Heaven

The place is on a breathtaking beach like a postcard. Too difficult to get to and prices for drinks and food is a little high. Not many rooms with AC. Friendly staff.

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort

    Enjoyable stay, good food and friendly staff. Beautiful location and plenty of beach activities. Lock on our door wasn’t secure and Villa 3 wasn’t as nice as Villa 1 - there was a room that was unfinished. Otherwise probably one of the best places to stay in Zanzibar.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    A nice place to unwind, the views are excellent, the resort is co friendly, so no TV, coffee makers in the rooms, Wi-Fi is limited to reception area. The food is good but slightly over priced.. The beach is the best part of the resort, not crowded , and clean and very few beach boys.
