      Unguja Lodge

      A Stylish Zanzibar Eco Lodge on a Secluded Beach

      For a thousand years, Zanzibar was one of the world’s crossroads of trade, with Persians, Arabs and Europeans attracted to its exotic exports. The northeast section of Zanzibar Island is known as Matemwe, famous for its fine white sand beaches, the contrasting colors of the Indian Ocean and the beauty of the coral reef around Mnemba Island. Matemwe borders a small fishing village where local fishermen set out on a daily basis in traditional dhows. Unguja lodge is peaceful and secluded. It is well away Zanzibar's busy tourist beaches, and the whole concept of the lodge has been developed to ensure it works in harmony with the natural environment and the people who live around it. The building’s organic forms and stylish finish are complemented perfectly by the lush tropical setting and the rough coral boulders that surround it. The astonishing marine life just a short swim or boat ride from the beach will ensure that whether you are a serious diver or just someone who likes to snorkel there's lots to see. If you like exploring on land you will find a thriving local culture. And if you just prefer to relax by the pool, you will be amazed at the birds, plants and animals you see all around. The lodge sits on a small coral cliff. Just a few steps down a wooden stair, your toes sink into clean soft white sand. As the tide rises the beach vanishes, and the lodge becomes an isolated haven. When the tide drops and the beach reappears, washed and swept by the sea. The lodge is once again connected to the outside world and you can watch as local fishermen drag their boats out of the sea, and women and children hunt the shallows for shellfish. There are 12 villas in total, 7 Sea View Villas, 3 Baobab Villas, and 2 Family Houses. The Sea View villas and the Family Houses have a direct sea view, and each has a private terrace overlooking the Menai Bay. The Baobab Villas are built a few yards further from the shore beneath a huge baobab tree. They are oriented to the garden, which make them ideal if you want even more seclusion and privacy. The pool at Unguja Lodge is ideal for a quick dip to cool off when things get a bit hot, and has a shallow area ideal for kids, and for those who would just like to sit up to their neck in cool, refreshing water and relax. Massages are available at an extra cost. Optional activities such as snorkeling/diving, kayaking, sailing, and touring Stone Town, the Jozani Forest, or Prison Island as well as the Spice Tours can be arranged at an additional cost. Please advise if you are interested in additional activities and we will confirm availability and pricing.
