After our safaris my husband and I stayed in this beautiful resort in a villa with a private pool and butler service (a big Thank You to Adili and Amina) - it was absolutely worth it: a life-lasting experience! We had a fantastic week with absolute privacy when needed. The other rooms are generously spread on the Grunds, situated in a beautiful garden which is perfectly taken care of. There is also a large infinity pool. The food in all 3 restaurants was varied and good - something for everybody - and much too much temptations. The management team always had an open ear for suggestions, is constantly trying to improve things and takes a lot of efforts to train the local staff (sometimes the serving of the drinks was a bit slow). However, at the end of the week they knew our wishes before we requested! Only the woman at the guest services was always late and not very friendly. The tapas in the Jetty restaurant under a sky full of stars were gorgeous! Gabi Beach is a bit far although they take you there with some electric golf cars; and swimming in the sea is only possible when the tide is high, but this is true for the whole west coast (due to the coral reef). If we decide to spend some time in Zanzibar once again, we'll definetely choose Melia.
