Amazed by the incredible service, the friendliness of all the hotel staff. The property takes your breath away from every angle you stand. The magic ocean that appears and disappears depending on the day was awing. Loved the availability of the water sports, the kayak, the catamaran, the mountain bikes. Undoubtedly, one of the most pleasant, best spent days of... More

We visited the hotel for 3 nights. The reception at about 0100Hrs was very good with some towels and a cold meal in the meal before we went to sleep. The rooms were nice and the gardens very welcoming in the sun. We were given a tour brief By Haji from a tours firm based at the hotel and he... More

This place is amazing value with the friendliest, most welcoming staff. Usually you get ripped off at 5 star resorts, but with cocktails at USD8 there is no way of this happening. Instead of fighting for a sun lounger near one of the two infinity pools or hammock, you have many to choose from so you dont need to worry.... More

It really was a getaway, peaceful, away from other resorts. has a small private beach a short walk away. Beautiful sunsets from the jetty... Thanks Sea Cliff for a wonderful stay, there... More

We spent 10 days in June as a family holiday (kids are 9 & 12) and enjoyed Zanzibar as well as Sea Cliff a lot. We chose it because it was close to Stone Town and the airport - and because they have horses which are very, very well kept by a lovely couple from Durban. There are a lot... More

Thank you to the amazing staff at Sea Cliff, the people at the Sea Cliff are always so keen to help and made our stay extremely pleasant. The food was great too! Definitely worth another visit. Perfect for relaxing. The little touches of decor and themed dinners were always a nice surprise.

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
