Unguja Lodge is situated on the southern tip of the idyllic Tanzanian island of Zanzibar. This intimate lodge provides the ideal island getaway in a beautiful, tranquil setting. The spacious villas are set among old mango and baobab trees, with mischievous black-tailed and red Colobus monkeys often seen on the property. The lodge can accommodate just 30 guests, and the manager lives on-site, ensuring a personal experience. The villas feature spacious bedrooms with mosquito netting on the beds, en-suite bathrooms, open-plan sitting rooms, and private terraces. Some of the rooms have sea views, while others have views of the lush gardens. Three of the villas also feature private plunge pools. The lodge can cater for both families and couples. The magical island setting is particularly attractive for honeymooners. The restaurant serves delicious, simple meals made with local ingredients, with seafood being a particular speciality. Choose from a selection of drinks at the bar, after an exciting day of island activities. These include snorkeling, scuba diving, sunset cruises, dolphin-watching and visits to nearby islands. Complete the relaxing experience with a massage treatment.
