About This Listing
Simba Beach is right on the beach with a very chilled and comfortable atmosphere!You feel like "home". The rooms are clean, simple equipped but very comfortable, you can see the sunrise and the ocean from your window!
Enjoy the real Zanzibar life!!
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 culture
Before arrival Chantal was very easy to communicate with and was prompt to answer any questions and make any necessary arrangements. Once there we were made to feel at home and the staff were very attentive. As for the place, the location is fantastic, with your door opening right on to the beach, it would be hard to have a better view. It's also easy to walk up or down the beach to nearby resorts if you wanted a change of scene. Would happily stay again and recommend to others.
Loved my stay here! Chantal & Marco were such great hosts. I had a busy few days in Zanzibar and it was great coming back to this resort. The prices in the restaurant are reasonable. The room was beautiful and it was great having dogs on the property. I felt safe and relaxed :)
I had such a relaxing stay at Simba and felt very well taken care of for the five days I was there. They would even check in on me to see what i wanted to order for meals.
The location is on a relatively quiet stretch of beach so it was possible to lay out on the loungers or swim in the sea without being bothered by the beach boys. Farther along the beach there are a number of vendor shops and a few hotels, a bar, kite/dive school, and at the far end is the local fishing village. Other than Swahili, the main language everyone speaks in this town is Italian! My Italian is very limited, so I got to practice my Swahili a little :)
I loved my little snorkel trip out to the reef with a local fisherman, coordinated by the resort for just $7.
I would definitely stay at Simba again!
Cannot thank Chantal and Marco enough for such a perfect holiday. The location is amazing, waking to sound of the waves and having comfortable loungers to enjoy the view and sun once awake. The meals were lovely and appropriately priced. Their staff are very kind and friendly, making staying here very hard to leave. Chantal is an excellent point of contact for booking day trips and suggestions. I highly recommend staying here and envy the next guests to Simba. Thank you very much!
Nous avons passé 5 nuits au Simba Beach, nous avons passé un séjour parfait ! L'endroit est super propre, bien rodé, la chambre très belle, l'espace devant le resort est fort agréablee pour profiter et s'adonner aux joies du farniente ! Le tout pour un prix vraiment très raisonnable ! Que demander de plus ?!
Pour compléter le tableau, le restaurant du Simba est lui aussi, pour des prix vraiment modiques, très bien et efficace ! Langoustes, crevettes, poulpe, mais aussi viandes : délicieux !
Je recommande vraiment cet endroit, idééal petits budgets, mais avec des prestations dignes d'endroits plus huppés.
Wow wow and wow ... What an amazing place to stay .... Could not fault it ...perfecto!!! Chantal and Marco were the perfect hosts and felt very much apart of the family !!
If I ever go back to zanzibar I will stay at Simba!! Grazie!!
Everything was just perfect at Chantal's & Marco's. The room is literally on the beach. Clean, hot water, nice restaurant and breakfast, super nice beach: everything is there to spend amazing holidays. Many "beach boys" though, but it seems to be the case on most places of Zanzibar. I definitely recommend this place!

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...
