CHAPWANI PRIVATE ISLAND RESORT

Location: An integral part of the skyline of Zanzibar , situated in the Stone town area 10 minutes from Zanzibar Airport and 5 minutes from Sea port.

Accomodation: There are 5 traditional Zanzibari bandas (thatched bungalows) which are split into 2 ensuite rooms. These share a terrace that overlooks the sea and have double height ceilings, wooden beams and traditional fabrics. The bedroom features a large double canopy bed - the traditional Zanzibari four-poster with a mosquito net draped over it - whose plump pillows are adorned with a freshly plucked hibiscus flower. There’s a small table and chair, a ceiling fan and simple but elegant décor. There’s just enough space for a cot or an extra bed if required, while at the back is a bathroom with a basin, shelves, an open-plan shower and a separate toilet. We suppose there’s a possibility of noise from your adjoining neighbour but we didn’t hear any. All in all, these are simple, practical, comfy beach rooms, perfect to lay yourself down in after stepping off the sand.
