An intimate beach villa, nestled amongst local culture, in the small town of ‘Bububu’, 10km north of Stone Town. The airport and port are both situated by Stone Town only a 15-minute drive from the villa.

In a beautiful tropical garden with a private beach the boutique hotel with seven distinctive rooms offers exotic comforts, from sleeping on four-poster antique beds to eating at traditional Moorish low tables in the restaurant. This is a place to enjoy nature’s beauty and simplicity. There are no TVs and no swimming pool but the Indian Ocean is a warm 27 degrees and just a few steps from your bedroom door.

Every room has private en-suite shower rooms with good, hot showers and air conditioning, ensuring guests can enjoy these essential modern comforts. There are no adjacent hotels, few electric lights along the beach mean that, at night, the view of the stars is amazing.

The restaurant has been designed respecting traditional Moorish style, with low tables made out of coconut wood and decorated with veils and colourful cushions. Try some unique Island dishes: barracuda carpaccio, kingfish ravioli, or octopus stewed in coconut sauce.

An outdoor grill can be arranged any night, upon request, and can prepare a large African feast if ordered in advance. Every morning breakfast includes fresh fruit straight from the garden: it's always the right season for papayas and mangos!

The tree house bar overlooking the Zanzibar channel offers exquisite original cocktails, made with fresh local fruits, herbs and spices. A variety of classics with a local genuine touch. A choice of good South African wines, and various Premium spirits are available.

Large beach umbrellas and chaise lounges allow you to sunbathe in comfort and provide an ideal spot to have a drink while admiring a magnificent view of the ocean, you can swim at any time. Walking along the beach, you may notice Island women in their colourful kangas gathering shellfish, or young Africans practicing yoga.
