The hotel was stunning. It looked perfect set amongst the trees and sand. When the tide went out it was one of the most stunning views, especially when the colourful Maasai strolled along the beach. My room faced onto the beach and was clean and spacious. There was a huge spider outside the door, so I do have to apologise...

Here you can forget about everyday life and just enjoy the sea and wind. An absolutely wonderful team of staff will take care of you and teach you what Hakuna Matata really means. Good kitchen and many excursions to choose from. and so the beautiful Masai who guard and sells crafts.

Having arrived in Zanzibar in the middle of the night, I was pleasantly surprised to wake up to the beautiful scenery of Paje beach staring right at me from my lodge window.

My personal opinion is that no one could say Ndame isn't good..it is way above good! I would recomend to everyone who want to go to Zanzibar to visit this place even just for a dinner..food is delicious! They can be sometimes a bit slow in bringing what you have ordered, but that is because they are overbooked.

Our 14 bungalows with 31 rooms are strung along in lush tropical gardens on the shores of one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Stretching more than 250 m along snow white beaches, where the warm, turquoise waters caress the shores.
