I spent 4 nights with my Mum at Ndame and could have happily stayed longer. Bungalows are set in a beautiful well-kept, peaceful and shady garden with views of the turquoise waters and white sands (50 metres away). The twin room we had was simple, but kept very clean, with flowers placed on the bed for our arrival and fresh...

We spent two nights here in a triple room bungalow, facing the extraordinarily beautiful, seemingly never ending Paje beach. The accommodation was basic but comfortable, secure, clean, with a good size bathroom with hot water. There were mozzie nets/fans and shelf units but no hanging space. (I would recommend taking a universal sink plug as we stayed in three different...

Had the best time here. Hanns and all the staff, especially 'our girls' were just fantastic. The food was incredible, from the coconut curry to king prawns.

Positive: -Very nice big rooms, cleaned every day. - at the beach - one day I went for a walk and I saw that the next village (Jambiani) didn't have any nice beautiful beaches (lot of seaweed), so you should definitely stay in Paje. - nice friendly personnel (although sometimes a little to eager to teach you Swahili which can...

On arriving at the Ndame Beach Lodge, some large gates are opened, and you can then check-in at reception. I was staying in room 14, while my friend was staying in room 12 next door. These are on the top floor of a two storey hut, so if you can, I'd try to ask for your own private hut, although...
