This place is outstanding, one of the nicest places I’ve ever been. We spent a couple of wonderful days in this small boutique hotel in the Northeast of Zanzibar. The German family-run place has only 4 rooms, all beautifully designed according to the 4 elements: a fire, water, earth and air room. All rooms and their terraces/balconies face the stunning beach and also a quite unique pool (as shown on the picture). The hotel is really good for spending honeymoon, but also for friends or family holidays or just for a couple of days relaxation. They have a lot of stuff there for guest to rent/try/do: boule/boccia, kubb, dart, beach volleyball, snorkeling equipment, a library with over 250 different movies and approx 100 books, open air cinema, x-box, massage, diving and kite-surfing not far from there, etc. etc. But these things are not offered actively like in one of these clubs. the atmosphere is very relaxed. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They have a main house where the 4 rooms are located, a unique pool which forms the centre of the “resort”, terraces as well as a separated restaurant and bar which can be used by guests, but also by other people. We spent wonderful days there: Thumbs up!
