I got to stay in Zanzibar Beach Resort hotel and my only regret is that my visit was too short!
The hotel was very close to the airport which was so convenient as this was just a 1 night stay :(.
The room was spacious and well decorated in old Swahili style with a modern twist. The swimming pool was excellent.
My favorite part was dinner in their seafood restaurant. I had THE BEST LOBSTER OF MY LIFE (in a white wine sauce).
I had to tell the chef personally. And very affordable too. The staff was polite and very attentive and the evening entertainment was sublime.
Too bad I was traveling alone because it is a very romantic place.
The hotel is also close to the Old stone town and spice markets which was also convenient for my short stay.
Be sure to buy some Vanilla, Cinnamon and Saffron!! I wasn't able to make it to see any dolphins or travel to Nungwi- which I hear is superb and a must do.
Zanzibar Beach resort is on the beautiful white sand stretches of Matemwe Beach, on the North East coast of Zanzibar Island.
Protected by a natural coral reef and surrounded by the crystal blue temperate waters of the Indian Ocean, this unspoilt paradise destination is ideal for all forms of water sports and activities.
All rooms at the resort are ensuite and most have balconies blending perfectly with the landscape gardens.
They are also equipped with airconditioning, telephone, minifridge, hair-dryer, safe vaults and 21" Colour T.V.
With such a diverse past, Zanzibar is also known for its wealth of incredible cultural and architectural riches.
A visit to the nearby Stone Town may also be arranged and could also include a tour of the island's many spice plantations, with a local guide at hand conducting the tour.
Zanzibar Beach Resort is located on the North East coast of Zanzibar. The hotel is a 35 km from Stone town.
The hotel consists of 55 Standard Rooms, 13 Ocean View Chalets and 2 Suites
