We stayed at Ndame Beach Lodge for a week and greatly enjoyed ourselves. The sea in front of the lodge is perfect for swimming not like other beaches in the surrounding, with seaweed and rocks. It isnalso close to the kitesurfing schools. The restaurant was great although the staff was not always equally nice. Nonetheless, all in all we had...

Not easy to find a place that is not expensive for what it is in Paje. Even harder to find a place with reasonable prices, where privacy is respected, and you are not cheated and stolen. This place is safe, chill and on the beach.

Beautiful location with the white sandy beach just on your doorstep. Friendly staff, amazing food - our 3 day visit was just too short. Lodge offers tones of different activities you can do - or just lay on the beach. We would recommend the snorkeling trip just off the shore of Paje beach :)

We had a two night stay and managed to completely relax thanks to the staff and facilities at Ndame. It's incredible location- (so close to the beach!)- was brilliant.

Great relaxing lodge right on the beach in Paje. Perfect particularly for couples and people looking for a relaxed, cozy and well kept environment. It is far enough from the noise to stay relaxed, but close enough to easily access any activity in Paje. Food: Nice restaurant offering good mix of local food and very good pizza for those missing...

We stayed here in the family cottage that has two bedrooms and a small bathroom. The cottages are not big, but this is no big deal as you are outside most of the time. They all have ceiling fans. The walk to the beach is about 20 metres and you can hear the ocean when you go to sleep. The...

We (group of 5) stayed at this place for 5 days. After climbing Mount Kilimanjaro this is a very nice place to kick back, relax and enjoy the stunning sea view. Our accommodation was simple but sufficient. I would recommend a lodge closer to the beach for a cool breeze as it can get very hot when there's no wind....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ndame Beach Lodge in Paje Zanzibar has been a dream beach holiday destination for more than 8 years. Sun-seekers and Indian Ocean lovers from all over the world come to stay with us. Our 14 bungalows with 31 rooms are strung along in lush tropical gardens on the shores of one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Stretching more than 250 m along snow white beaches, where the warm, turquoise waters caress the shores. From Ndame you can start a variety of activities like swimming with the dolphins, kiting, diving, visiting the local markets, snorkeling, learning about local culture and the spices which grow here in abundance. The Arabs called it the Spice Island. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in our restaurant and bar, have a chat with interesting people from all over the world. At times we accommodate guests from more than 20 countries. A much loved highlight is our bonfire grill below the sparkling stars of the southern hemisphere.
