Overview

Welcome to Paradise

Situated on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, the Pongwe Beach Hotel is a true paradise retreat, set within a secluded bay on the east coast of Zanzibar; an island in the Indian Ocean just off the coast of Tanzania, Africa. We are a modestly sized hotel, with sixteen traditional beach-side cottages, and an intimate atmosphere.

Pongwe Beach Hotel offers the perfect paradise island experience. The bay's clear blue waters — protected by the reef one kilometre from the shore — are ideal for swimming and snorkeling. If the midday sun becomes too strong you can retreat into the shade of the palm trees that line the white sandy beach, and sip a long, cool drink.

Traditional Zanzibar Accommodation

The resort’s beautiful gardens surround sixteen beach front Zanzibarian cottages. You will find various local hand crafted Zanzibarian doors and traditional beds. All cottages have en suite bathrooms, with Moroccan style walk in showers. Each cottage also has its own private terrace where guests may enjoy the sunrise and a leisurely breakfast.

The sea view cottages have traditional lime wash walls, and thatched roofs made from woven palm leaves. The size of our resort allows us to maintain a high standard of service, and even during peak-season the atmosphere at the Pongwe Beach Hotel remains relaxed, intimate and exclusive.

We also have 24 hour around the clock reception, so no matter what time of the day (or night) we will be able to happily attend to you.
