Dotted between the palm trees of Zanzibar's South East Coast, along an unfurling swathe of postcard-perfect coastline, sits Hakuna Majiwe, the Place of No Stones, a site so idyllic that we named our hotel after it. The 21 luxury cabanas of Hakuna Majiwe Lodge are spread out along this quiet, palm-fringed beach, each leading straight out onto the hourglass-fine sands and jade waters of the Indian Ocean. The cabanas pay homage to our host culture, mixing thatched roofs and wooden floors with the intricate ornamental vidaka plasterwork of the Swahili Coast to create a space that is both shamba chic and authentic in style. Walk-in dressing areas, artisan four-poster beds and generous bathrooms ensure that style is complemented by the comforts expected on your holiday. Be it a private honeymoon retreat or hosting your family in our dedicated 5 bed suites, comfort and privacy are always guaranteed. And at the heart of the tropical splendour of our spacious grounds sits the Tradewinds Restaurant, from where our hard-earned reputation for can-do hospitality has been forged. An evolving menu of Swahili-Zanzibari cuisine using locally-sourced ingredients is freshly prepared with International flair each and every day, paired with carefully-selected wines and juices, to create lasting culinary experiences, worthy of your visit. Private dining, with butler service, is always available for those seeking intimate memories to dine for. Jungle Spa and landscaping our expansive, palm-lined pool sheltered in the abundant tropical splendour of the Hakuna Majiwe estate. With a kite school for the more intrepid guests and an excursion centre for the more curious wishing to explore the island, there is always something to do if the relaxation becomes too much. Our home is where our heart is, though, and Life is Always A Beach at Hakuna Majiwe.

We had such a lovely time in Hakuna Majiwe. The staff is super helpfull and kind. On woman's day they give us a super discount dinner, give flowers to my girlfriend and made us dinner on the beach with buffet and a delicious cake to every woman. We felt so touched with this gesture. Plus: woman stuff didn't work that night and dinner next to us on the beach The food is good and with a good price, the bedrooms and toilets are just beautiful and the bed super cozy. Location: 5 stars near the beach We had a lovely stay here and we recommend to everyone

Nice nature and beautiful withe beachfront with lot of shells 🐚 In this property we felt like at home, calm and quiet place with very helpful and friendly staff who made our day’s nicer! 🤗🥰 The food was really delicious and similar like in Europe. There was all necessary facilities and also the price was suitable for us. The best thing about this place was swimming pool - deep, fresh and almost empty. ☺️ The manager of the property is professional and he knows how to deal with the clients, he told us some nice stories and gave us some good advice but the most amazing thing about him and this places was the freedom! Three days we felt so free and relaxed 😎. We tasted different kind of the cocktails 🍸 by the bartender and manager as well and they were perfect, especially ‘Mamma Africa’ 😁. Thank you a lot for great time and good memories 🤗😎☺️

The welcome wagon at Hakuna Majiwe in Paje, Zanzibar was warm and hospitable. Lily at the reception was very accommodative and managed to get us whatever we needed on check in. We were upgraded to a sea facing bungalow. A downside was that the rooms had no “closable” window shutters so the wind would blow in sand into the room. The bathroom was spacious but the water was too salty. The meals were selected based on the day’s menu and the cost of the room was reasonable for a half board stay. The Chef - Immanuel, accommodated our requests and always prepared delicious meals. I’d suggest the grilled king prawns. The housekeeping staff were kind, friendly and hospitable. There were so many reasonably priced activities to select from and Lily organized everything for us. The ambiance was serene and romantic, and we enjoyed our stay at this beautiful resort.

My best friend and I were traveling for her birthday. First, the manager kindly offered us an upgrade in the room with the beach view thanks to the low season. That was really nice of him. He also arranged with the Chef a birthday cake for the dinner on the beach. All the staff came to sing and wish her an happy birthday. That memory was amazing. Then during our trip of 8 days in all inclusive, we had the best service ever. The staff is always available and willing to help. Food and beverage are all local, fresh cooked and prepared on demand. Quantities are so generous and dishes were so good. At night, the staff prepare your room against mosquitos (they close the mosquito nets and put spray on it). This is really appreciated. We have never been bitten. More generally, cleanliness and hygiene were impeccable. Regarding the place, this lodge is absolutely fabulous, peaceful, serene and wild. In a few words, that journey was our best travel ever (we’ve been into a lot of different countries…) We thanks a lot George the manager and all his staff for the care with which they have sourrounded us. We will for sure come back ! Thanks again

Hakuna Maijiwe is in the quiet end of Paje, but in walkable distance to village, many cafes on beach, kite surf schools etc. Peaceful place means there is never noisy and its possible to hear birds and waves and see small animals in the beautiful garden of hotel. We stayed in oceanfront room and that meant we saw sunrise on the sea in the morning from our bed. At the same time it is not too close to the beach and feels completely private. The best part of the hotel are its people - kind, helpful and trying to do your stay relaxing. We enjoyed a lot Maasai show in the hotel, dolphin watching and snorkeling trip to Kizimkazi organised by Juma, informative and funny chats with hotel manager Geroge,
