Kizikula

Hotel in Kizimkazi

Located in Kizimkazi, 1.3 mi from The Residence Zanzibar Beach, Kizikula features accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, an outdoor swimming pool and a bar. We had an amazing stay at the intimate resort. The staff is serving gracefully and tends to your personal needs. My partner was having air-conditioning flu which she caught earlier on during our travels so the chefcook provided personally a steaming pot filled with medical herbs and spices from the garden on multiple occasions. The resort is the perfect getaway for a relaxing holiday. The Zanzibar octopus coconut curry was the best we had on the island, and the lunch and dinner menus were carefully chosen by the international renomated chef. The garden is maintained beautifully an adds to the experience. We got what we were looking for and are returning home batteries charged.

COCO REEF ECOLODGE

Hotel in Kizimkazi Beach, Kizimkazi

Located in Kizimkazi, less than 0.6 mi from Kizimkazi Mkunguni Beach, COCO REEF ECOLODGE features accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, a garden and a private beach area. Me and my partner spent 7 nights in this wonderful lodge, and we can honestly say that it has been our best stay ever! Starting from the hosts, Sandrine and David are amazing people, that will immediately make you feel like you are part of the family. Then, the best staff someone can ask for, Zakario, Amis, Atibu and the others, really do everything possible for your comfort, and they are very friendly and fun! When David took us to the room, I told him that it was "the best room I have ever seen in my life", and it is correct! A large room built in traditional style, with materials from the nature, it doesn't get better than this! The breakfast is amazing, large and very fresh. For lunch and dinner, for the whole week we ate there and we didn't want to change to another restaurant because every day it was freshly made and soo delicious, and we couldn't wait to see what there will be next for dinner. There is not a menu, which makes it even better because they make a different lunch and dinner every day, always with fresh fish, meat, vegetables... And finally the whole place is like a little place of heaven, right next to the beach with amazing views, and completely in the nature. So if you want to relax you can, but also if you want to go to a party and have fun you can also go with them. David and the masai in the night make a fireplace in front of the beach with some music which is also amazing experience. Also, don't forget to ask them for tours, they organize the best tours that you don't want to miss. Unfortunately we can't even express with words how wonderful the staff and this lodge is. We have never felt so sad to leave a place. Everyone should visit this paradise at least once in their life! We can't wait to be back! Thank you for everything, Ema and Martin

Passion Boutique Hotel Zanzibar

Hotel in Jambiani Beach, Jambiani

Located in Jambiani, 1640 feet from Jambiani Beach, Passion Boutique Hotel Zanzibar features accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, an outdoor swimming pool and a bar. Our stay at Passion Boutique Hotel has been absolutely amazing and relaxing. The hotel has a great location, surrounded by natural beaches and a few bars and restaurants. Our room had a big balcony along with the greatest view. The hotel has a very familiar atmosphere as the hotel is rather small. There were always enough sunbeds for each guest. In addition we also really liked the effort the hotel takes to reduce plastic waste: they use reusable shampoo bottles and offer a water fountain. The food was phenomenal, they offered one special menu each day for instance beef fillet pasta or fresh seafood. Everything was made fresh and selfmade, the coconuts and cocktails were outstanding. The staff was so nice and courteous. Laura even helped us to organize the covid tests. All in all I can recommend this hotel without any concerns.

SeVi Boutique Hotel

Hotel in Kigomani

Overlooking white-sand beaches and the crystalline waters of the Indian Ocean, SeVi Boutique Hotel is located at the north-east coast of Zanzibar, by the fishing village of Kigomani. I don't really know where to start with this hotel... At SeVi Boutique Hotel it's more of a private beach. We had a horrible trip until we arrived, we had a warm welcome from the staff and Ashraff gave us massages on the house. George (GM) upgraded us to ocean front villas and made our stay amazing! The food is amazing and always freshly made, even the juice is freshly squeezed. The WiFi is very good, didn't have any problems. We celebrated my birthday and the staff baked me a cake, later the whole team danced and sang for me at dinner. They made our bed the day of my birthday with flowers written 'Happy Birthday Nadia' with candles all over the floor ❤️ They also surprised us with pina coladas at our villa. Mnemba Island is very close for snorkeling and it was an amazing experiece. It was so beautiful. The staff is just wonderful, always smiling and eager to help with anything. They definitely get a 10 for cleanliness. They clean non-stop, fresh bedding and towels everyday. I have nothing bad to say about SeVi Boutique Hotel. Sharida, Mary, and Abraham we love you! We will be back soon 😊
