First of all the view and atmosphere was amazing. The rooms were excellent, and the water was beautiful. The only problem i had was that the hotel needed a minor upgrade because a lot of the appliance were faulty. But if this happens the plumber is there right away with a smile on his face. One thing I left out...

We stayed here between Xmas and New Year. Really enjoy our stay here. You can easily see that the resort is extremely well managed. We were surprised by a free upgrade to ocean view room. You can always find something at the buffet. Staffs are nice and attentive.

Loved this location! First time in Zanzibar & this hotel was highly recommended. I was upgraded upon arrival & had an amazing view of the ocean. Great breakfast followed by spending hours laid out in the sun. This was a highlight of my trip.

Let me start off by stating the obvious. Number 1...dont wear any long pants/shirt when going to Zanzibar, you will literally fry the minute you get off the plane (its very humid and somewhat hot). Number 2...know that before you get to the hotel you will drive for about 400-800m on a very bumpy dirt road, remember that this is...
