SeVi Boutique Hotel is situated on the NE part of the spice island of Zanzibar, directly opposite of the spectacular atoll of Mnemba, a fantastic diving and snorkeling area.
With only 13 Bungalows and one Villa nestled amidst our lush tropical gardens, located directly on an isolated bay, you enjoy the exclusivity of your personal piece of paradise.
Unwind with stunning views of the Indian Ocean that unfolds from turquoise to ocean-blue and the pristine white sand of the beach.
A setting, not only to reconnect with loved ones but also with your inner self.
When the tide is out (twice daily), a “reef walk” is an excellent way to explore the oceans treasures and admire the amazing corals revealed. Our staff will be happy to organize this for you.
When tide is in, you can swim and snorkel right in front of the hotel.
Take a dhow and enjoy crystal water snorkeling or join our in-house PADI center for a diving trip through one of the world’s most famous underwater reserves.
Our Garden View, Pool View and Ocean View, bungalows (Bandas) are characterized by the typical island style: traditional, open white brickwork and covered by Makuti roofs made of dried palm leaves.
Stylish interiors using natural materials, villagers’ handcraft und local furnishing, provide modern amenities and this special island- castaway- feeling.
The lamella shutters have been designed to allow a gentle sea breeze flow through to cool your sun-spoilt skin. All Bungalows are fan cooled as well as air conditioned in case you might need it.
King size bed, lounge area with mini fridge tea & coffee making facilities and the en-suite bathroom with separate WC are just a few of our amenities. The loft offers the laid back comfort of a Swahili Lounge and can also provide beds for your children- a romantic sleeping place under the mosquito net with the makuti roof above you.
Your private terrace with garden shower and private plunge pool, with cozy hammocks allow you to enjoy the island feeling at its best.
Luxurious and spacious, our seafront villa provides lots of intimacy in 250 sqm on two floors.
The breezy terrace with private lounge area and pool is simply and tastefully furnished in classic Zanzibari - Swahili style, combining Arab elements with clean elements and treasures found on the beach.
Two master bedrooms with king size beds, en-suite bathrooms, private dining and bar facilities completes the stunning setting directly on the incredible white and soft beach.

We follow the policy of avoiding wastage of resources and preserving the environment. The hotel is built entirely with locally produced materials. All doors, windows and furniture pieces are built by skilled carpenters of the neighborhood. SeVi Boutique Hotel continues to rely on local workforce and source materials locally.

The spirit and the hospitality of Zanzibar is in the heart and soul of all our staff members, working at our property, ensuring the well-being of their families.
Developing and improving the village is essential for the property as we live in synergy.
