We stayed in a luxury garden pool villa with one bedroom.
The garden villas have no direct view of the ocean.
The villas are big with separate livingroom and bedroom.
The bathrooms are huge and have free standing bathtubs and in- and outdoor showers.
Each villa has a private pool in a size that makes it possible to take more than a couple of strokes.
The resort has two restaurants. One in a pavilion with an uninteresting view and one near the ocean with a magnificent view.
The quality of the food is very high, and some of the best we have had in a top end resort.
Dinner for two with a bottle of wine is around 150 USD.
Not the best beach on Zanzibar, but very well kept.
