Unfortunately this hotel burned down in 2010. I had the pleasure of being shown around the SAU Inn back in 2005. It was THE place to stay in Jambiani at the time. I even wrote a tip here on VT. They were a British owned hotel and really had it all. They had 2 charter boats, ran their own travel company and did PADI scuba diving courses. At the time I visited they had the only swimming pool in Jambiani. The staff were exceptionally nice and happy to show me around. The gardens were beautiful, the rooms lovely and they were located in the middle of the long beach here in Jambiani. Unfortunately they are still listed not only on VT, but other websites and understandably in old guidebooks.

Jambiani has moved on and there are other nice hotels and restaurants in the village. Sadly there is not a central location for all excursions/adventures in this wonderfully beautiful village on probably the best beach in Zanzibar.
