Makunduchi is a beautiful village, built on ancient coral rock; where you will find white sand beaches that gently run down to greet the turquoise waters. The longest beach is 3 kilometer and is perfect for walking, running, relaxing, and exploring.
The location is idyllic for those who love nature and wish to see a traditional Zanzibar village. La Madrugada is ideal for families, friends and couples. However, please note that it is not recommended for those in search of an exiting nightlife. Nevertheless, this spot is perfect due to its array of beach activities, as well as making an excellent base from which you can explore other areas, such as Stone Town, which is ideal for shopping and learning about the history of the island; Jozania Forest National Park, home to the Zanzibar Red Colobus monkey; and Kizimkazi, where you can swim with dolphins.
La Madrugada is a luxurious and peaceful beachfront resort. In order for you to unwind after a day of activity, we have created a comfortable and relaxing lounge area, with a free wireless Internet zone, where you can enjoy our collection of family board games.
We have two pools, with one shallow pool for children, which face towards the sea. At the pool area you will find plenty of sunbeds and our bar, which has an excellent selection of refreshments. A relaxing day by a beautiful pool would not be complete without tasty snacks and tropical drinks.
All the rooms have a view over the pool-area and the ocean, with private seating outside so that you can enjoy a night on the terrace. The interiors of the rooms are designed in traditional Zanzibar-style.
The combination of European management and local participation means that La Madrugada Beach Hotel & Resort is a well-organized, with plenty of local knowledge to guide you during your stay.
