Unguja Lodge is a small lodge with an intimate atmosphere in Kizimkazi, the Southern tip of Zanzibar.
Adventurous people who also want comfort feel at home in our lodge; people who are active but want the luxury of a well organized trip, very high quality accommodation and an excellent meal at the end of the day. Many people who come for instance from a safari, don't want to be in a thirteen-in-a-dozen-hotel. They want to be in a personal environment and experience Zanzibar.
Keywords to Unguja Lodge are: the true Zanzibar experience, personal style, integration in the natural and social environment. We have an excellent relationship with the village Kizimkazi Mkunguni (most of our staff is from the village) and we take care of our natural environment (we kept all vegetation while building).
Because the lodge has a maximum capacity of only 30 guests and Martien, the manager, lives on site, we can guarantee a very personal service.
The flora and fauna of the site are beautiful: there are old mango trees and many baobab trees. The site also offers a home to a lot of animals: we have a family of black tail monkeys who adopted a red colobus monkey…although he is often being teased by the black tail teenagers!
A small nature trail (about 50 m) takes you to a small, permanent beach where guests can watch the local women making rope from coconut husk.
In front of the lodge the beach is tidal. At high tide the water comes in up to the cliff, Then it is very nice swimming. At low tide the water retreats until max. 70 metres from the cliff. A beautiful, clean washed, white beach exposes. Time to put the sun beds and umbrellas on the beach.
In building as well as in operation, we use as many local materials as possible: the villas, bar, restaurant and dive centre are traditionally built with coral rock and have makuti roofs.
Also in the kitchen our chefs use local ingredients: fresh fish, caught by the local fishermen, seafood, herbs and spices from the island.
The property has ten private, very spacious villas, two family houses, restaurant, bar, swimming pool and PADI dive centre: Unguja Divers.
All villas consist of a:
- spacious bedroom with double bed (6x7 ft, 185x215 cm), mosquito net, ceiling fan and private safe
- open plan sitting room (baraza-style)
- open plan spacious shower room,
- separate toilet,
- loft with extra DBL bed,
- private terrace.
