Pongwe Beach Hotel is situated on the beautiful tropical island of Zanzibar. Our Zanzibar hotel is situated on a picture perfect beach with white powdery sands, turquoise waters and shady palm trees – the perfect holiday destination! We pride ourselves on running one of Zanzibar’s most relaxing hotels with a stress free environment in a stunning location.

Our restaurant offers a variety of meals with fresh seafood and fish available daily; while still being small enough to cater for all dietary requirements. Our bar stocks local and imported drinks as well as making daily fresh juices and cocktails – perfect for enjoying next to the inifinity pool.

We have three different room types spread around our property; some on the white sands and others within the well tended tropical gardens. All our rooms are tastefully decorated in authentic African art and offer a range of facilities while still incorporating our eco-friendly principles. Our suites offer a stunning private plunge pool – what more can you need on your Zanzibar holiday.

We opened our Zanzibar hotel over 15 years ago and we are proud to have worked with the local Zanzibari community from then and till today. We still source most of our foodstuffs and building materials from the nearby villages. Through working with the villagers we have developed a variety of excursions and trips throughout the island including snorkelling on our own house reef just offshore and visiting the spice plantations which made Zanzibar what it is today.
