We had a fantastic two week family holiday at Uzuri Villa through Zanzibar retreats over Christmas and New Year. The staff were friendly and attentive, keeping all 13 of us fed and watered, we didn’t have to lift a finger. The villa was beautifully decorated with lots of space, fantastic spot on the beach with restaurants and activities within a short walk. The owner of the Villa, Elga, was a fantastic host, and was always there to answer our questions and give us recommendation on excursions. One of the best holiday’s we’ve had.
Hi Claudia, thank you so much for organizing our trip!
It really was amazing and we were so well looked after by Clayton and the staff at Villa Serenity!!! Nothing was too big an ask and we all just loved it!! The food was amazing, the villa was always clean, and the staff so friendly!! It was great value and we were so spoilt by everyone there!!!
We will definitely be visiting again, and using Zanzibar Retreats! So thank you very much!!!

JUA Retreat was a dream come true! The pictures online did not do the resort justice, as things are much larger and more beautiful in person. This place is incredibly quiet and peaceful. When my husband and I first arrived it felt as if time stopped! I’ve never had the experience before and have not had that feeling since then. Jua Retreat offers a serene, relaxing and secluded experience.
The room doesn’t have excessive amenities but offers everything you need to feel at ease, such as breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean, one of the best beds i’ve ever slept in and a private lounge pool. Although we did not have a personal butler, the staff acted as such and accommodated every request no matter how big or small.
There are also 3 friendly dogs that guard the resort– a great addition for any dog-lovers. Just don’t leave the food out too long or they might attempt to taste-test! My only regret is not staying there longer but me and my husband plan to return. This is the perfect place to go if you want a quiet, secluded, serene destination with top-notch food and customer service. Highly recommended!
We loved Pemba, it feels wild and unspoiled, quieter than Zanzibar. Our stay at The Aiyana was magnificent, we loved everything about it! Philippe the General Manager really makes sure his guests are treated like royalty. The food is excellent. We would love to return!
Booking through Zanzibar Retreats was such an incredible experience, as Victoria is super efficient. She not only knows the islands and hotels well, she manages to get the best prices and deals. She is the best!
Oh my goodness! Zi Beach Cottage was absolutely unbelievable! Our expectations were blown straight out the window.
Everything about it was absolutely perfect. Our room, the food, the service, it was really the most special, magical holiday we have had in a while.
Everyday the food was incredible. I could not speak highly enough about the service, each and every person were so accommodating and went above and beyond for us.
New Years Eve really was the highlight for us, we were told after breakfast that the chefs will be preparing a special dinner for us so we won’t be choosing what we want on the menu and wow. We came back from the beach to flowers everywhere, happy new year signs, the most beautiful flower arch on our balcony, and then were treated to the most delicious seafood platter. It was honestly incredible and left us speechless.
Thank you so much for your help and finding us the most perfect place. Our holiday would have never been the same if we weren’t staying at Zi Villa. It was incredible. I have recommended them and you to a few people already and I will be continuing to do so.
Thank you so much again Victoria, we’re still dreaming of re-doing it all again.
