Having just climbed Kilimanjaro, I was ready for some relaxation time. We arrived at the airport in Zanzibar and only had a 35 minute journey to Samaki Lodge which was pleasant and quick. When we arrived the staff couldn't have been anymore welcoming! We had drinks on arrival and we were placed in absolutely stunning rooms with amazing beach views. They treated us like royalty and looked after us completely. They set such a high standard from the minute they greeted us and this standard did not slip for the entire week. The place was absolutely stunning... the flowers around the resort are so well kept and create such a lovely atmosphere. The rooms were huge and clean with a lovely big balcony area. The pool was exceptional - a fantastic size and depth with lots of sun loungers to relax on. The beach was right on the resort - this as well is amazing, especially when the tide is right out and you can walk for ages in ankle high water... it truely is magical. I can't fault anything about this resort - the only thing I'd say is I wish I'd been there longer! The staff make the resort what it is. They are friendly, chatty, involving and are genuinely interested in chatting to you. During meal times a variety of dishes are offered. I was worried that I would have limited choice being a vegetarian but there was plenty on offer - infact I've had some of my favourite vege meals at Samaki! There was entertainment on every night which ranged from singers to dancers to acrobatics to fire performers... everyone got in the spirit and evenings were perfect. I would definitely stay here again, preferably with my partner because it was so relaxing! A perfect end to a holiday... thank you all at Samaki for a wonderful stay..... you are PERFECT! X
