After having climbed the Kilimanjaro during an 8-day arduous but thrilling climb, we were ready to rest and relax for a few days before heading back to reality. We flew directly from Kilimanjaro (JRO) to Zanzibar with Precision Air and in less than 90' arrived in paradise. Once arrived, the Melia driver picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel, 45' later. We had arrived in paradise!
The GM, Cesar and his head of F&B, Nicolas, waited for us and gave us such a royal welcome before being escorted to our villa, which was absolutely amazing. A massive living room, bedroom (with a gorgeous posted bed), bathroom with exterior jungle shower and an incredible pool in your own private yard with the ocean in the background. We could not have dreamt about this!! It was perfect.
The service was amazing (people are so friendly, they pick you up in a golf cart and take you anywhere you like to go); the food absolutely delicious in the several restaurants, and the atmosphere whether at the Gabi Beach or at the jetty bar was truly exceptional.
We cannot wait to get back, and would highly recommend it to all couples who are looking for some indulgence after climbing one of the seven peaks!!
Thank you SO much, Cesar and Nicolas!!!
