The Residence Zanzibar

Mchangamle, Kizimkazi - Map
"Exquisite location,food,service and villas. "
Splendid in every sense. Cannot fault. Compares very positively to top star world class hotels/residences. We spent four excellent days. Faultless. After leaving the hotel and arriving in Dar es Salam we realised we left a pair of reading glasses. The hotel located these and personally delivered the glasses by ferry in Dar!

Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa

Paje Beach, Paje - Map
"Top relaxation pick! "
The villas were detached from each others and each villa would have certain number of rooms that can have different companies who may shared the living room, a large patio and a fully equipped kitchen. I liked that all of the equipments are modern and at the highest quality. The comfort of the bed was beyond mesure. I asked the front desk to close the pool for extra privacy and they were more than happy to accommodate my request. The chef at the resort has a great Zanzibarian taste with modern twist. We were fourtunate enough to enjoy the half board and the special dinner he prepared. The only problem I encountered was about the final bill statment which had some doubles and Morgane helped in making things straight. I would definitely come again to enjoy the kite center and the nicest beach ever.

Neptune Pwani Beach Resort & Spa - All Inclusive

Pawni Mchangani, Kiwengwa - Map
I am not in the habit of writing personal messages for travel (business or pleasure) that I undertake but in this case I am willing to make an exception. I travelled with my family of 4 to Zanzibar staying at the Neptune resort from July 10 – 23 this year. We encountered some problems in the first few days, specifically, with the hot water provision and so I raised my concerns. We spoke to the General Manager about our concerns. His sense of duty and care towards guests was immediately apparent and he proceeded to resolve matters resulting not only in our complete satisfaction but, in fact, exceeding our expectations of customer service for any top hotel internationally. I am sure his example is one of the primary reasons why the service and pleasantness of the staff generally at the resort is so fantastic.

"AWESOME Staying, great staff and great service"
Sea view is perfect for relaxing and spending quality time at the beach.The staff is available, multi-lingual, and professional. Rooms are spacious and clean. The food, while more expensive than average, is the best you will have in Jambiani. I totally recommend.

Dhow Palace Hotel

Kenyatta Road / Baghani Street, Zanzibar Town 397400 - Map
"Spacious hotel with roof terrace"
This hotel is right by the main stonetown attractions. The room was large. Our balcony was very narrow so wouldn't get any sun and you had to sit facing the wall (like a corridor). The pool was nice to look at but only one end seemed to get sun for a few hours in the middle of the day. Best breakfast we had all holiday. Allowed us to check in early and check out one hour later.

Hakuna Matata Beach Lodge & Spa

Chuini Ruins, Bububu - Map
"Incredible lodge in an idyllic setting!"
My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights after a long safari in mainland Tanzania and 7 nights in the quiet, restful Michamvi. We wanted to stay close to Stone Town, but not in the center as we wanted to relax before the long flight home. Hakuna Matata did not disappoint - it was a beautifully kept lodge, respectful to the natural environment and showcasing the ancient ruins. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the bungalow we stayed in was stunning with a view over the private cove. One of our best nights in Tanzania was having a cocktail on the terrace overlooking the sea, watching thousands of bats fly overhead from Prison Island to Stone Town - a real spectacle! Can't recommend highly enough for a peaceful, luxury break just outside Stone Town.

Sunshine Marine Lodge

Off Mnemba Island Road, Matemwe 4749 - Map
"Wonderful stay at a relaxing and comfortable lodge"
The Sunshine Marine Lodge is a great relaxation escape! The grounds and setting are beautiful and all the rooms enjoy great views. The restaurant is reasonably priced with attentive, polite staff and good food at all times of the day. We sampled a wide range of drinks from the bar which were great. There are plenty of places to relax like hammocks and loungers round the pool. Room furnishings are very comfortable compared to other places we stayed in Tanzania (although this was a higher price range than those others). The snorkelling trip to Mnemba atoll was well worth it even in the rougher weather and we swum with dolphins! We did walk to the beach at low tide and explored the rock pools but spent most of our time chilling out. Allow 3 nights or more as it is a reasonable trip from Stone Town. I recommend that most of your Zanzibar excursions are done from a Stone Town base and then you should come here mainly to relax.
