Where to stay in Paje

Given Paje's location on a secluded lagoon, literally all of its accommodations lie along the shoreline. Here, choose from a good set of well-equipped four-star hotels offering peace and quiet in the meditative ocean ambience. If you want to experience the city bustle, book a room in one of the hotels in Zanzibar Town. It takes about 30-40 minutes to get to Paje from there, but the taxi fare or minibus ticket doesn't cost much. Alternatively, check out the numerous rental bungalows, including breakfast and your own private outdoor space.
