My 2nd stay at Casa Amarillo, and I think this will be my go-to location for any Zanzibar stays.
The VIlla is close enough to The Z Hotel (via transfer) to use their facilities, but far enough away to have some privacy and enjoy everything Casa Amarillo has to offer.
Spent 10 nights here in March, and the levels or service and cleanliness were of the highest standard possible throughout.
Particular mention to Jamal, the waiter, always on hand to help out/take orders/ensure we had everything we needed.
Casa Amarillo was so beautifully designed , with thoughtful pictures and African artifacts. The bedroom was very large with a lovely four poster bed , walk in wardrobe and large bathroom. The lounge has a great velvet sofa all around, very relaxing room . The kitchen had everything you needed with well stocked fridge . There was a good breakfast spread and you could order from the menu also. There were waiters and a chef cooking , from a wide menu from wraps , burgers to curries , delicious. We had seafood platter with lobster , king prawns , squid , a real seafood feast. The infinity pool was superb and fresh and was great to have such good views of the sea and lovely gardens to sun bathe. At the bottom of the gardens were turtles too. The staff were wonderful and always helpful, professional and smiling . It really was a wonderful experience. It was really close to where the beach , hotels restaurants and bars are too . We have already booked to go again . Definitely should visit !!!
My partner and I spent 6 days in Amarillo Villa in October, it was the perfect relaxing remedy after an excellent, but tiring Safari in the Serengeti.
We just relaxed around the Villa all day reading our books, with regular dips in the pool to cool down.
Our personal butler made us delicious cocktails to order.
The food was very tasty, we ate far too much.
Thank you for such a great holiday!
I would highly recommend this Villa - it was very relaxing and peaceful.
Stayed here for a week and was extremely impressed with the experience. It is perfect for a family although that was not the case for us, but being part of the hotel and having transfers to and from whenever we liked meant that we had all the perks of staying in the hotel, but had more privacy. There is an amazing view of the sea from the pool which we really enjoyed, and the chef that was on hand all the time cooked an excellent menu and could not recommend staying here enough if you enjoy staying in villas more than hotels.
We stayed here for a week and we weren't disappointed. The staff at the villa made our stay very comfortable. We didn't have to worry about food, hotel transfers or anything else. You get the benefits of staying at a hotel with 24hr room service and a fully stocked fridge but the flexibility and privacy of staying in a beautiful private luxury villa.
