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

If you are looking for time to relax, unwind in a secluded and beautiful beach location then this is a good place to do it. Service was excellent, rooms were nice, there was aver far choice of food and drink provided in the All Inclusive offer. All in all good value for money.
