A Barefoot paradise!
As you step into Indigo Beach Zanzibar, you will immediately feel that your holidays have started.. Barefoot....This is how you will spend your holidays. Forget everything, free your mind and spirit! Relax in our cozy "boutique Hotel"!
The resort shows simplicity & informality. The turquoise of the lagoon melts into the background of an immaculate white sandy beach, planted with coconut palms close to the small fishing village of Bweju, near Paje Beach.
With its whitewashed walls, marine blue roofs and cozy bungalows, Indigo Beach Zanzibar, is full of coastline charm. The garden is planted with coconut palms and exotic trees rustled by the cool sea breeze. From the deck of the pool you'll find a direct view on the lagoon, that spreads its color less than 30m away.

Stayed here for seven night during Christmas time. The location is stunning and the hotel is beautiful. The booking and payment was easy via email. Margot was super nice and helpful and accommodated our special request. We had beach front villa which is nicely decorated. Bathroom outside was a nice feature and we liked it. The food in the hotel was excellent - always freshly cooked and nicely served. They also have a nice selection of South African and French wines. The staff at the restaurant is a special highlight. Mary, Gottfried, Agnes are wam and amazing people and they made our stay very cosy. We had birthday celebration and Musa organised a lobster and beautiful celebration for us - it was truly special. In terms of the beach - it’s a stunning long beach however the tides can be very low. If you plan on snorkelling it is uninteresting as there are no corals but just seaweed where you can see lots of urchins, some fish, crabs but not much else. For us the main down side was lack of aircon in the bedroom. For us - northern people it was quite hot at night. Otherwise we are incredibly happy about our stay and would highly recommend this place for peaceful and beautiful stay. …
I booked in this hotel for 6 nights! I hot to change my flight for urgent matter and go back to my home country after only spending 3 nights. They refused to give me my money back! Was almost 700$ i asked for discount of F&B she was more than rude to say no! They even rented the room for another customer before i leave and forced me to leave my room at 6pm after a bog fight with them. While my flight was at 12:00am Not only this! They didn’t clean our room in the check out date while i asked for this. They put the bottle of water infront of the door from outside and left!!! Overall this, after 6pm all the room will be full of ants and mosquitoes, lizard because all the windows are closed with bamboo, so it’s all open! Toilet is outside as well because they don’t want to pay for ventilation and exhaust! There is no AC for sure! The only benefit in this place was the beach and local people around! But definitely not the hotel or the small swimming pool. 3*7 meters maybe.…
I spent 2 nights here as a solo retreat. It was a perfect spot. The hotel is very well kept. Loved the decor of the place and the little details. My room was a walk across the beach, but as I was alone it wasn't too bad. I enjoyed the beautiful views in the morning. Food was good, although limited and portions were a quite small. WiFi connection was very poor in the room. Staff were excellent, especially Adis and Musa who looked after me very well. 😊 Note: The ocean is beautiful, although the tide can be very low sometimes and only reach waist height. Seaweed also grows here so expect that too.
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 made sure all our requests are fulfilled and have a nice stay. He was always there checking on guests and chatting to them, then he constantly checked the staff to make sure they are actually doing their jobs and was around if any troubles. At the same time a French lady Mary who checked us in was nowhere to be seen- as we arrived 12 oclock ( which she was aware of) and the rooms weren’t ready she promised to find us when we can check in, but she was no where to be seen after so we had to go an beg for our key 4 hrs later and were told room was ready ages ago. In overall that lady was nowhere to be seen the next 4 days so for me she wasn’t a manager but just random person appointed to be there. Th lack of customer service from these French staff while trying to make the booking or on check in made me feel really unwelcome and almost ruined my stay but thanks to Kombo it was all sorted and we really enjoyed it at the end. The hotel itself is a little gem, filled with mostly French guests but this wasn’t a problem for us. The pool was quite nice and you could stay there all day during low tide. The restaurant food and staff were very very good, surprised they knew both English and French which is a plus for a place like Tanzania. They were always smiling and sort of made you feel welcome. We had dinner almost every night there and find the food quite decent for the money paid. Indigo is also close to Paje so with $10 taxi return you could visit this part of the island as well. In overall I would recommend this place.…
Indigo is in the middle of Bweju village so you can see the locals doing their thing. You don't feel so isolated from the real people. Our bungalow was close to the beach and was wonderful waking up with the birds and wave sounds. Bed were big and firm. Staff so friendly and helped us with our many questions and requests. It's not high-end luxury but we didn't want that. And we didn't want to worry about how we looked and being beautiful people. Just normal holiday-goers like us. Located on the open ocean side of the island (south east), Indigo views are gorgeous. The hotel is a cosy boutique, with few rooms/bungalows painted vibrant white, sitting amid the most verdant garden. Seaside bungalows dearer but worth it. The staff were friendly, and the food offered variety with fusion approach; good drinks including decent beer. This is a well managed place. We arrived from Stonetown and then went to terrible Zanzibar airport and Indigo arranged transfers. Thanks for a great time.…
