Beautiful Location in Zanzibar!
This was my first time visiting Zanzibar, although I have lived all around East Africa. If you are looking to have an authentic experience in Zanzibar, this resort will not be for you -- it is away from all of the poverty and real life of people on this island. However, if you want a gorgeous, restful resort with an exquisite view of the ocean, then you can have that! The service of everyone who works at the hotel was excellent; the manager resolved a problem with my reservation fairly. The spa is fantastic - I got henna and massages with two wonderful woman. The quality of the food could improve in terms of freshness, but there is a wide array for all tastes and food palates. I was at the resort for a 3-day conference, so I never left the resort area. My favourite feature is the bar that jets out to the sea, and from where you can see a gorgeous sunrise or sunset. The bed and bedding in the rooms was excellent. While this would not be a 5 star hotel by North American or European standards, it is a solid 3.5 or 4 star resort with excellent staff.

The perfect getaway
The hotel was absolutely stunning and the service was fabulous . The staff were courteous and generally couldn’t have done anymore for us . It was truly a wonderful experience . On site there was plenty of activities and obviously golf being a huge selling point . It was however the horse riding that was booked with the magnificent Rosa that made our holiday . Even for the novice rider it is certainly worth doing . Swimming with the horse in the beautiful ocean was such a highlight .

Great spot with great facilities and lovely 9 hole golf course. The road out to the resort is a bit rough but well worth the trip.
