Hodi Hodi Zanzibar

$ 160 Per adult per night

Hodi Hodi Zanzibar is a small lodge with 3 separate beach houses situated on Matemwe Beach on Zanzibar’s East coast. Its quality / price ration is good, making this an interesting option if you don’t want to spend more than necessary while enjoying a beautiful beach setting.

This is a relatively quiet area – a place to for relax in a tropical setting. Rooms or an entire house can be booked, either on a fully catered basis or with a meal plan as required. From Hodi Hodi, there is a range of the most common activities available at an extra cost. This is not a large resort, so don’t expect host of in-house restaurants, nightlife options and so on. There are options for eating out nearby and many people prefer to remain flexible when booking, taking one meal away – all depending on the day’s activities.

As with most of Zanzibar’s East Coast, the area is tidal with shallow (almost non-existant) water at low tide that allows you to walk out a long way. Plan your swimming around the high tide and spend time visiting or out on the water during low tide.

Hodi Hodi Zanzibar has 3 houses – Dua, Poa and Toto.

Dua House

Meaning ‘prayer’ or ‘blessing’, Dua House is built in a colonial Arabic style, allowing the sea breezes to flow through spacious cool interiors. There are two sun terraces for power-tanning – one facing the moonrise, and one the sunset.  You have an interior sunken lounge for watching films or chilling, and a well-equipped kitchen if you want to bring your own, or do some self-catering. Book the whole house for your private house party of up to six people, or for a family group of eight.

Poa House

With a cool modern look, Poa House is designed for flexibility and privacy. It can be occupied either by a party of six or eight people – or as three separate rooms for individual bookings – with double or twin beds. Upstairs, the family suite sleeps four, and has a private rooftop sun terrace as well as its own sunset lounge-bar.  Downstairs, we have private double rooms stepping straight out onto the beach.

Toto House

The third mini-villa has a ground-level family suite, with a double and 3 single beds.  One single shares with the double bedroom, and there are two bunks in an adjacent room.  Toto House is perfect for a family that needs their own space, sharing facilities with the other Hodi Hodi houses but .. a little private.
