We LOVED our few days at Upepo on the gorgeous island of Zanzibar. Here are the reasons: 1. It's remote and very quiet. A real getaway! You won't see or hear many other people. 2. The food was fresh and lovely. Fish, fruit, amazing lobster! 3. The service was above and beyond what we expected. The manager Mohammed (and his...

The bungalow I stayed in was perfect. It's just what I was hoping for. Surrounded by windows and full of fresh ocean air. You'll only hear the rustle of palm fronds and waves crashing as you fall asleep. Bwejuu was quite when I visited, but it made for the ideal Zanzibar experience. I can't recommend it enough. Here are details...

This is absolutely one of the best places we've ever stayed hands-down. A review could not even do this place justice. Pictures can not do it justice. Now, if you like fancy all-inclusive resorts, then do not stay here. If you like hidden gems, local flavor, peaceful, the real Zanzibar experience, then this is for you. This is a true...

The only problem with Upepo was that I didn't arrive 3 days earlier. I had decamped from Kendwa which had really not been my dream of a quiet Zanzibar paradise. Upepo and Bwejuu were exactly that. I was lucky enough to get the above ground floor room at Upepo (there are only four rooms) which has a big balcony facing...

My sister and I stayed at Upepo during our staying in Zanzibar and were instantly in love with this magical spot. The lovely tropical gardens, the white sands of the beach, the OUTSTANDING food (seriously, I've never eaten so well), and the fantastic staff all made this the trip of a lifetime. Our hosts, Fatma and Shareef were attentive, warm,...

I was completely in love with this hotel. Really beautifully done rooms, right on the beach if you request, wonderful hammocks to lie in, yoga mats to use or lie on, gorgeous sunrises, great beach to walk or bike on at low tide. The staff are incredibly attentive, friendly, and helpful - they can take care of anything you need,...

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a 10 day stay at Upepo near Bwejuu and had an amazing time there. It was the perfect holiday. We loved it and are officially in love with Zanzibar, Bwejuu and everyone at Upepo!! The owners, Shareef and Fatma, are lovely genuine people who are there if you need them but also...

My girlfriend and I came here for a week of relaxing and to escape the winter and we could not have had a more perfect time.

Even though I have traveled a lot (have also been to Zanzibar before) I normally don't write reviews - but this experience I simply feel compelled to write about, since it was really unpleasant. But to be fair, first the good things about Upepo: secluded location (note that the water gets more beautiful and clear and less full of sea...

We thank you for your feedback and always take into account both the good and bad to make our place better for our guests. We do have some comments to address to these guests as they seem to feel that they did not receive what that had expected. Their first comments state that we had got their booking “wrong” –...
