The rooms in Ocean Paradise are spacious thatched rondavels with own porch set in beautifully landscaped gardens right at the beach. The scenery and the sea are stunning. The rooms have air con, fan, minibar and a kettle with coffee and tea supplies. The beds have mosquito nets, very necessary! We were on the half board package, which includes breakfast... More

The rooms are made up 2ce a day and the staff are very friendly. The food was okay and there's quite a selection to suit most palates. The water is so beautiful. Clear water, pristine beaches and sand banks call to you. The resort has its own diving centre for parasailing, jet skiing, scuba diving, fishing, snorkeling and kayaking. It... More

After a hectic week of gaming safari in the mainland, we thought of ending the vacation by lazing on the pristine white beaches of zanzibar. We were amazed beyond expectations on arriving at the resort. The sapphire blue ocean, the tropical trees, the lush palm and the white sand beaches were inviting from the day we arrived here. The cottages... More

My family and I have just returned from our recent 4 day stay at the Ocean Paradise resort and spa. We used our time at Ocean Paradise to reconnect with dear friends and rest from the busy-ness of everyday life. Ocean Paradise (I will now refer to it as "OP") is located in a gorgeous stretch of white sand beach.... More

This place is so beautiful, it doesn't seem real. It seems like you are in a scene from a movie. As you travel down a dirt road to get to this resort, nothing prepares you for the lush foliage, the palm trees and the beautiful beach that it sits on. They really work hard to keep everything in pristine shape.... More

stayed at the Ocean Paradise beach resort for 12 days. All rooms were spacious with king sized beds and balconies. Meals were buffet style and all taken outdoors. Large swimming pool and spa. Local entertainment, music and dancing most evenings. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Walks organised to nearby coral reef and local village

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean, it is as the name suggests a little piece of paradise. From your arrival at Zanzibar Airport, the resort is a meandering 45 minute journey through un-spoilt scenery, passing typical African villages where the way of life has changed little for hundreds of years. At Ocean Paradise Resort Zanzibar, you will be greeted by a blaze of colour as you sweep down the imposing driveway, saluted by a Masai warrior as you pass through the entrance gate and be captivated as you arrive in reception and look out over the resort and the azure blue sea. Mature coconut palms swinging in the breeze, white sandy beach, beautiful landscaped gardens, traditional style round chalets with pitched makuti roof, a stunning waterfall feature and the largest swimming pool in Zanzibar are just some of the sights that await you. A big smile and the greeting of "Jambo" will be the first words you hear, as you begin to feel the warmth that the people of Zanzibar are famed for. ... more   less
