The seven echo bungalows have been carefully designed to blend into the natural environment. If you are expecting luxury accommodation like most hotels in Zanzibar this will not be the place for you. Each bungalow comes with either double or twin beds. The large living rooms are fitted with local handmade furniture and decorated with African art , colorful fabrics and a hammock. The bungalows each have their own self-contained echo bathrooms.
Given that there are no natural underground water sources on the Island. Each echo bungalow collects and stores its own water during the rainy season. The water passes through a filtration system and then stored underground. From there water is hand pumped through a solar power heated system in to hot and cold water containers for the shower and hand basin in the bathroom.
Dinning at Chumbe is a special experience. Chefs prepare wonderful dishes boasting the local Zanzibar flavors and a mixture of East Africa Cuisine. Chefs only prepare fish that are not threatened or caught in shallow reefs through unsustainable fishing techniques. Chumbe caters for vegetarian and non-vegetarian needs. Breakfast and lunch is served in open air terraces overlooking the Indian Ocean. Dinner is served under the stars and the lush palm trees
Guided and unguided snorkel trips are available on the Island. Guided and unguided forest walks are also very popular. Visit the light house or explore the Mosque. Chumbe offers guests a chance to reconnect and recharge.
