ARE YOU READY TO DISCOVER SISTER ISLAND?


You can find us in Banda Kuu / Nungwi Road - Zanzibar

...What about our special room 'Anna'? It's placed on a real tower and offers an aerial view of the surroundings with the ocean in the background!

A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE IN ZANZIBAR!

SISTER ISLAND is not only a Bed & Breakfast located in the North of Zanzibar in a very strategic position, but it is a unique project that combines 'hôtellerie' services with charity initiatives in support of the local community of Nungwi.

6 ROOMS

Our Bed & Breakfast in Nungwi offers 6 rooms with double bed equipped with mosquito net (a third single bed can be add on request). Every room has private bath, air conditioning and fan.

NOT ONLY BREAKFAST!

With each booking you have included breakfast with hot drinks (tea / coffee), bread-butter-jam and fresh tropical juices. During the day you can enjoy also snacks and soft drinks (paid service).

WE ARE THE WORLD, WE ARE THE CHILDREN...

On the ground floor, Sister Island hosts a real kindergarten that welcomes every morning for free about 20 children from Nungwi who live in a situation of economic hardship (selected in agreement with the local community). The project is made possible thanks to the direct contribution of Sister Island, all the donors, and thanks to the support of the Italian association 'Spartiacque', which has been operating for a decade in northern Italy in the context of social and youth desease.

STRIKE A POSE... VOGUE!

Cool african shopping? Yes, please! Sister Island is also a fashion brand: inside our B&B you can find our glam-fashion-boutique where you can buy clothes, bags, accessorizes designed in Italy and made in Zanzibar by young tailors. Part of the profits is aimed at financing charitable activities and the proceeds of some specially highlighted products are donated entirely to support the kindergarten as the local community of Nungwi.
