Well positioned hotel with great sea views
Posted Mar 9, 2015
It was our 40th wedding anniversary and a great place to stay, very comfortable, relaxed, good amenities and very helpful staff. A nice touch were jasmine flowers on the bedside table the night of our anniversary, also an unexpected bonus was the free shuttle up the coast from Stone Town to their private beach. They provided a driver just for the 2 of us as there were no others going that day. However we discovered the beach was not that great for swimming given the number of rocks -Aussies are spoilt for beaches, but they did provide diving shoes to protect our feet and it was great having a beach all to ourselves with attentive staff to provide food and drinks in the middle of nowhere, with shade and towels as well.
The room was quite cramped, but well appointed with a massive bed and super comfy pillows, small bathroom, not somewhere you could easily lounge, but a great balcony overlooking the pool and sea where you could relax. Breakfast buffet was included, plentiful, tasty with plenty of choice and again on the morning of our anniversary pink sparkling wine provided complimentary. A nice touch as we sat by the open window drinking in the Indian Ocean as well.
