A fantastic place for us to unwind in Zanzibar following a climb up Mount Kilimanjaro. We were fortunate to stop in the retreat villa “Leila” which was superb. The chef was always on hand to offer suggestions and the butler service was a delight.

What a beautiful property! The rooms and bathrooms are dreamy and the views are stunning. All the staff at the hotel, specially the manager, Razel, were so kind and attentive. Every night at dinner, the staff prepare the beach for an amazing dining experience. We spent two nights there but wish it could've been longer!
