I had a great opportunity to stay in Sharazad for 3 nights and meet its owners - Francesca and Simon. They are incredibly welcoming and charming people, so their hotel has the same atmosphere. You feel there like at home, but on the beach, with a perfect service, delicious cuisine, relaxing spa and huge nicely arranged territory. I will definitely come back there!

I arrived at Sharazad on the 21st of December I was warmly greeted by Simon and Francesca the owners and was made very welcomed.The room was clean and comfortable my daughter son-in-law and grandchildren had been there since November.After only 2days I was aware how friendly all the staff were they went out of their way to make sure I had everything I needed.I have traveled to many countries all over the world but the setting and location of Sharazad has to be my favourite. The food was of very high quality and besides the main restaurant there is also Kim’s a Vietnamese restaurant which is excellent I originally booked to stay till the end of January I ended up staying till the end of March and that about sums up how I feel about this paradise I will definitely be returning.

My husband and I live in Shanghai, China. We decided to go home (I am a native citizen) for our wedding and had our honey at Sharazad Boutique Hotel. It was the first time for my husband to travel to Africa, and I wanted both of us to have the best experience in Zanzibar for our wedding and honeymoon. This boutique is very unique and special, the staff make you feel at home, very attentive and is just like living in paradise. When we first arrived at the boutique, we were welcomed by the manager Ms. Neema or you can call her Dada Neema, she is lovely and soft spoken lady. Our room was next to the pool, bed was massive, and had all the amenities need for enjoyment at the beach. The hotel has two restaurants, one is for all the meals and the other had Asia theme. My husband and I enjoyed both restaurants, for me in particular I enjoyed the seafood platter. Basically is a mixture of calamari, prawn, octopus, fish, marinated with spices and limes. I swear I could eat this seafood platter everyday in a heartbeat. Apart from the pool near our room, the boutique has two additional very big and beautiful swimming pools, so all guests can enjoy pool time and beautiful weather. If you like to go snorkeling then you are in the right place, Jambiani has one of the best beaches in Zanzibar, the sand is super white, water is clear, easy to snorkel, and fishing. There are also activities at the boutique for everyone to join and have more fun! I owe my utmost gratitude to Francesca for accommodating me and my husband. We would have not known of this exquisite boutique if it was not for her. Apart from being the owner of Sharazad Boutique Hotel, she and her team made us feel at home and truly felt we are on vacation in paradise. I highly recommend everyone and especially people from China to come and book their stay in Zanzibar with Sharazad Boutique Hotel. Thank you Francesca and Dada Neema.
