Pongwe Bay Resort is the only resort In Zanzibar built and projected following the principles of Bare-Footing Philosophy.
It’s a way of living that has the lightest impact, removing the barrier between us and nature.You can avoid to use shoes everywhere, even in the common aerea or at the restaurant.
Pongwe Bay Resort is around forty minutes by car from Stone Town, the capital of Zanzibar, declared a Unesco World Heritage Site, a place that is truly magical, where different cultures mix; African, Arabic and western, embellished by historical buildings such as the Old Dispensary and House of Wonders.
The atmosphere is even more magical at sunset, when, as the call of the Muezzin can be heard, preparations get under way for the fascinating evening gathering at the Forodhani Gardens, the gardens overlooking the sea built by the Sultan. Dozens of small kiosks are set up in terraces overlooking the sea, and an extraordinary show of local cuisine is staged amongst the motley crowd gathered for an evening chat, immersed in the scents and flavors of spicy Swahili cuisine.
