“Nice stay with super staff”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

We have come to Zanzibar for kitesurfing. The village of Paje is a perfect place. We stayed in Savanna and Ocean Hotel. About 100 meters from the beach but them have a private beach. Good place for sunbathing but even better for kiting. At that time we were the only ones on the water, private sea! The hotel is nicely decorated in an African style. What makes this hotel special is the staff. They are all so friendly and happy to talk with the guests. Occasionally make a joke, it's all there. Anyone who goes to Paje I recommend to stay in Savanna and Ocean.

All activities that the island has to offer such as Spice tour, dolphin tour, massage and visit Stone town. The hotel can arrange everything for you at a great price.

Savanna and Ocean is a very nice litle hotel with charm and lot of soul. it have nice rooms for a small price and are close to the beach of your dreams. the water on the beach is newer really deep so it is a good beach for kids. the hotel has a nice cheap reastaurent and the waiters and staffs of the hotel are very, very nice. in the reception it is possible to buy most things that you would need on a daily basis. also the lokal super market of paje is close to the hotel and the walk trhough paje to get to the super market is a big experience itself. everything is nice and chill around and inside this hotel and i give my best recomendations. also the hotel can arange any kind of trips and tours that you would like and i´had some good experiences with them aranging dolphin tours and tours to prison island for me.

Savanna and Ocean is a very good place to be. It is placed in a cosy small village called Paje, It's a place for everyone, couples, familiy and friends. There is a good atmosphere at the hotel, it is a warm and relaxing place to be. The staff at the hotel is also very friendly. The hotel is placed very close to the most beautiful beach, where there is many opportunities for bathing, kiting and diving. I have enjoyed my stay at the hotel very much and I will recomand this hotel for everyone.

Savanna and Ocean is a really nice hotel. It is very african with a little "garden" in the middle where you can lie in the hammark and enjoy the weather. The food is really good and so is the prices.
The staff is so sweet and helpful, they joke with you and make you feel at home.
There is 2min to the beach which is very beautiful and lovely. You can kitesurf, snorkling and dive in the fantastisc Indian Ocean.
The rooms are neat and cosy. I will definently comeback back!

I love to stay in the African inspired hotel with the palmtrees around me while lying in the hammak or sitting in the restaurant drinking an icecold milkshake or eating some of the delicious food the staff serves with a smile on their faces. And with only 50 metes to the beach where you can kitesurfe, eat in one of the nice restaurants or plan a dive to one of the million spots around Zanzibar, or take a walk to Paje town only 10 minutes away, you can easely spend a whole day in the area.

Savanna and Ocean is a great charming hotel in the heart of a little village called Paje, which is located on Zanzibar. The hotel is placed in a walking-distance to the beautiful zanzibar-beach and there are good opportunities for bathing, kiting and diving. The atmosphere at the hotel is warm and cosy. And the people who works here are so friendly and will do anything for your wellbeing. So i give my warmest recomandation of the Savanna and ocean hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

Having stayed at Savanna And Ocean for some time, I have experienced the great rewarding cousy feeling you can get at Savanna And Ocean. The Hotel is the cheapest in Paje and located only 100 yards from the beach. Unfortunately you don't have a view of the Indian Ocean. This however is also very nice sometimes and helps with the cousy little feeling you get at savanna and ocean. The staff is very nice and likeable. It is easy to talk with them and some of them know a few danish phrases (my nationality) because of the adventure school located just beside the hotel.
