“Perfect Resort in the south of Zanzibar”

…Everything was just great, all facilities are as you expect from a 5 star resort.
Next to that the resort has a big restaurant where they serve excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner.
You really do not have to leave the resort.
…the service was perfect, staff extremely friendly and the owners Malaika and Roger
do everything to make your stay as perfect as possible.
We even had suits made by the tailor who works for the resort and the results were astonishing.
I can recommend this place to anyone who visits Zanzibar and will be most likely returning in the future.

“Wonderful experience, wonderful value”

… Ujamaa is absolute heaven, and is the perfect place if you want to slip away from the world for a while.
The bungalows are beautifully furnished, comfortable, and well-outfitted.
The pool/ lounging area is stunning, and the beach is quiet.

…Ujamaa’s restaurant is fantastic. The food – whether you’re eating seafood, Tanzanian food, or Western selections – is delicious…
Ujamaa is a good option for families, as the property can organize day trips and has plenty of on-site entertainment options (ping pong table, trampoline, toys, etc.) 
We also loved the hotel and restaurant staff. Friendly, helpful, and thoughtful, they were willing and able to assist us with anything we might ask. Very professional. 
…In all honestly, it’s one of my favorite places I’ve stayed in my entire life.
I can’t recommend it enough.
Thank you so much Ujamaa, we hope to return!

“Hidden paradise”

…The staff is very friendly, heartwarming, with a personal and genuine approach.
The place is linked to an Italian NGO and community project, very eco-friendly and sustainable.
They all did their best to make our stay special.
The atmosphere is very relaxing, good energy, with many places to find peace in a shadow in a hammock.
The food was fresh and excellent, so were their cocktails! All food local and made from scratch.
Also the furnitures were rustique and locally crafted from old boats, the room was yet modern in their facilites …
… Ujamaa is an excellent alternative to the touristy and unpersonal all-inclusives up north.
Ujamaa has very few rooms which offers an exclusive feeling and relaxing atmosphere.
We would recommend this place to all! Both couples, friends and families:)

“Perfect paradise”

We were there for 7 nights and every day we felt like paradise.
The staff and especially Malaika were amazing, very friendly and very helpful.
They even organized massages in the little spa while watching the sunset.
The seafood was fantastic and the cocktails amazing and everytime with fresh fruits and a lot of love!
…We were really sad about leaving cause it was just perfect!!!
And the bungalows are with so much love and nice amenities, just pretty nice and lovely.
The beach is beautiful and clean and you don’t get annoyed by any local guides.
… A Special thank to Malaika &Roger, Ash, Faby, sijali, Edi and the whole rest of the Paradise!!!
It was amazing and sooooo wonderful!!



“Fantastic place to stay”

Great bungalows, super friendly staff, food is very good too.
The beach in front of the hotel is unbelievably beautiful and still wild, with nearly nobody except fisherman.
The hotel steered by Malaika is linked to a charity project in the region.
Malaika, thank you for your warm welcome !
I strongly recommend this place.

“some days in paradise”

…Ujamaa Beach Resort made us feel being in paradise.
Our bungalow was amazing, very clean and lovingly furnished. 
Malaika and Roger and the whole staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful. 
There was always somebody who had time to talk with us, to teach us Swahili or to give us information about the country. 
The meals were varied and always fresh.
We enjoyed our stay and hope to come back!

“Amazing little gem”

The bungalows are amazing and exceptionally well turned out,
the staff are incredibly friendly and the owners were great and very helpful.
If you’re looking to get away from the world for a while, you couldn’t do better.



“Fantastic place to stay”

…the pool and beach side are great and it is a very relaxing atmosphere…
…highly recommendable is the culture tour through the village of Makunduchi to give you an idea of the local life and to get the awesome view from the top of the lighthouse.
The are is sort of off the beaten track within Zanzibar which makes it very appealing to explore
and the resort is very new and supports school and development projects as it is run by an Italian NGO.
