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 of Tanzania.


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.


The majority of visitors stay in Stonetown North for 2 to 4 nights, often in combination with other parts of the island such as Matemwe, Bwejuu, Michamvi, Paje and Kizimkazi or the islands of Pemba, Mafia or Fanjove.

These coastal areas are most commonly combined with Tanzania safari options such as Serengeti safari, Ngorongoro safari, Ruaha safari and Selous safari, as well as Kilimanjaro treks, usually in trips of 10 to 21 nights.
