Hodi Hodi Boutique Beach Houses

The HODI HODI Beach Houses are on the beach in Kilima Juu village, near Matemwe. All have sea views, as do the restaurant, bar and pool.

Their philosophy is about responsible tourism and providing an authentic and sustainable experience. Hodi Hodi buy locally and reduce and recycle. Waste is collected by donkey cart.
Water and power is used with care. Shells are left on the beach; the aim is to make a very light, bare footprint. At Hodi Hodi, food has inspirations from Spain, India and the Middle East, but is all sourced from the islands, and set in a pallet of Zanzibari spices.
All staff and suppliers are from the nearby village of Kilima Juu and the small primary school receives learning gifts from guests.
Staff and guests dress demurely in the village and towns in respect of the local Muslim traditions.
