Pole Pole Resort (its name means ‘slowly, slowly’ in the Swahili language) has been hailed by the US Travel & Leisure magazine as one of the top 25 eco-lodges in the world.
Its seven spacious en-suite bungalows are set in tropical gardens and were built by local craftsmen entirely of local timber.

Raised on stilts, each unit has a private veranda with a Zanzibari bed for those essential afternoon siestas.
Indoors, the bedlinen has been imported from Italy, the bathrooms have double basins and the showers are king-sized.


Seven 'Luxury bungalows suites', elegant and spacious, are set among the coconut palms overlooking the bay. The rooms are furnished with carved and antique pieces. Twin and double beds are available and an extra bed can be provided. Two bungalows are ‘family’ type with two rooms separated by the bathroom and a small corridor for privacy. The large private verandahs are furnished with a Zanzibari bed, chairs, table and an armchair. Each bungalow is self-contained, the bathroom is spacious and comfortable. There are two ceiling fans, one on the verandah and one in the bedroom above the bed.
We are a low environmental impact resort with a state-of-the-art phyto-purification plant which is a special process of treating wastewater to prevent environmental pollution.


The cuisine is a combination of diverse culinary traditions and cultures, with an Italian style touch of class. Swahili dinners are served once a week or on request. The resort caters for special dietary requirements whenever possible. Most of the food we serve is organically grown and bought on the island to help fishermen and farmers benefit from tourism development.
