Badhrish Athreya wrote a review 19 Nov
Bengaluru, India
We were 3 friends with our wives who stayed here 8-10 Nov 22 as a wind down after a 6 day hectic and exciting African Safari. We are Indians and vegetarian, so here is my review of the stay. The resort is Italian owned, Italian run and caters mainly to Italians, though people of other nationalities were also seen. It is on the Eastern side of the main island (Unjuga), about an hour from the city of Zanzibar. The pick up drop from the resort was efficient and timely. PROs: 1. The resort is very spacious, rooms are comfortable and the deluxe rooms are closest to the sea. the swimming pool is large and well kept but has salt water, not fresh water!!! the dining and foyer area is large and very comfortable, with a live singer in the evenings and some African tribal dance performance in the nights. 2. The beach is FANTASTIC, clear waters and absolutely WHITE sands and PRISTINE. You can walk out a kilometre during low tide!!!They have a lovely long Jetty, where there are 2 restaurants and you can have a pre booked meal at, where you are in the sea (literally), the view is picture perfect. 3. There is snorkelling, it is fabulous, the boat ride is provided by the hotel, the gear is on Rent. 4. The manager Mr Giorgio Scudu and his fellow staff are Very Very helpful and hospitable and so are the local staff. We had a great deal coutesy Mr Scudu. 5. The food variety esp the non Vegetarian is VAST and the local fruits are absolutely delicious. The freshly made pizzas were AWESOME. CONS: 1. The food is 90% Non vegetarian with literally nothing for vegetarians, however, i was able to resolve this by speaking to Mr Giorgio and the Chef and that resulted in a much better vegetarian fare. So please do keep this in mind if you are vegetarian / vegan. 2. The electrical points are European (like in Italy i guess) not like rest of Tanzania (UK), so please carry a Universal Adapter. 3. Free Internet service was only in the foyer, not in the rooms. Room service internet was premium at 10$/device/day which in todays day and age is an absolute NO NO. 4. The electric kettle and accompaniments like tea / coffee/ sugar / milk satchets were not in any of the rooms, but were provided free on request. OVERALL A fabulous stay, MUST DO in case of a chilled relaxed holiday especially after the 5-6 day African safari. We enjoyed our stay and I would rate this as amongst the BEST beach resorts I have stayed at. Thank you Giorgio, Cheers and blue skies

I highly recommend Dongwe Resort. I stayed 6 days and it was difficult to leave. Everything was very well organized from the pick from the airport and very warm welcome till the drop off. For example the day we were leaving it was very early morning the stuff was ready with the breakfast buffet at 4:30 am ! Impressive. Many thanks to Mr.Giorgio the manager of the resort… very attentive. The place is so beautiful, really specious and had so many activities during the day and evening’s entertainment. It’s always sth to do there. Not to mention the surrounding so beautiful. I had a pleasure to celebrate my birthday dinner at Blue Dongwe Jetty Restaurant. The food was delicious , the decorations , presentation and the lovely stuff was just brilliant. I had a really nice time during this evening- couldn’t ask for more ! If you are looking for a bigger resort with all the activities - Dongwe Resort is the one to be at. I will definitely come back!! Many thanks to the stuff ! The most happy people I have ever met. Had so much fun. I will see u soon :)

Me and my mom had an amazing experience while staying at Dongwe Resort. The rooms were clean, very comfortable, and the staff was amazing.

Just discovered this gem in Zanzibar at Dongwe Beach. It is luxury at it's best with beautiful spaces. On arrival we were offered ‘welcome drinks’. This is an all-inclusive hotel so if you like to eat be prepared for a feast. We booked the luxe room facing the sea on a white sandy beach. The service was excellent and the staff were amazing. I highly recommend the Dongwe Resort when visiting Zanzibar.

I was in Downge club from 24 to 31 of August, it’s a very good structure. The food is good and the staff is really nice. The room was not perfect specially the bathroom and there was a lot of humidity, pheraps the experience was really good. For the excursions we have relied on Gigi di Zanzibar that is the best guide on Zanzibar. You can contact Gigi directly on the beach without any problems. Gigi will take you to discover the best attractions in the island. He is accurate, punctual and economic
