  • Zanzibar’s Finest

    Before writing this I read a few of the previous reviews and to be honest there is not much more I can say. This resort is truly special. Private, tranquil, beautiful – a refuge from the world and a place where you can truly unwind.

    The max capacity is 24 guests so you never feel as though it is busy and personal attention by the staff is second to none.

    The villa’s are spacious and modern and I loved them because they feel so private.

    This is a 5 star luxury resort that feels like a home – can’t wait to return

  • Amazing Luxury

    We stayed for 3 nights at Zawadi Hotel and everything was just about perfect. The room was amazing – very large and clean and fresh. The room had a beautiful patio with a view over the Indian Ocean and lounge chairs from which to enjoy the view. The bathroom in the room was enormous and also very clean. The food was amazing and the service was excellent – friendly, professional, and helpful.
