Property Description

Located on the east coast, in a quiet village of Michamvi Kae (15mins drive from Paje,) Sagando Bungalows is a place for families and budget travelers.
Sagando Bungalows can be easily reached with public transportation and is approximately 3mins away from a beautiful, quiet, tourist-free beach.
We offer free wifi with strong signals and a bar where guests could order drinks and food from.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy sides of Zanzibar, guests are welcomed to slow down their pace, kick back and relax!
We have 12 individual private rooms in our property and an open area with lots of swings, couches, hammocks and even a bonfire at night! There is plenty of room for guests to just relax and mingle. Imagine chilling on a swing around a bonfire, a drink in your hand, reggae music playing at the back, the atmosphere is plain awesome!

Besides a bar, we also have a kitchen where guests are welcomed to order food from! Our menu consists of some really interesting Thai fusion dishes which are well-received among our guests. On top of that, free breakfast buffet is provided every morning from 7:30am to 10:00am!

A secluded beach is just within walking distance, to be precise, 3mins of walk! The beach is quiet, serene, simply beautiful, you can walk for hours without any harassment from beach boys. The ocean is safe to swim in, and renting a kayak or a paddle board is possible. The beach is also the best place to see the sunset. A beautiful mangrove forest is 15mins walk away where you can see mudskipper skidding across the water. Those who wish to spend some time on a more energetic beach with a party vibe, Paje is only 15mins of dala-dala (public minivan) away!

There is a grocery store right across Sagando Bungalows where you can get necessities like sunscreen, shampoo, snacks, bottled water etc from. A local bar is only minutes of walk away. We also have a small library where guests are welcomed to borrow books from, and an in-house masseuse ready to provide you affordable massages to loosen you up. On top of that, we also provide excursions, day trips and tours, like dolphin tour, spice tour, snorkeling trips, sunset cruise and much more!

Lastly, our friendly staff is definitely one of our best assets, they know the village like the back of their hands and are always willing to give you insider tips and advice.

    Excellent stuff, delicious food and great atmosphere. We loved it especially as we were traveling with 16 month kid and he could play and explore around bungalows. We would book Sagando again!

    This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed relative to the price. It has a chill, exotic, Rasta funky vibe and staff. I would stay here for cheap then go over to the super nice beach front hotels for the lawn chairs and pools. This place is the deal of the century

    We had a great time. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The in-house kitchen is great!!! It’s walking distance from the Sunset Beach - you have to watch the sunset! Michamvi provides a glorious safe haven from the hustle and bustle that can be a Zanzibar beach, while still offering the tours and adventures if you want them - no one is particularly pushy. It was a restful and happy trip.

    The location is fantastic if you are looking for somewhere quite and a little bit off the beaten trail. The food is good but like elsewhere around the hostel be prepared to wait, pole pole is the motto on this side of the island. I recommend weirdly enough the pizzas and Thai currys. I stayed in two rooms at Sagando, both had adequate hot water and mosquito nets. However the walls were dirty and sheets stained. There were no hooks for wet towels swimmers etc. Some investment by owners needed

    Chill Out Hostel at the quite side of Michamvia Beach. Good staff - very relaxed, free brunch-breakfast, a lot of hammocks and a good kitchen. The bar is perfect for meeting people. Just 3 Minutes from the beach. Very safe place with a a good Bob Marley Vibe.

    Overall a funky place to stay, however it is out of the way if you want to explore the island. Staff are friendly but not always helpful, when asked where to go for dinner we were told that they sever dinner and no other information, we also had a situation where we payed $25USD for a load of washing.
