Incredible, Amazing, I want to go back!
This resort is incredible, the food was like nothing I've had at a hotel in my life, I wish I could have tried more meals as everything on the menu was 5 star. We purchased the all inclusive package and the drinks and alcohol were all top of the line, none of that watered down cheap stuff at other resorts. The staff was beyond kind, respectful, prompt and willing to help in any way they could. I felt pampered and appreciated the entire trip. The resort itself was serene, peaceful and calm. We would have loved to meet more people but everyone seemed quiet and to themselves. It's perfect for a honeymoon. The room was paradise, romantic and spotlessly clean. The beach is beautiful, we made use of the kayaks and had an amazing time. The massages were the most relaxing experience in a beautiful place. We can't wait to go back, this was a dream come true! We miss you all, thank you to everyone who took such wonderful care of us!

Perfect end to our honeymoon
My wife and I stayed for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon after being in South Africa for 10 non- stop days! Everything from the first to the last day was perfect. We were all inclusive in a garden bungalow. We started everyday day with a private yoga session on our balcony followed by breakfast then paddle boarding, snorkelling and sailing..! We also went jogging and hired the electric scooters to explore the nearby villages. All the staff can’t do enough to make sure you’re happy and nothing is too much trouble. The entertainment each night is great and I organised private dining for our anniversary which was complete with fairly lights and banana leaves in arches over the table, very special! Would definitely recommend this amazing hotel to anyone who loves great food and high level of service, loves beautiful gardens and stunning beaches. But also if you like to do activities during the day it’s perfect as there’s so much to do within the resort and around Zanzibar! We left feeling very relaxed and spoilt, this hotel is everything you could dream about, honestly!

The people working at Tulia were extremely well chosen and extremely well trained. The gardens, the farm, the food, the staff, the accommodations and the maintenance were all 5 star plus.

Everything was amazing. We stayed at three different resorts in Zanzibar since we heard that the tides and beaches were all different. We stayed at the Hilton DoubleTree, the Royal Zanzibar, and Tulia, and Tulia was by far the best. The villas are absolutely beautiful. We had so much space, and everything was clean and modern. The AC worked like a charm. Since you each have your own villa, you also have your own patios. We didn't stay on the oceanfront villas, but we could still see the ocean from our patio/windows. The staff was amazing. They were the kindest and most helpful people we encountered anywhere in Tanzania. There are 25 gardeners for the 16 villas. Since they grow their own vegetables, the food is very fresh, and the chef there is very talented. We only had the breakfast plan, but breakfast is massive and got us through the day without needing lunch. The beach is private, so you fortunately don't have anyone trying to sell you anything the second you step onto the beach like in other parts of the island. Tulia is definitely pricier than the other places we stayed, but it balanced itself with free private yoga sessions, free transfers, complimentary bottle of wine, and a free 1-hour massage.

The property is beautiful and exceptionally maintained! We arrived 3 hours earlier than standard check-in but we were still escorted to our bungalow immediately. The food was so delicious that my boyfriend asked to meet the chef. The staff is so friendly & really make you feel at home. The entire experience is so exclusive and intimate making for the perfect beach vacation! Thank you Steven, Natasha, Emmanuel, Hussein, and Kichele! Much love from New York :)

Amazing stay. Great amenities. Staff at the bar could be a little more attentive in asking if we'd like another drink, etc., but overall, great atmosphere.
