    Nice hotel with bad management”

    We stayed in Indigo beach as a last stop of our 14 days trip to Zanzibar. Originally we had some issue with the booking and the room as well, the French management wasn’t that open to communicate with us and were really short on their emails and even sort of rude when reply to us saying in one of their emails just the following : If you are looking for budget room, we do not have enough room to suit your party on the requested date. Margot (BTW we never asked for a budget room, just requested for price for 2 rooms for certain period with dinner) At the end I was quite reserve in booking this place because of the bad communication with the booking team, however we really liked the place and decided not to deal with them directly but to book through Online booking site Agoda. On arrival we had some trouble with the room but that was quickly and efficiently sorted by the Tanzanian manager Kombo ( hope to have the name right) who was ever so kind from day 1 to the rest of the stay and

    Amani na upendo”

    Indigo beach is, hands down, the most beautiful hotel in the area. As two young women we felt very safe and welcome in the town of Bwejuu. The staff took excellent care of us and were extremely kind and friendly. Everyday, different dinner options were offered. Main course, alone, was enough to satisfy our hunger. If we wanted to be around more people, staff at reception were more than happy to arrange a cab to visit Paje, the neighbouring town. Yoga, cafe's, restaurants, parties, etc. were just a 10 minute ride away. Lastly, the hotel offered many great excursions. This hotel is suitable for couples, families (young and mature children), friends and solo vacations. It's a true haven of love and peace.

    Great value and wonderful vibe ”

    We stayed in room #1 and it was beautiful in a very relaxed and simple way. It’s a great vibe to stay here and you feel close to nature, in more ways than one as the toilet and shower are outside so it’s an amazing feeling but also means dealing with ants or rain. It’s really not a big deal though, we had a great time there. Unfortunately the beach does have seaweed and is not as sparkling aqua as paje but that’s a quick fix with $10 round trip fare and 10 mins time. The bed definitely needs to be upgraded as that was the only uncomfortable thing. Only other issue was WiFi didn’t reach our room, only available in lobby or restaurant but also not a big deal. The chef is amazing, every single meal was delicious. We were very happy in our stay here.

    Nice place to stay with friendl staff”

    We were unfortunate with the weather but all by all a nice hotel. The GM let us check out a few hours later so we wouldn’t be waiting with our luggage. Very friendly staff and good restaurant. Location was remote very close to local community. Hotel is right at the beach but because of the ties we couldn’t swim in it.

    We stayed at the Indigo Beach resort for 5 days and enjoyed every minute of it. The Manager and staff have made sure our stay was comfortble, and all requests taken care of. The place is in vicinity of The famouse Rock restaurant as well as Paje beach. Taxis are easly arrnaged by the hotel as well as all tourist attractions. We would highly recomend this place to everyone, especialy to people with kids .

    de l'épuré au dépouillé”

    Le style de l'hôtel se veut "épuré" mais trop "cheap" pour être "chic". Pas de déco, chambre aux murs blancs, douche extérieure moussue, lavabo non scellé, robinets sales, pommeau de douche bouché. Lit très dur et pas assez de sur matelas pour toutes les chambres… Chaises longues dures, matelas de plage trop fins. Piscine trop petite pour toutes les chambres, car la mer est souvent basse et pas accessible (vase et oursins) Le prix est beaucoup trop élevé pour le confort fourni: jouer les robinsons, pourquoi pas mais à la moitié du prix payé. Personnel très sympa, gérante française très gentille et à l'écoute mais ne peut pas faire des miracles! Nous sommes très déçus

    Séjour très agréable”

    Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à l'Indigo. C'est l'endroit où le petit déjeuner a été le meilleur (buffet très varié en salé, sucré et douceurs en tout genre), vraiment très très bon. Le personnel était super sympa (à Zanzibar ils sont tous sympas bien sûr, mais là encore plus qu'ailleurs), le lieu très bien tenu, très soigné, les administrateurs n'hésitaient pas à se mettre en 4 à la moindre demande (location de vélos, cours de bao…), vraiment top et bienveillant. Le seul bémol est que nous étions dans une chambre de la catégorie "standard" qui du coup était un peu petite et dont la salle de bains tenait plus du placard que d'une salle de bains. Ce point négatif a été largement compensé par tous les points positifs et a permis de classer notre séjour dans l'album des bons souvenirs

    Bei meinem nächsten Besuch werde ich einen Beach-Bungalow buchen. Die Standard-Gartenzimmer sind zumindest im Untergeschoss nicht gut durchlüftet. Das Frühstück war phantastisch, jeden Tag auch verschiedene lokale Snacks dabei. Das Managerteam und auch das Personal ist immer freundlich und überaus hilfsbereit. Die Lage am ziemlich naturbelassenen Strand ist einmalig, Ebbe und Flut anzusehen jedes Mal aufs Neue ein Erlebnis.

    Das Indigo Beach Hotel ist ein kleines für Erholung und vor allem Ruhe. Es wird einem jeder Wunsch erfüllt, wenn es möglich ist. Management sind Franzosen die sehr engagiert, hilfsbereit sind. Die Standartzimmer sind sehr einfach. Bungalows geräumiger aber der Preisunterschied sehr hoch. Das Essen ist sehr gut, Abends drei Menüs, eines mit Fleisch, eines mit Meeresfrüchten, eines Vegetarisch. Das gesamte Personal ist seh sehr gut. Fazit: Wer einen ruhigen erholsamen Urlaub wünscht, der ist da genau richtig. Prei Leistung voll in Ordnung.
