Food is good and quickly prepared. Only minus is that it is not walking distance from white-sand Jambiani beach. As we had planned excursions it was not an... More

Is a little far away from the life of the island, but you can rent a car or organize with a taxi and you can easily... More

We wanted a break to rest, we are not a young couple, and we found this the perfect place to relax and unwind plus doing some excursions as well. The staff were helpful and friendly at all times. The weather at the time when we were there was also great end July to early August, not too hot yet.

The hotel is slightly south of Jambiani on the road to Makunduchi and down a typical Zanzibari lane - if you are planning on driving you'll need a 4x4 or something with good ground clearance. The hotel didn't receive our request for two separate beds and thus hadn't prepared, therefore they very kindly offered us a second room free of... More
