“Paradise is closer than you think:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Beautiful hotel with lots of personal touch and effort to make you feel special and relaxed on every step.
Great and kind staff- western standard- they know what they are doing and do this great! Marina, owner and manager of the hotel, one of the most professional hoteliers I have ever met- and I've worked with many true my tourist service career.
Helpful and knowledgeable staff at the front desk: Metka and Daniela who arrange everything, seemingly effortless. They take lots of care to keep the hotel nicely arrange, clean and tidy...and there is this peacefulness in the air, it's pleasantly quiet there but the sound of the great Indian ocean.
Exquisite food! Good breakfast and delicious dinners- thoughtfully arranged fresh fish dishes: dinner has 4 courses (with possibility to change menu if you don’t like it) of which at least two are fish (also big, ocean fish/crabs prepared in a fusion Afro-European way).
We've booked standard room but the at the arrival were happy enough to learn they upgraded us for free to a marvelous Panorama suite- we recommend booking this room or ones at the beach front- it's definitely worth paying a few extra euros to get a totally different perspective of the holidays (compared to standard rooms the difference is evident).
Nice and warm enough two pools, perfect to spoil yourself with a fresh fruit juice from the bar.
Enough space to find a intimate corner at the hotel beach front with beautifully arranged spares...
Very safe and comfortable- camera surveillance and Masai guards 24/7. "Beach boys" and villagers can't come all the way to the entrance of the hotel.
Interesting beach- they clean it every day- nice to watch traditional algae gathering of local women and fisherman’s in traditional boats. Perfect for watching kids play and life enroll before your eyes as the locals live it. Half of the day not suitable for swimming though because of the law tide.
Hotel offers free bike rental- useful when the tide is low and you can cycle all the way to Matemwe or around the village...
Friday's live music with local musicians and Masai market at dinner was very nice.
Would choose the same hotel again and recommend it without a second thought.

This place is a real paradise! We stayed one week and we were extremely satisfied. The room was beautiful and clean with air condition. The food was great, from breakfast to dinner. You can get a fresh coconut every day! The staff was lovely and very friendly. This place is ideal for relaxation, with beautiful beaches and turquoise water. We will definetly come back!

It's a small boutique hotel on the beach. The beach is perfect; white sand
and blue-green sea! There are also two swimming pools in which we had a lot
of fun, when there was low tide.
The room was absolutely beautiful. We had a beach front bungalow and I can
only recommend it! We could also take a look at other rooms, and they were
all very nice!
Breakfast was very good and once we also had it on our terrace. We
combined great food with great view. Dinners were all excellent and there
were never problems when we wanted to change something.
Staff was great, very friendly and always happy to help. We had some doubts
how it will be with our little girl, but it was great and she had a lot of
fun!
We hope to go back again!!!

We stayed in Next Paradise for 3 nights with our children (12 and 8) after a week of safari and we were extremely pleased with our choice! The two ladies at the reception were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, the staff was very nice, the food was excellent (fresh fish and seafood!) and the beach beautiful! You only need to know about the tides in order not to be disappointed. But the pool is very nice (we only used the one close to our beachfront family bungalow but there is another one). I just wish to mention that my husband actually cut his toe on the stairs on the pool (in the water) because a lot of tiles are broken or missing, so this should be fixed. But this event did not ruin our stay! We can only recommend this hotel! Thank you again for everything!

Me and my girlfriend visited Zanzibar in september and its realy an amazing place. Long white sand beaches and clear blue see.
But what realy made our stay perfect was the Next paradise boutique resort.
It is a small resort with lovely staff which makes every wish true( we had breakfast at 13:00:)
But what realy blow our mind was the food every evening. You cant get fresher seefood anywhere!

Hope to comeback soon!

Next Paradise definetly deserves the highest ratings TripAdvisor and its community can give. This was truly an amazing high end, high quality resort! My friends and I spent 5 days here and were truly amazed. We had a two room bungalow which was clean and very comforatable. The grounds of the resort are immaculant and gorgeous. Its true what the say about the beach, so clean and pristine.

The staff was without a doubt 100% professional and actually very caring. We had asked about music at a bar up the beach in the morning before we went out and when we came back the receptionist said she had called to make sure the show was on. This is only one of the small really nice efforts they made for us.

The food was also out of this world. You could order from the menu or they had a set special made meal every night. Everything was so fresh, delicious and amazing. They also have a wonderful onsight masseuse.

I would highly recommend this place and want to say thank you to all the wonderful staff that helped make our trip amazing! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
