We spent 10 days here, and is one of the most beautiful places I have been too. The 5 houses have a lot of character which was a lovely change from the norm, the appartments are spacious and the bathrooms are well decorated. The air conditioning provides a great escape from the midday sun and the hot water a refreshing change to most hotels in Zanzibar. The views from the well kept garden are beautiful. Whether it be sun rise, watching the fishing boats come in or midday when the sea glistens or sunset over the dhows leaving for the night, you can guarantee a beautiful sight. The bar does not serve alcohol, but works out well as can bring the drinks you want or they are more than happy to get it for you. The food is fresh, particularly the tuna, which I really recommend. The staff are particularly friendly and always there to meet all your needs and go out of their way. What was great about this place, was it felt unique and quiet, not too many people which made it all a lot more private. Although if you are looking for busy all you have to do is walk next door to some nice restaurants and bars. So enjoy lying in the sun on the well positioned sun beds and slack up the atmosphere as really won't forget it, an experience of a lifetime.
