We have been volunteering in Tanzania for 3 months and came to Zanzibar for a couple of days relaxing. We didn't book anything on beforehand and stayed at different places on all sides of the island. When we were in Jambiani, we stayed in a hotel we didn't like. After a nice beach walk we passed by Sea View Lodge and decided to have a drink at the nice restaurant with a stunning view over the Indian ocean. We had a very warm welcome by the lovely owners of this place.
They showed us around and we immediately fell in love with this little paradise called Sea View Lodge. They just finished the hard work of making a whole new accommodation, so everything is completely new with a great eye for little details. We decided to stay here 4 days and had the time of our lives.
The rooms are very spacious and all have a wonderful view at the Indian ocean or at the relaxing pool with jacuzzi. The bathrooms all have very nice big showers and the beds are perfect for a good rest after day in the sun. The staff is more then fantastic, all they want is to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Besides the perfect breakfast they happily serve every morning, Sea Views restaurant is by far the BEST restaurant on the entire island. The young chef cook will make you fresh, perfectly spiced dishes and there's always room for special orders. Also the menu is very low priced, specially when you taste the great flavors.
The beautician near the pool is great as well. A pretty girl gives GREAT massages for a good price. She offers a lot more then massages and even though we only had a massage, we're sure everything she offers is great. After a day lying in the sun getting a massage here is the ultimate way of relaxing.
Jambiani is a very small and peaceful place and staying at Sea View will make you feel most relaxing and let you forget about the busy Western life for a while. Even though there are more than enough excursions Sea View Lodge can arrange for you. Tell them what you would like to do and they will make sure you'll have a great time. Spice tours, a day at Stone Town, boat excursions, rent a bike or Vespa, they can always offer you a nice excursion, that's perfectly arranged and good priced as well. If you're not in to these excursions, it's also possible to walk over the beach for hours.
After all, we have had more than an amazing time at this paradise and the owners of this wonderful place have a special place in our heart. They took care of us as the most warm and friendly people you can imagine. So if you are looking for a nice, small and quiet paradise to relax, don't hesitate and go to Sea View Lodge.
