Joop and Yudee, an entrepreneurial Dutch-Nigerian couple, are the heart and soul of the View of Zanzibar. What started as a work assignment for Joop in Nigeria led to a romantic partnership with Yudee, and subsequently, to the shared dream of a unique beach hotel. Their journey led them to Zanzibar, an island they fell in love with and decided to call home, far from the unrest of Nigeria.
An unforgettable paradise view
Perched on the idyllic Pingwe Beach, the View of Zanzibar is more than just a beach hotel. Its charm lies in the constantly evolving backdrop it offers to its guests. Be it the powdery white sands, the mesmerizing turquoise ocean, or the sublime sunrise, each day unfolds a new scene. Overlooking the famed Rock Restaurant in Michamvi and the vast Indian Ocean, the hotel guarantees a front-row seat to the best views on the island.
A homely hospitality experience
Designed as a beach home for vacationers and remote workers alike, the hotel consists of one penthouse, where Joop and Yudee reside, and six double apartments for guests. Each apartment comes with private bathrooms, fast internet, and a small kitchenette. The intimate scale of the hotel and the fact that the guests share the premises with Joop and Yudee creates an exceptional, familial atmosphere that sets it apart from larger, impersonal resorts.
Immerse in local culture and unwind in comfort
Guests at the View of Zanzibar don't just stay at the hotel; they become part of the local community. The hotel reflects Zanzibar's vibrant culture, from its locally sourced and crafted furniture to the fresh catch of the day served in the hotel's restaurant. Visitors can also indulge in numerous activities like sea fishing, diving, snorkeling, or kitesurfing. While the hotel promotes a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere, guests can venture out to explore the cultural diversity of Stonetown or embark on a spice tour. Regardless of what brings you to Zanzibar, Joop and Yudee's hotel ensures that your stay is nothing short of a serene, intimate, and unforgettable experience.
