Best hotel ever!!!! Never got no for an answer! A hotel is just a building (although this one is a lovely building in a lovely environment) but the great staff made this a home far away from home, such lovely people. As were the Masai people! Great to have met them! Dinner was a surprise every evening: dining in the restaurant or on the beach? Meat or fish: all prepared in front of you, lovely salads, plenty of fruits etc.etc. There is an option to change money in the hotel, € or $, all is possible! Booking trips in the hotel is much cheaper then booking it with your host(ess)! The cocktails made by Mussa and Mohammed were the best we've ever tasted!
Zanzibar is a beautiful island and when we come back to visit our Zanzibar friends, we will definately book Sultan Sands again!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sultan Sands Island Resort is situated on the wide, sparkling beaches of Kiwengwa on the East Coast of Zanzibar Island. Sultan Sands is a resort with a unique character: an inspired blend of Swahili and Arab architecture and decor creates a relaxed ambience, while first-class amenities and facilities ensure complete comfort. The spacious rooms at Sultan Sands are built in the style of traditional African rondavels, each tastefully decorated with hand-carved Zanzibari furniture. All rooms are ocean-facing with some situated just metres from the beach. The resort's wining and dining venues are equally impressive, offering delicious local specialities as well as Far-Eastern and European favourites. Sultan Sands shares a 500m stretch of beach with its sister property - Bluebay Beach Resort & Spa. Guests of the two resorts also share many facilities and amenities, including the famous Oasis Spa and the One Ocean Dive Centre. ... more less
