Sunshine marine was my home for a week long. Awesome views, our room, the pools, food but faremost the superb staff! But what was the highlight.....diving!! After 15 years of being afraid but so willing to do, I finally managed because of the excellent and competent relaxed guidance of the instructors Malou and Simon. And what a joy, two dives... More

I spent three nights at Sunshine Hotel and then three nights at Sunshine Marine Lodge. While both properties are amazing, I was blown away with the management, staff, accommodations, and view at Marine Lodge. The pools overlooking the ocean and Nemba Island were truly breath-taking. The hotel offers free use of reef shoes, masks, and snorkels which we took full... More

I stayed for almost two weeks in Oct/Nov 2014. The setting, location and facilities were charming, photogenic and soul-restoring. A quiet oasis of calm with stunning views out toward Mnemba Atoll. If you seek peace and tranquility, this place is for you. If you seek good value for money, friendly and accommodating staff and a tastefully designed, eco-friendly paradise, this... More

I don't think I could have imagined a better place with a better location and overall atmosphere than Sunshine Marine Lodge. Situated on the north end of the island it'd given me everything I needed: Peaceful stay; far away from the busy cities or overcrowded beaches and at the same time - the natural beauty of Zanzibar being just at...

We stayed here for 6 nights and could have stayed longer. What we wanted was peace and quiet and a chance to do some snorkeling, and that is what we got. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with a mix of native and exotic plants. The rooms are lovely and comfortable. The staff are wonderfully helpful and friendly. We posed as... More

Rarely do I think a place actually lives up to the pictures you see on travel sights. Zanzibar and the sunshine marine lodge actually surpassed the hype in my mind. The rooms are exceptional in every way, the food very good, and the view from the pool is incredible. The rooms have everything you would want (wifi, safe, hot stone... More

My first impression was the beautiful garden! So many colors and all bungalows had an ocean view. The infinity pool was nice, clean and situated over the cliff just above the shore. Romantic hotel but not much to do - perfect for couples though. Our room was nice, but the toilet and the shower is basically inside the room. During... More
