Three days ago we had our wedding at Sea Cliff Resort in Zanzibar and are very-very pleased.
We came in with minimal planning and wanted a stress-free little ceremony. The management team - Abre, Maggie, Mario, and Dean - were knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. They worked creatively with our loose guidance, stayed pleasantly within our budget without any hidden charges and allowed us to spend quality time with our friends by the pool. Looking back, from the first day of our stay to the last, the resort easily exceeded our expectations and delivered a picture perfect wedding.
The rooms were very nice and we received complimentary couples massages as well as champagne in our suite. I was actually sick with a cold upon arrival at the resort and Maggie had a doctor come to meet me and give me medicine within minutes.
Our wedding took place on the lawn (some 100 meters from the guest rooms) - arch made of purple flowers interwoven with banana leaves, white chairs overlooking the sea and sunset.
For dinner we moved to the Jetty - round tables, white tablecloths, lots of candles. We requested bold and spicy food for our wedding dinner, and Chef Mario tailored the menu for us nicely from two preset menus (King Neptune's table and best of Zanzibar spices) using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Several of the wedding guests were food professionals and they thought the food was scrumptious.
After dinner we went to the beach where we had a lovely setup of blankets, torches, some snacks and a local tarab band. This midnight barefoot dance in sand on a secluded (and guarded) beach is something I would recommend particularly wholeheartedly to anyone considering a wedding at Sea Cliff.
