We stayed 5 nights at Raha and loved every moment. It's really less of a lodge/hotel and more of a beautiful, private house that feels quiet, secluded and luxurious, even when fully booked (only 4 rooms). It would be a great spot for a group to rent out. We biked the full stretch of Jambiani to Paje several times and...

Raha Lodge is the right place for an unforgettable holiday. The villa is set on a white sandy beach just in front of the ocean. The part of the villa we enjoyed more was definetely the veranda: on the top of the house we used to have breakfast there every morning or we just sat there relaxing and admiring the...

We rented out Raha Lodge for 4 nights in April, and I really wouldn't recommend this place. Positives -- the house is beautiful, new, and has a lot of potential. It is set in a small village, right on the beach. The rooms are well equipped and the bathrooms nice. Adam, the cook, cooked up some incredible Zanzibari dishes (lots...
