My friends and I could not have asked for a better spot to have stayed in Zanzibar! Pakachi, it's owner and staff were superb hosts, who went out of their way to ensure we had the most delicious breakfasts (which were conveniently included in our room cost), that we saw the best the southeast of the Island had to offer,...

We stayed for a week during Christmas 2014 in a 1-story beach banda (bungalow). The banda (#2) was very clean and had the best position in the resort -- the closest to the beach, with a beautiful view. It had a nice terrace with a table and 2 chairs. The banda had a fan and mosquito net. We tried using...

Situated between Paje and Jambiani (walking...

I visited Zanzibar for a week on my own late October this year. Having spent hours trawling through the internet reviews of various resorts Pakachi was the one that really stood out for me. I’m tired of big 5* resorts, I work in the travel industry and have stayed at many, and was really just looking for something small, intimate,...

I only stayed here one night with my boyfriend, but we both wished we had stayed for longer! It was a really lovely place, right on the beach. The staff/owner were extremely friendly and welcoming. The food was amazing, rooms clean and comfortable and it had a perfect location.

It had been an extremely long journey from the Serengeti but all that was forgotten when we got to pakachi beach. We arrived late at night and was welcomed with a fantastic bungalow that was clean, spacious, extremely comfortable and a little slice of heaven. Before we knew it the extremely helpful and polite staff had a lovely welcome drink...

A very nice guesthouse with warm atmosphere, good service and lovely owners. The food is great and the pool very clean. The garden is beautiful and the views from there are superb. If you something organized the owners will do for you.

What a lovely spot! My wife and I spent an age researching the 'best' areas of Zanzibar to chillout in and I must say I think we came up top with Pakachi! Packachi offers Bandas ( a beach hut made of brick and traditional wood ) providing en-suite to the ground floor bedroom area with the added bonus of an...

Pakachi Beach Resort offers nicely decorated bungalows surrounding a garden with swimming pool at the beach in walking distance to Jambiani and Paje.

We stayed in Pakachi for four days and we were not disappointed. We completely got what we were looking for; a relaxing and friendly environment which restored our energies and harmony which we badly needed away from our hectic commitments.
