Silence - Environment - Slowness

Mafia island

Switching off the engine and sailing, no music at the restaurant, the gentle sound of wind and waves. Pole Pole "different time" is governed by natural elements: the moon, the tides, the sun, the seasons. Adjusting to a different rhythm that is dictated entirely by nature ...
Discard the pre-conceived notions of your typical beach holiday, and open yourself to something completely different... Pole Pole is seamlessly integrated with its surrounding environment - cultural as well as natural. There is no distinction between the hotel and its surrounds...

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, Tanzania.
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. Balancing luxury with respect for local culture and environment, it is the perfect place to relax after a safari, and the ideal base for exploring the underwater wonders of Mafia Island. With a touch of style.
