Each bungalow has a spacious bedroom and lounge area with comfortable, contemporary furniture. A butler service is also available to guests who stay in the Premium Bungalows. The Villa has two bedrooms with king size beds and en-suite bathrooms. There is a studio on the first floor where you can enjoy a view over the bay and Stone Town.

In addition to the Chuini restaurant there is the Blue Bay Grill Restaurant and Pizzeria, and Ocean Breeze Restaurant overlooking the Indian Ocean. For an extra special dining experience, the Swahili Night invites guests to enjoy a romantic dinner in amongst the ruins.

Relaxation is the name of the game at Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge, but there a variety of activities on offer: enjoy a spa treatment with a backdrop of beach and ruins; watch the stars come out from the stargazing platform or take part in a yoga classes or private yoga lessons (available on request).
