My husband and I got married in Zanzibar in October 2013 and were joined by 30 friends and family. We had guests traveling from the USA, Europe and Africa and we wanted to find the perfect place that would be comfortable for all guests, non touristy, private, affordable and that had enough space to fit us all and had a/c, a pool, spa and beach frontage. At first it seemed like a lot to ask for to find that perfect place, but after months of extensive research over a year prior to our wedding we decided on Spice Island. My husband and I were in Zanzibar in 2012 and stayed just down the beach from Spice Island at a small bungalow hotel and had gone for a walk one day and came across Spice Island and were blown away by how beautiful it was. When we were doing all of our research it dawned on us to find the place we had come across and low and behold Spice Island met all of our requirements and then some.
Upon initial correspondence with their General Manager, Tina, she was extremely prompt and answered all of my questions. After hundreds of emails and over a year of correspondence she was the absolute BEST to work with. She was beyond just my contact at Spice Island, but became a friend and second wedding planner. She was extremely accommodating to all of our requests and went above and beyond with little details to make ours and our guests have a once in a lifetime experience. She helped coordinate all of our rooming, dinners, special activities at the hotel, off-site activities, transportation, custom menus, decor, etc. When we finally got to meet in person it was like meeting someone I have known for years. She was around the entire week we were there and made sure everything was taken care of and everyone was comfortable and having a great time. Her husband Alex was also incredible and we were fortunate enough to have him be our guide for our Safari Blue trip and he was awesome! A trip not to be missed and one we will remember forever.
Spice Island is the perfect choice if you are looking for amazing service, your own private luxury bungalow, beach access, a stunning Jetty Bar, a massive pool, spa, great selection of food and drinks and if you want pure relaxation and a beach front that is exclusively yours. And with all of this it still only has 17 bungalows (34 rooms total) all very spaced out, so it feels extremely intimate. We love the Southeast part of Zanzibar for a more authentic experience without loads of tourists. Stay here, you won't regret it. And for any future brides and grooms, we highly recommend you choosing Spice Island for your wedding week and don't forget to ask for Tina!
