The Essence of Zanzibar
Infinity Pool
snorkeling in Zanzibar Indian Ocean

With stunning views over the Indian Ocean, our infinity pool is the perfect place to relax and cool off. Enjoy drinks from the bar or lie back on our sun loungers in the shade or in the sun (make sure to put on plenty of suncream!). Each day at 5pm we have complimentary cakes and tea/coffee served at the pool bar.

Swimming at night is something that all our guests should try – there is something magical about swimming in a softly lit pool with the sounds of the ocean crashing against the beach and the milky way sprinkling the night sky with pinpoints of light.

Dhow Bar & Restaurant
Kayaking on the Indian Ocean in Zanzibar

Eating at The Dhow Restaurant is a unique experience thanks to our centerpiece – an original and (previously) sea worthy Dhow boat. It was sailed up to the beach outside The Zanzibari and carried into the restaurant to take up it’s new role as our bar.

As your eyes make their way up the sail of the Dhow you will see the breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean and also take in the traditional high beamed “Makuti” roof. All of the furniture in the restaurant is made from reclaimed Dhow wood and each piece is unique – you won’t find a dining experience like this anywhere else in Tanzania! Read More...

Kayaking on the Indian Ocean in Zanzibar

Getting to The Zanzibari takes one hour from Zanzibar Airport and the road is tarmac for the majority of the journey. We can provide transport to and from the airport – each car can take up to 6 people.
If it is your first trip to Zanzibar you might be surprised to find donkeys, cows and chickens crossing the road as well as people hanging from the local taxis called “Dallah Dallahs” – the journey is an experience in it’s own right!If you wish to fly to Zanzibar directly there are the following options.

International flights to Zanzibar or local connections from Arusha and Dar es Salaam.

Traditional Dhow Sunset Cruise

Our rock pools are the perfect way to cool off at the end of the day before dinner. Sit back and relax into one of our 3 pools overlooking the Indian Ocean and listen to the waves crashing against the beach.
Watching Dhows sailing by and birds returning from the ocean is a great way to let your mind wander and forget about work!In the coming months we will be converting the rock pools into jacuzzis making the experience even more soothing.
