While strolling along the beach we came across this wonderful hotel set on the best beaches of Zanzibar. Due to our flight being postponed we decided to go in and enquire. Anuradha was kind enough to give us a good rate for our three nights. Two days later we checked in and Ram was there to welcome us. We were... More

Where do I even begin. My family and I arrived for a 3 night stay and we were completely blown away from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The rooms were gorgeous! They were spacious and well tended too and our ocean views from our balconies were unbelievable. The room was well serviced and taken care of.... More

Unfortunately we had 3 quite unsettling experiences with this hotel in the 5 days we were there. Sadly this was our honeymoon and I feel the management at the Gold really ruined it. 1. We booked our honeymoon though a big and reliable agency. When we booked this hotel we booked on the grounds that it was a honeymoon and... More

Dear Lawrence P, I wish to thank you for having booked your stay at Gold .We have read your comments. The staff told you that your stay was not booked as a Honeymoon trip.

My husband and I returned from Zanzibar Gold earlier this week having spent 10 days there after our safari. We were on all inclusive package.

We had two garden rooms for five days on a half board basis. The site, beach, pool and gardens are magnificent. The reception, restaurant and rooms are also beautiful and luxurious. The food is good, a little unimaginative, in particular the fairly limited breakfast buffet. No espresso coffee, diet coke or very standard A la Carte dishes available throughout our... More

My boyfriend and I went back to Gold, for the second time in 2 years, and again we can confirm we made the right choice! The hotel is located on the most stunning beach in Zanzibar, the landscape is incredible, and tides are not so strong, so it's possible to enjoy the blue calm water all day... Ok well if... More

We enjoyed our time at Gold Zanzibar. The beach is stunning, staff were very friendly and the rooms were just gorgeous. We had spent time at more personal hotels before this in Pemba and on Safari and it took a while to get used to a bigger hotel but we settled into the beach/pool balance pretty quickly.

Wow! From the very moment we checked in we were treated like royalty! We were invited to have a seat overlooking the resort, beach and Indian Ocean with a glass of champagne and asked for our passports. A few minutes later we were escorted to our room.
