This is a delightful resort on one of the best beaches on the east coast of Zanzibar. It is built in traditional island style and provides a relaxing stay together with great service and accommodation.
A path in front of the hotel leads to a natural depression in the ocean, making it possible to swim in the sea, even during low tide; it is one of the only hotels on the east coast of Zanzibar where this is possible.
There are a multitude of activities for all to enjoy, or if you just wish to relax and unwind you will be spoilt for choice. The beautiful beach is perfect to stroll on, two swimming pools to laze around and the tranquil Samawati Spa in which to indulge yourself.
