“A real paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

It was a wonderful experience. Hotel is beautiful, cosy, romantic, with not too many rooms, so you can still enjoy privacy. It is located directly on the beach, where you can see amazing changes of the tide and when there is a low tide you can even walk all the way to the coral reef. There are also two swimming pools where you can swim when the tide is too low to swim in the ocean.
Staff is amazing and they do everything to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

There is a Wi-Fi connection everywhere in the hotel free of charge.
Room was very beautiful, clean nicely decorated and spacious with air conditioning and fan.

Definitely a place worth visiting!!

Room Tip: all rooms are beautiful, but it is worth paying little ekstra to stay in one of the bungalows which...

Excellent service, excellent accommodation, excellent location... Nothing much to add...
Service: We requested pick-up at the airport, but plane was delayed... Driver waited for us from 3 PM to midnight. We then drove for about 45 minutes to hotel where we were greeted by reception staff. Kitchen was kept open in case we were hungry, so was the bar... Was dead tired but could do with a little whisky... This is a good example of outstanding service.
Accommodation: We booked one of the bungalow on the south side of the hotel. Really good idea, as there is a separate pool mostly for the bungalows (four of them). As wwe went in during low season, we had the pool all for ourselves. The buungalow where really tastfully decorated and very (but really) comfortable. We spent most of the time on our terrace overlooking the pool and the beach a few paces away.
Location: It is a bit further away (still a walking distance) from other larger resorts. Which is good as you do not get all the beach merchants or tour sellers.... All you need for a quiet stay.

Perfect location for couple, definitely not a solo destination though...

Room Tip: Definitely worth spending little extra to get a bungalow with more privacy.

We had part of our summer vacation.
This was our first trip to Africa, så we were quite excited.

The place in itself was beautyfull!
Very secluded, and simple.
The staff was incredible.
Very helpfull, and nothing was ever a problem (or even a question).

Rooms were pretty spacey, with a little "vranda" in front of the ddor, where you could relax in the evning/after lunch, or if you got to tired of the sun.

The food was great, but maybe a little limited in choice at breakfast.
The menu is pretty good, and not too expencive (since everything gets charged to room).
Did I mention that the staff was awsome? =)

The beach was beautyfull!!
Even though it was not possible to swim untill the tide came up in the afthernoon, it was a pleasure just walking up and down.
(The pool worked just as well =)

There were lot of activities, hat are all bookable trough reception.
Whatever you get, gets charged to room.
Prices range from 45-65 euros.

We had a cupple of trips to different beaches, snorkeling, etc.

The only downsize with the place is that is kinda remote from everything, så you need to get a cab to get to other beaches/Stone Town.

I also want to share cuppla things with readers (that have nothing to do with Next Paradise):

First off, have all valuables in your backpack that you take on the plane.
While transferring baggage in Dar es Salaam to a plane that was going to Xanzibar, someone opened our suitcases and stole our camera.

If you have pre-booked tickets with Precision Air, dubble and tripple-check that they actually have recived bookings several days before you are going to/from Zanzibar.
On our way to and from Zanzibar, thay could not find our reservations (since most of everything is manual on the island).
So we had to buy new tickets, and we almost missed flight out of there.
Luckily, the staff were more that helpfull and we made it (by 6 minutes).

We stayed in the family room facing the beach with a huge veranda and a small piece of 'your' own sand lot. Great for building sand castles for the kids. The room is actually 2 rooms, Nice when you travel with children. Very Nice pools and extremely good and helpful staff. Our daughter needed medical assistance and within 15 minutes Daniella had arranged a belgian doctor to arrive. Great service with everything, they made very Nice food for our daughter instead of what was ón todays menu. Very Nice and laid back type of place.

Room Tip: Choose beach front family room if you have children, otherwise every room is situated fine, due to t...

Next Paradise is really what We were expecting to find when joining the mighty island of Zanzibar.
Small luxury hotel, delicious food, very kind and efficient staff.
We would recommend this place for people who, like us, hate big tourist industrial hotels.
The decoration is nicely arranged and you can feel the taste of the owner/founder of this beautiful place every step you make.
All details are brilliantly thought.
The chief surprised us every evening and we enjoyed every single minute we spent there.
A very good location as well.
The perfect place.

Really good stay- service was very good, rooms were clean and quiet, beach was fabulous, and the food... Well, the food was the best part of all- fantastic fresh fish and a great cook. Kite surfing just down the beach, but the beach is more for walking and tanning- too may sea urchins to easily swim. Not much of an issue with the beautiful pool outside, though. The one thing that could have been better were the mattresses- very hard, which some people like, but not us. Overall a very positive experience. Happy to go back if we ever find ourselves in Zanzibar again.

After a week's safari in Tanzania we needed a place to relax, unwind and chill completely. Well the Next Paradise Boutique Resort was this and so much more. From Daniella's initial welcome to our sad departure a week later, everything was perfect. The staff are genuinely friendly and really professional - nothing is too much trouble. We had breakfast on our terrace, dinner on the beach and cocktails by the pool; it was magical.

Our room was spotlessly clean and had air conditioning and a fan to keep you cool. There is a TV, not that we watched it, fridge, wi-fi and a large shower room. The large double bed has a mosquito net that hangs from a ceiling mounted frame that gives the impression of a four poster bed.

We really loved the food, with the evening meal being a four course affair with a strong bias towards freshly caught fish and seafood. The menu goes on the blackboard around 3pm and if you don't like anything then you can ask the chef to cook you something you do like.

The pool is a good size and there is an area devoted to a spa with jets below the water. The pool is an overflow type ensuring that any floating leaf debris is quickly removed. The pool is really clean, just right for cooling down after an hour or two soaking up the heat of the sun on a lounger.

We really cannot recommend this hotel highly enough; my wife and I have a 'golden rule' of "never go back, as there are too many other places in the world to see". This hotel may just break that rule.
