ZANZIBAR HOTELS – ANY RECOMMENDA­TIONS?

-

I’m looking to draw some experience from forum members to recommend Zanzibar accommodat­ion. I am looking for somewhere five-star/higher-end but, aside from this, there is no direct requiremen­t apart from good food and overall experience. We stayed at the Doubletree by Hilton last year, right on the beach. Not really a business hotel but wonderful to stay at. The top tourist hotels are mainly Italian-run and can be found along the east coast of the island. I’ve stayed a couple of times in the Tembo hotel, which is right on the beach in Stone Town and has a lot of history. When I was there in the late 1990s it was a dry hotel (the only disappoint­ment for me) but it gives you a real feel for the island. Not high-end, more authentic. Hideaway of Nungwi – I’ve stayed there three times now. Excellent, high-quality, all-inclusive, with very nice sparkling wine. Great food, especially the seafood. About an hour’s drive from Stone Town.
