My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights as an extension option to a VJV holiday. The journey from Stone Town took about 90 minutes by road and gave us the opportunity to see more of the island and its activities. At the hotel we were given a lovely welcome by the manager, Mrisho. He like the rest of... More

We were a group of 19 people who stayed at The Zanzibari 9 days in February. The hotel is nice, with a beautiful garden and great room. Facing the sea but it is bad for bathing because of tides and lack of beach. The location is far from the most important attractions of the island which provides increased travel time... More

We spent a short holiday here (Feb 14) which was perfect due to the hotel staff, the cuisine, location and facilities. Everyone from the gardeners to the manager gave full attention to ensuring all guests had the perfect holiday. Nothing was too much trouble and many things were a lovely surprise. The food was amazing and I'm sorry we never... More

One of the most relaxing holidays ever. Loved sleeping with the doors open, cool sea breeze and view of the coral while on the balcony in the mornings. Food was exceptional, surprise every day and incredible flavors. Retreat to a hammock under the starts and a bonfire in the evenings. Staff are incredible! I stepped into a sea urchin and... More

We spent four nights at this hotel in November 2013. What we liked with this hotel was the attitude and helpfulness of the staff. There was always someone around with a smile to help you out with coffee, beer or a drink. We were on a half board plan and breakfast was very good with fresh fruit and juice every... More

I do not have enough words to describe how amazing the service, staff and quality of the hotel is. Paolo, the manager did everything to make our stay very special, while all the rest of the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great time.

This is an excellent boutique hotel in a superb location with wonderful food and brilliant staff. We were lucky, as this was low season, to be upgraded to the very spacious Frangepane suite with it's own pool and beach, truly delightful. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and twice in four days we were treated to a 5... More

My girlfriend and I recently spent 4 nights at the Zanzabari. The staff were great, very friendly and helpful and we were lucky enough to be offered a free upgrade to a private villa which was wonderful. Having experienced both the villa and a standard room I'd advise guests to opt for the villa for privacy and for comfort. The... More
