Can't say enough about the place, the staff, the beach, the food, the service. Low key luxury, quiet, comfortable, total relaxation, hauntingly beautiful. It's like being alone on a desert island with a butler at your beck and call. Definitely coming back.More

Fairly relaxed and casual. Taxi journey is about an hour from airport. Not the best road at night!!! I would get White Sand villas to organise transfers if possible. Enjoy!

The electric plugs are like the European two pronged ones that fit in places like France. We took our universal ones and they fitted. You will love the Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas! Best lobster on the beach!!!
