Mafia Island Lodge
The Mafia Island Lodge stands amidst tall palms on a sandy beach in Chole Bay, in the heart of the marine park near Utende village on South coast of Mafia.
14 Superior rooms, 18 Standard rooms and 2 Family rooms are set among the coconut palms with their own veranda overlooking the bay. They are all self-contained with air conditioning. Twin and double beds are available. Among the 34 rooms there are 2 family Suites, which are made out of 2 comfortable connecting rooms with one sharing bathroom, each one with its own veranda overlooking garden and sea. They may comfortably accommodate a max of 5 guests. All our rooms have garden and sea view. Hot and cold water is available 24 hours a day.
The main lodge has a relaxing atmosphere with a large open restaurant, bar and lounge area. Board games, table tennis and volleyball are also available.
Located on our beautiful beach - the only one in Chole Bay unaffected by tide - our Beach Bar offers light lunches and early afternoon fare such as salads, sandwiches and freshly caught fish, complemented by a fully-stocked bar.
As the sun goes down, it becomes the ultimate chillout zone for sitting back with a happy hour cocktail while watching the beautiful African sunset. We will also be offering intimate candlelit dinners, perfect for celebrating occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, honeymoons or simply the pleasure of sampling our special menus on request.
The bar's open, generous size makes it the perfect spot for monthly dance parties dedicated to different genres of music...Traditional African rythmes, dance music, or even.... tango!
