The Zanzibari is a really lovely hotel in a stunning location! The service is fantastic and the restaurant serves great food (and great cocktails too :) ) The hotel size is just perfect - it provided us with a wonderful and tailor made experience - none of this standard, massive overcrowded hotels with people "reserving" their sun loungers with their...

This hotel was perfect. Lovely pool and beach, wonderful owners and staff, great food and even a spa! A short walk from the touristy Nungwi, we could enjoy peace and quiet but also take a sunset cruise nearby. We loved it!

This hotel is a bit of a jaunt from the airport and Stonetown but absolutely worth it. The hotel is spotlessly clean, beautifully maintained and staffed with delightful people. Infinity pool is a joy, beach is exquisite (old coral reef to traverse before sea becomes deeper and a darker blue) and the Spa is to die for - you relax... More
