Unguja embodies what Zanzibar is all about: relaxed, traditional, friendly and charming.

Owners, designers, hosts and all round fabulous people, Ralph and Elies have created a magnificent environment to enjoy Zanzibar at its natural best. As Ralph and Elsie relocated their family to Zanzibar,

Unguja Lodge is also a family home and has a heartbeat so intimately linked with its natural environment that you cannot help but feel part of this wonderful space. The canvas that has been so richly enhanced combined with the fabulous hosting from all the staff, offers guests a unique experience not only to Zanzibar, but to the world.

The villas and public areas are nestled amongst vast, ancient Baobab trees, luscious scrub-land and coral rocks, providing homes to an array of wildlife. The villas themselves are huge and offer all guests separate lounges and traditional Zanzibari day beds under Makuti domes, perfect for siestas and drinking in the wonderful elevated views out to the ocean. Their team have amongst them the best chefs and lodge management on the Island. We can’t sing this lodges praises highly enough.

Unguja is the perfect place to get away from it all. Organically inspired villas provide loads of space and you’re in the perfect place for Dolphin spotting and a wide choice of snorkel and scuba diving sites. Ralph and Elise are lovely and will definitely make your stay one to remember.
