Zanzi Resort opened officially in September, so it's brandnew. This, the discount they offered and the good reviews so far convinced us to give it a try. And we didn't regret it at all!
Zanzi Resort offers a lot of privacy: there are only 7 villas. Each spacious villa has it's own garden, own pool (6x3m) and a beautiful view and direct access to the ocean. The beach is somehow private because at each side of the ressort is an army camp (no trespassing allowed) which also makes it pretty safe...
The food is very good: The lobster we ate the first night was excellent and the chief cook is presenting himself the first day at the villa which is a very nice gesture. The staff in general is very friendly and helpful.
The only tiny negativ point is that they don't provide free bottled water at the villa (only for the first day). This is quite odd because they provide tea and coffee with milk at the villa...
All in all it's a perfect getaway if you like a lot of privacy.
