Its a very relaxed, friendly place and all the staff are welcoming, happy and helpful. Sea views are fantastic and the outside/bar area/pool etc are uncrowded so you dont have to be bothered if you dont want to, but there is the chance to chat if you are feeling sociable. There is wifi at the bar and non stop reggae...

I wanted somewhere beautiful to chill out. This place was perfect. The setting is beautiful with spectacular views. Accommodation is clean, comfortable and best of all authentic. The beach bar, pool and array of beach furniture - loungers, swinging chairs, hammocks all lend themselves to relaxing by a stunning expanse of beautiful blue ocean. The menu is limited but everything...

Down to earth, comfortable and relaxed. I missed this place from the moment our taxi pulled out of the property. Some of the best food we had on the Island came out of their kitchen. Staff are all lovely and the owner has a very hands on approach. They really do make you feel like family. Yes the shower is...

This was our favorite spot in Zanzibar. We stayed for 3 nights as soon as we landed on the island and it was idyllic. The place, the bungalows, the staff, the vibe, the food. It's rustic, and real, and just a really brilliant relaxed, casual, chilled out place to be. Very highly recommended if you wanna keep it real and...

After doing the north Tanzania safari circuit we came to Zanzibar to relax and recharge. We heard good things of Promised Land and the dolphin tour and it was even better than expected. The rooms are bungalow style with thatched roofs, large wooden beds and a serviceable bathroom. Each one has a small veranda and chill area. No aircon in...

Our party of 4 spent 3 days and nights here in early May during rainy season. We were blessed with perfect day-time weather, as all rain came between sunset and sunrise. Shevy, the owner and our host, was always gracious and did everything in his power to make our stay enjoyable. His kitchen staff of Shadrak and Peter were outstanding....
