Bawe Tropical Island Resort
is located 7km offshore in the Stonetown North
area on the west coast of Zanzibar Island
off the Indian Ocean Coast
Back in 2003 we were approached by one of the hotel owners in Stonetown with a view to working on a new lodge on Bawe Island.
We were taken out by boat and found it to be a really beautiful spot, with fine sandy beaches and a pleasant forested hinterland. But ultimately we recommended not to go ahead because we felt that its proximity to the town and its busy shipping lanes was too much of a compromise.
Completely independently of this, in 2008 a new five star 15 room lodge opened on the island. To our shame we have still not got around to visiting it, but we hope to in the near future and will let you know soon as we do.
