Unguja Lodge is located on the southwest coast of Zanzibar island in Tanzania.
This high specification Dutch-owned lodge is certainly one of the best on the island. Set on rocks above a pleasant little beach, tropical gardens contain elegant public areas centred around a lovely pool. The eleven guest suites are very large two storey affairs, most overlooking the ocean, those in the second row being compensated for with a plunge pool.
A real plus point is that lovely owner Elies and her family host the lodge, ensuring a slick and very personable atmosphere.
Activities include village walks, sailing trips and picnics on offshore islands and some excellent diving on the little-visited reefs to the south.
Although we love Unguja Lodge, we do feel that this southwest corner of the island is usually best visited in combination with the more obviously scenic beaches of the east coast, Matemwe Bungalows being an obvious choice.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
