Casa del mar is one of the luxurious hotels, located on the Southeast Coast of Zanzibar on the Jambiani village.
Jambiani is approximately one hour drive from either Stone Town or Zanzibar Airport.
The hotel arranges transfers for an agreed rate. Alternatively a taxi can take you there and a shared minibus runs from Stone Town to Jambiani.
14 rooms housed in two buildings.
The 8 lower ground rooms are simple and spacious with en suite shower and WC.
The 6 first floor suites are split level and include living rooms, bathrooms and a king-size double futon bed. Extra beds may be added to cater for families or groups.
All rooms have private balconies and are furnished with locally made items and decorated with East-African art
Rooms are basic but generally clean and comfortable. Be sure to be clear when booking how many adult beds are required as miscommunication can lead to ‘twin’ being misinterpreted.
The hotel does offer a good restaurant serving a variety of fresh local dishes including an array of seafood, meat dishes, salads and savoury pastries.
The menu mixes Swahili and Mediterranean flavours.
The hotel bar serves fresh juices, tea and beers all at a good price. Wine is available also, but in this region tends to be overpriced for the quality available.
