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 dishes, 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…
Please have respect of the local culture!!!!
Chantal and staff made us feel very welcome. Simba was beautiful, peaceful and we enjoyed staying in a small and intimate setting as opposed to the many large resorts in the area.
The room was beautifully decorated and furnished with everything we needed for our stay.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly
Thanks for your review!
Usually we have all the things that are on the menu, but in this period there are a lot of wind and it is difficult for our fishermen supplier go to work!
Sometimes some stuff is missing on the island, then come back!
Greetings from znz!
We had a wonderful stay at Simba beach. The location is awesome, with rooms facing the sea, with several Italian resort hotels neighboring. They also have a restaurant with a good menu for lunch and dinner although orders take some time. There are a few activities you can do, e.g. snorkeling, surfing and fishing.
Loved the quiet, laid-back vibe of this place. Chantal and Marco were lovely hosts; I also enjoyed the company of the resident dogs :)
My room was spacious and comfortable and I loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves.
I thought the food, however, was a little overpriced and rather salty. If you're not a fan of sodium, just ask the kitchen to go easy on it. Also, I do recommend the lobster - it was delicious :)
Overall, the resort provides great value!

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...
