If your looking for a secluded beach hotel with rustic charm, where you can lie in a hammock undisturbed, this is the place. Very casual and rustic, with a minimal capacity of approx. 16 guests, so you won't be surrounded by tourists.
Santa Maria is located on the east coast of Zanzibar, right on the beach of the tourqoise Indian Ocean close to neighbouring fishing villages.
Guests stay in simple wood huts, called Bandas, that are equipped with a small bathroom. Each Bandas has a small front porch.
At night the place becomes magical. Small lanterns line the paths and the trees are lit with white mini xmas lights. There is a small beach bar, and an evening bonfire on the beach tended to by a local member of the Masai tribe.
The food was excellent. We had the best Lobster and King Crab that we've ever exerienced. We ordered the seafood in the morning through the owner/manager, Anna. Her husband put in the request at the neighbouring fishing village.Later that night we had a feast, eating at a table set up for us right on the beach.
Santa Maria is by no means a luxury resort, if this is what you're used to. However, if you're looking for a break from the tourism of Stone Town this is a great, friendly yet subdued place to relax.
We sourced Santa Maria from the Lonely Planet guide. The ph# is 0747-432655 (-)

Room Tip: Los bungalows son muy diferentes unos de otros, por lo que si tienes oportunidad de verlos antes mucho mejor. Hay diferentes precios según la localización puesto que dos de ellos se encuentran justo frente al mar mientras que los demás están unos metros más atrás (aunque se sigue viendo el mar).
