This is the perfect place to disconnect en to rest in quietness.
We stayed at this hotel the second week of January 2013.
The hotel is well placed with a fantastic view of the Indian Ocean.
Its build in a nice traditional style architecture.
The actual manager, Nikki is very nice and relax. The staff is really friendly.
The daily maintenance is mainly good. Room, paths , beach are daily more or less cleaned.
It's a pity that the infrastructure is old and not maintained.
Beds are to short (about 185 cm). Rugs, mosquito nets, bathrooms, cousins, are old and not really clean and looks like not replaced in years. What cost a rug in Zanzibar? Maybe 10 dollar? This is not a big investment and it would make such a difference!!!
Breakfast is nice, with nice omelet and coffee.( The best we drunk in Zanzibar) but again sugar pot is not really clean and not well maintained etc, etc.
One only evening we had dinner there. The food was cold, de spinach where full of sand. No good for the price!!!
And nevertheless if we go back to Zanzibar I would probably go back to Sazani beach to stay.
We only missed what the name Sazani means (Swahili for "a bit extra"), but we enjoy sun, rest and beach, without shouting Italians or Polish people around. Note that I have nothing against italians and polish people, yes against shouting people in nature. It's a pity but you find those in other places in Zanzibar.
One last thing: go now to Zanzibar, because I think that in a few years its going to become the new Ibiza. I hope not!!!
