Sultan Sands Island Resort, Kiwengwa
Relaxing holiday
Perfect resort to enjoy Zanzibar. I had my own little hut with an ocean view. The food was buffet style but varied from day to day. It was very clean. I had a good massage in the spa facility. Depending on the tide, the access to the ocean might require a long walk but there are two nice pools to compensate. Good for couples, families and solo travelers who are looking for tranquility.
