We are on the beautiful, tropical island of Zanzibar, Tanzania.

We opened our Zanzibar hotel over 15 years ago and we are proud to have worked with the local Zanzibari community from then and till today. We still source most of our foodstuffs and building materials from the nearby villages.

Through working with the villagers we have developed a variety of excursions and trips throughout the island including snorkelling on our own house reef just offshore and visiting the spice plantations which made Zanzibar what it is today.
