Unguja Lodge

Top choice lodge in Kizimkazi
Image by Booking.com

Set in a patch of forest, this secluded luxury lodge has 10 villas with high thatched roofs and curved walls reminiscent of seashells. They're impeccably decorated and many have sea views (including from the shower). Add the private beach, infinity pool, dive centre and excellent restaurant, and it's easy to see why this place is regularly booked out.

There's also a larger three-bedroom house for families.
