Our 37 room beach hotel is located at the South-East coast of Zanzibar in Makunduchi, which is an amazing coral village with white sand beaches that go down in gentle slope on a turquoise background. The location is great for the people love the natural and traditional Zanzibar village.
The 3 kilometer long white sand beach perfect for walking, running, relaxing, and exploring… It is ideal for family, for friends, and romantic couples. Not recommended for people who search an exiting night life.
The location is perfect not only for all sorts of beach activities, but also an excellent base to explore other activities like Stone Town (for shopping & history), Jozania Forest National Park and swimming with Dolphins.
La Madrugada is a unique and peaceful beachfront Resort. In the lounge area you will find a free wireless Internet zone which is also a perfect place to relax and enjoy some of our many boardgames.

All the rooms have view over the pool-area and to the ocean with seating outside to enjoy ”a night on the terrace”. The interiour of the rooms are all arranged in an effective Zanzibar style.
