Relaxing End To The Trip
Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge was the last stop on our family trip to Tanzania. I went with my parents and my sister, and we were in love with the setting from the beginning. You leave the craziness of Stone Town, and the road to Bububu behind as soon as you enter the gates. Loved our room, the view, the pools, and the staff. So helpful and friendly. Good base to explore the rest of Zanzibar easily - close to Stone Town. 2 pools, a spa, cool ruins, and easy beach access. We were very happy to have such a nice relaxing end to our trip!

Beautiful boutique hotel
Nice boutique hotel, the communal bar / restaurant area is fantastic with beautiful views and sunsets. Renovations start sometime soon to improve minor irritations such as low water pressure and regular power cuts (although these are common everywhere in Zanzibar).
