Jambo! My Family of 4 spent 10 days in Late March at Karafuu Beach Resort in Zanzibar. What a great time we had throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and where possible the hotel team accommodated all our requests. Highlights were the meal theme nights with the Masai and Swahili nights standing out. The meals in the main restaurant had a great variety & the staff were so welcoming. Every evening there was after-dinner entertainment showcasing local talent which we thoroughly enjoyed. Great daily activities like the before-lunch water aerobics. - poolside staff at the bar were always friendly & ready with a lovely cocktail or mocktail. The water sports coordinated by the Wimbi Dive center must be mentioned as the owner Mahomed and his team went over and above to make our trip memorable with diving, snorkeling & fishing - we even saw dolphins. We booked on the all-inclusive package which is highly recommended. Asante sana Karafuu! We will be back…
Stayed 5 days at this resort. What I loved about this resort is that the beach is 1 minute walk away and that you are able to swim in the sea. You also have the option of renting a small boat ($10) to go to sandbank and enjoy the lovely warm water. siblings did dive lessons at the resort and Mohamed & Team were very patient. You can book excursions at Hotel. They have a lovely beach shop at resort. Gardens are beautiful and well kept. Rooms were cleaned everyday. They have Aircon and Fan. food wasn't gourmet however you won't starve and they always topping up dishes and the F & B manager was always friendly and accommodating. They do charge $1.50 for Bottled water... Water in a glass is free. They Do give you a 750ml water in the Room that was replenished every evening. We were on the All Inclusive package which makes things easier when kids are with. They have a Pizzeria on-site and the pizza was very tasty. They have Masai standing by beach so even though the beach is public we didn't have any problems with the beach boys. Our Spa experience was mediocre although the views of the Spa were breathtaking. All in all the Staff at this resort were always pleasant, friendly and accommodating and we throughly enjoyed our stay. Drive from Airport to Resort is about 90mins…
DO NOT DIVE HERE! We got decompression sickness because of the bad equipment and guiding. We even signalled that we had symptoms of DCS at the boat and they were waived away for being sea sickness. We therefore didn’t get proper 1st aid, spent 7 days in a decompression tank and both still have symptoms that will probably never go away. Please do not dive here for your own safety!
Absolutely breathtaking. Beautiful hotel, incredible nature views, stuff of the hotel did everything to make us to feel as best as we can. We had also 6months baby with us, stuff felt in love with baby, they were very friendly to her. I have to point out Mossau from restaurant and Ackim from Guest Relationship - great to meet you two! Kijiji restaurant - main one, every day we were able to choose, many many many variants. Delicious, I can only recommend all inclusive in this hotel, it Is really worth it. Rooms clean every day, cleaning lady Is very kind And full of respect regarding baby. We will ve happy to return back to this hotel. Thank you Karafuu.
The resort was outstanding from all points of view. The amenities and finishing touches in the rooms reflected the 5 star rating so did the multiple restaurants that we tried within the premises. All the staff were incredible nice and friendly and had some very good conversations with them. Lots of pools and amazing beach area.

We had really nice stay at Karafuu Resort, after 10 days of safari some relax was needed. The view is perfect, staff very friendly and they did us upgrade of the room because of our honeymoon. The food was good as well. We hadn't expect a lot, but finally we had a great experience!
My friend and I spent a vacation of imagination and it was very beautiful in the depths of the Indian Ocean accompanied by the wonderful divers at the diving center. We took many pictures and videos while diving to bring back memories again and document them. It was really a wonderful vacation and I thank Mohamed, the diving director for his services...really He is the maker of happiness..😍 and the hotel family. Thank you and I will come visit you soon,♥️♥️♥️
