The Perfect Getaway

Our hotel sits among the bent palms in beautiful Dongwe, on the southeastern coastline of exotic Zanzibar. Originally known as Tropical Ocean View Hotel under its previous owners, renamed, revamped and now known as Dongwe Ocean View, . We are situated  one of Zanzibar’s most incredible beaches: reef protected, wide, flat, white, fine sand. Warm lapping waters and ample shade.

This boutique resort features rooms, all with incredible beach and ocean views, within  Mediterranean-influenced architecture, offering a range of fully air-conditioned accommodation and sleeping arrangements: from double-rooms for couples, to family-style rooms, to ocean view honeymoon suites.

We know that the combination of our hotel, the wonderful beach, our location close to all that Zanzibar offers, and our team, will combine to give you a memorable tropical vacation at truly affordable rates.

Dongwe Ocean View not only offers a haven for relaxation on our pristine wooden pool deck overlooking the sand and sea, but a range of lively beach activities such as reef walking, kite surfing, and scuba diving for the more adventurous.

We provide vacation packages and special pricing based on seasonal offerings.

So, leave your shoes in your room, and stay a while. Kick up some sand. ‘Pole-pole.’
