My husband and I have just returned from 6 days r & r following 6 days wonderful safari in the Selouse and Ruaha game reserves.
Elise and Ralph welcomed us on arrival with a lovely light cocktail and cake. 4.00 is high tea time every day with tea and cakes or pastries, whatever the chef makes on the day.
There are 3 types of villas and the ones with the Ocean view are just wonderful as are the ones set back amongst the 'jungle' of shrubs and trees - monkeys hurtle about most of day in small numbers and you can sit for ages just watching these funny little creatures antics. The bathrooms are open to the elements, so you can imagine my husbands comments when he said he was sat on the loo one morning and looked up to see a monkey on the wall sat just studying him - what a star. Food is brilliant with a choice for every meal. Drinks not expensive and well worth treating yourself to.
My husband needed urgent dental treatment and Elise contacted an English trained dentist in Stone Town and he was treated without any problem.
Bit of advise make sure you take loads of anti bite spray, they even bite through your clothes.
The sea is just paradise, warm and a lovely pale turquoise with almost white sandy beaches. The Dive school run from Unguja Lodge is excellent - from a plain old snorkel to full dive or wind surfing.
Honeymooners are treated to a special evening overlooking the sea and everyone at some point get a bottle of bubbly in their rooms to watch the fabulous sunset.
Have a massage, arranged by the Lodge - one of the best I have ever had!
Thank you again the family run Unguja Lodge - we hope to return one day.
