We had a wonderful stay of 8 days in the Zanzibari. It was clean, beautiful and you felt home. The people working in this hotel are so friendly and helped us out with everything. Thanks again for the lovely stay. Jacqueline Lauritsen from Holland

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!

I was told that sea food platter costs $10 as per the menu but to my surprise when the food was ready the supervisor sent the waiter to us saying the food costs $20 per head... More

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
