    The staff are fabulously warm and friendly, our room was huge, clean and the water was always hot! The food was really great and they provide lots of delicious freebie during the day to keep the nibblies at bay. The beach is pristine! Highly recommended.

    Good morning, The journey from Stone Town to Pongwe takes one hour (both routes take the same amount of time) and costs US$ 50 for the vehicle. Each vehicle can carry a maximum of 5 people plus luggage.
