August 2012

Gastronomy from the kitchen is high class and European style - but remenber that it's Zanzibar and that we as guests like the delicates of and spices from Zanzibar - which should be more integrated in all dishes

We suggest free tea and coffee in the rooms The snorkeling trip was nice but the knowledge about protecting the coralles and the fish/seashells/octopus etc is scarce and need to be updated. Corralles and trips to and walks on the reef need much more attentiom and protection. Prof. people such as Msc / Bsc in Biology or similar need to be based in connection with coral reef trips for information to the turists and integrate into the local population /fishermen/ and villages.

July 2011

Rooms were of good standard, beds were lovvely. Breakfast was very good, lunch great as well. Friendly staff and beautiful location.

Bathroom could have been slightly more well equipped. Dinners could have been better. Not much to choose from and the bbq night was poor.
