This is definitely the place to go for a relaxing, luxurious holiday. This hotel is packed full of sheer luxury. All the buildings within are beautifully set out at ground level. The accommodation is particularly luxurious and spacious with enormous four poster beds and equally plush individual bathrooms and wet rooms, separate lounge area, wide screen TV and an outdoor plunge pool set in a large patio. The decor is very tasteful in mainly whites, creams and gold with beautiful brass lights and lanterns and very comfortable wooden furniture.
The cuisine is varied, fresh and of a very high standard with ample choice of food for almost every taste. It is also plentiful and the evening meal usually consists of four to five courses.
The swimming pool is large and kitted out with very comfortable and ample sunbeds. Other amenities include a spa, tennis courts, free use of bicycles and a wide range of water sports many of which are also free.
The service is understated but friendly and we were impressed by the staff’s politeness and willingness to please.
The hotel grounds lead directly on to a white sandy beach with turquoise sea where small brightly coloured tropical fish can be found in the shallow waters.
Thanks also go to Nick at Pure Zanzibar for the recommendation.
