CASA DEL MAR

Location: This is a small bed and breakfast hotel situated in the increasingly popular tourist destination of Jambiani. This small village on the eastern peninsula of Zanzibar is still a quiet spot despite the development of many hotels here over the past few years. It benefits from unspoilt beaches (though seaweed is farmed locally so expect plenty of this) as well as a tidal lagoon which makes bathing possible at both high and low tide.

Accomodation: Casa del Mar has only 14 rooms housed in two buildings. The 8 lower ground rooms are simple and spacious with en suite shower and WC. The 6 first floor suites are split level and include living rooms, bathrooms and a king-size double futon bed. Extra beds may be added to cater for families or groups. All rooms have private balconies and are furnished with locally made items and decorated with East-African art. Rooms are basic but generally clean and comfortable.
