From Ireland, likes to travel
Amazing place! Room is incredible, with a view right on the ocean. Very dreamy and romantic, amazing destination for couples. Staff took care of my every need....even jimmy the hotel dog! I felt very much at home. Beaches are quiet at Pongwe, so nobody that bothers you like the other beaches. Definitely will be returning.
My husband and I had a great stay at Seasons Lodge. The beach chalets our beautifully designed and a perfect balance between luxury and rustic. It is possible to swim when the tide is in, but there is a better swimming beach less than a km or so down. We took out a kayak from the lodge (free of charge) and kayaked to this beach. The food was good. Wifi was a bit spotty in our room.
The staff at Seasons Lodge were all extremely kind and professional.
The views from the room are breathtaking, as is the chance to see the random movement of the tide.
The pictures of the room capture the ambiance accurately, and the staff keep the area clean and tidy. The breakfast is decent and the chef on premise makes a fresh lunch and dinner (although the menu could do with more Zanzibar food). The mixologist behind the Bar Es Salaam makes wonderful rum based cocktails .
The manager and the front office staff are extremely helpful and always ready to give advice about where to go and how to get there.
Guest should notes that the villas are on a secluded part of the beach, which means that there are no beach boys and no hawkers. This also means that guests are limited in choice of food and drinks.
