Sunshine Hotel is located in the heart of Matemwe village, on the northeast coast of Zanzibar.

Sunshine is a simple hotel with a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere that suits people who enjoy the simplicity of a great beach and unpretentious hotel. It offers extremely good value compared to other hotels in its price bracket, and a relaxed, informal approach to beach life.

It is approximately one hour's drive from Stone Town and the airport.

It is a simple, no frills beach lodge that has gained a great reputation for good value and charming, friendly service.

With just 16 rooms, Sunshine is one of the smallest hotels we recommend on Zanzibar. The two Garden Rooms are the cheapest option, then there are 12 Sunshine Suites and finally, two special suites, the Blue Breeze Suite which has a private balcony, and the Honeymoon Suite which has its own small plunge pool.

The restaurant and pool area look out over the beautiful white sandy beach with the Indian Ocean beyond, and massages can be organised. 

Guests can be as active or as relaxed as they like. There are bikes for hire in order to explore the surroundings, as well as PADI courses and dives to Mnemba Atoll. Tours can also be arranged to Stone Town, Prison Island and Jozani Forest.

"Sunshine is a breath of fresh air from other similarly priced options on Zanzibar. Good service and a genuinely welcoming vibe put Sunshine as a contender in the 'value' price bracket."
