LOCATION: Situated in
the Utende area of Mafia Island, the Pole Pole Bungalow resort is
Archipelago's main base. It is set in a shady, breezy spot facing
a sea of the deepest blue and looking over at the islands of Chole,
Juani and Jibondo.
The floors are made out of hard woods (afrormosia, one of the rarest
and valued tropical woods), the furniture from mahogany and the
door and window frames from doussi.
ROOMS & DESCRIPTION: The beds have wooden
slats and high quality spring mattresses. All linen is imported
from Italy. Bathrooms have double washbasins, king-size showers,
bidets and toilets. Each bungalow covers 60 sq m with personalized
fixtures and finishing.
RESTAURANT & BAR: The restaurant serves local specialties,
seafood and fish.
OTHER FACILITIES & SERVICES: Due to its position alongside
the barrier, the island is the meeting place of large oceanic fish
and the vast variety of fish common to the Indian Ocean coral reefs.
There are over 400 species of fish in the park. The Park is a paradise
for both expert scuba divers as well as those wishing to snorkel
or sail in the native local boats from island to island.
