Accommodation at Zanzibar Beach Hotel and Resort
Rooms have all the necessary luxuries. The luxury beach front rooms and the honeymoon room are located closest to the beach and swimming pool area. The family villas are the furthest back on the property but command stunning ocean views.
The standard rooms can comfortably sleep 2 adults in either three-quarter beds or double beds. Each is en-suite and has a built-in vanity or writing desk and an open balcony. The luxury rooms are situated closer to the beach. They’re large enough to accommodate 2 adults in twin double beds and 2 children in twin single futons which convert to lounge chairs when not in use. The hand carved double entrance doorways leads off a spacious covered balcony which is furnished with cushioned sun loungers. The bar fridge can be stocked at your request.
The family villas, situated on a hill with gorgeous ocean views, are perfect for larger families of 6. They offer 3 rooms (1 double and 2 twins all en-suite), a lounge, open-plan kitchen and a lovely balcony overlooking the sea. They were originally built with self-catering in mind so they still have a fridge, stove, sink and cutlery. On the sundeck you’ll find a Weber barbeque and sun loungers.
The honeymoon room is situated almost on the beach and is discreetly separate from the rest of the resort. On your two private balconies you can easily feel you’re on your own deserted island. The room features an extra-length king-size bed and a lounge. The best part is the large berazzo stone bath situated in the corner of the bathroom, offering gorgeous 180 degree views of the ocean.
