Dongwe Ocean View

Dongwe Ocean View

One of Zanzibar’s amazing boutique hotels, Dongwe Ocean View offers a true “barefoot hotel” experience. Since all of the surfaces are covered with either sand or hardy wooden decking, guests are encouraged to remain as comfortably barefooted as they desire. With exceptionally stunning beach and ocean views off of Zanzibar’s southeast coast, the hotel offers a seaside paradise of azure waters and white sands.

Every room and suite at Dongwe Ocean View is sea-facing and includes a private balcony. To cater to a variety of accommodation needs, two massive beach houses encompass fourteen double rooms, two family rooms, and two honeymoon suites. High-end amenities include spacious room, tasteful furnishings, air-conditioning, mini-fridge, and en-suite bathroom.

Upon arrival, enjoy a welcome that includes a short orientation and refreshing fruit juice. Pass through the clubhouse, TV lounge, and boutique shop before discovering the eye-catching swimming pool. The resort centerpiece, the grand swimming pool offers panoramic ocean views, all from the comfort of sun loungers scattered around the spacious wooden deck.

Relax over afternoon tea, served every afternoon. An on-site restaurant serves ultra-appetizing fare, with fresh-caught seafood, locally-grown produce, and a mix of international and local specialties. Meals are not limited to being savored at the restaurant, though, and helpful staff can help arrange a romantic candlelight dinner on the beach.

While the highlight of any visit to Dongwe Ocean View is the pristine beach, guests enjoy a variety of activities. Adventurous swimmers wanting to explore the nearby reef at low tide are provided with complimentary reef walking shoes. With special arrangements through a professional Padi Center, staff at Dongwe Ocean View can help book kitesurfing and diving expeditions. Local fishermen are often available to provide boats and gear for snorkeling and fishing.

However, there is nothing like exploring the island and discovering things for yourself. Many guests embark on excursions on foot, in a vehicle, on a bicycle, or on a motorcycle, making unforgettable memories of a relaxing vacation in Zanzibar.
