In all respects Sea Cliff Resport was an excellent place to stay with a really friendly welcome which extended throughout the stay, a beautiful location with an amazing pier jutting out into the sea for afternoon drinks, fantasic food and really nice rooms. It has two swimming pools which are both large and crystal clear and the sundecks are expansive... More

Sea Cliff is a beautiful resort 25 minutes north of Stonetown. Dont hesitate to order a room here, it will be a good decision. Why? The resort is spectacular and has all the facilities you need, whether you are a couple, like us, or a group. The pool, restaurant and sporting facilities are very good, but the best thing about...

We recently visited the Sea Cliff Resort and Spa in Zanzibar, TZ. We were on our honeymoon and our airline lost our luggage. Mark, Kerri , Bianca and the rest of the staff were so awesome and understanding, they saved our honeymoon. We did not have any clothes but what was on our back, my wife didn't have any makeup...

Jambo Thank you so very much for choosing Sea Cliff Resort & Spa Zanzibar for your honeymoon and for taking the time to write this delightful review. Unfortunately, these travel incidents happen when we least expect them to, and can be such a damper on what should be one of the most romantic and relaxing times of one's life. HOWEVER,... More

After having anticipated a really special Luxury Holiday in Zanzibar at the highly rated Sea Cliff Hotel, our holiday started with a really poor performance by Mango Airlines, but that is another story another time ;-) We had looked a 7 day and night vacation.

Mambo & Karibu It is always good to read about our guest's experiences at Sea Cliff. Some are familiar due to the location, the views, the peacefulness and tranquility of the resort and then some have one or two very special comments and we value all with sincerity. Thank you so much for the very kind words about Kerry, Tahir... More

Surprised my girlfriend with a weeks visit at Sea Cliff. We got engaged our last night and overall the week was great. The hotel has a lot of onsite activities that we made use of, e.g. swimming pools, table tennis, gym, peddle boat. The variety of food and evening entertainment was incredible, think local acrobats doing daring stunts and talented... More

Still basking in the memories of our recent visit to the Sea Cliff Resort & Spa. We arrived on Friday following a Safari. We were checked in to Room 412 (having upgraded ourselves to a De- Luxe as it was our 30th Wedding Anniversary) and were not disappointed. Pure relaxation and a great place to unwind. Our room overlooked the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Driving into Sea Cliff Resort & Spa you know you have found something special. The 4 km road through a coconut plantation that leads to the hotel is a reminder of the Zanzibar of old. Peace and tranquility, no other hotels or busy roads just open space and palm trees.As you enter the courtyard filled with tropical flowers and palms the view of the ocean stands before you. With our traditional makuti roofs and Arabic towers lit by brass lights you know this is not a typical hotel. Its an hotel built with our location in mind. It is a unique combination of modern facilities mixed with the original exotic architecture of historical Zanzibar. ... more   less
