Situated in Kizimkazi on the southern tip of Zanzibar, Unguja Lodge is an intimate, luxury beach lodge that offers warm hospitality, amazing diving experiences and a wonderful rustic charm. From the spacious island-style villas right on the beach to the comfortable sun loungers just footsteps from the azure sea, Unguja provides high quality accommodation, relaxation and activities.

The PADI dive centre offers spectacular diving experiences on the coral reefs just off the beach; the marine life is amazing here and you'll encounter a variety of colourful fish and sea creatures - including, with a bit of luck, dolphins. Alternatively, head out on a day trip to Jozani Forest and historic Stone Town or go on a guided spice tour.


  • Small intimate beach lodge
  • Fabulous snorkelling & diving - reef within swimming distance
  • Lovely natural haven with lots of birdlife
  • Unique fusion of tastes by local chef Nyerere

Cool off during the heat of the day in Unguja's swimming pool - there is a shallow end for children - and afterwards relax on one of the sun loungers under a thatched umbrella.

You might want to grab a book from the wide selection in the lodge's library and reading corner. Connect to the outside world via your laptop or smart phone free of charge with the lodge's WIFI, available in the restaurant area.
