Lazy Lagoon Hotel in Bagamoyo TZ

You are Here: › Lazy Lagoon

I’ve just had my most relaxing Christmas since I turned two years old. I thought it would be a bit odd to be away from home on Christmas, but the Lazy Lagoon hostess Judy and her staff put together a great buffet complete with ham, delicious turkey, cranberry sauce, Christmas cake, and those funny British Christmas cracker things. I have never seen a hotel work so hard to make our stay special.

If you need a relaxing holiday at a very affordable price, with stunning views and a whole lot of laziness, this is your place.

The lack of AC and fans in the “bandas” is not usually needed due to the ocean breezes, but if you are averse to a bit of sweat you may want to book during the mild months.

Remember you will virtually be on the equator and at absolute sea level, so plan for the heat of the southern hemisphere summer (Oct-May) or book during the cool, dry season (June – Sept).

Bring your books or your e-book reader, switch off your cell phone (yes, they can reach you here if you aren’t careful!), park yourself in comfort on your private veranda, watch the tides ebb and flow, and feel those muscles unknot.

Don’t come here to watch TV or movies, don’t expect a disco or a beauty parlor.

Do wear your expandable clothes because the plentiful, delicious, beautifully plated food is an indulgence you will not want to deny yourself.

Book early, as they seem to fill up fast. Also, plan ahead for the possible two-hour drive north from Dar es Salaam, so that you arrive before dark and don't miss the boat.

Dress to get your feet wet as you arrive and climb aboard for the lovely boat ride to paradise.

Congratulations Lazy Lagoon on a job well done. This place is a treasure - don't miss it.

I would strongly recommend the resort to anybody that simply wants to chill out in beautiful surroundings.

Be aware however that there is no electricity after 2230hrs and no fans or air conditioning, so it can get hot at night. - didn't bother us though. Thank you very much Judy for a job very well done.

Lazy Lagoon is the perfect Indian Ocean island retreat, lying in the Zanzibar channel offshore from mainland Bagamoyo, the ideal place to unwind at the beginning and end of a safari.

There are just 12 rooms on the private 9km long white sandy island with deserted beaches.

It boasts swimming at all tides in clear azure blue water, ideal for snorkeling to be mesmerized by the shoals of iridescent tropical fish hiding among the pristine coral gardens that protect the island.

The island is home to Bushbabies, Wildpigs, Genets, Baboons, Duiker and Suni antelope.

The beach bandas have been carefully constructed so as to maintain the delicate balance in the environment and the conservation of the islands wildlife and mangrove as the primary consideration.

An attractive nature trail leads you through this indigenous forest from you accommodation to the bar and restaurant.

Perfect for honeymoons, large airy rooms, wide verandas, moon lit dinners down on the beach, peace and transquillity, are just some of the reasons for spending a romantic few days on the idyllic Robinson Crusoe island.
