this place is amazing! we had such a relaxing stay!!
after travelling through africa for 4 weeks, our final stop was zanzibar. we usually love activity filled holidays, and travelling around africa was one of those holidays. we decided to choose this lodge because of its secluded location. it is in the middle of no mans land, with a gorgeous view of the ocean and beautifully styled rooms. the staff are so helpful, friendly and willing to go above and beyond for anything you need. The food was great with a good variety daily, the cocktails are delicious also!
The rooms are secure and our belongings felt safe throughout our stay. room service came twice a day, in the morning to clean the room and in the evening (when your at dinner) to lower the mosquito nets and spray your room with nice smelling insect repellent.
highly recommended!! will definitely be back!
