Pongwe Beach Hotel

Pongwe Beach Hotel, Zanzibar Island, Zanzibar Archipelago

Pongwe is a small hotel on the North-East coast of Zanzibar, on an isolated and idyllic beach. White-washed bungalows are set among the coconut palms, with verandas facing onto the Indian Ocean.

Under the makuti thatch roofs the rooms have cool terrazzo flooring, and mosquito nets are draped over traditional Zanzibari beds. The food is exceptional and high standards are maintained by the kitchen at Pongwe.
