    The most incredible vacation
    This property is incredible and the staff was overwhelmingly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed every ounce of our recovery time after Kilimanjaro and I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a slice of heaven in Zanzibar.

    Jederzeit wieder
    Super schönes und sauberes Hotel. Das Essen war sehr lecker und der Service top. So war ich zum Beispiel am ersten Tag krank und das Personal hat sich um mich gekümmert, als wären sie meine Mutter. Es war der ideale Ort für unsere Flitterwochen. Sehr ruhig und romantisch. Zudem kann man SUP, Kajak... um sonst hohlen und um sonst Billard spielen. Auch kann man an der Reception Touren buchen. Leider hatte es am Strand viel Seegras (saisonal bedingt). Aber man kann sich beim Hotel Strandschuhe holen und als wir ca. 50m ins Meer liefen, war der Strand super schön. Und der Manager spricht deutsch. Vielen Dank für alles!!!!

    Fantastique, innoubliable
    Nous sommes restés 5 jours dans ce havre de paix, le genre d'endroit où on aimerait passer toute une vie. Le service est irréprochable, vous serez accueillis par Dolleen et Ian qui sont d'emblée très attentifs à vos demandes. Nous avons séjourné à la Bahari villa qui offre une sublime vue sur l'océan, ainsi qu'un accès "pieds dans le sable". L'établissement est intimisste, avec 4 villas et 4 chambres, très loin de l'ambiance club de vacances. La plage, bien que quelque peu rocailleuse, est réellement privée et vous n'y croiserez aucun passant ou touriste. Vous l'aurez rien que pour vous. Le restaurant offre des repas d'une très grande qualité. On vous proposera un menu pré-defini quotidiennement, mais vous ne serez jamais déçus. De belles découvertes culinaires vous attendent. Il y a un vrai lien qui se crée avec les membres du personnel qui sont absolument charmants et sincèrement bienveillants. On recommande sans aucune hésitation! Merci à Ian, Dolleen, Jumani, Rebecca et tous les autres.
