About Samaki Lodge
Samaki Lodge is a new, small-scale boutique hotel, well appreciated for its fabulous relaxed atmosphere. Perched on the beautiful beach of Uroa on the east coast of Zanzibar, 35 km from the international airport, the hotel is intimately composed of just 30 rooms. The furnishing, though elegant, maintains the style and charm of yesteryear Zanzibar.
The rooms are fitted with a selection of traditional furniture, including sumptuous Swahili beds draped with gauzy netting and adorned daily with fresh-cut exotic flowers. Every room also contains the necessary comforts of an en-suite bathroom, ceiling fan, air-conditioning, hairdryer, and safe. Six Deluxe Rooms also include a television and refrigerator. In addition, the hotel contains facilities such as a boutique, a spa and medical service, and also offers Wi-Fi Internet.
The lodge features a swimming pool area surrounded by a garden. Enjoy refreshments from the poolside bar and restaurant. The main restaurant offers either a buffet or à la carte service, with choices of both traditional Swahili and Italian dishes. At every meal there is a wide selection of meat, catch-of-the-day fish and vegetarian options available. Located just above the main restaurant is the lounge zone. In this cosy area, invite yourself to gaze out over the Indian Ocean and the coral reef.
The hotel is just footsteps away from a private white sand beach, ideal for relaxing in the warm African sunlight stretched out on handcrafted beach chairs under Zanzibari beach umbrellas. During your stay, you can take long walks on one of the world’s most magical beaches and meet and socialize with the friendly residents of Uroa village. Shielded by the coral reef, the stretch of ocean off the coast of Uroa is calm and offers safe swimming.
Another pleasant way to experience the Zanzibari sea is to allow yourself to be led out into the deep blue by the ingalawa, the local fisherman. Climb on board their boats and take an out-of-this-world tour of hidden sandbanks, swim in crystal water, and snorkel along the coral reef.
Samaki Lodge also has special arrangements with an extreme sports centre for scuba diving aficionados and kite surfers. Zanzibar offers guests who enjoy boat trips and snorkelling the convenience of renting boats for cruising in the open waters or deep-sea fishing.
Payment is required at least 15 days prior to clients' arrival. Single supplements apply.
