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.

    dongweoceanview tripadvisor stars 5  I found Dongwe Ocean View mostly by chance, but was so glad I that did. I came to eat at The Rock (also highly recommended), so I made a reservation at the affiliated hotel for one night. When I checked in, the friendly desk clerk told me I'd end up staying longer. She was right.

    The secluded location right on the beach is unbeatable, it was safe and comfortable, and Samson and his team exceeded the highest standards of hospitality. I highly recommend staying here. More
