If you are looking for a peaceful place with an amazing staff, delicious food and tasty coctails, this is the best place you could ever think of! We stayed there for 6 days after exhausting Kilimanjaro climb and safari in Tanzania. This was perfect place to relax and clear up our minds. We had a room on the 1st floor...

Just as we had imagined : a very nice, peaceful, beautiful AND simple place to stay in one of the remaining "wild" places in Zanzibar (the rest of the island is full of resorts). We really enjoyed our stay. Cristina and Paolo where very welcoming and helpful in any of our request as well as the all staff.

Christina and Paolo were nice and welcoming host who were very helpful and made our trip very memorable. I love Jambiani. This our first trip to Zanzibar in Tanzania. The hotel is right by the beach with lovely sceneries is the ebb and flood that dominates and rules the life of the sea in Jambiani. I love Africa

A small Hotel with only 6 rooms led by a nice Italian couple. The rooms are very big, also the bathroom. The area around the Hotel is small so you feel very private but also a little limited. No deckchairs on the Beach but in the garden of the hotel. Food is good.

Great location on the east of the island. Boats and fishermen galore. The room was spotless, the food was amazing and the view cannot be beat. Friendly Italian owners that made us feel right at home. Highly recommend.

I absolutely loved this place. Six rooms only which makes it very secluded. Its an hour drive from the airport and the center of the city. The staff are very friendly and amazing. The food was okay not great though. The neighborhood is basically a village which gives you great interaction with the locals. The rooms are clean and airconditioned....
