“Paradise”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We stay for 2 nights and all the time I felt myself like in paradise! It's absolutely new,clean and comfortable hotel with high level service. The meal was delicious with good assortment of seafood, pasta, meat, exotic fruits, mostly italian cuisine. For Zanzibar it's hard to find hotel with such friendly and relax atmosphere. For us was very important to stay in hotel with clean and sky blue ocean, Hideaway beach is under strong control that's why it's pleasure to take sunbath and swim there.
I recommend to buy all inclusive package, because it's more profitable. So if you still can't make a choice Hideaway is the best variant!

The place is simply amazing! Warm faces filled with smiles straight from the gate cheers up a newcomer. Artistic lounge, luxurious cozy & spacious rooms, nicely manicured gardens characterized by lovely flowers, stunning ocean view from any location (including from your bed!), 'healthy' health spa, nice restaurants with diverse cuisine, kids center, a well designed swimming pool, clean-white-sandy beach….just to mention a few. This is the only place that will make you experience the real Zanzibar hospitality!

Fantastic Resort! Large rooms very well furnished which bring you into a distant era .... modern colonialism mixed with Arabic influences with a touch of Africa and Indian style ... Restaurants are well cared for in detail and great food taken care by a French Chef ... Spectacular sea and beach ..Sympathy everywhere around you... Very Good Holiday !!!

Room Tip: The Suite Is a real suites... I suggest you !!!

The only advice I can give to the travelers is: don't book here! After is impossible to leave! The week end with my husband and my little princess was so amazing! They have special food for kids and my daughter was also a baby model for the official photo shoots of the hotel.
The main pool is amazing and I have never seen a staff taking care so much of the beach: sometimes I thought it was their own. International buffet is just great and if you have some medical problem there is also an MD free of charge. Needs to be back here again very soon.

Hideaway is AMAZING!! From the colourful Gardens to the Crystal clear beach! The resort offered 5 star delicious cuisines with the best services.The children had the best time with well equiped children's centre and care-takers at all times. The Health spa/jacuzzi is a must for anyone visitng Hideaway! After a number of activities at Hideaway, the one thing that stands out from all are the suites and huge bathrooms. Well-designed, very comfortable and spacious!

Overall Hideaway is exotic, charming staff, and i would definately go again!

Room Tip: Corner Superior Suites are very spacious with ocean view and best sunsets!!

We stayed in this beautiful resort for 2N/3D with our two kids on all inclusive basis...i must say that this place is amazing and they have beautiful beach. let me categorize:-

Pool - They have a beautiful infinity pool with a rim flow and with equal depth of 1.25m. In the same pool they have done a Rc wall partition for kids pool which is the best concept in terms of keeping an eye on kids. Well equiped with pool beds and no need to reserve your beds early morning by keeping your towel as many people do so!

Rooms - we were in Prestige Beach Villa (Kusini)...just stunning with the design concept and the best view of the sunset from this villa. They have a plunge pool in this villa (actually you cannot say plunge because is as good as a normal pool due to its depth of 1.2m). Rooms are beautifully decorated with optional two flat screen TV (although the channels are very few and reception quality is not clear due to some technical fault), The best part of this villa is the outside patio with the private pool!

Food - for vegetarians i would say its average but they are trying hard and goes beyond to satisfy your meals requirement - am sure they will improve! But the snacks and drinks served at the pool bar are delicious including their Pizzas!

Beach - i would they are very lucky to have this beautiful beach as compared to other resorts...very clean white sandy and the sea is crystal clear blue on the shallow end. they have a small beach bar as well which is a good idea. Water sports are there but with extras as it does not include under All Inclusive basis.

Restaurants - they have three main rest - Aqua (for all inclusive basis), Carnivorous & More and Ishi teppanayaki on option pay basis. But i must appreciate the interiors for these two optional restaurants, its just wow & beautifully designed!

Staff: all the staffs are very friendly and helpful but there are always some small weaknesses which are ignorable!Overall they are all doing their best to make you feel homely.

Spa/Massage - They have created a state of art hideaway spa. My wife went for a massage and she liked it very much, so i am pretty much sure that they are good...

Mosquitoes - were lucky as didn't find any...but yes there were few flies and i suppose due to weather at this period.

Kids club - well catered for kids with well trained kids representative!
They do also have a small library and a sunset cigar/shisha lounge on pay basis...

Overall it's a beautiful resort which i will always recommend to all that it's definitely worth a visit.

I must thank to Ms Samantha and Mr. George for making us feel more comfortable and making sure of all our needs. Also not forgetting Mr. Mark (Restaurant in charge) and the main Chef for trying hard to satisfy us in veg meals.

Oh yeah - my kids loved the acrobatic show which was performed after the dinner time.

Room Tip: Prestige Beach Villa - rm no 168 (Kusini)

This resort is an amazing place to spend a vacation, by my point of view, I wish i could live here forever. Everything is so beautiful: the SPA, the beach, rooms and amazing food. I had enjoyed three incredible sunsets form the Cigar Lounge and I had my favourite drink and a fresh Romeo y Giulieta chatting with random friends. Three days are not enough even if I think even a month is not enough for a place like this. I live in Nairobi and this is the perfect place to run away from the problems of a big city: one hour and half from paradise then!!!!
