Zanzibar Island Hotels: 82 reviews and 125 photos

Pakachi means border in local Jambiani / Paje dialect. This is the first location you come to when you arrive in Jambiani. It is owned by Mr. Saleh Hamza and has friendly staff. The bar and restaurant are built on a large coral rock and has a fantastic view of the beach and the Indian Ocean. You can drink and eat and really enjoy the natural beauty of Jambiani.

The beach really starts here and extends for 3 miles to the south.

The restaurant offers a wide range of freshly made food and everything on the menu is available, even during the rainy season. It is an excellent place to eat in the evening. The food is fresh, delicious and well priced. The bar is well stocked and the beer is served ice cold. Even if you do not stay here, have at least one meal here. It is a great experience.

Unique Qualities: The restaurant menu is fully available every day.

The hotel rooms are in gardens on the opposite side of the road.

Excursions and transfers can be arranged by the hotel.
