Located near one of the finest beaches of Zanzibar, Paje on the East-coast offers the finest white sand and clear blue ocean water. Situated only 100 meter from the beach, this area is more quiet and private for you to relax or to take a swim then the area with kite surfers and local fishermen a little distance away. The village centre is at walking distance. Here you can find many small shops and see people busy with the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

    My friends and I had an exceptional stay at the Summer Dream lodge. The place is perfect for chilling out with its selection of hammocks, sun loungers, beds, etc. And if that's not enough then it's less than a 30 second walk from the beach. The staff are very accommodating, whilst the food is great (and reasonably priced). Also, the flexibility and trust provided by Cindy (manager) was much appreciated, who let us settle our final bill (inc. room, food, drinks and trips) at the end of our stay.

    My stay at Summer Dream was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It has a very relaxing atmosphere but it was still easy to meet people. Nice and close to the beach, and lots of places on the property to hang out. Good selection of food and drinks, and the wifi is pretty decent. My only complaint would be that my bed net had a few holes in it so I got some mosquito bites, but Jay says new ones have already been ordered. I would definitely come back!

    Best experience, I extended my trip here as long as I could. Such an amazing place to end my trip as well. Relaxed and comfortable with the hammocks and swinging beds. The chef was the best on the island, everything was amazing. Breakfast was sooo good!!! All of the staff is great and so helpful. Nice drinks at the bar. I met a lot of people here and I’m so glad I chose summer dream lodge. Highly recommend to anyone

    Had an awesome time at Summer Dream Lodge, we have been recommending to everyone we've encountered throughout our travels. The staff is friendly and help foster a very social vibe in the hostel. They took us to parties at night and organized group tours and excursions. The outdoor hammocks and swinging beds are relaxing, the bedrooms and bathrooms are clean. Definitely worth a visit!

    The staff were always helpful and friendly and provided some great tips during my stay. Breakfast was great - there was a good choice and variation each day. It is located approximately a 20 minute walk from the town (I found the road safe to walk along in the dark evenings) and 50 metres from the beach, but note that you can't walk along the first part of the beach towards Paje during high tide.

    Had a great vibe, large courtyard for chilling and 1 minute walk from the beach. Close to party scene while far enough to avoid noise if you want a quiet night. Staff were also wonderful and incredibly helpful...

    A decent budget stay on a secluded part of the beach. Free breakfast is quite nice- you can choose what eggs you want and it comes with toast, fruit and spreads (the typical free breakfast on Zanzibar.) I stayed in a private room with its own bathroom. There was a gross cockroach and lots of mosquitos (the windows don't have glass and are just covered with fabric- which also makes it super loud.) The bed frame broke in the middle of the night while I was sleeping. Find somewhere else to stay.

    Keep in mind about the location - it is about 15min walk to the main beach area of Paje where all the cafes, bars, activities and people, and this way is NOT dueable on high tide nor at night alone. staff were OK. The place itself is nice but when I was there it was too empty. Toilets were clean.
