A room high up on stilts, under a traditional Makuti roof and right on Kendwa Beach in front of Zanzibar Parasailing Clubhouse with great views over the Kendwa bay. The beautiful sunset views are an added bonus!

The space
It is the one and only room which has such a unique view.
It is an open air room with coconut wooden walls to protect your privacy. The front side is open which looks directly to the Indian Ocean and the amazing Kendwa Beach. It is certainly different to the norm.

Guest access
The room is accessible 24 hrs. The room is part of a watersports centre which has a bar and kitchen facilities and has security at night.

Other things to note
Please note that the room is above and in front of a Watersports & Diving Centre, which is active during the day, starting around 08:30am.

The room is very close to the ocean where the local fishermen wake up early and start their day, not always quietly.

There is a double bed, sofa, table and locker in the room. Other facilities are in the common area of the clubhouse. The bathroom is the communal facilities used by clients of the watersports centre (no hot water but this is tropical, so not essential, lol) and is situated towards the back of the clubhouse, away from the room.
