Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had an amazing time away, staying for 12 nights at this stunning hotel. Which is located within lush tropical gardens with a beautiful white sandy beach which went for miles, along with a stunning reef to explore. All the staff looked after you brilliantly always making sure you were OK and wanting to go the extra mile to make your stay even more perfect. We fancied a fresh coconut to drink on our last day and they had run out of them, so one of the gardeners climbed a coconut palm, so we could have our fresh coconut to drink. The hotel is kept scrupulously clean, with excellent attention to detail, as each night your room is sprayed, mosquito nets pulled round and beds turned down with a card wishing you a goodnight. The food was good, my only gripe would be there were too many spicy Indian dishes to chose from. It would have been good to have more simple dishes and a good selection of seafood on the menu. The freshly baked bread and soups were delicious. The guest rooms are really stunning, well appointed and co-ordinated in soft blues along with being very comfortable!

I have so many wonderful things to say about this place, I could write a book. The location is so breathtaking my goodness. I was received at the reception by the manager Mr. Adi who was always available and consistently checked up on me throughout my stay to ensure I was comfortable and okay and if I needed anything. This was so important to me because as a solo female, I felt my safety was ensured. The staff were all so pleasant and most importantly looked happy to serve. Big hugs to Abdul, the pool attendants and the games team who always were happy to take pictures of me and indulge me in a card game or Bao game. The rooms are beautiful and very spacious. The bed is extremely comfortable and huge. Cleaning was done in a daily and complimentary water is not only given in the room but also served during meals. It was a pleasant surprise when the turn in lady offered to assist me in packing my clothes on my last day to ensure I wasn't stressed which was like a miracle to me. To put icing on the cake, I was surprised with a delicious chocolate cake to celebrate my birthday. The spa is amazing and I recommend the me time treatment. That scrub left my skin feeling like a baby's bum 😁 The meals are all delicious with the service team ready to carry your plate to your table and get you anything you need. There is also variety and throughout the stay we had courtesy fruits and dessert in between meals which I thought was super great. During dinner there is entertainment which also sets a good ambience. I enjoyed the saxophone tunes alot. The pool is beautiful and so is the beach which is extremely clean and weeded everyday. I especially was grateful to the security who wanned off any unwanted attention from people passing by. Check out was as smooth as check in and in case you need transport or any tours organised, the hotel is able to do that. I also loved that they had activities throughout the day to ensure you are well preoccupied.
I would recommend this place a million times over. It really is a slice of paradise and more.

If you have been to Zanzibar, you know what I am talking about. This Resort is Luxury resort and amazing facilities. My family and I stayed at this location for three days and it was a stay in Haven. Starting with the staff as you walk in you get greeted at the gate by the security (this is before you get to the main lobby). As you get off the car, the concierge team comes to welcome you and take care of your luggage. You walk in the main lobby and you get handed a nice warm towel to wash you hands and face with a glass of juice. Then you get introduced to the guest relations person who checks you in, I would say this was an amazing experience. The guess relation person Anne walked us and guided us to our rooms and helped us with Wi-Fi to connect our devices.
Our rooms were not ready yet, so we got offered to go to have lunch and then we got to our room. In the room there was a beautiful treat of pastry.
The guest relation is huge and they all work together, since I climb Kilimanjaro I wanted to get massage done. Our guest relation manager Levine came to arrange for spa time for us.
Tell me about the spa time OMG! It was amazing and relaxing. I had soft tissue massage, hot stones and facial which was out of ordinary for me. I definitely dosed off for good 30 min.
Let’s talk about food and it’s selections, Marco who is in-charge of Kitchen and food for guests, he was amazing. My daughter wanted to eat French fries, they special ordered it for her and brought it to our room. The bar, the swimming pool, the house keeping all the services at this location were above 200%. During our stay the General Manage came by multiple times to check in with us to make sure we were doing good. I highly recommend this location to all my friends and family.

Special shout out to Marco, Levine, Anne, Rose from house keeping team and GM Aditya Mata.
Marijani team I had amazing time and I will come back to again in few years. Keep up the good work. Thank you all.

When Arab’s influences meet Zanzibari’s designs it creates a refined architectural environment called Marijani Beach Resort and Spa: an amazing landscape, gorgeous gardens, a beautiful beach with spotless white fine sand, turquoise blue sea, and fabulous stylish rooms.
* The staff was really kind and helpful. (Specially Rose).
~> con: It was unfortunate that their (the majority of the staff) english for some was limited as it made communication a bit difficult.
* Special thanks to the GM mr Aditya Mata for making my stay very cozy and comfortable.
* The food was also very fresh and delicious, abundant and well prepared. Service along was done with warm hospitality.
~> con: the food was a bit salty.
=> suggestion: to be able to have a fresh barbecue menu with seafood and meats.
My personal inputs will be:
* Informations: such as the fees the hotel charges per client per day must be included and shared with the client before booking.
* You should clean, maintain more and makes adequate arrangements (such as making your shoreline or beach face flat and more accessible).
* It would have been great to find your spa offers a sauna or a hammam treatment and your staff there well trained as many lack practices regarding waxing treatments.
Overall, I did enjoy my stay at the hotel and I would definitely recommend Marijani to anyone looking for a quiet and safe retreat.
Thank you for having me,
Asante sana,
Regards.

A stunning resort! Our Villa was beautiful, spacious and facing the ocean. The happiest vibe overall. The service was immaculate. The room was made up twice a day, in the evenings they’d set a mosquito net around the bed which made the vibe even more romantic. Also, the staff.. I’ve yet to meet friendlier staff anywhere! We were greeted with the warmest welcomes and the most beautiful smiles. The breakfast and dinner buffets were wonderful. Aditya the GM was very kind and made sure we were very well taken care of. The resort truly felt like home.

The infinity pool is wonderful, the beach is a stunning white sand and the water a beautiful light blue. Catching the sunrise and sunset is such a treat, the resort plays host to beautiful birds and it’s musical!
This resort is perfect for everyone but especially couples. It’s for laying back, relaxing, and enjoying the flavours and colours of Zanzibar in the lap of luxury.

Watch out for the folks on the beach, some pretending to be Masai’s and some in regular clothes. We didn’t get much peace because of them, they would always begin conversations with a hello or a Hakuna Matata and then proceed to try to sell us something. We got a good deal on a tour etc but after a couple of days it became too much, pro tip: don’t engage in conversation and politely let them know you’re not interested right from the beginning.

Pack a lot of sunscreen! It’s very difficult to find a known-brand sunscreen and the one I ended up buying didn’t protect me from a horrendous burn.

We will definitely return.

Our stay was to a maximal satisfaction. The hotel is beautifully designed, has a slight Indian touch, and has fantastic greenery around the whole complex. The food is prepared in a buffet style, however, it is of a high quality comparable to a'la carte experience. The location of the hotel is in the rather more quiet area of the north-east part of the island, which we considered to be an advantage, because it is not so touristy (compared to Nungwi). There is also a small village right behind the hotel, so you can buy some fresh fruits from the local sellers. The beach front is really nice as well, perhaps a high/low tide schedule for the guests would be helpful, as it changes frequently. While there is a low tide, you can enjoy the pool which is of a great size.
If you wish to go for trips, there is a tourist/travel agency desk available, however we found their services a little overpriced. They provided great and safe service, but at a quite high cost.
The staff were really nice, and the GM of the hotel is fantastic! He is very accommodating, mingles with the guests, makes sure that everything is working properly - truly great example of leadership. Thanks to that we think that the staff is also always in a good mood and seems to be happy to work at this hotel.

Marijani is an outstanding resort. From the well decorated reception area to its beautiful and lush gardens to the amazing beach and ocean view, the resort transports you to a little paradise. Our room was spacious to accommodate to 2 adults and a child and was kept clean at regular intervals across the day.

The food at Marijani is in a class of its own. On each day, we were presented with a well-thought out menu with great options and the result was a true 5-star experience!

Most importantly, the staff at Marijani were incredibly friendly and made us feel at home for our 5-day stay.

Our stay at lux Marijani was incredible! The staff here were so friendly and always checked if everything was right. Our room was upgraded to delux with sea view as we were celebrating our honeymoon, rooms were always kept clean and mosquito nets pulled round our bed whilst out for dinner. The buffet food was delicious and was always lots of choice, the waiters and staff were so attentive, Abdul and issak in particular were our favourite waiters, always making us laugh and making sure we were okay. Sherif the activity guy was hilarious , always joking around and getting us involved in water aerobics and water polo, he also took us on a reef walk to see the star fish and nemo. The only slight thing would be, the all inclusive wasn’t too clear in terms of what was included and what wasn’t. The bottled soft drinks where not in the all inclusive category on the menu but were told on checkout it’s included in all inclusive and margarita pizza was included from the pool bar but we were unaware of this. These are very minor things.. Apart from that we loved our stay at Lux marijani and can’t wait to come back again. Thanks kym & Sammy

From the moment my wife and I arrived at Lux Marijana Resort for our week-long stay, we were enveloped in a world of exceptional hospitality and beauty. The staff greeted us with the warmest of smiles, setting the tone for what was to be a delightful stay.

The resort itself is a sight to behold, with meticulously maintained grounds and interiors that speak volumes of the daily cleaning and turn-down services provided. Our room was a comfortable haven, refreshed each day to ensure the highest level of comfort.

Dining at the resort was a pleasure with a plethora of options available, catering to a wide range of tastes and dietary preferences. The food was not only plentiful but also deliciously satisfying.

A special mention must go to Saf, whose dedication and attention to detail made our stay particularly special. He went above and beyond to ensure all guests, including us, felt cared for and valued. His efforts to celebrate my wife’s birthday were beyond our expectations, with a beautifully decorated room and a surprise birthday treat that truly made her day memorable.

The entire staff deserves applause for their kindness, warmth, and positive energy. They truly understand what it means to make guests feel welcome and cherished.

I cannot recommend Lux Marijana Resort enough. If you are considering a stay here, expect to be treated to a world-class experience that will leave you looking forward to your next visit. Thank you to everyone at Lux Marijana for a fantastic week!

I spent with my family a wonderful 7 days in amazing hotel LUX* Marijani Zanzibar. I would like to thank all employees from this hotel for creating for us a great holiday, specificaly restaurant employee Jasmine and Nora who were very kind and always helpful with smile on her faces.

Room was spacious, everyday perfectly cleaned, bathroom was equiped with cosmetics with no colorants, parabens, which was really positive.

Beach was also nice. What we appreciate a lot was, that hotel staff brought drinks to us from bar to the beach, which was very comfortable.
If you want to serve yourself, you can also drink water in glass barells, there are few option - cold water, water with specific fruit (watermelon, pineapple, citruses).

Meal was also delicious and the range was sufficient, very juicy ant tasty beef, chicken, sea food and meal for vegetarian. We also enjoyed coctails, were so delicious!

I also like the size of the hotel, becase everything is close to you and there is no need to walk a lot if you dont want.

Special thanks belongs to manager from reception, Anne. She is very kind and helpful, fullfilling our wishes.

I highly recommend this hotel❤️🤩🌞
