A lovely hotel if you're not fussed about getting in the sea, which isn't really swimmable on this part of the coast. The sea views are stunning from the pool and the sun lounging area and the rooms are clean and beautifully turned out.

The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very nice. The yards and the water are stunningly beautiful. We will be sure to stay there again when we go back to Zanzibar and we will also tell our friends.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Zanzibari. We felt welcome and home from the first minute. The property is beautiful and super quiet. You can walk on the beach to Nungwi or Kendwa when the tide is low or take a taxi/motobike for just a few dollars. The staff is super friendly, always smiling and very attentive. It is a rather small hotel with only few rooms so you feel like a little family. We definitely recommend staying at The Zanzibari and Zanzibar in general. Just a beautiful island with wonderful people

Nice property. Beach right in front (can swim during high tide). Spotless clean room. Staff very friendly everywhere. Good breakfast. Restaurant a bit overpriced. Small fridge in the room would have been nice.
