Chef was great, food was great, villa comfortable. Full service. Personnel wonderful. House service great. Manager worked very hard to give good service. If you want wifi, the service is spotty, slow and sometimes not at all. Just enjoy the beach and the view. more

Management response:

Thank you for the lovely review! We are pleased that you enjoyed the services of our new host, Anna and her fabulous team of 6 years, Chef Abedi and housekeeper Mama Sherry. I hope you enjoyed the Swahili cooking lessons and Chef's Spice demonstrations! We believe that Chef is the first in the link to your cultural journey in Zanzibar!... more

The villa is nice and spacious, great for a big family like ours. I spent most of the day lounging... more
