I was a little hesitant booking Zanzibar for a holiday. I wondered if it was safe. We needn't have worried- it was heavenly. The staff make the place! They remember your name, they're friendly, and nothing is too much trouble. Hussein, Yuseff and Al-Haij all made our stay extra special. The hotel is gorgeous. It's about an hour from the... More

This was our first choice to stay in Zanzibar, but unfortunately it was full for the dates we wanted. I had contact with the manager, Kim Bird, who did manage to arrange one of the most memorable evenings and meals for our Anniversary dinner in Zanzibar. Kim went out her way to arrange a beach dinner with many differences and... More

We visited this hotel in September with our friends and had a lovely time. Our room was spacious with a lovely view of the beaches and pools. There are lots of sun beds so unlike some places there are no need to reserve them! The beach is stunning and looks exactly like the pictures although you can get harassed slightly... More

Absolutely love this place, far from Stone Town making it a blessing to be so peaceful and away from all the buzz and smell! Beautiful white sand beach strip, the beach boys only trouble you when you walk beyond the hotel but not on our almost private strip of ocean. Reception is beautiful, not your typical 5* accomodation, it has... More

One cannot find a better resort for this kind of value in Nungwi! The resort organised our travel from the airport and greeted us with coconut drinks on arrival (although not to my taste). Check in was easy and our stay was enjoyable. Guests mustn't expect too much since it is a 5 star resort to Zanzibar's standards and not... More
