The Old Boma Hotel is a beautifully restored 100 year old fort.

The Old Boma Hotel is located in Mikindani on the southern coast of Tanzania. This magnificent former colonial government building was refurbished by British charity Trade Aid in 1998 and has been run as a hotel ever since.


The Old Boma Hotel has spacious guest-rooms fully furnished with hand-carved beds, Tinga Tinga paintings and other local handicrafts.

The rooms are kept cool by high ceilings and thick walls, coupled with ceiling fans.

Most rooms have a balcony with a sea or garden view. Hotel facilities include a large swimming pool surrounded by Frangipani and Flame trees with pool-side bar, with the Old Courthouse provides shaded seating.


Guests are served fresh food with chefs making full use of locally grown organic produce, herbs and spices, using a variety of coastal African, Arab and Asian flavors.
