This hotel was in all very good. The rooms were so quiet and dark and room service was great. What impressed me was the cleanliness of the room.
The daily newsletters were such a nice touch with the activities for the day, weather and information as well as the newspaper.
The main Restaurant was great too lots of food variety. The Pizza, Pasta and Wok stations were excellent. Being Italian I am very fussy. I would just recommend more big fresh fish served as well as some sort of thing to combat the flies at lunch time when eating outside. Also waitresses seem to be too in your face with repetitive phrases like 'you ok, you are welcome'. I prefer to be left alone while eating for a bit. Otherwise service is good at restaurants.
The carnivore restaurant was outstanding. A steak house. As South Africans we know our meat!
The romantic beach barbecue dinner was also excellent with the fresh line fish and desert being tops.
The beach and pool area was too beautiful and tranquil. With fresh fruit offered as snacks and a lovely beach and pool bar for drinks.
The gala dinner they have on a Friday night underneath the stars was such a highlight with a great live band playing famous oldies!
The gym and the spa were amazing. My full body massage was incredible. Aisha has great hands. Asante sana!
Public toilets were always so nice and clean. I was amazed even when they were busy.
The only thing was the wifi signal was not great but you are on holiday and if needed the Internet room was perfect with Internet being efficient.
Sometimes the staff struggle to understand your every need but hey it is Zanzibar and I can't speak Swaheli. So their efforts were perfect.
The one problem on the island which we noticed are the Indian crows which are alien pests to Zanzibar. Apparently there is a project underway to eradicate them. This would be welcomed!
In all this hotel for only being open this year was spectacular and I would definitely return.
Relaxation to the MAX!
