About Bawe Tropical Island

Elegantly lying just 5 miles off Zanzibar’s Stone Town, a 30 minute boat drive away, Bawe Tropical Island is an island not bigger than a football pitch. This beautiful island will take your breath away; with acres of lush paradise this haven of peace is ideal for a relaxing holiday. Bawe Tropical Island is the perfect setting for those escaping on a romantic breakaway.

Bawe Tropical Island has 15 magnificent cottages that are discreetly scattered along the beach line, all of them with panoramic views of the clear waters of the Indian Ocean, ensuring maximum privacy and seclusion.

The cottages are situated to make them feel like a part of the surrounded landscape, are built on local traditional materials and topped with thatched roofs, allowing the invigorating sea breeze to circulate and affording cool atmosphere day and night.

The spacious cottages host magnificent ‘dhow-type’ beds equipped with mosquito nets. The tasteful interiors, known as ‘los colores’ given their warm combination of soft colours are elegantly decorated and they all contain en-suite bathrooms, all with double basin, two alfresco showers and a bathtub. The large private wooden verandas looking over the ocean give an impression of living outdoors, with the air remaining mild all year round.

Bawe Tropical Island is ideal for those looking to escape a hectic lifestyle. The island possesses all the alluring dreams of isolation, of remoteness, of getting away from it all. There are many things that you cannot find in the island; these things serve no purpose; no television, no shoes, no news. For those who are seeking seclusion, as far as possible, from overcrowded schedules, no other paradise is more enchanting, where refinement is combined with so much poetry and imagination. Dreamers will lie away on the beach or by the fresh water swimming pool, basking in the sun, without a care in the world.
