Beautiful hotel situated right on the beach with a great restaurant and wonderful staff who can't do enough for you. We spent a week there on our honeymoon and loved it.

Fair 4.0
The staff were very nice. The beach is beautiful.The views are amazing.The food was overpriced though.There was no water at night and the wifi was weak. The manager had a condescending attitude. Most of the hotel needs an upgrade.

Beautifully and creatively decorated/built, gorgeous, easily accessible and swimmable beach, friendly and very accomodating staff. I got a free upgrade to one of the beach side rooms and it was sublime, a very dreamy vacation for a very good price. It’s a bit buggy, but they take care to spray rooms and leave spray for you. No air conditioning but it isn’t much of a problem bc the breeze at night is cool. The room is hospitable, they thought of all the details. So many places to sit and look out at the beach. Food is good and enough variety for prices. I would love to come back again.

Beautiful location & amazingly attentive staff
Seasons Lodge is situated on the most stunning beach on the East Coast of Zanzibar. The bungalows look out on to the ocean & the view is breathtaking. ALL the staff are so attentive but not intrusive & the food albeit is a limited menu is delicious, however by request they will conjure up anything you fancy. This is a quiet, relaxing place which is hard to come by. The beach is luxuriously quiet & rare, my partner & I had the most amazing memorable time & we will definitely return. Many thanks to all the staff at seasons lodge who made are stay simply perfect.

This hotel was wonderful.
I’m able to say that the beach was temporarily my backyard. The staff at Seasons Lodge Zanzibar are some of the most respectful, polite, hospitable people I’ve ever met. I received queen treatment during my stay. Housekeeping was excellent. I’ll definitely tell my friends about this hotel. I want to come back ASAP.

Restful retreat.
Beautifully designed with a real wow factor when you arrive to your room, I instantly fell in love with place and really enjoyed the privacy offered. Great pool bar, lovely food and friendly service. Well worth the trip.

The rooms — amazing. The setting — amazing. The views — amazing. All for a reasonable price. You will feel like it is something you could easily get used to but there is one major thing that lets it down — the staff. They are friendly and welcoming but lack training and the level of English one would expect for somewhere like this. Even if you used Swahili, they still aren't that great. Pole pole (slowly slowly) is one thing but they take the biscuit. Service is painfully slow at times and attentiveness is non-existent, especially if you're trying to explain life threatening dietary requirements. The food isn't bad but again could be way better. Having said this, the staff's broad smiles just about make up for it. Housekeeping staff were phenomenal and made the room feel like new every time. On the room, it's comfortable and the view magical but it feels dated and could do with modernisation. The bath is a nice touch, though. Seasons nearly has it all but is let down by the finer details, which, if you're not too bothered, won't spoil your stay but, if you're looking for something truly special, there are plenty of other options in the vicinity although you'd likely pay more..

Le seasons lodge propose des cottages sur le front de mer vraiment parfait pour un voyage de noces. Nous avons passé un séjour paradisiaque. Le personnel est toujours disponible et souriant. Ils contribuent à chaque instant à ce que l’on passe un agréable séjour. Les repas sont toujours très bon, ils ont un excellent chef.

superbe endroit
l’hôtel est composé de petites maisonnettes individuelles en pierre et en bois, magnifiques, avec une vue imprenable sur l’océan indien. Les chambres sont spacieuses (il y a même un dressing) En prime, le personnel de l’hôtel est hyper accueillant, aux petits soins ; l'équipe est vraiment adorable. Je recommande fortement cet hôtel et si j'ai l'occasion de revenir sur Zanzibar je n'hésiterai pas une seconde à repartir au Seasons Lodge
