Family owned and managed, Breezes Beach Club & Spa is charming and romantic.

Part of The Zanzibar Collection and fronting one of Condé Nast Traveller’s top 30 island beaches, Breezes is a tropical hideaway that’s particularly popular with couples. There are plenty of shaded loungers on the white sand beach, and the hotel’s exotic gardens surround a large freeform pool.

This family-run resort is environmentally aware, with a desalination plant and a recycling system in place. It also supports a local school and has funded the creation of a maternity unit at the village clinic.

The choice of restaurants includes the Salama Dining Room, where breakfast and dinner are served if you’ve booked on Half Board or Full Board. Dinner alternates between themed buffet dining and table service menu. The Breakers Grill serves a lunchtime menu on the beach under the palms, and at The Sultan’s Table you can sample seafood flavoured with Indian and Swahili spices in a beautiful ocean view setting. For something extra special, reserve The Tides – a thatched pavilion overlooking the ocean, with just a single table for two.

Spacious rooms are housed in two-storey buildings and have a white and brass colour scheme, with cotton throws and Zanzibari furniture that was hand-carved by a dedicated team of carpenters. Standard Rooms are on the ground floor and set back from the beach, while Deluxe Rooms are at the heart of the resort. Suites are located on the upper floor with a large balcony area.
