One of the rare occasions of seeing a sunset at a Zanzibar beach. Very nice 'villas' offering even air conditioning. Breakfast was great, and the best of all was the very reasonable pricing. Ahsante sana!

We planned our Zanzibar trip at the last minute for the new year and by this time most hotels were fully booked and those available were very expensive. We stumbled upon Maruhubi. We were a bit worried about it considering it was cheap. We went saying at least we would have a good view as it was right on the... More

Stayed there 3 nights over the Christmas period. Great pool overlooking a vista of the Zanzibar straights with beautiful sunsets. A good place at a very good price and is very relaxing and good to just kick back and rest. The restaurant is spacious and the food is good, nothing special, just good served by a fairly attentive staff. Rooms... More

Found Maruhubi beach on trip advisor. Looked great since it had wifi, a pool, and was close to stone town which meant that transport was going to be easy. Was nervous before we got there since there wasn't alot of information on the internet. But boy was it worth it. The view from the villas is breathtaking. The food was... More

Located right by the beach, not the best beach in Zanzibar but still it still came with a very good view! great place to watch the sunsets. The hotels manager, "Juma" is a very friendly and... More

We stayed at Maruhubi for 2 nights. It was okay, it had very lovely gardens and a nice pool, it but wasn't selling beer (we had to trek next door) and our room was in the back next to the mozzie-tastic tidal creek. The food was very good though and I appreciated the waiter chasing away all the manky stray... More

Cancellation policy according to the portal was 'contact the hotel directly'. Giving at least 2 weeks notice, I changed my booking at Maruhubi from 5 nights to one, contacting Maruhubi directly as per the insturctions.... More

When we flew in to Zanzibar Island, we asked our cab driver to take us somewhere close to Stonetown but still nice because we were only stying one night. He brought us to Maruhubi Beach Villas and since this was in February, the tourist traffic was insanely quiet. I think we were the only ones there. We immediately fell in... More

Situated a five minute drive from the centre, Maruhubi Beach Villas is a peaceful place to relax between visits to the fascinating and picturesque Stone Town. half a minute's walk to the beautiful sand beach opening up to the Zanzibar Channel with a lovely view of, amongst others, Changu and Grave Island. The small and pleasant villas at Maruhubi all... More
