The Lodge

Our guesthouse “Blue Reef Sport & Fishing Lodge” is situated directly at the stunning white sandy beach in the village of Jambiani.
It is a small and cosy guesthouse with only 8 rooms.
Our garden is shady surrounded by palmtrees and offers an amazing view at the crystal clear turquoise water from the Indian ocean.

Jambiani is a small authentic fishing village on the south east coast of Zanzibar and far away from the mass-tourism and big resorts in the north.
It’s only 55 km away from the capital Stone Town and the airport.
We are integrated into the village, so this means you will also experience the local life on the island.
During the day children will play at the beach, villagers are fishing or maintaining their boat and during low tide women are collecting seaweed.

If you book via we offer you a pick up and drop from/to airport for $80!

What do guests say about Blue Reef?

“Blue Reef is an amazing place to stay on Zanzibar! The rooms are really nice and tidy, the food (and drinks!) is very good. Delicious pancakes for breakfast everyday. The staff is also really kind and helpful if you need anything, but also just for a chat. The place has a fantastic atmosphere and the beach in Jambiani is very beautiful. We stayed two nights longer because it is such a nice place. Definitely coming back!”

“After hours of surfing on the internet looking for a nice place on the east coast of Zanzibar for our family holiday, I stumbled upon Blue Reef Sport & Fishing Lodge. We stayed there for four days and absolutely loved the relaxed atmosphere, good food, friendly staff, very approachable management, and wonderful activities. The team spirit and local linkages with the community is very noticeable and added to our enjoyment. My son brought home an 11 kg wahoo from our fishing trip, which we devoured in the evening. In terms of value for money, it doesn’t get any better! We know where we are going next time! Blue Reef is our kind of place.”

“11 nights of fantastic hospitality at Blue Reef. Very decent facilities, hygienic and superb catering plus extremely friendly and reliable staff. The location is perfect for those who like kite surfing, surfing, fishing, snorkeling amongst other activities. They have 2 locations within 150 meters of each other – the one with a large bar area and quite a buzz in the evening with the enigmatic and very friendly bar staff. The other offers a more low key, tranquil experience and they serve up the best stone oven pizza I have had since Italy! Really a very well organized and maintained resort”.
