After a 10 day safari we flew to Zanzibar and firstly spent 2 nights in this hotel. I could have stayed longer! Lovely hotel, like a mini club med formula, with a very welcoming staff, including the manager Alessandro who was always around and very attentive to his guests. Beautiful view and the beach which is a 10-minute hotel bus... More

The most wonderful thing I like about the place is plenty of activities are arranged from dolphin tours, beach house tours, African traditional... More

Hotel - is situated directly on the coast in the Chwaka bay. You will find here everything you need to enjoy and relax. African style buildings, green area,... More

The hotel is at the other side of the island but just about 30 minutes drive away, hotel taxi would cost you $50, try cracking a local deal and you might find a taxi for $25 although we booked it from hotel, didn't wanted to...

There's no beach but a small minibus drops you in 10 minutes to a ncie stretch of beach where another hotel from the Ora group... More
