About PONGWE ZANZIBAR
Located in Zanzibar, on Pongwe Beach, one of the most beautiful coastlines in Tanzania.
Surrounded by lush gardens, where bougainvillea, frangipani, croton and banana trees provide a verdant backdrop to the rooms with a view of the clear waters of the Indian Ocean. The Pongwe Bay Resort is an exclusive oasis of peace and tranquility, with an intimate ambiance that is truly in contact with its uncontaminated natural environment. We’ve done everything to make our idea of paradise on earth a realistic experience, in order to be able to share it with you.
We’re proud to serve you and render your experience truly unique.
The resort is around forty minutes by car from Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar, declared a Unesco World Heritage Site, a place that is truly magical, where different cultures mix; African, Arabic and western, embellished by historical buildings such as the Old Dispensary and House of Wonders.
The atmosphere is even more magical at sunset, when, as the call of the Muezzin can be heard, preparations get under way for the fascinating evening gathering at the Forodhani Gardens, the gardens overlooking the sea built by the Sultan. Dozens of small kiosks are set up in terraces overlooking the sea, and an extraordinary show of local cuisine is staged amongst the motley crowd gathered for an evening chat, immersed in the scents and flavors of spicy Swahili cuisine.
