Dhow Inn
Had a wonderful stay!!!
It was a wonderful experience staying at Dhow Inn! The service was wonderful and the decor was very inviting. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. It was like stepping into an oasis being on the grounds of Dhow Inn after a long trip. I would absolutely recommend it to others. Also - the food was wonderful and I enjoyed the private beach. Perfect vacation whether solo or with significant other or friends. Beautiful place!

Dhow Inn
Underwhelming is the best thing I can say about dhow inn. Terrible internet, no tv in rooms, front desk often useless, food average (pathetic breakfast selection). Overall just go to a cheaper place in paje (as paje was amazing) and save yourself the money and disappointment

Beautiful location
Beautiful hotel location right on Paje beach..the room was large and very clean. The staff were friendly and obliging..just a short walk to the beach where there was plenty of little beach bars and restaurants..we would definitely recommend this hotel and would not hesitate in returning there ourselves.
