This is truly a beautiful resort, and the staff are wonderful. We stayed there for one week in late October, 2014. The owner needs to appoint a manager and provide funding for updating and maintaining this beautiful place. The owner also needs to embark on a marketing plan. During the week we stayed there, only two other chalets were occupied... More

swahili resort Why Zanzibar? Exotic, inexpensive and flights were convenient. Visa on arrival was also easy though expensive. 100USD for Americans. Immigration did NOT ask for Yellow Fever immunization cards. We had spent 70USD to get the shots for both of us. We also took malaria prophylatics before during and after our stay. AND, we did get bit by mosquitoes.... More

Just got back from a 7 days stay at this 'resort'. Have some good and bad comments but mostly bad. The rooms are big and cleaned every day. Sometimes you get towels, sometimes not, so you have to ask! There was hardly water coming out of the shower, but three days after we asked, they came to fix it. The... More

The resort is close to Dolhin Bay resort, another place where we stayed on our trip to Zanzibar in the last week of December 2011 before moving to Dolphin Bay Resort. This place is a good 2 hour drive from the airport. This is small resort with a medium sized beautiful blue pool right in the middle next to the... More

The pool was cool and refreshing. You can swim on the beach at high tide. The rooms were clean, with a safe in the room. We had a power outage once during our stay. The meals at the restaurant were good.
