ABOUT THE HOTEL

Dotted between the palm trees of Zanzibar’s South East Coast, along an unfurling swathe of postcard-perfect coastline, sits one of the best lodges – Hakuna Majiwe.It’s the Place of No Stones, a site so idyllic that we named our hotel after it.

‘Hakuna Majiwe’, means ‘place without stones’. As individual as its name, this Paje beach hotel has a special atmosphere, being different to other hotels. Set on a fabulous 6 kilometres white-sand palm-fringed and desert beach, cooled by the ocean breeze, it is the perfect gateway to an exotic African paradise.

The 20 luxury cabanas of Hakuna Majiwe Lodge are spread out along this quiet, palm-fringed beach, each leading straight out onto the hourglass-fine sands and jade waters of the Indian Ocean. The cabanas pay homage to our host culture, mixing thatched roofs and wooden floors with the intricate ornamental vidaka plasterwork of the Swahili Coast to create a space that is both shamba chic and authentic in style. Walk-in dressing areas, artisan four-poster beds and generous bathrooms ensure that style is complemented by the comforts expected on your holiday. Be it a private honeymoon retreat or hosting your family in our dedicated 5 bed suites, comfort and privacy are always guaranteed.

Experience our Jungle Spa and landscaping, our expansive palm-lined pool sheltered in the abundant tropical splendour of the Hakuna Majiwe estate.

With a kite school for the more intrepid guests and an excursion centre for the more curious wishing to explore the island, there is always something to do if the relaxation becomes too much.

Our home is where our heart is, though, and Life is Always Best At the Beach at Hakuna Majiwe.
