Echo Beach Hotel
is located in the Bwejuu
area on the east coast of Zanzibar Island
off the Indian Ocean Coast
This is a decent quality small beach lodge set on a magnificent white-sand beach at the back of a stunning coral lagoon. It is a relatively quiet location, with a very nice swimming pool, lovely beach-front area, simple main building and just 10 guest rooms. There is also a watersports centre. The lodge is privately owned and managed, has a reputation for excellent food and is relatively low cost. There is a good range of activities in the area.
The main potential downsides are that the lodge is perhaps not the most attractive architecturally, has the potential for variable service levels and is very much a place for dog lovers. The beach is not private and the lagoon is very tidal. The lodge is too remote for some excursions around the island, the diving is not the strongest on Zanzibar and there is very little night-life.UpsidesActivitiesDownsidesSeasonsPricesTrips
