There are a total of twelve spacious double storey villas at Unguja Lodge including two Family Houses. All villas are ensuite and equipped with a ceiling fan. The seven Seaview Villas and family rooms have a private stone terrace with sea views whilst the three Baobab Villas are orientated towards the garden. But there’s a sea view from the first floor and they also have the advantage of air-conditioning and private plunge pools.
The tropical garden is characterised by old mango and baobab trees in which the rare colobus monkeys can often be found. It’s a pleasant walk down to the beach and a there’s a swimming pool in the middle of the garden, great for chilling out and relaxing or for the first stages of dive training.
Activities at Unguja Lodge
Activities at Unguja Resort include snorkelling, dolphin encounters, diving and cultural visits to the nearby village of Kizimkazi. Diving and snorkelling tuition is provided by a PADI 5-star dive centre and caters for novices and the more experienced alike.
