Zanzi Resort

It is situated on the shore of the Indian Ocean, 20 km from the historic town of Stone Town and a 25-minute drive from the Zanzibar International Airport.

The resort is very private, only 13 villas in total. Breakfasts are served in the restaurant throughout the day so even if you’re a late riser you can still have breakfast after 12. The restaurant itself is lovely. Open on the one side, Galagos (bush babies) can be seen at dinner time coming down from the trees to enjoy the bananas left for them by the staff. They are harmless animals and super cute. The dinner every night is a 3 course meal with choices of starters, mains, and desserts. The food is very good.”
