Have just returned home from a week spent relaxing at the Dhow Inn. Food was excellent and varied and we especially enjoyed the Zanzibar themed evening on Friday. Watching the kite surfers from the private beach was a highlight, along with trips to see the dolphins, Stone town and the Spice tour, all arranged through the hotel and reasonably priced....

Great place when you love silence, lovely beach, good food, friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms,....a real hideaway when you want to escape your busy and stressful life. We went for 9 days, and even in this short time, it was just wat we needed. True, sometimes wifi didn't work that good, but be real, you don't go to this...

Nice little hotel but wi-fi is very intermittant, hence problems on check out. We heard other people complaining and started trying to pay our bill by card at 11 a.m. prior to our next morning 3 a,m checkout. Unfortunately card machines do not connect successfully and at 3 a.m. we were practically held to ransom - in effect our taxi...

Paje Beach is undoubtfully an amazing place to go, by far one of the best beaches I have been to, specially due to its white sand and cristal clear waters... it is also amazing how the tide works. 100% recomended for kitesurfers! The hotel was average: Airconditionar isnt really that cold; wifi is almost non existant; terrible towels; its not...

Dhow Inn is a great little hotel set just a short 1min walk back from the glorious Paje beach. Hotel has been recently renovated and is in great condition, it's immaculately clean throughout and the all white decor gives a very crisp and fresh feel. We were greeted on arrival with a delicious welcome drink and promptly shown to our...

I would recommend DI for those seeking some quietness by the ocean. The hotel is not right on the beach (no ocean views from any of the rooms), its actually about 50 mts from the main building (dining area, bar and some facilities). The acess to the beach is trough a narrow sandy pathway. The hotel is nicely appointed and...

I've searched in Zanzibar for an idyllic beach resort and came across several but had to narrow down to one, of course. After comparing the reviews, checking the guests and hotel photos, and verifying the surroundings on google earth, we decided for the Dhow Inn, and gladly we did, because, although it's not top luxury, its a very well maintained,...

A small group of us stayed at Dhow Inn for 7 nights. The location of the hotel, very close to the beach and the lagoon, is great, especially if you are into kitesurfing. The rooms and the hotel facilities are nice and clean and you feel secured at all times. The staff is friendly and helpful though slow at times...

We were expecting a peaceful getaway on white beaches. What greeted us as we pulled into the car park of Dhow Inn was music blaring from the neighbouring bar.
