A magical cove hidden on idyllic Zanzibar

A magical cove lapped by turquoise waters with swaying palms dotting the white sand beach epitomises Pongwe Beach Hotel. Found on Zanzibar’s north-eastern coastline, this is a true island getaway, free of the hustle and bustle of Stone Town (whilst not being too far away), and promising fuss-free and affordable hospitality. 

Zanzibar’s coastal waters are renowned for their prolific diving and snorkelling opportunities, while further inland guests can enjoy hiking and nature in the likes of Jozani Forest. The capital city, Stone Town, has streets teeming with culture and history, while surrounding spice plantations are well worth a visit. 

Guests can book all of the above-mentioned activities through the friendly reception at Pongwe Beach Hotel. Accommodation consists of Garden View Rooms and Beachfront Rooms (each with en suite bathrooms and terraces), while their Sea View Rooms have the added benefit of private plunge pools. When you're not strolling on the beach and kayaking in the ocean, enjoy fresh seafood and fish on offer daily.
