Pongwe Beach Hotel Zanzibar (Pongwe), Tanzania

“Sixteen cottages sprawled through gardens in a gorgeous sheltered cove. Traditional lime walls and woven palm thatches on the beach. An affordable introduction to paradise on Zanzibar's east coast. Beach life at its best.”

“On an idyllic stretch of coastline, this self-confessed 3-star hotel is stunning and offers great value for money. Consisting of sixteen cottages for two, all with views of beach and sea, Pongwe Beach Hotel is tucked away in a beautiful little cove, sheltered on both sides by a small coral outcrop. As the hotel also owns the surrounding land, it means that the beach is usually deserted. A real piece of paradise.”
