Our 14 bungalows with 31 rooms are strung along in lush tropical gardens on the shores of one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Stretching more than 250 m along snow white beaches, where the warm, turquoise waters caress the shores. From Ndame you can start a variety of activities like swimming with the dolphins, kiting, diving, visiting the local markets, snorkeling, learning about local culture and the spices which grow here in abundance. The Arabs called it the Spice Island. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in our restaurant and bar, have a chat with interesting people from all over the world.

We stayed 6 nights february 2019 and we just loved it! The people are great, the beach is great, the food is superb. Everybody are so helpful and welcoming. Right on the beach in a bungalow. Beautiful garden with exotic flowers.

The rooms are basic and ok. There is some shortage of water and electricity, but some days we even had hot water. Not that you need hot water when the air temperature is above 30 Celsius. I would recommend it mostly because of a surprisingly great included breakfast and location

I was last here two years ago by myself, but came this time with a Zanzibari family with children. I love the location, right on the beach where you can jump straight into the ocean or walk along the beach and watch the kite surfers and local kids enjoying the sea. I had one

Hi Lasse. Thank you for you e-mail. We do have the occasinal gay guest and there has never been a problem. Of course this depends on a nonagressive behavior. Our staff is very friendly and relaxed. We have travellers from nearly thirty different countries during this year and they come from all walks of life. Our staff and management welcome all kinds of people in our friendly way. However this is a largely Muslim society and gay practices are prohibited and carry jail sentences. It is practiced but very secretly. There are no clubs or places to frequent for gay people on the island. We have the finest and whitest beaches you can imagine and you will feel free and happy in our little paradise. Time moves somewhat slower on this beautiful coast. Looking forward to meet and great you one day. Kind greetings Hans md

Hi Megan thank you for your question. Most people enjoy Ndame Beach Lodge for the beach and its relaxing atmosphere. Paje beach has become very popular for kitesurfing, and there are diving schools nearby. We have an in-house captain who offers snorkelling trips on a local fishing boat out towards the reef. At the reception, you can book various tours to explore the island: Spice Tour, visit to historic city of Stone Town, dolphin tours, Jozani Forest, village tours, etc. Bikes can also be hired to explore the surrounding areas. We hope this helps - and we hope to welcome you here soon! Have a nice day The management
