Paje Beach Apartments gives you an authentic Zanzibar experience while still offering the western comforts we are used to. The resorts laid-back beachy vibe and seafront location make it the perfect spot to kick back and enjoy local life. Located in the heart of Paje town, guests can wander along the beach past the neighbouring resorts or walk through the windy streets behind to explore some of the local seafood restaurants.

The rooms are newly renovated and very spacious, with large en suite bathrooms, air con, refreshments, and a small terrace. The rooms are arranged around the small pool which is behind the bar and beachfront restaurant.

We ate at the restaurant several times, and enjoyed a local Swahili-themed meal, as well as a delicious crab dinner. Breakfasts offered a wide range of buffet pastries, cereals, fruits and meats, as well as eggs cooked to order.

The resort has an in-house dive center (Buccaneer Divers) that is well--run and used by several of the neighbouring hotels.
