Wonderful place to go after a safari as the sounds of the ocean lull you to sleep. It is worth paying a bit more for he beach front cottages which have amazing views of the pristine white beach and the turquoise ocean. The bathrooms are a bit on the small side but the cottages are very clean and have little porches to have your morning coffee or a sundowner.
The food is exceptional; there is a South African chef who has a wonderful way with the very fresh fish and is very enthusiastic about local ingredients. The staff is friendly and helpful...tropical fruit and cooling towels brought around in the morning and afternoon as you loll on the beach.
This resort has a nice pool, relaxing beach , good dive centre and excursions arranged by the hotel. We lay on the beach for two days and then went to Stone town which is about an hour away. Our driver , arranged by Access 2 Tanzania ( our safari company ), took us on a drive of the villages in the northern part of the island explaining the vegetation, the culture and the political status of Zanzibar. We did a walking tour of hot, steamy but interesting Stone town with a guide and collapsed as the driver picked us up and took us to the friendly chaos of Zanzibar airport.
Do note that if you have a bank card with a chip , there are limited ATMs in Stone town especially when the airport ATMs are out of order. Cash is king in Zanzibar so make sure you have schillings or dollars.
