Marafiki Beach Hotel - Anza

Hotel in Matemwe

Located on Matemwe Beach, Marafiki Beach Hotel - Anza offers accommodations with a bar, a swimming pool, a garden and a 24-hour front desk for your convenience. The hotel felt new and luxurious all around and the room was very stylish with thoughtful touches with beachfront view which was amazing! The staff was very friendly and welcoming and the food at the restaurant is the best, we ate there almost everyday despite having other options. The hotel is excellent, but keep in mind that it is in Matemwe which is not the busy tourist part of Zanzibar but it is perfect for relaxation away from the crowds. The beach is not the best in Zanzibar but the property is right up the beach so it was beautiful for us. All in all we loved our relaxed and comfortable stay at Marafiki!

Kizikula

Hotel in Kizimkazi

Located in Kizimkazi, an 8-minute walk from Kizimkazi Dimbani Beach, Kizikula has accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, an outdoor swimming pool and a bar. The best hotel I’ve ever been privileged enough to stay at. Gorgeous building, and it only gets more breathtaking when you walk in. We had a wonderful experience at the Kizikula. Every staff member I encountered, from the valet to the check- in to the cleaning staff were delightful and eager to help! Most people have had a vacation on their life that, they will always remember because of the people. The staff working at Kizikula is that kind of people. For us, this will remain a good memory forever. Thank you, and especially to Christian who did an excellent job making our stay more comfortable.

Featuring a bar, garden and views of garden, Babalao Bungalows is located in Nungwi, a few steps from Nungwi Beach. Babalao Bungalows is literally 2 minutes walk to one of the most pristine beaches on earth and to all to restaurants and shops in Nungwi offers. The bungalow has everything you need: wifi, ac, hot water, a fridge, toiletries, white crispy clean sheets and Zanzibar vibe. Ahmet, Max and Elena are great hosts and everyone working at the property especially Samsun and Nazla are very friendly. We were hosted like a family members rather than the hotel guests. I suggest that you stop strolling the reviews and book your room. You will not find any better place than Babalao. We will definitely come back! BTW there is a great chef in the house. Don’t miss the yummy food.
