I am a resident in Zanzibar, living in Stone Town. When I have time for a break I often go to Club Vacanze to relax and enjoy the Italian hospitality provided by this luxury hotel. They have an amazing jetty and a super chef. I strongly reccommend this hotel for visitors of the island and its residents.

My husband and I stayed here for the first 3 days of a month long trip. We arrived exhausted, jet lagged and missing one bag. The manager, Samson and his friendly helpful staff were wonderful in getting things sorted and were able to locate and get the bag here within 24 hours without any follow up by us. Our room... More

Steve and I stayed at the Dongwe Ocean View for 3 nights at the end of August 2014. From the minute we arrived the setting, staff and local area have charmed and impressed us. There are only 18 guest rooms that are set in 2 different buildings, complete with a separate reception, social and bar/dining area. Around all the buildings... More

Although I have seen many beaches in my life, I have to say the one in front of Dongwe is one of the most beautiful ! The fact that we had it almost for ourselves makes it even better. The hotel itself is very nice and well priced. The room we got was large, pleasant, and with a direct sea... More

My wife and I just had a terrific vacation at the Dongwe Club. The most remarkable thing about this resort was the service. Truly, neither of us has ever been so well cared for, and we have both traveled extensively. The staff, led by Sulaiman and assisted by Hamad, Becca, and a number of the waitresses, was constantly checking with... More

A great discovery during our last trip to Dongwe Club Vacanze in October 2011. Not far from Paje beach and easy access. The Dongwe Club Jetty which stretches 300 mt into the Ocean was a fantastic location for a pre-dinner cocktail. We had a special dinner as well. Seafood, of course, is a prominent feature at the resort’s restaurant. A... More
