Amazing experience!
We could not say better things about Zawadi - we stayed here for our honeymoon and everything about our stay was perfect, from the villa to the service to the food and the amenities. The food was incredible and we got to try so much with multiple courses at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, in addition to appetizers and drinks delivered to us at sundown every night! The service was so great; we didn't even need to ask for anything as it seemed like everything we could have wanted was provided before we asked! They even set up a private dinner on a patio overlooking the ocean for us for our honeymoon. Additionally, we were able to snorkel using the resort's equipment, which was great, and enjoyed the lovely infinity pool and our villa's own pool, touring the on-site farm, and feeding the turtles that live at the resort! All in all, we left saying this was the best place we've ever stayed!

It’s hard to review this amazing place without it sounding like a string of cliches. But it is truly amazing from every angle. As a solo traveler places like these can make you feel a little weird - it’s so romantic and honeymooney. But at no point did the friendly and attentive staff make me feel weird being alone, nor did they try to befriend me and interrupt my “me” time which I really appreciated. It was the little touches to detail that made it so relaxing. They remembered quickly that I prefer sparking water to still water, and that’s what I was offered at every meal without having to ask for it. And my post-dinner sambuca was brought to my room, again without me having to ask for it. The villas are beautiful, each with their own little pool, amazing view and the biggest most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. If I knew where they bought their pillows I would order some immediately. No review would be complete without mentioning the food. There is a small kitchen farm at the back and much of the fresh produce comes from there. It’s also a great place to visit - there’s a cute goat and as of June 2021 a baby cow. The food is wonderful - I had fresh lobster, crab, giant shrimp every night. And amazing avocado salads. The lobster ravioli served one night was possibly the best meal I have ever had. For those of you looking at the price…Yes, it’s not cheap, and was kind of out of my price range. But I wanted to spoil myself and don’t regret a single penny I spent. In fa
