The makuti thatched roof restaurant, with its sea views, specialises in authentic Swahili meals using traditional cooking methods and ingredients. The ‘Under the Palms’ bar is an ideal place to enjoy a fresh fruit juice or even an exotic cocktail or glass of champagne.
For swimming, there is either the hotel’s sea facing swimming pool or the crystal clear waters of the sea. As Mchanga Beach Lodge is situated at sea level and not on the coral reef, the sea here is ideal for swimming. For those who prefer sun bathing, there are many comfortable beds set amongst the hotels grounds for relaxing in as well as 3 charming beach Bandas nestled in the dunes offering shade, sea breezes and views of Mnemba Island and the outer edges of Zanzibar’s coral reef. For the more energetic, there is a boule court and a semi-enclosed games room. It is also possible to arrange diving and general water sports locally as well as spice island tours and sailing trips.
