Property Description

The Dreamer's Island - Zanzibar's first and only floating house - offers comfy and affordable accommodation in the middle of the Indian Ocean, just off shore Stone town. The delicious complimentary breakfast will guarantee you the best start in your day exploring the town. Our Cocktail bar and Restaurant are open until 11 pm; you can enjoy tasty sundowners looking over Stonetown - a UNESCO world heritage - or enjoy fine fresh seafood meals on our terrace.

We are currently anchored in Stone town, in front of the famous Forodhani Garden with a view on the House of Wonder. The city center is just a 1-minute walking distance away, the ferry terminal can be reached in 15 minutes and the airport after a 15-minutes drive.During the day you can decide whether you just want to relax on the boat, go snorkeling or stand up paddle boarding, maybe try fishing and give the catch to the chef to prepare you something extraordinary! Or you can explore Zanzibar on your own or by doing some of the various tours and trips that are offered. We will help you arrange whatever you feel like doing!

The floating house and private bungalow is just a short boat ride from the shore, transports are offered until late at night, at our guest's convenience (after 10pm a surcharge of TZS10,000 is taken). You can choose between our basic rooms in a rustic ambiente or our private bungalow with more comfort, especially loved by honeymooners and families. Both offer you the undeniably stunning first row view on the sunset over the Indian Ocean.

    We were on our honeymoon and we were given a lovely and friendly reception from all of the staff, as well as providing us with a welcome drink which was a great treat after our flight. The staff were very happy and relaxed, as well as being helpful. We thought the idea of staying on floating accommodation sounded like a fun experience, (which it was) but we were also impressed that it had a bar to get drinks and there was a lounge area and great viewing area on the top deck. Great experience!

    Really nice place to stay for one or two nights. Very relaxed atmosphere and great staff. We booked a twin room, but it doesn’t exist, only 2 double rooms and a floating bungalow. You have to be really friendly with your travel partner to stay together in the double bed ;-) However you can also sleep outside and enjoy the stars, there is a solution for everything here! They will take and bring you to shore whenever you want, and it’s not too far from shore.
