I went to Gold Zanzibar for 2 weeks in October. The hotel, in Kendwa is one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed at. The hotel reception with thatched roof leads down to the stunning golden sandy beach, with clear blue sea. Constant attention is given to the gardens around the hotel with beautiful flowers. Within the room was a huge comfortable four poster bed, built from traditional local timber, with patio doors leading to a veranda where you could enjoy the sea views and evening sunset. All the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The food was delicious with a wide choice of chicken, local fish or beef dishes served in one of two restaurants. The Spa offers massages by attentive staff who left leave you feeling totally calm.and relaxed Overall a first class hotel, amazing location, with every attention to detail, to provide guests with a wonderful stay.
