3 stars for the location. Beach is gorgeous, pool is clean and jetty bar was great (despite them doing some minor construction when we were there it was a fantastic view). Service was good-bar tenders and wait staff were attentive and friendly. Food was good,...More

Thanks a lot for your request and the interest in our Hotel. Yes it is possible to swim and snorkel direct in front of the Hotel. Our 100 meter long Jetty provide stairs direct in to the indian ocean. We do not have the best snorkeling spot in front of our Hotel but you can rent a local dhow with our captain salum and go snorkeling close to the reef. We have a own water sport center with plenty of activities. On the whole east and north coast of zanzibar is low and high tide. A natural spectacel where you can make amazing walks during low tide over the lagoon of jambiani. Watch the seaweed culture or octopus hunters from our jetty and enjoy a fresh cocktail and nice snacks. We would love to welcome you at our little paradies. with best regards and hope to see you soon
