Lazy Lagoon Island Lodge

Major city hotel, beach resort, cultural centre and historic destination
Lazy Lagoon Island Lodge is an idyllic Robinson Crusoe island retreat that fronts on to 9 kms of pristine beach on the famous Zanzibar Channel. The Lazy Lagoon Island Lodge looks out over a blue lagoon, which lies just offshore from mainland Bagamoyo. Lazy Lagoon Island Lodge stands within a sanctuary surrounded by indigenous forest and mangrove swamps – home to a wide range of wildlife.

Lazy Lagoon lies in the Zanzibar Channel (offshore from the mainland at Bagamoyo). It can be reached by road from Dar es Salaam, a trip of just under an hour. This is followed by a short motor boat trip across the 2km stretch of sea to reach the island. Traditional boarding methods and an element of shallow paddling may be required to get to the boat. There is an airstrip at Bagamoyo town 7km away and transfers can be arranged.
Dar es Salaam lies on the Tanzanian coast of East Africa. Tanzania's main airport is located in Dar es Salaam, Julius Nyerere International, which is 10 km from Dar es Salaam city center and 20 km from the Msasani Peninsula.
