HODI HODI – simple, elegant Swahili style with a private, casual feel.

We welcome you to one of our three private boutique villas, each individually designed and offering a range of sleeping options for parties between six to eight people.

POA BEACH HOUSE

With a cool modern look, Poa Beach House is designed for flexibility and privacy. It can be occupied either by a party of six or eight, or as three separate rooms for individual bookings (with double or twin beds). Upstairs, the family suite sleeps four, has a private rooftop sun terrace as well as its own sunset lounge-bar. Downstairs, we have private double rooms stepping straight out onto Matemwe beach.

DUA BEACH HOUSE

Meaning ‘prayer’ or ‘blessing’, Dua Beach House is built in a colonial Arabic style, allowing the sea breezes to flow through spacious cool interiors. There are two sun terraces for power-tanning, one facing the moonrise and one the sunset. An interior sunken lounge is ideal for chilling, and inside private dining can be arranged. Book the entire Dua Zanzibar beach house for a private house party of up to six people, or for a family group of eight.

TOTO HOUSE

The third mini-villa has a ground-level family suite, with a double and 3 single beds. One single shares with the double bedroom, and there are two bunks in an adjacent room. Toto House is perfect for a family that needs their own space, sharing facilities with the other Hodi Hodi houses, whilst retaining privacy.

WE CARE ABOUT YOU ...
OTHER PEOPLE ... & THE PLANET:

It’s important to us that you enjoy your stay but we are also committed to ZANZIBAR – the place and its people. This means adhering to sustainable tourism standards and where possible, we:

  • Buy locally and reduce and recycle
  • Get our waste collected by donkey cart
  • Use water and power with care
  • Leave shells on the beach, and try to make a very light, bare footprint
  • Source our food from the islands
  • Employ our staff and suppliers from the nearby village of Kilima Juu
  • Encourage guests to bring supplies for our local primary school (this might be pens, hats or t-shirts)
  • Dress demurely in the village and towns, respecting local Muslim traditions
