Perfect end to our honeymoon
My wife and I stayed for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon after being in South Africa for 10 non- stop days! Everything from the first to the last day was perfect. We were all inclusive in a garden bungalow. We started everyday day with a private yoga session on our balcony followed by breakfast then paddle boarding, snorkelling and sailing..! We also went jogging and hired the electric scooters to explore the nearby villages. All the staff can’t do enough to make sure you’re happy and nothing is too much trouble. The entertainment each night is great and I organised private dining for our anniversary which was complete with fairly lights and banana leaves in arches over the table, very special! Would definitely recommend this amazing hotel to anyone who loves great food and high level of service, loves beautiful gardens and stunning beaches. But also if you like to do activities during the day it’s perfect as there’s so much to do within the resort and around Zanzibar! We left feeling very relaxed and spoilt, this hotel is everything you could dream about, honestly!

Positives: - Food was tasty and they were super accommodative when it came to modifications. Vegetables were always nicely cooked! - Rooms were spacious and well kept - Service was professional and on point - Free yoga classes were a nice unexpected perk - The use of paper straws instead of plastic was nice to see - Scheduling day trips was easy and efficient - Complimentary room service was great Negatives: - The shows at dinner can become a touch long and loud, especially as they happen every night. - We were under the impression that the resort was 18+ but there were quite a few children/teens/families staying there. - Not many other towns/food options in the area which is fine because the food at Tulia was more than enough
