    After working in Africa for a while, Demani Lodge was precisely what I was seeking. The Lodge is very well run, clean, quiet and the staff are exceptionally polite and attentive. The rooms are spartan and very clean. The pool is excellent and the surrounds are ideal for relaxing and give one a sense of solitude. The meals were of the highest quality and very well priced. The lodge is not on the beach, but it's less than a 5 min walk to the beach action. Demani is excellent value for money.

    I thought Demani was great! Loved the atmosphere, the food was delicious and the housekeeping and cleaning occured everyday. Staff were also more than happy to assist us with any help we needed. The pool was nice and there were so many hammocks and cozy places to sit.The only thing, is I would recommend putting a hose or something by the rooms, because after you use the shower facilities you have to walk back through the sand and it gets your feet dirty again before going to bed. Just a thought!

    We really enjoyed our stay at Demani. The hotel layout and rooms are all beautiful, the staff are really welcoming and the food - particularly the breakfast juices - are delicious. And all is really great value for money and close to the beach. The only down side is that I arranged for a transfer from the airport and was quoted and charged what turned out to be a high price, despite negotiating (quoted $40, paid $35, turns out should be more like $25).

    The location is the only thing that prevents this getting a 10, but it is really really close to the beach so it's not a big deal. Everything else more than makes up for that. The food, the staff , the pool, and the cool buildings all make this place 100 % recommendable.

    Demani Lodge was a great place to stay. All facilities were extremely clean, the room had very efficient air conditioning and the overall atmosphere was nice. The lodge is a 20min walk away from Paje center, but can be conquered through the beach. The breakfast is included for guests and is really good!

    A great place to hide away in and chill, or use as a base to explore the east coast. Its set off the road just south of the busy section of the beach, away from the touts. You can't walk straight onto the beach from it but with a nice bar, pool, hammocks and sofas its a fine oasis. Decent facilities, beds a bit short for the tall people, mozzie nets. Good food at standard prices. Simple, fruity breakfast.

    Great little place. Staff is very nice, the rooms are simple but great. The pool is fantastic lol great to chill in after a day at the beach. Although the beach is 5 mins walk, page is about 30mins walk along the beach. Still, an enjoyable walk since you’re walking a gorgeous beach. The Thursday night party is great. I would definitely come back here if i come back to Zanzibar 😊

    Very Good

    25 Feb 2019
    Generally good hostel that met all my needs booking transfers etc. Staff wise, a great group of guys. Gabriel and the other guys were so much fun - always trying to have a good vibe. The wife of the owner treated her staff horribly. Telling them to perform petty menial tasks as some sort of punishment, like rearranging bottles on shelves. Very bizarre, negative behaviour.

    POSITIVE: there is a pool NEGATIVE: hot water heater-BROKEN NO WIFI in bedrooms, very weak near the pool not very clean unfriendly staff manager does NOT follow hours posted on door, so you might wait hours to get a problem resolved CLUELESS staff- I needed to speak with the manager and no one knew when she would arrive, or how to reach her BAD cancellation policy- I tried to cancel, and despite being almost fully booked at the hostel (I checked online) they still would not let me cancel.
