On the beach, Panoramic VIEWS
FUN with Zanzibari Comfort & Service

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

Fabulous Experiences : Great Memories

Panoramic views over the Indian Ocean and being right on the beach makes for one of Zanzibar’s favourite destinations. A fun, contemporary, boutique resort best known and praised for its location and value.

Endless, white sand beach and warm, swimmable waters are your playground; shade of the palms your retreat; big private pool on raised deck and sun loungers, fresh cocktail at your side, for time-out.

Very spacious and private; suitably arranged for couples, families and groups of friends.

Locally inspired international menus and island cocktails, served well chilled.

Need activity? Beach volleyball, reef walking, paddling, dhow sailing cruises, wind & kite surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving on your doorstep.

Memories as nourishment.

The Rock

To some, an indulgence; to others, a necessity. Massage and spa therapies have positive effects not only the body physically, but also on our mental and emotional state. There is an art in receiving, of enabling the body and mind to enter that space of taking on energy and well being. You’re here on magical Zanzibar to relax, to rejuvenate, to be pampered. More Details..

Mid-way between Kichanga Lodge and Dongwe Ocean View, a mere 5 min, lies The Rock of Zanzibar. One of the world’s iconic restaurants, attracting travellers from around the globe. Depending on the tide, wade out, walk out, or let us pole you there in a boat. Known for its exceptional food and idyllic location. Know more, and book.
