Just off the South East coast of Zanzibar lies an authentic beachside experience: Indigo Beach. A family-friendly boutique hotel located on a beach overlooking the Indian Ocean, this is the place to visit for couples wanting to relax while their children are looked after in one of the most beautiful coasts in the world.

Life is simple by the sea. Barefoot, guests can stroll the coast from Bwejuu to Paje and discover nearby fishing villages and villagers. If the sand is too hot for feet, biking the beach is also an enjoyable option available. At sea, guests can explore the depths of the Indian Ocean with diving excursions or skim across the surface with kite surfing activities.

This simplicity is also reflected in Indigo Beach’s architecture. Nine bungalows are located along the beach, three of which are dedicated to families. Each of the six villa style bungalows feature a private garden, a queen bed with one optional rollaway bed for a child in the parents’ room, and feature external bathrooms. Some bungalows have direct access to the beach and offer incredible views overlooking the Indian Ocean, but maintain privacy with the secluded garden.

Food at Indigo Beach is served alfresco. Guests dine on local specialties and grills under a Bedouin tent, and can sip on cocktails in armchairs by their pools. Refreshing drinks are available at any time during the day. The hotel can also organise private meals in front of the guest's villa, with lobster and romantic candle-lit dinners for couples. Vegetarian options are available.

What sets this boutique hotel apart from the others is its attention to families. Its Kids Club, which welcomes children between the ages of 4 and 10 years, organises creative workshops, swimming pool games, and other beachside group games for the children to get stuck in with whilst their parents relax not far along the coast, or on a boat out at sea. Babysitting services are also available. The hotel accommodates families with one family villa and two cottages. The villa is located close to the pool, features a Swahili style sitting area facing the villa’s private garden, and consists of two bedrooms for a couple with two or three children. The two cottages can both accommodate a couple with two or three children, feature a private garden, and an annex room to provide more space for the children to enjoy.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
