Pongwe Bay Resort lies in Pongwe along the east coast of Zanzibar.

This small hotel, run by an Italian lady, is our second choice in Pongwe after Pongwe Beach Hotel. Compared to the latter the beach and the bay are less beautiful with coral outcrops that makes it advisable to use sea-shoes while the arrangement of rooms in larger buildings is less suited to the context on the other hand, according to feedbacks, food here is more tasty.

It consists of about twenty air-conditioned rooms divided into junior suites, master suites and executive suite. Junior suites and master suites are set on two-story blocks while executive rooms are individual bungalows. it is complemented by the restaurant, the bar and the pool. WiFi is available for free in all areas.

If you are divers Pongwe Bay Resort is not advisable. The reef is far away and it is better to stay in Matemwe along the north-east coast however it is possible to enjoy snorkeling boat trips.

Pongwe Bay Resort provides an average level of servicing and can be recommended to all travellers looking for a remote location.
