Best place ever.

You will be sure of a warm welcome from your cheerful host and his lovely French wife. Be sure to look out for Mr Happy who will sort taxis and excursions at unbeatable prices. Swam with Dolphins for almost 2 hours thanks to Mr Happy and his local knowledge. The rooms are a little basic but fine for a few days. Fresh water and better lighting in the rooms would have made an enormous difference however if you accept one or two shortcomings then this place will not disappoint.

The hotel was amazing. The owner, Shipi, was very nice and helpful, even allowing us to ride with him into Stone Town one day. The private beach had many places to lounge, including 3-4 hammocks which allowed unparalleled viewing of the stars at night. The only "problem" with the place is something that cannot be altered: because it is on the south coast, it's a 3 hour daladala (local mini bus) ride to the hotel from the harbor. But that also makes this place amazing, since it is so secluded.

Amazing view,out room was in front of the ocean. The staff was lovely and very caring. The breakfast was included,it was very big but maybe it could have changed a little. You can also have lunch and dinner there, the good is very nice but a bit over priced.

This Place is heaven on earth! I wish we could have stayed forever! There were not many people, it was relaxing and quiet at daytime and nice in the night with bonfires and the locals playing on bongos. Perfect place to go with a little boat to see and swim with dolphins and discover nearby islands. And when you come back from your trips, lay down in the hammock and enjoy the sunset! We'll definitely get married there! Wedding in paradise!

A perfect place to rest and relax. The name of the lodge doesn't give false promises: it seems to be the promised land! Sandy beach, palms, hammocks, relaxed people, dolphins... Awesome fruits, juice and eggs are served for breakfast.The staff is super friendly and makes you feel welcome immediately. There is even a fire place for the evening with staff and guests sitting, singing and playing drums. I wish I could have stayed longer!
