Zanzibar Hotels

The island of Unguja (Zanzibar) plays host to hundreds of resorts, lodges, B&B’s, guest houses & boutique hotels. Over the last decade we have visited the vast majority of these properties to bring you a concise and current collection of the best the Island has to offer.

There are large all-singing, all-dancing resorts, intimate lodges, inspirational & artistic boutiques, traditional Zanzibari Villas, Arabian inspired architecture & indeed restored Arabian palaces nestled deep in the heart of Stone Town.

In having such a comprehensive overview of the islands accommodation, we can objectively compare and contrast properties against one another in terms of their price band, comparable value, location, ability to deliver what they promise and their connection with the island’s community.

It is important to us that the spirit of sustainable, ecological & social tourism plays in integral role in the development of new and exciting properties, just as the well-established and most loved jewels of the island already do.

Please enjoy our collection and do not hesitate to call us for assistance in planning and booking your Zanzibari holiday. No international operator knows and loves the island as we do.

Echo Beach

More Than A Beautiful View!!
A very stylish new hotel in a great location for relaxing on the beach and soaking up the peaceful and calming atmosphere.

A small upmarket hotel that offers wonderful beachfront location in a peaceful and less crowded setting. The English owners, Sue and Andrew, offer excellent personal service, and the food and facilities are of a very good standard.

Echo Beach Hotel - 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.

Echo Beach is a lovely small boutique hotel. The beach is very long , wide and quiet making for a very relaxing stay. Dive facilities are close by at Breezes Beach Club and dive masters will come to the lodge to talk you through the options. There is a lovely little spa. Sue and Andrew are great hosts and provide a very warm and welcome stay. Generally we think this place is great for those wanting to just relax and get away from it all. It is particularly good for honeymooners and those in search of a romantic break.
