My wife & I returned from a trip to Tanzania. We visited Arusha, Dar-es-Salaam & Zanzibar. In Zanzibar we stayed at Tamani Villas for three nights in February 2014. To say we had a wonderful time is an understatement. The drive from the airport to the resort was pretty and we were warmly welcomed at the villas with deliciously refreshing... More

What makes Tamani totally unique is that the villas are part of a social enterise which fund the primary school behind. Seeing the healthy, energetic, smiling children makes it clear that somehow your stay has brought something positive to the village. The Tamani villas are beautiful, private and homely. The villas open out onto a colourful garden, great pool, glorious... More

We stayed at the Tamani Villas in mid-August 2013, and what an amazing stay it was. Our villa stood right on the beach in the mixed residential-tourist neighborhood of Matemwe. Apparently, Matemwe is the last such "gem" on Zanzibar seeing as all of the other beach areas are built up around mega resorts and are hugely overcrowded. Our beach was... More

We had the most amazing time at Tamani Villas! The villas are right on the beach and the rooms look out onto the ocean. The sand is whiter than white and the water in the ocean warm as bathwater! If you dont fancy swimming in the ocean, then there is a nice pool. We were fed and watered and extremely... More

Just got back from a week long stay at Tamani Villas and it was absolutely amazing. It is the closest I have ever come to seeing paradise on earth! Amazing luxurious villas, friendly staff, swimming pools, beautiful gardens which open up on to a whitesand beach! 15 minute walk from a PADI scuba diving centre down the beach, an hour's... More

We stayed at Tamani Villas for a week in January and had the most amazing time. The accommodation itself was pure luxury, right on the beach and it had its own swimming pool. As a family we got to enjoy everything without even having to lift a finger. There was a full time cook who specialized in everything including western... More

If ever there was a paradise on earth, this would surely be it. Beach, swimming pool, great food, impeccable service, Tamani Villas had it all. Me and my family could not have been more happy with our choice of residence during our stay at the beautiful island city of Zanzibar. Located right at the coast, the hotel offered a variety... More
