We recently spent 5 nights at the Masairiki, 4 nights before setting out for a Safari in northern Tanzania and the last night following our return to Stonetown, Zanzibar. What stands out most about the Mashariki, beyond the beauty of this hotel and its physical setting, is the graciousness and class of its staff and management. A perfect 10!
