We just got back from out Honeymoon stay at Sea Cliff Resort. After a week on safari, the beaches of Zanzibar were calling to us. Pulling up to the resort was exciting, because it really was beautiful. And quiet! There is plenty of room for guests to relax, so I never felt crowded when sitting poolside. The waitstaff was wonderful. We had the same waiter every night, Hamad, who was so smiley and friendly. He set up the most amazing honeymoon dinner for us, that made our stay there so special. Our table was setup outside away from the other guests dining, and covered with flowers he picked himself. The seafood dinners they serve to honeymoon couples was phenomenal, and one of the best lobsters I have ever eaten. I would recommend Sea Cliff not just for honeymoon travelers, but for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation. There is plenty to do at the resort. The pool tables are free, there are tennis courts, kayaks, etc. And you can do day tours that pick you up right from the hotel. Sea Cliff also provides a free shuttle into Stone Town if you stay more than 3 days, which was really helpful. I'm not sure if we would have taken that short trip if they didn't, and we really would have missed out on a nice experience.
The only slightly negative thing is we were looking forward to escaping to the BEACHES of Zanzibar. We hadn't realized there isn't really a large beach area, and the resort is more pool focused. I'm sure it states this on the website, but we were placed in this hotel by a tour group and didn't really research the hotel ourselves. It didn't really change our vacation at all. We took a snorkling tour, so we did get to spend one day out swimming in the ocean anyway.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Driving into Sea Cliff Resort & Spa you know you have found something special. The 4 km road through a coconut plantation that leads to the hotel is a reminder of the Zanzibar of old. Peace and tranquility, no other hotels or busy roads just open space and palm trees.As you enter the courtyard filled with tropical flowers and palms the view of the ocean stands before you. With our traditional makuti roofs and Arabic towers lit by brass lights you know this is not a typical hotel. Its an hotel built with our location in mind. It is a unique combination of modern facilities mixed with the original exotic architecture of historical Zanzibar. ... more less
