Whether you come to Zanzibar after a safari tour or a trek to the top of Kilimanjaro, you’ll be needing relaxation, a cosy atmosphere, self-pampering, good food, massage and a dip in the sea. You’ll find all of this at Spice Island Hotel & Resort, which is located in the south-eastern part of the island.
Decorated in classic Zanzibar style, the family-run hotel has its own private beach and is all but located in a large botanical garden with more than 3,000 exotic plants, trees and flowers.
The resort oozes holiday atmosphere and relaxation. The communal areas are incredibly cosy and the entire resort has a special vibe, which makes you feel completely relaxed and very welcome immediately.
The restaurant and lounge area are furnished with lovely soft sofas, chairs and daybeds in dark wood and leather, spiced up with cushions and throws in vibrant colours. With its cosy atmosphere and the beautiful view of the beach and the sea, it’s hard to tear yourself away from here, and we’re sure this will become your favourite area at the resort. Borrow a book from the library or take a nap in the breeze from the garden.
If you manage to leave the lounge, you can go for a stroll out on the long jetty and enjoy even more views and ocean breezes – and have a nice cup of coffee in the cosy lounge bar at the end of the jetty. At low tide, you can jump into the water from the steps on the jetty – and afterwards enjoy a cold drink and a snack at the bar. Throw yourself into a hammock and have yet another nap.
If you feel the need to do something, you can jump into the pool or add a spot of excitement to your holiday by purchasing tours incorporating interesting water sports activities in the hotel’s own water sports centre.
When you travel with Africa Safari, you get a 15% discount on the water sports activities on Spice Island, and you can borrow reef shoes and Fat Bikes free of charge (if available).
You also get 20% off all spa treatments – much needed, no doubt, if you’ve been up Kilimanjaro or on safari…
The hotel’s restaurant, Restaurant Makuti, serves a wide selection of delicious local dishes with fish and shellfish, as well as a variety of dishes from African, Indian and Arab cuisine. Breakfast consists of a tempting buffet, as well as eggs and pancakes served directly from the kitchen, just as you want them.
The hotel has 34 rooms divided between bungalows of different sizes. There are two rooms in each bungalow – each room has its own entrance and a pleasant terrace. The rooms feature traditional furniture, an en suite bathroom, air conditioning, a safe and a small seating area for optimal comfort.
Free Wi-Fi is also available in all communal areas.
Please note: The resort will be closed for annual renovation during the period from 27 March – 8 May 2019.
