Just like at friend's place

Here, in Kiwengwa, on eastern coast of the island, far from the hassle of cities and resorts, we decided to build a small hotel. We wanted to be visited by friends, acquaintances and many new people. To make them feel free and relaxed. Just like at friends' place. Thus, the name MARAFIKI, which means FRIENDS in Swahili. We dreamed of creating an ideal place of holiday rest, far from civilisation, preserving African characteristics, in harmony with nature and local culture.

We welcomed our first guests in December 2016.

We'll make your dreams come true

The sun, the sound of waves, refreshing breeze from the ocean. Or maybe: the sun, birds chirping , the jungle of tropical flora. Whichever room you choose - overlooking the ocean or the garden, you will be delighted with the intensity of colors and the tranquility of Zanzibar.

Enjoy a culinary experience with us!

Food plays an important part in our culture and taste is one of senses enabling perception.  That is why we did our best to make our restaurant an invitation to the sensual travel deep into the richness of the island.
Working on the menu we were inspired by the traditional Zanzibar cuisine. We combined Zanzibar treasures: fish and seafood, tropical fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices with the specialities of western cuisine. The dishes are varied, fresh and healthy. They smell of spices. If you add the European aesthetics of display, this culinary  paradisemakes  eating a pleasure for all senses. Enjoy it!
