Kijani Beach Villas at the beachfront was cozy and the restaurant served delicious food and drinks. The staff were so friendly! Anna the manager let us check out late to accommodate our flight schedule since no one checked in after us. This resort offered so much more…
Many thanks to Victoria for helping us arranging this wonderful vacation!
You get a perfect 10!
Zi Villa is gorgeous. The decor, the overall vibe, and the staff are 10/10. The food was fantastic at all meals, the soups and the grilled fish stood out the most with my group. The pool was very nice and clean and the beach access was great as well and extremely clean. The villa staff made us bonfires on two of the nights which really was a treat to lay out under the stars with some music and drinks. Highly recommend it for other groups. We also really loved the villa’s landscaping, the greenery and flowers and all was just beautiful to be around. The staff would put fresh picked flowers daily around the villa which was a nice touch. It was very peaceful and serene.
Working with you, Victoria, was great. Really appreciated the quick responses, easy engagement, and thoughtful suggestions and recommendations to make the trip better. Thank you again for the recommendations and the support on the trip. Overall very very good and will recommend accordingly!
Uzuri Villa was very nice.
We had a great time on Zanzibar, and Mr Kahawa’s Villa was superb!
The Housekeeper Asia was a wonderful host. She took care of everything. The chef, Joyce, was great too (we actually only ate at home… because she cooked very well!)
About the service of Zanzibar-Retreats, we were very happy and would book again through you, as soon as we plan to go for a little longer.
Hi Victoria, I want to start by saying that I was extremely impressed on our call yesterday, your knowledge of the islands and the properties is super impressive, and you were so helpful in guiding us to these properties. Your efficiency is so appreciated, and moreover, you have everything covered in your email – a rare and precious thing – in recent years I have been dismayed at how few agents/reps really know their product and even when they do, they tend not to put this level of effort into a quote. It’s great, so a big thank you.
Firstly, booking with Zanzibar Retreats was a good and comforting experience, especially after our last Xmas booking with Airbnb. All the arrangements were very well arranged and Island Express (five star) was promptly there to meet us. Wahid, our driver was very patient and catered to our every need. Kiswa House in Stone Town was a lovely place to spend the night.
Jambiani villa was a lovely place to stay at, literally on the beach which was delightful. The staff was exceptionally friendly and welcomed us with open arms. Walking to the main restaurant for breakfast on the beach was very relaxing. The villa was on the quiet side which we loved and at no point were we hassled walking on the beach and many were having night strolls. We even managed to experience the full moon rising!! A trip well worth it.
Next time, though we will choose one of your recommendations, as a little more luxury would definitely be welcomed.
Highlights: Snorkeling trip and sandbanks and Malum caves!! Truly a very relaxing holiday and I loved the coconuts on the beach.
So we first stayed at Kilindi. Staff super friendly, place was really clean and the house was also really nice but it did not have a view. just bushes. When we stayed at the swimming pool it was lovely but the only negative thing was the continuing sound of the craws. Yes, it’s nature but it was pretty overwhelming. The food was good. Just above average. It was possible to order something whenever you needed something. Our highlight was the dinner at the beach. This was really something we will never forget. Oh, and out butler Saleh was also the perfect match for us.
Safira Blu was a great experience, but like I said before, it has great potential but misses a real soul. We’d rather stay in Jua then return to Safira.
Our number 1 is Jua! It is so intimate, and everything felt right for us. The open villas really make you feel connected to the nature.
Regarding our communication, we really loved the direct way of communicating with you Victoria, and of course the discounted prices you offered. Thank you!
