My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and had a great time. The hotel grounds are beautiful and very well kept which makes for a very relaxing setting. The rooms are tidy and well equipped, the beds are comfortable and the decoration is very traditional and quaint. The best features are easily the pool which has a truly stunning view over the ocean and the staff who are all so friendly and really made us feel welcome. Our flight wasn't until 10pm on the day we left and after requesting a later check out, the manager arranged for us to be moved to the apartment suite for the day so that we had more space and time to get organised. It was really a very generous touch.
If you're looking for a relaxing getaway spot then this is definitely the hotel for you.

The staff was very helpful and kind. The rooms were very clean and peaceful. The grounds are clean and beautiful. I enjoyed every meal at the hotel. This hotel is great for a quiet getaway. The hotel isn't far from Kendwa beach where you can swim easily with rocks.

Hotel Zanzibari is a small and intimate hotel. The staff provides personal and dedicated service to guests. For example: we had changes in flight time and the crew helped us in dealing with the local branches of the company.The hotel area is well kept and landscaped. The rooms are clean and well kept. The beach near the hotel is clean and beautiful and the stay at the hotel is very pleasant. I recommend the place and the good atmosphere it produces.

The Zanzabari was great! Very peaceful and it felt like it was just for us. The only drawback is that it was quite a ways from the main beach (some might call that a plus!!) Food was great. Service was better! Rooms were spot on. 5 stars

This cute small boutique hotel is a total gem. Beautiful beach front and can swim straight out at high tide. Sunrises are amazing. Pool is perfect size and very few people around. Great for a more relaxing and private holiday. The village is a short walk away 20mins however low tide with seaweed stink isn’t so fun. Lol
The staff are beyound nice and friendly. Housekeepers are exceptional. Much better than a 5 star clone hotel.
