Hotel's Favorite
From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel special. We stayed in Villa 3 and absolutely loved it. The rooms are spacious, clean, private and very generous. We especially loved our private pool and roof top sundeck. Our butler was Mage and she was amazing and so thoughtful. She went out of her way for my husbands Birthday and even organised Chef to make him a beautiful gluten free chocolate cake. The food was outstanding and created with alot of passion and talent. From the soups, to beautiful fresh fish and seafood, authentic Zanzibar flavours and the most divine desserts. We really enjoyed that the menu changed daily and the staff were increadinly accommodating to any special requests. Lunches at the beach were very special and we especially enjoyed Peter's warm hospitality at the Beach Restaurant. The massages at the Spa were just divine and we really enjoyed our gym workouts in the open air. The staff organised a very special full moon beach dinner for our last night which was the perfect ending to the perfect holiday. Thank you to an amazing team for such warm hospitality. We are already planning our next trip back.

You’d expect an excellent stay at a Relais property and this one definitely didn’t disappoint. From the first Jambo to the last Asante, our stay at the Zanzibar White Sand Villas & Spa was perfect. Our beachfront villa was our oasis for five days. The staff and management were attentive to our every need and request. The food was great and nicely varied with different ‘events’ on different days. We can’t say enough nice things about our personal butler Magret! She was most helpful for our daily activities and requests, was so very pleasant and her smile made our day every day. We highly recommend this property as a wonderful place to relax, unwind and enjoy.

What an absolutely beautiful place, the beach side villas are spectacular, it was hard to leave the villa! But everyone we spoke to there from the other guests (although it is so spread out you don't have to run into anyone at all) to all the staff were just amazing, and #John took care of us throughout our stay and was beyond wonderful and thoughtful, it was hard to leave!
