We think Green and Blue offers good value compared to its competition. Not only does it have a great location opposite Mnemba Island giving it easy access to some fabulous diving, but it has an extremely good reputation for both its service and its food.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Green and Blue Ocean Lodge sits in a lush garden beside the Indian Ocean in the middle of Matemwe village in Zanzibar.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Its design is traditional with open white brickwork covered by thatch roofs made of dried palm leaves. The accommodation is Zanzibarian in style, with open walls to allow the soft ocean breezes to waft through. Each bungalow is extremely comfortable and has an outdoor shower and plunge pool where guests can relax.
The food is particularly good, with an emphasis on local seafood, exotic fruits and island spices. Service is friendly and impeccable.
The communal areas are impressive, with an excellent restaurant and no less than three swimming pools and a spa. Although there is little to do at the lodge apart from swimming and relaxing, fantastic snorkelling and diving are less than 20 minutes away, while outings can be arranged to Stone Town, spice farms etc.
