My Mum and I stayed in this lovely beach resort in May. Despite visiting Zanzibar in the rainy season, we were very pleased with the hotel and very lucky with the weather(!), and thus, would highly recommend visiting in the low season. All the staff at the hotel were very friendly and accommodating - the service was excellent in the... More

Pretty good beach resort. Awesome welcoming. The food was average. Quantities of food seemed limited during a seafood night buffet. Preferred to go for dinner to its sister (Sultan) resort next door. Ditto for lunch.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel from 28th August to 1st September 2014. Being our first time in Zanzibar, we didn't know what to expect. The stay was amazing right from check in. Even though we arrived quite late (around 1am), there was a team waiting for us, ready to show us around and give us a brief.... More

This is the hotel to stay in on the Island of Zanzibar. Not only is the service excellent, but also the staff and the members of the management. I lost my suitcase and they did everything they could to get it back for me - they succeeded after four days. Apart from that, they organised a dinner party for me... More

After our safari we wanted to spend a few days on the beach. We where booked in the Blue bay beach resort and I must say after reading some of te reviews we certainly had some doubts. However we where told that the resort had been closed for several months beginning this year for a complete overhaul / renovation. We... More

Very nice hotel settled in a great environment with almost perfect facilities. The all inclusive service was nice, the hotel staff was kind and helpful, the food provided at the restaurant was good and various, the bedroom was large with a extra king size bed (2,40 m wide!!!) and the cocktails served at the bar were delicious. Anyway, the beach... More

On arrival down the long drive through the private gardens we were greeted by a smiling receptionist - albeit at 11:30 at night - who had kindly organised for an evening meal to be prepared and sent to our room after a long days travel. The marbled foyer opens out into further beautiful gardens and the pool, with clusters of... More

The hotel provides very good facilities and offers a great variety of food, entertainment and activities; the staff in all departments (service, housekeeping, reception, beach, spa, ...) is very friendly; when a guest shows a little bit of interest in the culture and language everybody goes out of their way. A true vacation to relax and take a distance from... More

Beautiful Beach Resort and Spa, very quite and clean. Staff and Management is awesome. We spend 3 nights at the Resort and our experience was wonderful. i had a spa treatment which was amazing and relaxing.. Amina the spa therapist was excellent. Our goal was to relax and not to do any stressful activity, and we accomplished that.
