Gold Zanzibar sits in the village of Kendwa, on the north-west tip of the beautiful Tanzanian island of Unguja, just 50 minutes from the airport. Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, this is a rare non-tidal beach, making it a great spot for swimming.
The hotel’s spa retreat is modelled on a Balinese village, with eight different rooms available in which to sample a range of relaxing therapies and treatments from the Balinese-trained therapists. You can also work out in the hotel gym.
The hotel has 69 top-notch rooms such as deluxe ocean view and deluxe garden rooms, or beach suites/beach suites with pavilion, which open directly onto the beach. All have crisp white and gold furnishings and a private veranda. There are also a number of highly select luxury villa retreats that provide, among other delightful touches, a private beach tent and a butler.
As well as swimming in the hotel pool or in this calm stretch of the Indian Ocean, you can just cut loose and hang out at the beach, with its pristine white sand. The hotel can arrange varied activities, from trips around the island, by land or boat, to a range of watersports and diving excursions.
Spectacular scenery and breathtaking sunsets will be your backdrop as you tuck in to dishes of the international and local variety at the hotel’s eateries. Gold Zanzibar also provides beachfront service, so you need hardly move a muscle to order refreshments.
