Welcome to Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge

Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge is nirvana on the tropical island of Unguja and the most vogueish property to grace Zanzibar’s west coast. This utopian beach escape delivers an unparalleled sense of exclusivity and comfort.

Chuini is an experience, a lifestyle and an awakening of the spirit. It exceeds tranquility, luxury and expectation. The ‘open-to-nature’ design provides that true essence to any stay. The 360-degree view of exquisite beauty coupled with world-class dining and private boat tours to sandbanks in the middle of the Indian Ocean, make Chuini the best the island has to offer.

Standing watch over the time-honored ruins, the opulent villas have been carefully positioned across a 1.5-hectare area for absolute privacy, rest, indulgence and well-being.

While the guests’ privacy is of highest priority, a full catering service is brought right to the doorsteps of these extraordinary villas making Chuini the perfect retreat for honeymooners. On request, wedding receptions and ceremonies can be arranged on the beach.

Stylish, yet laid-back… offering all of the modern conveniences, your time at Chuini is entirely customizable and exudes the global standard of luxury private island hideaways.

Hotel Activities

The spice island of Zanzibar, home to some of the best big game and deep-sea fishing opportunities in the Indian Ocean, is fortunate to have superb fishing almost year-round.

Join us for a day out Big Game Fishing in the waters. Our deep-sea fishing charter boat is rigged and ready to take you out for a fishing experience you will never forget!

When the North-East monsoon blows, the billfish arrive in great numbers. Striped, Black and Blue Marlin as well as the acrobatic and dazzling Sailfish and elusive Short Bill Spearfish abound in these crystal waters. Yellow fin tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, Barracuda, Kingfish (Trevally), King and Queen Mackerel and the lesser game fish such as Bonito tuna, Skipjack tuna and Rainbow Runner provide endless hours of adrenalin filled Game Fishing action out on the water.

Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge offers access to some of the most beautiful diving spots on the island of Zanzibar. Our partners, One Ocean and East African Diving will take you on an unforgettable experience. Both dive partners offer PADI dive courses and refresher courses.

One Ocean – The Zanzibar Dive Centre
One Ocean is one of the oldest and most reputable dive operations in Tanzania. Since 1993, thousands of tourists have been delighted by the snorkelling, dives and courses provided by our team.

In 1999 Gary Greig, an Australian, bought the company and since then it has expanded its operations on Zanzibar to include some of the best resorts and beach lodges on the island. It is now the biggest dive operator in East Africa.

We currently have the only dive centre in Stone Town, as well as four dive centres on the east coast in the Matemwe and Kiwengwa areas.

Zanzibar is distinguished as the “Spice Islands”. A visit to the famous spice farms, 3kms away from Chuini, is a must. The many other charms include Old Stone Town, Jozani Forrest, the endless beaches in the East and meeting the lazy Colobus monkeys.

Food & Dining

It takes just one look to understand that no pencil or brush could draw such beauty – only Mother Nature can reach such heights. We’ve simply added the love for cooking, courtesy, our professional skills and the passion to share all of this.

Simple, fresh, focused. Exceptional cuisine is prepared by talented chefs who use only local fresh ingredients, to keep the flavors faithful and original. The restaurant options present everything you’d want from an exotic island dining experience: a sensory-overload, white sands, coconut trees and dramatic views. Meals can also be enjoyed on any of the alfresco terraces or around the swimming pools.

Our menu’s boast local and international gastronomy, featuring traditional Italian focaccias and pizzas prepared using family recipes, to the freshest fish and seafood caught that very day.

Chuini’s most photogenic and scenic restaurant, Ocean Breeze, is perched on the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and awaits those who wish to enjoy fresh exquisite dining in a remarkable setting.

Dig your toes into the sandy floor of the palm fringed Blue Bay Grill & Pizzeria, which offers dreamy sights over the bay and excels in serving fresh seafood dishes – hot off the grill, prepared from the catch of the day. The pizzeria brings a dash of Italian flavor for those with an appetite for mouthwatering crispy pizzas, served hot from our beach wood-fired oven.

The historical sights of the Portuguese architectural remnants offer the most romantic dinner setting for our Swahili night guest experience. Take a seat between the ruins and the flickering light of the flame torches and journey your way through Swahili cuisine.
