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

This is the first Hotel i stayed in, with my friends in Zanzibar. good location, not too far from Stone Town or the Ferry. 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

Originally booked to stay here through a hotel portal (not sure if I can name it on here) for 5 nights and paid a deposit. 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

After spending 2 nights in Stonetown, we spent 2 nights here and were very glad we did. Being at the beach was relaxing and quiet, a perfect complement to bustling Stonetown. Maruhubi is a place to really relax and we did. We had a large room with a wrap-around sea view (#1). The room was very comfortable with a casual... More

We have just left Maruhubi Beach Resort and have a wonderful few days. We very much wished we could have stayed longer, and will be back in the future. Maruhubi is very conveniently located for Stone Town, but feels like a peaceful haven away from the city. Juma the manager is a wonderful host who made us feel very at... More

This hotel does a great job making guests feel welcome. Great pool on the ocean (open 24 hours) a plus for great night and morning swims. Great service when you request anything and the manager really wants to make you feel comfortable (he's even willing to let you use the office for internet). Food was good, rooms comfortable (and air... More
