Eco practices

Certified level 2 Responsible Tourism Tanzania.
Certified Travelife.
Fair Trade in Tourism 2019
We buy locally and employ locally - all our staff come from the small fishing village down the beach and have been trained in English and hotel work.
We support our community by building classrooms for the school, a junior school, and supply educational items.
We have a plastic free environment.


We have 4 double rooms and 3 family suites, and offer a casual but elegant space for groups to celebrate, unwind, or enjoy yoga and meditation.

The rooms are in 3 separate beach houses which can be reserved separately or all together.
Maximum numbers - 18 with families - 14 as adults.

We have 10 kms of sandy beaches to walk along, warm clean ocean with a barrier reef providing a calm lagoon - great for swimming in high tide, or exploring the rockpoolsin low tide. The sand is soft and white, and the beach is mostly almost deserted.

If you are lucky enough to be here during a full moon rise, you will have the experience of watching it come up out of the sea - is is a beautiful sight. Otherwise, for early risers - the sun comes up at 6.30 daily - get up to watch its beauty.

Temperatures are in the 20's and early 30s most of the year - with two rainy seasons in April - May and again a little in November. We have no a/c as all rooms are sea-facing with wide windows to capture the breeze.

An honesty bar and little plunge pool ensure you stay refreshed - and you can help yourselves to tea and coffee or drinking water all day.

We have responsible tourism credentials so we look after our environment and resources, respect the culture and only buy and employ from our local community.

Our food is fresh and can be designed to suit your tastes - seafood, vegetarian, vegan, or everything! Tropical fruit is bountiful and everything is fresh and healthy.

The large roof terrace of Dua House is where we do our yoga - and the top terrace above is where we can do meditation and star gazing
