A place for real travelers, The Island Pongwe Lodge is a natural wonder and ideal choice for those seeking an escape from the chaos of everyday modern life. The Island welcomes those looking for an unconventional barefoot luxury experience and natural eco journey on a small private island located few hundred meters form the main coast. Lose yourself between the green of the lush garden Island and the blue of the Indian Ocean. A dream come true, The Island Pongwe Lodge, located in the North-East coast of Zanzibar just 34 km from Stone Town, is an eco-boutique hotel built on a real coral island with a shoreline and landscape that is ever changing based on the movement of the Ocean tides.
The Island offers 4 Standard Villas and 1 Luxury Sultan Villa, all facing the ocean. Each room is hidden in the shadow of the trees and has its own veranda with a romantic seating outside to enjoy sunset, sunrise, and the Zanzibar starry sky. All rooms are eco-friendly with no television or music from electronic devices allowed, wi-fi is available only in common areas. Everything is thought to be nature oriented to help guest to fully disconnect and regenerate their spirit in harmony with nature. The Island is the perfect choice for those seeking unreplaceable memories and experiences in one of the most exclusive location in Zanzibar.
Experience life in harmony with the tide. Located on the east coast of Zanzibar with a shallow gradient towards the sea, The Island Pongwe Lodge is subject to large tidal differences between high and low tide. A current tide chart is kept at Reception so guests can see when high and low tide will be during the day and what are the best times for swimming. The cycle of high and low tide creates a magical atmosphere. Depending on tide phases you will either need a canoe to reach the coast or simply walk out across the expanse across the exposed beach in front of the Island. This is a kind of throwback to old and primitive sensations that guests can experience.
