About This Listing
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.
Please have respect for the local people and local culture.

Unbeatable beachside location! Perfect rooms and the restaurant serves very tasty food. Chantal & Marco are very good hosts and have created a relaxed atmosphere - it was a shame we could only stay for one week. Would recommend to anyone!
We had a really great time at Simba Beach! Chantal had arranged for a driver to pick us up in Stonetown, which was very convenient. We stayed for a few days and spent the majority of the time relaxing, playing with the kids and dogs that were around, and going for long walks. Breakfast was really great as were all of the meals that we had at the restaurant! Prices were slightly on the expensive end for food, but seemed to be comparable to other places nearby. Chantal easily arranged for us to go on a spice plantation tour, which was also a wonderful experience. Overall - a really great place to spend a beach vacation!
Great spot! To keep this brief: the location is outstanding. Walk out the front door of your bungalow and you are essentially on the beach. The location is quiet, which we wanted. Chantal and Marco were great... Helpful when requested, but never intruding. Their staff were great too. I'd recommend them to anyone seeking a quiet, beautiful spot on a fabulous beach. It literally does look just like the photo. And their dogs are great too!
After a challenging week climbing Kilimanjaro what a lovely way to relax... The hosts were very friendly and the local fish was really enjoyable looking out over the lovely sea view. No air con in the room but this was not needed with a lovely breeze cooling the room. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to relax on the edge of the beach
Nous avons passé trois jours super. Les chambres et les sanitaires sont très bien, la plage qui est juste devant la chambre est vraiment agréable. Le restaurant et le personnel est au top!!!!' On mange très bien. Vraiment rien a dire! Je conseil.

Simba Beach is a charming guest house right on Kiwengwa beach on the east coast of the island.
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 vissuta. Vi 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...
