Overview

Set along the beaches of Zanzibar, Echo Beach Hotel is a great place for people who want to taste African living whilst also relaxing by the sea. With 5 acres of remote and unspoilt beach exclusive to guests, this resort provides a good resting spot during a safari tour.

Guest accommodation consists of nine two-storey palm-thatched villas along the coast. The interior design is modern and slick, but unpretentious and homely. All the rooms are large and include en-suites and private verandas overlooking either the sea or the landscaped gardens. The hotel has good facilities to ensure that guests relax, such as a communal swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and bar, where the owners and staff can often be found teaching local games and telling stories in the evening.

Water-based activities are another attraction of Echo Beach Hotel. The beach stretches out onto a coral reef that can be explored by foot during low-tide, or by snorkel during high-tide at their own leisure. The resort also houses its own SCUBA diving instructor with whom guests can explore the Indian Ocean further. Excursions to the Jozani Forest and nearby spice plantations can also be arranged.

Like its architecture, dining at the resort combines many cultural influences to create a unique experience. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served in the hotel’s main restaurant, and always consist of high-quality and locally-sourced food. Most hotels in the region offer buffets, so Echo Beach Hotel’s three course evening menu a la carte is one of the more exciting dining experiences in the area.

The resort works for couples and families alike. There is no minimum age, so families with children of all ages are welcome. A family villa consists of a double connected to a twin or triple bedroom, both with en-suite bathrooms. Whilst there are no activities specifically designed for children, they seem to find their own fun in the pool and on the beach.

  • 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
