COVID - This hotel treats Covid very seriously and everyone wears masks and gloves the whole time. They offer you masks and anti bac so you are well protected. We went and stayed here for our Honeymoon for 10 nights and simply speaking just perfect! If you read through others reviews just believe them. There is no other way to describe the service quality at this hotel as anything other than perfection. Nothing is ever too much hassle for them! The rooms are always perfectly cleaned and total luxury! We had our own private pool which was incredible and was a cheeky upgrade from the GM Matie who is amazing and so lovely! Our private butler was Thomas and the man is just amazing. He was so kind and helpful the whole way through our trip and would do anything to help. The menu is new every day with a selection of amazing options to eat from. The food is absolutely 5 star. Freshly cooked just for you (including breakfast) and every day the menu changes. The ingredients and spices they use are all local and you can taste that! They will do anything to accommodate changes to the menu or switching things out and all the staff's English is excellent so you never have any communication issues. This is literally about as good as a hotel can get in my opinion. I have only had service like this and food as good as this in the Maldives before and I am extensively travelled. The only 2 things to think about when booking here is firstly this is a kite surfing beach so by the nature of it it's pretty windy most of the time. This means if you want to be down on the beach relaxing in the sun it can be a little chilly in the morning or at night if you are a total sun worshipper. This was also August so their winter but keep it in mind. It's less windy at other hotels up north on the island. The second thing is the beach quality. When the tides in it is beautiful however when the tide goes out (a long way) there is a lot of seaweed and it doesn't look great. On both of these points this is clearly no reflection whatsoever on the hotel. They can't change this. If you want to Kite Surf then this place is awesome. If however you want to paddle around and take Insta photos then this likely isn't the right hotel for you (if you want this go stay at Zuri up North....you won't be disappointed). So all i'm saying is think about what you want from a beach and if it matters to you. Maybe the seaweed changes during different times of the year as well. But for 10 days in a row it wasn't great for us. We aren't huge beach lovers so happy with our private pool and the central pool is also lovely. Just think about it when planning the trip. The only small critisim of the hotel I could come up with (and this requires a lot of thinking as it's so perfect) would be that they could expand the menu slightly. You get 3 options for starter main and desert each day. I'm an easy going eater and this was perfect for me. My wife though only eats veg dishes and a bit of fish so often she would end up with one choice from the menu each day. I will point out they are amazing at the hotel of dealing with this though and will always let you pick dishes from previous nights so long as they have the items at the hotel BUT it would have been nice to have 4 or 5 options each day rather than just 3. You will have to work very hard to find a more lovely place to stay in the whole of Zanzibar and in fact id' go so far to say the world. You should certainly put this hotel high on your agenda. We would go back in a heartbeat!
I was here for two days but it felt like a whole week. The butlers, chefs and waiters are all very polite and very professional, and their services are top notch!! I’d recommend this only to people who can handle this level of lux!! 🔥
Perfect place to visit after a wonderfull safari
Amazing place with a very high level of service. We loved all the food they prepared for us and our host Thomas, did everything with a smile. Please don't forget to book at least one massage at Susanne's. She is absolutely amazing and truly has magic hands, your face will love it. Jerry from the Kite center is a great guy and know everything you'll need to know about all the watersports you can do. A visit to this place you will not regret! Pure bliss, hope to come back some day.
Your own paradise
We stayed in a beachfront villa, which is like really your own home right on a perfect beach. Beautiful decorated and gorgeous view. Maité (GM) and her staff are really focused on making your stay an exceptional moment. Margret who took care of us was very efficient, discrete, helpful and cheerful. Food is very good, and the chef is open for specific demands...which becomes a gastronomical experience! We were there for the second time this year, which says it all !
The best stay in Paje
The team was most welcoming as we showed up unannounced. Everyone made a great effort to prepare our villa at short notice and ensure we had a 5* stay throughout our visit. The chef prepared wonderful meals of fresh fish and salads. Given the current circumstances, the team took all health and safety measures very serious. We were also presented with a basket with hand sanitisers and masks. The villas are large enough to enjoy a safe and private holiday with direct access to the most beautiful beach in Zanzibar.
