Mafia - Hotels & Lodges

  • Chole Mjini Lodge - Chole Island

Set sail for its mangrove-lined shores, and as the first treehouses hove into view, the last vestiges of the 21st century recede: no roads, no cars, no electricity... Just a star-spangled sky, flickering candles, superb food, great company, and the timeless luxuries of space, immersion in nature, privacy, and utter peace.

  • Butiama Beach Hotel - Kilindoni

There is a casual and relaxed atmosphere catering to couples, friends or families. With only 13 bungalows and a maximum occupancy of 32 people, it is the perfect beachfront retreat to relax and unwind. All of our accommodation is offered on a half board basis and lunch can be purchased on site.

  • Pole Pole Bungalows - Utende

Seven bungalow suites, perfectly blended with the surrounding tropical garden, overlook the infinite hues of blue of Chole Bay, the core of Mafia Island Marine Park. Pole Pole, considered one of the most exclusive eco-resorts in the world, is renowned for its great cuisine, unpretentious and laid-back atmosphere, and warm but discrete hospitality.

About Mafia...

Mafia is undoubtedly the best dive location in Tanzania. It’s a small haven that has a lot to offer and, quite exquisitely, is also suitable for less experienced divers. The reefs of the archipelago offer a staggeringly beautiful and varied display of marine life. The diversity of animal and plant life is hard to match, with over 50 types of corals and 400 species of fish so far identified. On top of that, Mafia offers one of the world’s best opportunities for snorkeling with whale sharks!
