Simba Beach Zanzibar Ocean Resort#2

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Kiwengwa, Zanzibar North, Tanzania

The Space

SIMBA BEACH is an alternative way of being a tourist in this magic equatorial island.

Simba Beach is a charming guest house right on Kiwengwa beach on the east coast of the island. It is about 50 km from the airport and the capital Stone Town. It is easily reached with about 50 minutes to transfer on paved roads.
On request we provide also a transfer service from/ to the airport or from/to the harbor.

After years of experience in the hospitality business on the Spices Island, we decided to take it a step further and set up our own B&B.
Simba Beach consists of 8 rooms all facing the sea and situated right on the beach. Our rooms are all double and two of them are triple room.
All have four-poster bed with mosquito net, bedside tables, wardrobe open, table and chairs, ceiling fan, private bathroom and veranda. In addition, all rooms have tiled floors.
Simba Beach wants to be a structure ECO-Friendly, as the rooms are not air conditioned, but are naturally cooled by the sea breeze coming in through the glassless windows, which are obviously all protected by mosquito nets.
At the Simba Beach is also available the Restaurant, with à la carte menù, and the Bar, both with an amazing ocean view.

If you are not into travel lodges and want to experience the local culture, discover the real Zanzibar and its traditions, and if your idea of travel is to relax and explore at the same time, then this is the place for you.

In our family-run guest-house will make you feel at home and will personally take care of any aspect of your holiday.

ZANZIBAR is a wild, luscious island, full of exciting places to discover, a fascinating corner of Africa that hits you right in your heart, a place where you can still feel the magic legacy of the sultans’ kingdom, where different cultures and heritages meet and whose white sand beaches and sea tides mesmerising rhythm will enchant you…

Come and discover the pure and untouched beauty of Nature, the smile of its warm people, the fragrance of its spices and its breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.

  • Marco and Luigi and the whole family are doing a fabulous job in Kiwengwa, Zanzibar. You guys do have a dream location, that is for sure. Together with your flexibility and hospitality it is worth every second of a stay. We immediately fell in love with Simba, with the kids, with the dogs, with the sun and with Zanzibar. Did not know about a place down in Africa with such a bunch of Italians on one beach, but obviously you know how to live a life.
    We enjoyed our stay. Thank you very much.

  • Schöne, saubere Zimmer, gute Lage direkt am Strand und hinten raus das Dorf. Sehr nette einheimische Angestellte. Die Betreiber sind Italiener und das merkt man. Die Küche ist total langweilig und viel zu teuer. Aber davon abgesehen perfekt zum Relaxen. Unternehmungen kann man gut mit dem Inselbus bewältigen, wenn man mit den Belästigungen der "Zecken" zurechtkommt. Der Fahrpreis ist sehr günstig.
    Leider kann man bei Ebbe nicht schwimmen.

  • We stayed at Simba Beach for four nights and I can not recommend this place high enough. The house is located on a lonely beach strip where you won't be disturbed by anybody. The Marco, Luigi and the rest of the staff are super nice and were always helpful with giving hints and interesting ideas on what to do and with organising trips and tours, i.e. to Stone Town.
    The rooms are very clean and big enough with warm water in the shower and internet.
    In summary, we enjoyed every minute of our stay there and one day I will definitely come back :-)

  • We had a 'beyond' exceptional time at Simba Beach. We were booked to stay for 4 nights, but instead stayed our whole 11 days right there. If you are looking for a small, non-resort type vacation that includes exquisite beauty, local culture, clean environment, and a family run (email hidden)is is the place. Great food, too. We loved Hazaima and Ulfat, the adorable resident little girls who adopted us as their friends, the family dogs who walked with us and watched over us, the beautiful flowers placed on our bed each day, and of course the swimming, walking, sailing, beauty of the Indian Ocean. By far my best vacation. Chantalle and Marco, you are doing a great job. Keep it up.

  • Jambo!!!! Chantal, Marco and everybody at Simba Beach, are the NICEST people!! We had an amazing time there, loved the food - Chantal, your minestrone saved my life!!- the atmosphere, the lovely, lovely staff-our vacation couldn't have been better. And of course because of Zeus, Chapati and Bacco, the great dogs, our beach space was not "infested" with pseudo-massais who were only interested in selling us something. Don't get it wrong-the dogs wouldn't hurt anyone but they just had an impressive presence!! Simba beach is the perfect place to chill, read, stare at the sea- in short: the perfect space for Hakuna Matata. Mille Mille grazie, we'll be back!!!

About
KARIBU ZANZIBAR!!! WELCOME TO ZANZIBAR!!! We are a young couple, and have been living in Zanzibar for over 7 years, we know the local reality well and love the island and the people. After years of experience in the hospitality business on the Spices Island, we decided to take it a step further and set up our own B&B. This is not the usual commercial resort, we interact with the locals and try to participate to their life as much as possible, while providing our guests with all the comforts and facilities they would expect. If you are not travel into lodges and want to experience the local culture, discover the real Zanzibar and its traditions, and if your idea of travel is to relax and explore at the same time, then this is the place for you. In our family-run guest-house will make you feel at home and will personally take care of any aspect of your holiday. We speak Italian, Ensligh, Spanish and Swahili. We have three dogs and three local monkeys that we saved from a cruel destiny long time ago... The building has a security guard at night, so it's very safe! Simba Beach is a charming guest house right on Kiwengwa beach on the east coast of the island. Italiano: Marco ed io viviamo a Zanzibar da oltre 7 anni, e dopo una lunga esperienza nel turismo abbiamo deciso di proporre un modo diverso per trascorrere le proprie vacanze. Infatti, la nostra guest house si basa sull'idea di vivere a pieno il luogo che ci ospita e di conoscere in prima persona la realtà locale, ma soprattutto vuole essere un'alternativa al turismo di massa. Al Simba Beach conoscerete la Simba Family, e vi assicuro che vi sentirete come se foste a casa vostra, con la differenza che sarete cullati dal dolce suono delle onde del mare e guardando fuori dalla vostra camera rimarrete colpiti dalla magica atmosfera africana, dai colori dell'Oceano Indiano e dalla sabbia bianca e fine come farina... Oltre a noi, conoscerete i nostri collaboratori, ai quali siamo legati da anni di amicizia, le loro mogli e i loro bellissimi bambini, tutti sempre pronti a soddisfare ogni aspetto della vostra vacanza... Infine, ci sono anche Chapati, Zeus e Bacco, i nostri cani da guardia, da compagnia e da passeggio :) e le tre scimmiette Gigi, Sona e Roky!!! Viaggiare è un'esperienza unica, arricchisce l'anima e lascia dentro ognuno di noi ricordi indelebili. Africa. Una parola. Un continente. Mille emozioni e sensazioni tutte insieme che rimarranno sempre dentro il cuore di chi l'ha conosciuta e (website hidden) faremo scoprire la vera realtà di Zanzibar, perchè quest'isola particolare e magica non è fatta solo di spiagge e tramonti, ma soprattutto è la cultura cosmopolita che da secoli la caratterizza e che la rende tutt'oggi la Perla dell'Oceano Indiano! Per una viaggio fatto su misura per le esigenze di ognuno, Vi daremo tutti i consigli e le "dritte" per scoprire questo luogo cosi' lontano, ma così vicino ai nostri cuori...
