We loved the location, view and personalised service. The fresh fruit, blended on the spot was a great way to start the day. My 7-yr old loved the beach, exploring at low-tide. Also Crazy Mzungo's right next door meant easy access to the bar and restaurant, for those days we needed company. The personal chef was excellent, preparing lovely meals with whatever fresh ingredients were at hand, especially the fish and octopus!

“Unforgettable Experience”

We stayed at Saffron Villa for 7 nights. There were 14 of us, 8 children and 6 adults. We had the most wonderful time from the moment we arrived to when we left. The accommodation, service, staff, setting was fabulous. Gaby the manager was always on hand to assist and advise us. She checked up on us most days and was most helpful, she even drove one of our party to the local clinic based at one of the hotels. Abeid our chef made the most amazing food. He was always willing and helpful and helped us source all sorts of things for our meals. Beautiful Mama Sheri in her stunning colourful outfits, was there to assist Abeid and to make sure with the help of Mama Bi, that our villa was clean and tidy. We met Jull who gave us wonderful massages, and painted the most amazing Henna on at least 8 of us. She also helped us source clothes and sarongs. Ussi helped with doing a couple of food shops for us, which was wonderful as it meant we could totally relax. We used locals to do most of our trips which included the Blue Safari, swimming with dolphins, and the Jozani forest to name a few. Zanzibar is really a stunning place with friendly people, white beaches, warm ocean, fascinating history (Stone Town is a must). Saffron Villa added to the whole feel of it and we can only wish to return. It certainly is an experience not to be missed!

“Superb Stay at Saffron Villas, with instant 10 second walk into the water...”

We had an absolute brilliant time with our family in Saffron Villas. The staff were brilliant (chef Abeddi who cooked our meals; Emaar the bar manager; Kingi the driver and cool dude and Uzzi the all accomodating manager of everything), engaging, fun, passionate and totally relaxed.

The villa was two story with great bedrooms and it was literally 10 seconds walk to the beach (voted in 2007 best beach in the world).

The food and refreshments at Crazy Mzungo's next door (2 seconds walk!) were brilliant, good music as well and great company from other guests as well.

Met the owners Matt and Michelle and they were absolutely brilliant too, with tips on how to make most out of break.

No tv, ipads or electronics were used as we got away from all of that with the kids with football on beach with the locals, walks, swimming, cards at night and a totally relaxed (poly poly - means slowly slowly in Swahili) vibe enjoyed by all of us.

Couldn't recommend this place enough and we will be back to stay for sure!!!!
