We arrived in Dar es Salaam in the afternoon and it took forever to get to the hotel via the ferry. Call the hotel in advance and let them arrange a taxi driver who knows the best way to get there (85 dollar) and to make sure they have your reservation.
The hotel is beautifully situated with a well kept garden with monkeys. We even met a turtle. The bungalows are large and there was plenty of space for two extra beds for the children. The bathroom was very nice and large and the rooms cleaned thoroughly every day. Both the pool and the sea were very nice for a swim and the food was good, even if not exceptional. We were lucky enough to see the turtles hatch at a beach close by. The service was mostly very good. We would love to go back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Amani means “peace” in Kiswahili, and that’s exactly what you’ll find at Protea Hotel Amani Beach. Just 33km south of the bustling city of Dar es Salaam, down a sandy road to the ocean, hides our small African paradise and a total escape from the outside world. Set amongst 80 acres of beautiful tropical gardens, each of our 10 luxury beach bungalows overlooks the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. They combine the opulence of Zanzibar sultans with African craftsmanship and charm. Around the bungalows the grounds are alive with wildlife and, on the unspoiled white sands of our secluded beach turtles have chosen to make their home. We have two dining areas - one that serves breakfast and lunch, whilst our main restaurant provides a much more romantic and atmospheric setting for the evening meal. Our food draws its influences from the exotic flavours of East African cooking as well as from the simple fresh flavours of the Mediterranean. The open-sided makuti thatch beach bar provides the ideal outdoor seating area to enjoy the refreshing coastal breeze without the glare of the African sun. Whether you’re looking for total relaxation, a romantic holiday, adventure or simply to experience unspoilt nature, you’ll find it here and more. Welcome to an unforgettable experience, welcome to Amani Beach Hotel. ... more less
