pongwe Beach Hotel is located in one of Zanzibar's most beautiful bays, protected by a coral reef providing excellent snorkelling opportunities. The rooms have been built in a traditional Zanzibari style complete with coconut palm thatched roof (with the leaves sourced from the hotel beach), lime wash walls and hand-crafted wooden doors and hand crafted furniture.

Enjoy exquisite seafood dishes at the hotel chef who sources the finest ingredients from around the island to cater for every individual. The hotel provides the perfect base to explore the island or simply relax and unwind by the pool or on the white sand beach.
