Worst stay ever for a “luxury” property. They claim this is a 5* property but nothing more than a 2star guest house. Water issues the whole time we were there, shower stopped running halfway through my shower on two occasions. Most staff had body odour so when they came into your room, it took several minutes for their scent to leave your room. Food was terrible, cold and unpresentable. Everything about this place is terrible. I don’t know if they were ever 5* but they’re terribly run down. We couldn’t wait to leave the place. They ruined the last bit of our holiday in Zanzibar.

Amazing overwater villa at isaraya. The room was huge with 4 poster bed, sofa, outdoor deck and plunge pool. Bathroom amazing with double bath and shower overlooking the ocean. Staff were lovely (special mention to Naomi, James and Paul). There are some improvements and things to be aware of. Room amenity replenishment was random and needed prompting. Isaraya restaurant was lovely but very small, we loved it, some may find only 5 tables too quiet. Food was amazing (esp room service lunch, much nicer than the main konokono restaurant). There is (as others mention) a beach bar next door and the loud techno dance music does take away from the tranquility. Esp over Eid it was quite disturbing and could be heard in the room. Swimming from the villa only possible at mid-high tide and be aware of strong currents if you’re not confident swimmer. Could do with some shade (umbrella?) on the terrace. Be aware also that boat trips and fishermen do pass very close so if you’re taking a shower, could do with a window blind to preserve your modesty! Having said all that, this is a unique property in Zanzibar, aspiring to be like the Maldives and almost there. Room and staff more than made up for the negatives.

My husband and I stayed in the Isaraya Over Water Villas for a few nights and in a garden villa at KonoKono Beach Resort. The property was stunning, food and cocktails were fresh and delicious, and the staff were kind and professional. I highly recommend.
