Panoramic views, Sea & Beach Fun
Relax 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 of the magnificent 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 private and suitably arranged for couples, families and groups of friends.

Locally inspired, international restaurant and snack bar menus and a mere 5 minutes from our world famous The Rock of Zanzibar restaurant.

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

Memories as nourishment.
