I felt like my room was a little small and dark, but the bed is pretty comfortable. There are in-room wifi so I was able to work in my room at night which was super nice. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful...my taxi was late and the security guard pulled up his chair for me to sit down by the door and wait. Also, the restaurant has really good pasta. The pizza was just okay, but I had the gnocchi with prawns...it was delicious!

Hidden Zanzibar Gem
I had a great stay at Sahari Zanzibar. The beautiful pool and gardens feels like Bali. The rooms are comforable and the sound of the ovean every night was a beaitful plus. I enjoyed wood stove pizzas and friendly and accomadating staff. The owners are lovely people. This place has a cool luxurious vibe to it. It is a true gem.

Nice small shabby/chic hotel. Pleasant stay if you want complete relaxation. The food was very good and it is located not far from the Iconic Rock Restaurant. Which is definitely worth a visit for a unique experience.
