Mapenzi Beach Club

Enjoy a long stretch of palm-fringed beach shared only with the local fishermen bicycling past. The hotel is traditional Zanzibari style, with a huge thatched makuti (palm-thatch) roof and coral walls spread out on a sloping hill. The gardens are lush, full of tall palm trees and vibrant bougainvillea – true paradise!
