We welcome you to one of our three private boutique villas, each individually designed and offering a range of sleeping options for parties of two to eighteen people.
The DUA house has the following setup:
- A family room upstairs with double and 2 single beds sharing the room.
- A double or twin upstairs
- A double or single downstairs.
The whole house is to be booked for 6 or 8 sharing. Includes lounge, dining, and terraces.
Meaning ‘prayer’ or ‘blessing’, Dua Beach 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. An interior sunken lounge is ideal for chilling, and inside private dining can be arranged. Book the entire Dua Zanzibar beach house for a private house party of up to six people, or for a family group of eight.
Your experience could include: Waking up to a dazzling pink sunrise coming over the Indian Ocean horizon, long leisurely lie-ins, fresh tropical fruit platters, walks along the beautiful beach – an hour to the north, or to the south, light healthy lunches, half-day boat trips watching for dolphins, an excursion to Stone Town for shopping and sightseeing, a ride to another beach for a change of scenery, poolside dinners of fresh seafood whilst gazing at the Southern Cross and Milky Way, the best night’s sleep with open windows and the sound of the waves on the distant reef and, if you are lucky – the magical full moon rise!
HODI HODI (“Hello! may I come in?” in Kiswahili) is a boutique-style owner-managed trio of beach houses. Built in a colonial Arabic style, set in tropical gardens, it is just footsteps away from the famed powder-white sands and palm-fringed shores of Matemwe beach, Zanzibar Island.
The decor is simple, our food is prepared using fresh ingredients, and the honesty bar by the plunge pool creates a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Our guests can beach-walk for hours, swim in our warm lagoon, or visit nearby Mnemba atol for diving and snorkelling.
HODI Hodi buys its supplies and employs its staff locally, looks after the community, protects the environment, and provides an authentic and sustainable experience, at a practical price. They are certified by Responsible Tourism Tanzania, www.rttz.org.
We have the perfect intimate setting for adventurous singles, cosy couples, happy families, friends celebrating, or private retreats.
