We stayed over 5 nights in zanzibar. Needless to say we were clueless with the routes ways and best things to do. Thats where their manager/owner stepped in. Extremely friendly and helpful chap always trying to forsee what we might need and trying his best to help us in every possible way. Simply loved the zanzibar experience! !

Stayed for several days with five friends in Furaha just out of Stonetown. The rooms are fantastic and comfortable. The resort, staff and food are fantastic, especially Hussein. Furaha is underpriced from the quality of the accomadtion and is highly recommended.
