Very cute and lovely hotel. Good food, very good service and a real hideaway. Just the Snow White beach could be cleaned from sea grass by the hotel staff. The villas are nice and clean and perfect size.

We enjoyed staying here. Management very friendly and accommodating. Staff courteous and well mannered. Clean and well kept. It is the little things, paying attention to details that make a difference and they are too numerous to mention. For example, the three pools are kept very clean. Every night they put a lamp in front of your door, decorate the...

Green and blue lodge was a great surprise: last minute booking, we had a great support from our first call! Nice staff and warm welcome on arrival. They even surprised me on my birthday with amazing floral decoration all over the balcony! It was magical! The hotel is next to a public beach where you can see the fishermen take...

The venue is pretty and well placed. There is a pool and a restaurant with a view. The service was appalling, or waiter Pandu was however clueless and rude. Shame, as the food was good and the cocktails were tasty.

My partner and I visited Green & Blue in September 2016 for 7 nights and very much enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located in Matemwe, North Eastern Zanzibar, around one hours drive from Stone Town and the airport. Situated between a public beach and very small and very poor fishing village, the hotel is accessed via a very bumpy...

We managed to reach the resort through a very bumpy road from Matemwe (Go left if you reach the village off the tarmac road. No signs of G&B). I contacted the manager before our arrival, and we were promised a room with a plunge pool because of our honeymoon. At arrival there was no room with plunge pool available. Although...

G&B is a really beautiful place. I think there are only 13 bungalows, which gives an intimate and personal. Our bungalow had an ocean view. It was very large inside with a huge double bed, a spacious bathroom and shower area to the side and even a plunge pool outside (actually just 3-4 feet deep so more a chill out...

My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon. On arrival we were upgraded to a sea view room. It was spacious and very well designed. The grounds of Green and Blue Ocean Lodge were beautifully landscaped and looks pretty in every direction. We found the staff very friendly. The restaurant was superb and possibly the best food...

Had a great stay at BnG, and would highly recommend. The managers as well as local staff were brilliant. Not sure why I was made to pay to a foreign bank for the pre-booking though, and not a Tanzanian bank. Nevertheless, the food and rooms were great.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ocean Lodge GREEN AND BLUE in the northeast of the spice island ofZanzibar is placed so that your gaze wanders over the turquoise waterof the vast bay and rests on the small island of Mnemba. Characterisedby its lush, tropical garden, the Ocean Lodge nestles right on theIndian Ocean, separated from it by a powder-fine, sandy white beach.The lodge forms part of a typical local fishing village. This may appear very simple and basic to our “civilised” eye. Tourists can expect scenes they won’t see anywhere else. ... more   less
