We booked through Tripadvisors link to Booking.com & arrived to find the hotel closed & not the first guests to turn up surprised either!! However, credit to the owner Andre - it was not due to any fault of his but by a new lodge Pumzika kwa Babu 20km away that had linked their hotel to his reviews - and...

Bottom line: if you are lucky enough to have heard/spotted this place while planing your vacation, do yourself a favor and book now! The rooms, pool, private beach, outside cinema and nearby attractions are incredible, but nowhere else could you find Danielle and Andre, the owners and heart of Pumzika. This paradise was planned to perfection by them, and the...

The name Pumzika, relaxation, describes the hotel perfectly. We have stayed in quite many hotels in Zanzibar but Pumzika is definitely one of our favorites! Makunduchi is a really quiet and peachful village even though there are some nicer (and more crowded) beaches in Zanzibar. We really felt like home in the lovely designed and spacios bungalow. Danielle and Andre...

We spent a week at Pumzika Beach Resort at end of October 2014. Our hosts Danielle and André were absolutely wonderful! Danielle knows everything around Makunduchi and can organize great excursions. She's also both discrete and very attentional, making sure you're always in the most comfortable conditions. André is a very inventive cook (see separate review for restaurant "chez Andri")....

After a 10 day safari, this was a paradise to arrive in. Every detail has been thought of- from the mobile phone they hand you so you can call for drinks anywhere on the property, to the room decor, to the property design. The rooms are so comfortable and clean and the pool is just the right temperature and depth....

I will not repeat what the positive reviews have stated, it is all true. The hotel is run by a highly professional Swiss couple who are very committed to make your stay enjoyable- kudos to bother for giving us a great week. There was only one other guest there while we were there, so again more quiet then it would...

We were looking for a quiet and beautiful place to relax for a week by the beach. Pumzika Beach Resort exceeded all our expectations! The proud owners Danielle & Andre have created an amazingly beautiful oasis of trees and flowers, right by the beach in this remote southern corner of Zanzibar. Our bungalow Le Goyer was so beautifully designed, very...

I should say that I created a Trip Advisor account for the sole purpose of providing a glowing review for Pumzika Beach Resort. My boyfriend and I spent 3 days/3 nights at Pumzika in the Oezti Deluxe Bungalow late November 2014 and I would not have changed anything about our accommodation. I have provided some thoughts below for interested travelers:...

I travelled solo and was looking for something unique. Pumzika was it. I was upgraded to the deluxe bungalow (Ptit Lap). I loved my round bungalow. Danielle, Andre and the whole Pumzika Staff were wonderful. Not once did i feel lonely. Danielle organised activities daily for me with Abdullahi as my driver (Habib stepped in when Abdullahi was otherwise busy)...

“I stayed in both Le Goyer and Otzi and both were lovely! Le Goyer has a large upper deck balcony with sea view whilst Otzi is the largest of the bungalows with a massive wrap around deck overlooking the pool, it also has a small upper deck balcony however. Le goyer will offer more privacy however for me I loved Otzi the moment I saw its huge bathroom! You can't go wrong with any of the bungalows really.”
