Being a bit wary of this new resort, what a pleasant surprise hideaway turned out to be!! Absolutely no construction noise!
An excellent location possibly the best in the Island this unique resort has sea-views from each and every villa, an infinity pool the envy of most, attentive and charming staff and all the makings for a great stay!
Cannot fault the resort in any way, and as we visited in the low season the peace and quite was serene, but without the lack of service that goes with low seasons!
Worth a definite look into if visiting Zanzibar, pop round for a cup of tea or meal if not staying there!

Room Tip: All the rooms have sea-views!

Dear suruandfreDD, we too are particularly proud of our location and the infinity pool (see our photo). Non-residents are certainly welcome to dine at Hideaway. We hope to see you again when English skies are too grey. Until then and with kind regards, Samantha

Room Tip: Jacuzzi suites are spacious with big bathroom and jacuzzi - nice for honeymoon couples. Superior l...

If you want a place out of the ordinary you have to come in this resort: I don t think exist here in Zanzibar something closer to the idea of paradise. Everything was perfect: great food, very tasty cocktails and an amazing SPA with so many different treatments. Ishy Teppenyali restaurant I loved the most. I couldn't even imagine to find a place like this: apiece of Japan in Africa!!!!!!
