Overview

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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
