I love the fact that the hotel is right on the beach. It was exactly what I was looking for, and each room is like an Italian villa. Beautiful.

8/10 Very Good

Great place if you look for some peace and quiet - the rooms are at the back from the hustle of kiwengwa beach - but you still get a good view from the restaurant and certain angles of upstairs. The staff was friendly albeit limited English and accommodating when I asked for services (which of course I paid for, only fair!). The place was very clean and the food is good. Some power cuts and the re-start had been variable - but in Zanzibar this is not exceptional.

Love the location, beach and the room was exactly what I was looking for. Owner and staff very friendly and on top of my needs. This beach on the east of the island is much quiet that up north, really enjoyed it. Breakfast was ok.
