The Samaki Lodge is a new, small-scale boutique hotel, well appreciated for its fabulous relaxed atmosphere. Perched on the beautiful beach of Uroa on the east coast of Zanzibar, 35 km from the international airport, the hotel is intimately composed of thirty rooms. The furnishing, though elegant, maintains the style and charm of yesteryear Zanzibar. The structure offers a swimming pool area surrounded by a garden. Here, you can unwind–immersed in a display of exotic, colorful flowers. Enjoy refreshments from the poolside bar and restaurant. The hotel is just footsteps away from a private white sand beach, ideal for getting the perfect tan, or just relaxing in the warm African sunlight stretched out on handcrafted beach chairs under Zanzibari beach umbrellas. The main restaurant offers either a buffet or à la carte service, with choices of both traditional Swahili and Italian dishes. At every meal, a wide selection of meat, catch-of-the-day fish and vegetarian options. A sampling of delectable homestyle desserts and exotic, fresh local fruit is always available. Special romantic dinners can be arranged at poolside. Located just above the main restaurant is the lounge zone. In this cozy area, invite yourself to gaze out over the Indian Ocean and the coral reef.
