Amazing experience!
We could not say better things about Zawadi - we stayed here for our honeymoon and everything about our stay was perfect, from the villa to the service to the food and the amenities. The food was incredible and we got to try so much with multiple courses at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, in addition to appetizers and drinks delivered to us at sundown every night! The service was so great; we didn't even need to ask for anything as it seemed like everything we could have wanted was provided before we asked! They even set up a private dinner on a patio overlooking the ocean for us for our honeymoon. Additionally, we were able to snorkel using the resort's equipment, which was great, and enjoyed the lovely infinity pool and our villa's own pool, touring the on-site farm, and feeding the turtles that live at the resort! All in all, we left saying this was the best place we've ever stayed!

Just book it...NOW
It’s hard to review this amazing place without it sounding like a string of cliches. But it is truly amazing from every angle. As a solo traveler places like these can make you feel a little weird - it’s so romantic and honeymooney. But at no point did the friendly and attentive staff make me feel weird being alone, nor did they try to befriend me and interrupt my “me” time which I really appreciated. It was the little touches to detail that made it so relaxing. They remembered quickly that I prefer sparking water to still water, and that’s what I was offered at every meal without having to ask for it. And my post-dinner sambuca was brought to my room, again without me having to ask for it. The villas are beautiful, each with their own little pool, amazing view and the biggest most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. If I knew where they bought their pillows I would order some immediately. No review would be complete without mentioning the food. There is a small kitchen farm at the back and much of the fresh produce comes from there. It’s also a great place to visit - there’s a cute goat and as of June 2021 a baby cow. The food is wonderful - I had fresh lobster, crab, giant shrimp every night. And amazing avocado salads. The lobster ravioli served one night was possibly the best meal I have ever had. For those of you looking at the price…Yes, it’s not cheap, and was kind of out of my price range. But I wanted to spoil myself and don’t regret a single penny I spent. In fa

Resort so good I spent the whole time there
Great small boutique resort perfect for a quick romantic/relaxing getaway. I had originally planned to explore the whole island of Zanzibar, but after a few hours at this resort I cancelled all my plans and decided to have a lazy and relaxing vacation. The hotel is so accommodating to all our needs and with spacious rooms and a private plunge pool there is no need to leave. The resort is also located in a low density area, so the beach front is almost completely empty, which makes long walks really enjoyable. One thing to note about Zanzibar in general is the "Hakunah Matata" lifestyle. Everyone is so laid back, so make sure you plan ahead and order everything way before you need it. A 5 minute request usually takes 30 minutes, so order food way before you're hungry, and relax until it arrives. If you are planning to stay in this part of Zanzibar, I would highly recommend Zawadi.

Honestly, my fiance and I just got back home and I am a little concerned I may fall into a depression lol. My stay at Zawadi Hotel was so beyond perfect for our honeymoon and my 30th birthday I almost cried when leaving. The hotel is breathtaking, the area is so perfect, you can visit the sister property and other tourist activites in the area. The hotel set everything up for us. They were so helpful. Omg the staff, the nicest people I ever met. Seriously. By the end of the week it felt like we had family. Everyone was so genuine and generous. Our room was an oasis, I love a hotel where you can enjoy the room just as much as the public areas. The food, I mean wow. I looked forward to each breakfast, lunch and dinner. The cocktails were marvelous. I have nothing negative to say, nothing. I will be back, very very very soon. Ive traveled to many places and this was one of the best vacations I have ever had. 5 stars well deserved.
