The resort was the ideal getaway for our honeymoon. We got more than we expected and we couldn't be happier with the service. The view of the white sandy beach is breathtaking we couldn't ask for more. We were blown away by the friendliness of the staff who seemed to me like they did not have any trouble interacting freely... More

My husband and I stayed at Ocean Paradise for 10 days at the end of June. The spectacular welcome on arrival really set the bar for our whole stay, from the cooled flannels and refreshing drink to being politely seated to take in the view and the tweeting of the birds until a member of staff came over to greet...

After a frustrating journey coming from Dar es salaam, the mere breathtaking view of the resort managed to take our irritation away. Despite our late arrival, the staff welcomed us with so much energy. Our receptionist tried to check us in quickly in order for us to have supper, as the restaurant was closing at 10.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean, it is as the name suggests a little piece of paradise. From your arrival at Zanzibar Airport, the resort is a meandering 45 minute journey through un-spoilt scenery, passing typical African villages where the way of life has changed little for hundreds of years. At Ocean Paradise Resort Zanzibar, you will be greeted by a blaze of colour as you sweep down the imposing driveway, saluted by a Masai warrior as you pass through the entrance gate and be captivated as you arrive in reception and look out over the resort and the azure blue sea. Mature coconut palms swinging in the breeze, white sandy beach, beautiful landscaped gardens, traditional style round chalets with pitched makuti roof, a stunning waterfall feature and the largest swimming pool in Zanzibar are just some of the sights that await you. A big smile and the greeting of "Jambo" will be the first words you hear, as you begin to feel the warmth that the people of Zanzibar are famed for. ... more   less
