We stayed here for six nights. The hotel is set on a cliff above a gorgeous reef and very close to endless white sand beaches (in both directions). The grounds are very large and green making it super easy to relax. The staff are all very helpful and went out of their way to ensure we had a brilliant stay. We ate regularly at the sea food restaurant, Aqua, which is so good we kept going back - worth visiting the restaurant for a romantic and/ or delicious meal even if not staying at the hotel. On Friday nights the hotel organizes a Swahili night on the beach - A beautiful setting, great food and five amazing acrobats as entertainment.
Our room was very spacious with a sunny balcony, comfy bed, outside shower and huge bathroom. Other amenities including two beautiful infinity pools, tennis, table tennis and a well equipped gym. The only slight negative was the very slow internet in the communal areas and in the room (and there is an extra charge for wifi in our room). We would highly recommend the resort and its staff to anyone looking for some luxury whilst in Zanzibar.
