Bellevue Guesthouse

A sustainable guesthouse for the independent traveller.

Bellevue Guesthouse is a delightful guesthouse that offers great value for money, good service and a homely atmosphere. With just nine rooms, Bellevue offers an intimacy and personal level of service you just can't get at the larger resorts.

 

Bellevue is located on the South East coast of Zanzibar, 2km north of Bwejuu village. The guesthouse is nestled 50m back from the beach, elevated on a small coral cliff providing stunning views of the ocean. From the main building there are just a few small steps down to the beach where Bellevue’s umbrellas and beach beds await you.

The guesthouse is 5km away from Paje where the hotel's own Kite surf school, Kite Centre Zanzibar is located.

Bellevue has a lush green garden, where you can always chill-out and read. Bellevue also provides you with hammocks on your own private terrace - perfect for those quiet and peaceful moments.

Bellevue Guesthouse - Opinions and Reviews

Unlike many operators we not only visit all the hotels we offer regularly but we also stay in them. Please find a few hints, tips and opinions from our staff plus some genuine feedback from our clients below.

This is a delightful guesthouse in a very peaceful part of the island. Perfect for a getaway retreat. The food is good; a little expensive for the, size but very tasty. Being set back from the beach does afford you a little more privacy but it does limit sea views to only a few rooms. The lodge is well managed and the staff are charming. Not suitable for those looking for nightlife particularly but perfect for a relaxing break away from it all.
