10/10 Exceptional

The food was excellent, compliments to the head Chef! I was celebrating my 40th birthday and this property with the beautiful white beach and clear ocean blue water was amazing! The hotel staff were friendly and thought of everything! And the best part of the trip was meeting, Hassan, an excursion tour manager on the beach 255-772-866-086! His services were excellent! He took incredible care of us from beginning to end. We did three tours, Safari Blue, Quads (ATV's) and Stone town/Prison Island. He and his partner were extremely professional, drove us everywhere and stuck by our sides to answer any questions we had. And for my birthday he arranged for a traditional band to play music, sing and dance, and they even brought me a cake. This was the best trip ever. If you you think about doing a tour, do it with Hassan and his team! They will take GREAT care of you!

The most incredible stay that I’ve ever had! Their attention to guests, service, upkeep… it’s exclusive and remote and beautiful!! The food, drinks and entertainment was wonderful! Lots of included activities like sailing, paddle boarding, spa etc. we went for our honeymoon and they set up a romantic private dinner for us! Would highly recommend staying and hope to go back again!

8/10 Very good

A pristine property with a magnificent beach the only thing I would say is that the kitchen leave some thing to be improved on breakfast and lunch is excellent but dinner is always medium marginal at the cost per night it’s surprising that you wouldn’t have a little larger menu to choose from

The best!
This is quite possibly the best hotel I have ever been to (and I’ve traveled a decent amount)! I was speechless! The staff and managers were just incredible! The rooms were lovely, the whole atmosphere was amazing, and everything was fresh and cozy. I cannot recommend this hotel enough!

Paradise in Zanzibar
Overall beyond happy that I stayed in this beautiful private hotel. The staff were wonderful and I felt like I was part of the family. Food was excellent and it’s all organic and freshly picked from their own farm. My room was awesome. The surroundings were beautiful. It’s like paradise. It was worth splurging and hopefully I get to come back again. I love Tulia!

Excellent experience
The place is exceptionally welcoming and was greeted with amazing smiles and definitely needed this time to kick start my vacation. Really enjoyed the stay i would recommend the place if you want to try something different and far away from the city life. And enjoy some peace and quiet and make beautiful memories. Everyone was friendly and accommodate our needs The bed room was comfortable and clean but as if for the bed and pillow selection it maybe it could have been a bit softer ( feathers ) The spa was beautifully decorated, however there was a clock in the room that was ticking which kind of was annoying. As i payed attention to details. And just a suggestion, below the massgae table maybe have a bowl of lavenders or some kind of live petals but this is just my preference. I think i would enhence the experience. The food was amazing!

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!
