My beautiful last nights in Zanzibar
Nous avons passé nos dernières nuits à Zanzibar à Tamani. Un endroit calme et très beau loin de l’agitation des grandes villes, parfait pour se retrouver et se ressourcer. C’est une très belle découverte qui mérite toutes ses bonnes notes. Merci pour ce beau projet et pour votre accueil.

Coup de cœur à zanzibar ❤️
Magnifique endroit avec un personnel très sympathique et accueillant. L'hôtel a un accès direct pour la plage. Le ménage dans les chambres est fait tous les matins contrairement à d'autres hôtels ou nous avons pu y aller. Le petit déjeuner est très copieux et un service de restauration y est proposé avec de très bons plats à un prix très correct (par rapport aux alentours). A y aller sans hésiter. Pour nous c'est notre coup de cœur de zanzibar.

This hotel is simply wonderful ... the structure is new and extremely clean, all the staff are friendly and always available. The kitchen is excellent, the menu is good but if you have special requests the chef is always at your disposal. We did the excursions to Memba, Stone Town, Prison Island directly with them ... also snorkeling and swimming with dolphins. An incredible experience! The idea of contributing to the education of children with our stay is fantastic ... they really need it. You don't expect a resort with evening entertainment... this is not the place. It is an extremely quiet hotel in which to relax and enjoy the island. The atmosphere is incredible! The tide is spectacular in this part of the island. I thought it would be an obstacle to enjoy the sea but I was wrong….it was exciting to walk in the morning for miles on that stretch of fine white sand. The beach in front of the hotel is wonderful ... of course, there are beach boys like everywhere on the island but they are never pushy. In any case, just say no with kindness and they won't bother you anymore. A special thanks to Sveva who manages the hotel, always very sweet and willing to satisfy every request. She does all with love. Thanks also to the staff, they are fantastic people who transmit so much serenity to you. The only regret I have is not having taken a picture with all of them ... unfortunately we left at 3 am. Incredible experience, I would never have left ...
