Wonderful resort right on a quiet beach. We got the half board option since we had food for lunch with us. Their meals were great. The staff was very helpful. The units are individual bungalows; ours was a 2 bedroom unit which was well furnished and maintained. We toured their villa which, I think, was 7 bedrooms. It comes with...

We spent ten nights in this remote and beautiful location. Our cottage was right on the beach and at night the sound of the waves was wonderfully soporific! The cottage was well furnished with a good sized bathroom and shower - hot water, plugs for charging computers & cameras, and wi-fi available in the bar. Florian and Laura (the current...

Really amazing place and the food was great. Prepare for a long drive though....In the end it is absolutely worth it. The beach is out of this world. Perhaps the best beach in Tanzania. Try the battered fish :-)

We stayed in the family bungalow for 5 nights and enjoyed every moment. It was amazing to step out of our bungalow onto the beach and be so close to the water. It was a perfect place to unwind after travelling for over three weeks. A quiet, beautiful spot to relax with swimming, beach walks, massages, a good book and...

Only 10 lodges straight on the empty beach. Beautiful interior decoriation, excellent food and a friendly staff with good knowledge of English. Spend half a day snorkling 6 miles out from the beach on a sandy reef and the staff will serve you an excellent lunch. Take a bodaboda (motorcycle taxi) to Pangani to experience a town wihout a single...

This is one of the special spots in the world! Situated in the bay of Pangani beach. Spacious and clean, modest but well decorated rooms and family bungalows combined with a great restaurant (ask for the crab, really great and worth a detour if you would stay somewhere else) The management is in hands of Florian and Laura, who are...
