My wife and i,just spend a week at the residence and we fall immediately in love with the place.The setting is quite spectacular with a beautiful beach.The villas are well decorated with a nice bed and a magnificent bath room with alessi,s bathtube and toilets.We can not say that this place is a luxurious traditional place.A better definition would be of understated luxury. All the villas have a swimming pool and a wood deck. Privacy is also a plus of the place.THe restaurant is also very good placed with a nice view on the sea and serving delicious food. Considering the lack of trained staff on zanzibar the expatriate that formed the restaurant'staff has made an excellent job training local people. Jerunima one of the waitresses is , by far, the one that stand up the most among local people. Linda and Vikran,manager of the restaurant can be also mentioned on our review for their kindness and professionalis.FUrthermore we can also reccomend a visit to the Spa if you need to have some massages or beauty works. Tides are also quite spectacular and the sea can retreat up to a mile. You can see a lot of local women picking up shells and other sea food during tide time.We highly reccomend this place to everyone that can afford it.
