Tucked away down a sandy track and right on a beautiful coral fringed beach lies Zanzibar House. Take the time to hunt down this hidden gem close to Matemwe Village on Zanzibar's north east coast. The time and trip will be well worth it.
Matemwe is a stunning village and beautiful part of the east coast that is well worth a visit. Zanzibar House is a beautiful, traditional, building and the main selling points are firstly the rooms which are spacious and well furnished (though bathrooms small, fitting one...More

Hi, as far as I know beaches are never private in Tanzania. The same applies to the beach along Zanzibar House. However, it has beautiful soft sand and is very wide with low tide so there's plenty of space to walk, play or go for a swim. From the Hotel you just walk through the back garden (with pool) straight onto the beach. March is in general part of the rainy season so maybe check out the weather for Zanzibar when you book.
