The swimming pool (7 m on 11 m and 2 m deep) is open for you between 8 am and 18 pm. You can have a shower before your bath; we use a few chemicals not to overcharge the environment. We ask you also not to jump when other people swim. Close to the pool, you will find showers and toilets. On the chairs, you get matresses and the towels are ready in your room in a basket.

If you wish or need something at the pool, ask the staff. The personal is there to take care of your needs.

We have the pleasure to offer you a private beach with shower and toilets. Matresses will be brought to you. The staff will also serve you food and drinks if you wish and take care of your personal things when you swim or walk. We advise you don’t take anything valuable when you go to the beach.

You find also the cinema, the fitness and the massage room on the beach.

Pumzika Beach Resort: how it all began…

25 Feb

We are both from the south part of Switzerland, the Valais, Danielle from the French region and André from the Lötschental. We are in our 50 and happy parents of 3 adult boys. We lived in Bern for 30 years.

During our travels, we started to search for a quiet, sunny and warm place by the sea. We found it here in Zanzibar and live here now as residents since November 2010.

We used a lot of energy, courage, work and had many surprises to get this small paradise. We are now ready to share it with you.

We speak English, German and French and understand Italian and will care for you and your comfort to make of your stay a truly authentic experience.
