Stayed 3 nights at Karamba hotel in Kizimkazi. It is for Zanzibar standards very reasonably priced and you get good value for Your money. The rooms are small and simple (standard rooms) but spotless and nicely furnished. The open air shower is an extra twist. There is a little nice beach, access to the ocean via a stair down the cliffs and a nice pool with ocean view. The restaurant offers excellent food for and caters for all tastes. But the best with the place is the people working there. From the manager to the doormen, from the kitchen staff to the cleaners - everyone makes You feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed. Their are extremly friendly but also decent and unassuming. In a Zanzibar environment, where You have to be very careful not to pay insane amounts of money for very little or no service Karamba! really stands out!
Lovely place, lovely people. PERIOD.
