Have you ever been in love with a hotel?  That what happened to us after visiting Unguja Lodge in the North East of Zanzibar.

Unguja Lodge was a big surprise for us. If you compare it to all classic hotels with usual all inclusive packages, Unguja will look very different. The lodge’s villas are located right in front of the ocean, with some of rooms having strategically missing sections of wall or roof to bring you closer to nature.


The resort’s grounds are home to a lot of monkeys, so you’ll need to be sure to keep your room locked to fend off these cute thieves. Don’t be surprised to come back to your lodge and find that you’ve got a furry guest!

Unguja’s stretch of beach is perfect for swimming with dolphins. You can ask the hotel to take you there by boat and enjoy meeting these fantastic creatures. If you want to go deeper and explore the marine wonders of Zanzibar, Unguja also has its own diving center. So you can even get your PADI certification there.

Of course, this place is not for people looking for parties, but it will be perfect if you prefer to enjoy the serenity of nature in full.
