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.

  • It is a great place to be! The Resort is 45 min away from Stone Town, that is why u have a very chilled and comfortable atmosphere there. The staff is very friendly and helpful and u feel like "home". The rooms are clean, simple equipped, but u could c see the sunrise from our window;)
    We were 6 girls escaping for 5 days from the hectic life in Dubai and we just loved the place;) we chilled at the beach, had a nice tour to the rain forest and a boatrip and we were so pleased with everything. It was a fantastic trip and we will never forget it. Thanks Luigi, Hassan and all the other great ppl who made our journey so unique!
    P. S. We love and miss u very much Bofanti

  • Simba beach resort was incredibly beautiful. Chantal and Marco are lovely people and we had a great time. The food was very nice italian cuisine and Rozhaima and Olfatti are the cutest kids I have ever seen. The room was clean and charming too. Highly recommend it. Much nicer (and cheaper) than the all-inclusive places.

  • Cozy, beautiful room on a breathtakingly gorgeous beach, with friendly and generous hosts. Plus a fabulous little restaurant and three sweet, playful dogs. Perfect beach vacay, I wish it had been longer than just two days. Next time, it will be!

  • Simba Beach was a fantastic find! Set on a beautiful white sand beach, the apartments are very clean and very nicely decorated. We loved the fresh fish served and Chantal was really helpful when arranging trips (recommend a visit to the Restaurant on the Rock and a massage in the next hotel up which was great!). Would not hesitate to recommend Simba Beach

  • Simba Beach was even more beautiful than we could dream of! Quiet, cozy, beautiful beach, and the most important were the people :)
    Chantal and Marco are excellent hosts, they and others in the house created such a wonderful atmosphere, so from the first to the last minute we felt like family.
    We are perfectly relaxed after a busy trip.
    Thanks again, and hope to see you again:)
    Give my regards to Andre, Maulid, Salima and dogs!

  • Place is great with wonderful people. A perfect place with a very nice location around 45 min from Stone town. Rooms are nice and cozy with clean bathroom and always been taken care of.

    Food is something you need to try especially Swahili food made by the incredible Italian cook Andrea.

    People are extremely friendly and willing to assist at any time.

    We really enjoyed our time there and definitely will go back.

    We highly recommend Simba for lovers or group of friends who are willing to spend some quality time around beautiful nature and people.

    Thanks Chantal, Marco, Andrea and Mawo, you really made our holidays

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...
