The ZANZIBAR MAGIC BOUTIQUE HOTEL is set right on the spectacular white sand beach near Matemwe village on the north-east coast of Zanzibar Island. Eco-friendly and small-scale with only 13 rooms, the hotel’s design is inspired by traditional African and Zanzibari architecture. It is built with the unique skills of local craftsmen using local materials like palm leaves for the thatched bungalow and bar/restaurant roofs and mninge, the local hardwood, for the carpentry. The hotel is set on the always pleasantly breezy east coast of Zanzibar Island. The location and special design assure you can enjoy your stay, whether you choose the beachfront, our bar and restaurant or the spaciously comfortable rooms. All rooms include spacious wooden terraces, magical views of the white, palm-fringed beach and turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
