Unguja lodge is peaceful and secluded. It is well away Zanzibar's
busy tourist beaches, and the whole concept of the lodge has been
developed to ensure it works in harmony with the natural environment
and the people who live around it. This philosophy gives the place a
distinctive air of tranquility that makes your stay a genuinely
relaxing and enriching experience.
The building’s organic forms and stylish finish are
complemented perfectly by the lush tropical setting and the rough coral
boulders that surround it. But this place is more than just image,
it’s a lodge with personality; it reflects the warmth and vivacity of
Ralph and Elies its creators, and hosts. Their attention to detail and
their love of ‘good living’ bring the place to life.
The astonishing marine life just a short swim or boat ride
from the beach will ensure that whether you are a serious diver or just
someone who likes to snorkel there's lots to see. If you like
exploring on land you will find a thriving local culture. And if you
just prefer to relax by the pool, you will be amazed at the birds,
insects, plants and animals you see all around.
The lodge sits on a small coral cliff. Just a few steps down a
wooden stair and your toes sink into clean soft white sand. As the
tide rises the beach vanishes, and the lodge becomes an isolated haven.
When the tide drops and the beach reappears, washed and swept by the
sea. The lodge is once again connected to the outside world and you can
watch as local fishermen drag their boats out of the sea, and women
and children hunt the shallows for shellfish.
