Panoramic views, endless, White sand Beaches
Turquoise waters Superb Comfort and Service

The rugged south-eastern coastline of Zanzibar is recognised as amongst the most beautiful on this idyllic island. Here, on Zanzibar’s finest beach, is Dongwe Ocean View.

A perfect Zanzibari experience.

Panoramic views of the magnificent Indian Ocean right on the beach makes for one of Zanzibar’s best ocean view hotels. A fun, contemporary, boutique resort best known and praised for its value.

We offer the huge beach and warm crystal waters as your playground; the shade of the palms your retreat when it all gets too ‘hot’; private pool with raised deck and sun loungers, fresh cocktail at your side, for time-out.

Featuring very spacious accommodations, private and suitably arranged for couples, families and groups of friends.

We’re known for our locally inspired, internationally influenced restaurant and snack bar menus and are a mere 5 minutes from our world famous The Rock of Zanzibar restaurant.

Beach volleyball, reef walking, paddling, dhow trips, wind & kite surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving on your doorstep.

Well located for Stone Town, Jozani forest, Dolphin swimming, and Spice farm tours.
