Details of Samaki Lodge

The furnishing, though elegant, maintains the style and charm of yesteryear Zanzibar. The structure offers a swimming pool area surrounded by a garden. Here, you can unwind–immersed in a display of exotic, colorful flowers. Enjoy refreshments from the poolside bar and restaurant. The hotel is just footsteps away from a private white sand beach, ideal for getting the perfect tan, or just relaxing in the warm African sunlight stretched out on handcrafted beach chairs under Zanzibari beach umbrellas. The main restaurant offers either a buffet or à la carte service, with choices of both traditional Swahili and Italian dishes. At every meal, a wide selection of meat, catch-of-the-day fish and vegetarian options. A sampling of delectable homestyle desserts and exotic, fresh local fruit is always available. Special romantic dinners can be arranged at poolside. Located just above the main restaurant is the lounge zone. In this cozy area, invite yourself to gaze out over the Indian Ocean and the coral reef. The rooms are fitted with a selection of traditional furniture, including sumptuous Swahili beds, draped with gauzy netting and adorned daily with fresh cut exotic flowers. Every room also contains the necessary comforts of an en suite bathroom, ceiling fan, air-conditioning, blow dryer and safe. Six deluxe rooms also include a television and refrigerator. The hotel also contains facilities such as a Boutique, and a Spa and offers wi-fi internet. 


During your stay, you can take long walks on one of the world’s most magical beaches and meet and socialize with the friendly residents of Uroa village. Shielded by the coral reef, the stretch of ocean off the coast of Uroa is calm and offers safe swimming. The mesmerizing daily cycle of the tides creates an ever-changing beach landscape. At low tide, you can wade out for a refreshing dip. Wait for high tide to immerse yourself in the soothing waters and get away from it all. 


Another pleasant way to experience the Zanzibari sea is to allow yourself to be led out into the deep blue by the ingalawa–the local fisherman. Climb onboard their boats and take an out-of-this-world tour of hidden sandbanks, swim in crystal water, snorkel along the coral reef. The Samaki Lodge has special arrangements with an extreme sports center for scuba diving aficionados and kite surfers. Zanzibar also offers guests who enjoy boat trips and snorkeling the convenience of renting boats for cruising in the open waters or deep-sea fishing.
