Echo Beach Hotel
Named after the 1980 hit song by Martha and the Muffins, Echo Beach Hotel opened in 2007 on a lovely stretch of white beach, on Zanzibar's east coast – on the Michamvi Peninsula. It is run by its British owners, Sue and Andrew Page, who previously ran hostelries in the Loire Valley; this small lodge-like hotel is very much their own creation, and feels close to their hearts.
Our view of Echo Beach Hotel
Echo Beach Hotel seems to have overcome the teething problems of 2007–2008. It has developed into a small, simple, relaxed beach hotel, with a great location, lots of character and plenty of colour. Now, following more positive reports and the arrival of two new managers in the latter half of 2009, we are optimistic that it has turned the corner and that the quality of service and food that we experienced will please our travellers.
