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.

The location is really good (slightly quieter part of Jambiani) and the chalets are really spacious. The beach & sun loungers are literally a stumble from the chalets and they also have a nice big pool at the back. Didn't try the food but the menu looked quite basic. Also pretty

We stayed here for 13 nights and really had a good time. Prior to us arriving and after we booked we saw one or two ‘poor’ reviews. However, these seemed to cease before we arrived and were replaced by some very complimentary ones. Our experience was really positive.

Bonjour nous arrivons la semaine prochaine A paje, j'ai vu que l'hôtel n'´dst pas équipé de climatisation dans les chambres ... est ce que c'est supportable et surtout n'y a t'il pas trop de moustiques qui entrent ? Merci
bonjour nous sommes étions ds cet hôtel en août et nous n avons pas eu chaud la nuit, ni le jour d ailleurs. Aucun moustique! Le lit est entouré d une moustiquaire vous êtes donc protégés. Il faut que vous sachiez que l hôtel est très près de la mer et qu il y a pas mal de vent. Il faisait même assez frisquet le soir. J espère que ces informations vous aideront. Amicalement et bon séjour !
