About Arabian Nights Zanzibar

The Arabian Nights is convenient located on the South East coast of Zanzibar Island, on Paje Beach.

If you are looking for a nice quite hotel, this 2 star guesthouse is definitely the place to stay.  It is however also not too far from some of the other hotels found on Paje beach and has its own outdoor entertainment.  It is a short drive from Kizimkazi & Jambiani and only 40min drive from Stone Town and Zanzibar International Airport.  Exploring the rest of the Island will not be a problem from here, and the Paje Dive centre is close to the hotel if you want to explore the marine life of Zanzibar.

Arabian Nights Zanzibar will be perfect for the following travellers:
  • People travelling on a limited budget, the packages are affordable and good value for money.

  • People wanting to go on honeymoon - Arabian Nights has limited rooms, so even when the hotel is fully booked, you will not feel crowded.

  • Scuba divers wanting to explore the wonderful marine life on Zanzibar, Arabian Nights is perfectly situated close to a professional dive center offering a variety of watersport activities.

  • People that prefer to also have a bath in the room, most hotels on Zanzibar only offer showers

On behalf of the group (11 Queens and 1 king) I would like to thank you for ensuring that our Trip was a success.  The staff at Arabian Nights were excellent and we were warmly received and well looked after.

The manager, Mr Masoud, especially, went out of his way to make our stay as pleasant as possible and we spent some lovely quality time with him over coffee in the evenings.  The shuttle service provided was also excellent and on time.

We were able to enjoy almost all aspects of the Zanzibar experience (except riding in the dala dala).

Since we visited Zimbabwe (Vic falls) in 2011 and now Zanzibar, we feel that we have now exhausted Africa for nowWe are looking Towards and Eastern trip for

the future.  Any suggestions by you will be welcomed.

I am still in the process of gathering the (millions) of photographic footage from the group, and will e-mail you the best ones in due course.


Best wishes

Hi Dawie.

We had an awesome time in Zanzibar. The hotel was nice and the staff very friendly actually all the locals were incredibly friendly. Your Zanzibar representative drivers were great and informative. We did two tours. One being Stone Town & The Spice Tour. I preferred The Spice Tour but the best tour of them all was the Safari Blue which included a marvellous feast amongst many things. We would love to go back to Zanzibar and we are convincing our friends to start saving so we can go in a group next time. I have downloaded many photo’s taken onto my facebook page if you want to go and look through. Unfortunately we only have one of the two of us!

Anyways it was a fantastic experience!

Thanks so much for all your help with setting this up, I think we’d of been a bit lost without you.

Hi Dawie / Rose

Vreeslik jammer jul hoor nou eers iets van ons.

 Ons was baie hartseer om so gou weer terug te kom. Van ons daar aangeland het, was dit een groot fees.

By Arabian Nights het die personeel oorgeloop van vriendelikheid. En wat n beautiful plek!!!!!!

Ons was BAIE dankbaar vir die aircons in die kamers – dit was n hitte wat ons sweerlik nog nooit ervaar het nie!!!!!

En die see en wit strande was awesome!!!!!! Ons het n paar toere so tussendeur die “rus” gedoen. Ons was Stone Town toe, het die Safari Blue toer gedoen – highly recommended!!!!!!!!

Ons het ook die spice toer gedoen, ons was prison island toe om die GROOOOT skilpaaie te gaan kyk. Ongelooflik mooi!!!

Verder het ons heerlik in die swembad baljaar, langs die strand gestap, by verskillende restaurante gaan eet rondom ons blyplek. Dit was waarlik een groot fees.


Hier is so 3 foto’tjies. Die groep foto was geneem die oggend toe ons vertrek het.


Baie dankie weereens vir jul uitstaande diens. Jul het ons vakansie meer as die moeite werd gemaak!!!!!

Hi Rose

We arrived back to an unpleasantly freezing JHB on Tuesday.  Just wanted to say thank you for all your advice and arrangements; Zanzibar is BEAUTIFULL; i even loved the morning we spent in Stone Town;  we will definitely go back annually to kite board there.  All worked out well for us; Paje is definitely the best spot to kite for beginners to advanced.  The guys from Island excursions represented you very well; they were amazingly on-time/professional and informative.  Arabian nights also worked out well; i was surprised to find a built in hair dryer; safe and little bar fridge in our room.  I think the thing is that if one has high expectations of anything one must go elsewhere;

Zanzibar is definitely the spot to go for beautiful beached/soft sand and water and to chill. You are welcome to use me as a reference if you like.  Many thanks once again. 

Kind Regards

Nicky Kynoch xx

Hi there,

Wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time on Zanzibar.  Weather was great with only a couple of drops per day (not even 3 minutes long) in die morning with the rest of the day sun shine en sea. Die beach en sea at Paje is unbelievable  - especially during low tide when the sea is back for almost a km and you can then walk to the reef.
We did some tours as you recommended to Stone Town, the Safari Blue tour, Jozani Forest and also rented scooters to drive to the villages
(Jambiani en Bwejuu).
Your people on Zanzibar were extremely professional en on time. Had no problems at all.

Many thanks for all your arrangements - only wished we could have stayed longer.
