The restaurant, facing the ocean, is situated under a large thatched roof which also houses the lounge and bar.

Cuisine is a blend of Italian and African food. Meals are varied and generous with fresh fruits and vegetables sourced locally, a large choice of pasta, meat, fish and other seafood.

The perfect location for the aperitif is the delightful open-air palafitta built directly on the beach, touched by the sea, with superb views. You can lounge on sofas and enjoy cocktails or tea while admiring the horizon or the dazzling beauty of the night sky.

Environment and local community

Hakuna Majiwe has an outstanding attitude towards the local community in Zanzibar.

All the profits from the lodge go towards assisting the development of a fully comprehensive children’s hospital in nearby Paje. The hospital is called the Vanda Albertini Children’s Hospital and it will be completely free of charge for local children. The building is designed to house 96 beds for children as well as a surgery theatre, a delivery room, some laboratories for specialists and analysis, x-ray and echography devices, a first-aid, dialysis facilities, dental care unit, and other necessary equipment. Hakuna Majiwe also provides a base for the operations team involved in the development of the Hospital. A triumph, and a first class example of responsible tourism.

Our opinion

The rooms are spacious and the swimming pool is a good size. The service is excellent and the beach is beautiful. One drawback is that the rooms are not air conditioned, though they do have electric ceiling fans. Bring cash because the hotel does not take credit. The complimentary fruit juice upon arrival is a very nice touch!

Overall this is a stylish, well designed resort that offers a great service.
