The Resort

A rich assortment of amenities to enjoy

The Seaview Restaurant

Dining with a stunning view.

Overlooking the ocean, this is where most meals are served. From breakfast to your liking – with pancakes, sunny side eggs, bacon, fresh fruit platter, Tanzanian coffee – to lunch and dinner. Most meals are served here but are sometimes moved to the pool deck and beach for a change of scenery when possible. Our team will treat you to a variety of fresh locally caught seafood as well as beef, chicken and vegan dishes, most of which have a distinct Pemba touch to them.

Please don’t hesitate to inform us of any special preferences or dietary requirements you may have so that we can accommodate you!

The Lounge​

Loose track of time.

The lounge provides comfortable seating where you can socialise and use our wifi. We periodically have communal dining when you may get to know your fellow guests. The attentive staff will provide you with drinks and snacks of choice before you even know that you wanted it. Socialize, relax with that book you saved or lose track of time in a discussion as the sun sets on the western horizon. Make sure to ask your service fundi to teach you how to play Bao, a traditional game.

 

The Beach Bar​​

"One of the most chilled places to enjoy a cold beer on the planet!"​

See the ebb and flow come and go (it rhymes!) while sipping away at a “Lemongrass Ginger Sling”, your feet buried in the cool sand, and a soft breeze cooling your skin. In our opinion, the sound of the breaking waves and a breathtaking sunset over the Pemba Channel makes this one of the most chilled places on the planet. Our bartenders specialize in a variety of sundowners and cocktails and will spoil you with fruit drinks and cocktails from the freshest handpicked island mango, lime, lemon, pineapple, and coconuts blended with a touch of rum to create uniquely smooth and refreshing drinks.

The Beach​

Stop time at the beach.

Some beaches are near mystical in their powers to slow time, erase reality, and hook you into a force greater than yourself. Our soft, cool, wide nothingness of snow white sand will calm your soul. We serve most meals on the main verandah overlooking the ocean but move to the pool deck and beach for a change of scenery when possible. At high tide the sea provides a huge natural, sandy bottom swimming pool.

 

The Pool Area​

Cool off.​

Our sparkling pool surrounded by loungers in the open or under cover, is there for your sunbathing enjoyment with bar service all day long.

The pool is a two tiered pool, with a depth of three meters at the deep end. This is the ideal place to start off your diving career and learn the basics.

Soothing expert hands will coax you into perfect relaxation – to the sound of rustling palms and breaking waves on the beach below.
