We booked 3 nights at Sahari but ended up staying 6 nights. Absolutely loved this place. Such a relaxing atmosphere. If you want to get lost in time this is definitely the place to stay. Friendly staff, nice rooms and extremly beautiful surroundings. The only minus is the beach - not the best place to swimm but that is out their hands and the pool makes up for this. We don’t remember the last time we were this relaxed after staying at Sahari.
Beautiful hotel on the beach, has also pool and good food, this place is amayzing and I recomand to everyone who wants to spend perfect time in a perfect place....just love it...it s like heaven on earth. The ocean is lovely, the locals here very open welcoming , everything is wonderfull a piece of heaven on earth
We booked 4 nights at Sahari and absolutely loved staying there. The room was perfect, very clean and comfortable. It had AC and all the amenities one needs for a perfect stay. The breakfast space is right on top of the beach while having views to the beautiful pool as well. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the staff is kind and helpful. Massage is also great! Special thank you to Riccardo and Giuseppe that helped out with anything we needed.
We spent 7 beautiful days in Sahari hotel. All that sounds of rustling palms and the roar of the waves in the distance makes this hotel ideal for writing a book or movie scenary. The stuff are friendly and servisable, food in restorant are tasty and delicious, smothies and coctails the same. Hotel is half hour walking from popular Paje beach. The tide is enormous here and it can be interesting and anoying at same time.
We loved so much this place , even if we didn’t stay there. We found this place just right after we arrived in Zanzibar and we feel sorry didnt find it earlier … the food is amazing !! And Giuseppe is such a nice person and great manager ! Thank you for everything !
Our stay was perfect. The staff are friendly and helpful. The manager is a lovely Italian man who is always willing to assist any way he can. The rooms are clean and have all of the necessary amenities. We will definitely go back and highly recommend to anyone.
We spent a few days at the Sahari with a family of 4 in two double rooms. The hotel is a cosy, beautiful place right at the beach, tucked among other similar beachfront properties in the middle of a local village. The rooms were nice and clean, airconditioning worked perfectly, wifi was very good and reliable for Zanzibar standards. The place is child friendly and animal friendly, with pet cats roaming the grounds. The hotel restaurant is particularly nice, with great local and Italian dishes (the owner's Italian and a super nice guy), including oven-baked pizza. The staff speaks good English, is friendly and communicative. We had some minor issues but they were quickly solved, overall a very good stay!
Nice public areas with amazing WIFI throughout, the restaurant had panoramic views over the bay Lack of service for a four-star hotel, we had to get our own water as none was provided in the room upon arrival (apart from a menacing sign saying we'll be charged for bringing in external food/drinks) nice open public areas, but the rooms felt a little small. 'Sea view' was a bit of a joke, yes you could see the sea through the forest and past the main restaurant, but not from the room. Breakfast was terrible, yes we arrived at 9am for a 10am cut-off. Were served 3 fruit slices then saw in the corner a breakfast buffet ( I haven't seen a buffet since Covid happened) so were hesitant to say the least. Was less impressed by the empty trays that greeted us, empty eggs, empty beans, empty sausages, empty spinach. No bowels for the cereal. Made ourselves some instant coffee and grabbed all the remaining stale croissants there were, and sat down. Day 2: got 2x electric shocks off the toaster :( The pizza was good but said mozzarella on the menu, it’s not mozzarella... We were given 2x beach towel tokens at reception and informed to collect and return beach towels every day for cleaning. It seemed like the hotel doesn't have enough to go around and was rationing towels out to guests. The towels themselves were bleach stained and a little worse for wear. There's an abundance of cats around the hotel that also seem to live there so if you like cats great if you don’t or are allergic be warned! During our stay they were also carrying out some reservations or building an additional room above the bar area next to the pool so there was constant hammering, banging and construction noise throughout the day. Manager? Spent more time lounging around the bar/lounge/restaurant area in jeans chatting with his mates drinking wine. Choice of background music for restaurant/bar area: classical? jazz? Beach house music? No! Rap about pimps and hoes? Yes! Edit: they did manage to rectify the music choice during our stay by switching to Spotify (free version with ad breaks lol) Could be great but settled for mediocre…
+The pool is wow! Very exotic! +good security-a gay keeps an eye to the pool and another to auto gate +staff nice and friendly +wi fi very good +large bed în the room with protection for mosquito +good food, in special the fish- catch of the day, great pizza and great fruit smoothie +area is safe and locals friendly, nice to observe the ordinary life of locals -the fridge make a terrible sound în the night:)
By far our best stay in Zanzibar and we have been in different hotels for the last two months. Great room with tv live football, great internet for Zanzibar, fridge and air con. The restaurant food is bloody great, my girlfriend is a foodie and we ate here most days. The owner is a great guy so welcoming and friendly.. the beach location is beautiful and a short walk to more life with Paje.. this is top of my list when we return.. if it’s available book it.... Before it goes haha...
