Chapwani Private Island - Overview

Chapwani is an incedibly peaceful lodge comprised of one villa and just ten sea view rooms set in five individual sea front bandas on a small private island just west of Stone Town. There is a strong focus on ecology and sustainability at the lodge. The swimmming pool is filled with salt water so as to not disturb the ecosystem and all vegetables are grown organically in the hotel gardens. Fresh seafood is sourced locally from the sea and eggs from the chickens reared at the lodge. Massages are available on the beach at sunrise and sunset when there is the most electromagnetic energy from the sun. Snorkelling equipment and kayaks are available for exploring the crystal clear water that surround the island.

The island is home to some amazing wildlife including eagles, white herons, dik diks (tiny antelope) and a very rare protected species of giant crab. There are areas of rich vegetation, a wide variety of fauna and flora and a beautiful inland lake.



Chapwani Private Island - 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 team below:


"A stay on Chapwani Island is a great experience. It is very peaceful, very relaxing and truly authentic. It's perfect for nature lovers and those seeking a quiet retreat just to rest. Stone Town is not far away and there is a free boat every day for when you fancy a bit of excitement too. No air-con means it's not for everyone. If you have a small group and it's a special occasion I would definitely recommend hiring the whole lodge your group - amazing!"
