Situated on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, the Pongwe Beach Hotel is set within a secluded bay on the east coast of Zanzibar 35km from Stone Town.
The resort’s tropical gardens surround sixteen beach front Zanzibarian cottages, furnished with local hand crafted Zanzibarian doors and traditional beds.
Pongwe Beach offers a wonderful 'paradise island experience'. The bay's clear blue waters, protected by the reef one kilometre from the shore, are ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
A smaller sized hotel with sixteen traditional beach-side cottages and an intimate atmosphere, Pongwe Beach is set right on a stunning, white sand beach lined with palm trees.
The sea view cottages have traditional lime wash walls, and thatched roofs made from woven palm leaves. Being a small hotel, the serivce is attentive even during peak-season, the atmosphere remains relaxed, intimate and exclusive.
All cottages have en suite bathrooms, with Moroccan style walk in showers and a private terrace where guests can enjoy the sunrise and a leisurely breakfast.
The hotel has it's own traditional wooden long boat which guests may gain access to deep waters before and beyond the reef. This provides the ideal opportunity for game fishing - tuna, marlin, barracuda and king fish.
Snorkeling trips can be arranged to Mnemba Atoll where to view many coral species and marine life; and to Kizimkazi where sharks, dolphins and turtles can be found. Scuba diving can be arranged whether it be a day dive or a Padi open water course.
Pongw Beach is ideal for a relaxed honeymoon by the beach.
