Walk through the gate - wow!
Approaching the lodge I wondered where on earth I was going as it down a long track but when I walked through the gates it was WOW! The whole place faces the beautiful blue ocean. The view from my room was stunning and the choice of hammocks, swings and loungers just scream relax! Perfect place to chill out with reggae vibes and friendly, helpful staff

A piece of paradise at the end of the world that soothes the soul. The hotel is located on a cliff overlooking the sea. A spectacular spectacle of tides and stunning sunsets. A place with a lot of green, Spacious spaces and seating areas with meticulous decoration in the space. A special experience of living in nature in a bungalow with a balcony. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. Waking up in the morning with the birds chirping. Stunning bar, beautiful pool. Thank you to the lovely owner Shabi and all the lovely staff for a wonderful stay that will not be forgotten.

Tucked away in the quiet, relaxing south end of the Island of Zanzibar, Promised Land is a beautiful escape from reality. Whether you’re lounging in the plethora of furniture: swinging beds, hammocks, or beach beds, taking a swim in the salt water pool, playing a pickup game of volleyball, or sending the kayaks for a beautiful sunset cruise, Promised Land offers it all. The newly built and furnished bungalows are pristine. With beautiful mock wood floors, a comfy bed, and an out door-y bathroom and shower, you are sure to stay feeling dreamy. The staff members are exceptional. They help you set up any adventure you plan on taking but also do not pressure you into trying anything you don’t wish to partake in. Tending to your every needs, as a guest I felt like I could ask for anything and they would try to see it through. Lastly, the food, specifically dinner (because it is all we took part in) was 5 star. Courses were of the utmost savory and well presented. 5/5 for Promised Land.

What a treasure- clean, quiet, personable staff. Shout out to Mousa, Yumi, Rashi, and Ali for making my stay so memorable. Beautiful location away from the party life, and the restaurant food was great for every meal. Loved the breakfast. Highly recommend for those looking for a peaceful, clean hut on the beach
