Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge Menu

Expansive ocean views and balmy sunsets invite guests to lose themselves in complete tranquility.
Located on the very edge of the Unguja Island where the Indian Ocean reaches the shore, Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge
is the most voguish property to grace Zanzibar’s west coast and the embodiment of a utopian beach escape.

The lodge is set on the west coast of Zanzibar, twelve kilometres north of Stone Town, and its bungalows are spread out over a 1.5-hectare area, allowing for excellent privacy. Palm trees embellish the grounds and magnificent, panoramic sea views can be soaked in from each unit,
a taste of perfection.

Health

There are several pharmacies, good doctors and hospitals in proximity to the lodge. In 2009, the World Health Organisation declared that malaria had been eradicated in Zanzibar. It is, however, recommended that guests pack in insect (particularly, mosquito) repellent and anti-itch or antihistamine cream. Visitors to Tanzania and Zanzibar are required to have a Yellow Fever vaccine and to present the certificate (or certificate of exemption from a medical professional) upon entering the country. It is further recommended that guests contact their local travel clinic for advice on the necessary precautionary measures for visits to this region.

Social Responsibility

Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge supports the nearby village, Meli Nane, with several projects. The lodge offers apprenticeships and training positions, promoting ecological awareness and educating fishermen. Additionally, it supports the dispensary and tries to ensure that the majority of its employees are locals. Chuini is also one of the few lodges in Zanzibar that offers medical aid insurance to its associates.

About Zanzibar

Zanzibar is an archipelago, situated off the coast of Tanzania in East Africa and surrounded by the warm Indian Ocean. It comprises a number of small islands and two larger ones, namely Unguja, also informally referred to as Zanzibar, and Pemba Island. Zanzibar is fondly referred to as the "Spice Islands" as the production of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper that takes place here.

This region, due to its proximity to the Equator, remains warm throughout the year and has equal days and nights which each last twelve hours. Exploring the islands and relaxing on Zanzibar’s white sand beaches can be enjoyed to the fullest extent as the archipelago enjoys abundant sunshine.

About Zanzibar, Tanzania

We spent 2 days relaxing and unwinding from mainland work and safaris, Rossana and team are amazing! World class service, excellent food and incredible views make this a 5-star resort. One of the best I've ever been too. Highly recommend if you're looking for a place that's close to Stone Town and has the privacy to escape. Don't be fooled by the road in. Once the gate opens, it's paradise!

We recently stayed at this beautiful resort; from our arrival till our checkout we were greeted with friendly management and staff. The manager was cheerful and very helpful in all aspects of our stay. The rooms and surrounding grounds are stunning and with a magical backdrop of ruins and the ocean gave this place a mystical feeling….

We are a family of 4, two older girls, so we booked 2 bungalows at this beautiful resort. From the moment we stepped on to the property we were personally greeted and welcomed by the Assistant Manager, Rossana. From that first moment the 8 day stay just continued to get better. When we thought wow this is amazing, the wow was outdone by a wow wow! The accommodation is first class, food delicious with personal attention to individual….
