Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge
formely known as Hakuna Matata Beach Lodge and Spa this lodge is located in the Stonetown North
area on the west coast of Zanzibar Island
off the Indian Ocean Coast
Situated 10km north of Stonetown, this relatively upmarket German-owned lodge is set around a small inlet on a quiet stretch of coast beyond the sprawling suburbs.
The site contains the ruins of Chuini Palace and the lodge retains a number of features, notably the restored swimming pool.
There are 13 comfortable bungalows, pleasant public areas which project out over the beach and a decent spa.
Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge is somewhere with which we do not have that much experience. The reason that there are not many lodges in this area is primarily because the beaches are relatively poor and have a reputation for sand flies.
But the upsides of being in such a relatively quiet backwater are considerable and guest reviews for the lodge are consistently good.
