We spent two days at the Essque Zalu resort in Nungwi and enjoyed every minute of the time spent. If we were to go back to Zanzibar, we would love to spend an entire week in this luxurious resort. Here are ten reasons to inspire you to stay at Essque Zalu..
Zanzibari beaches are stunning - each and every single one of them. The water is blue the sand is soft and the sea life is abundant. The coast line is a perfect backdrop to click umpteen postcard like pictures. The sky turns into a colourful palette every evening and you would wish time would stand still to let you enjoy these moments forever. Such was our experience at the Michamvi Bay Sunset Resort.
Stone Town is dotted with every range of accommodation - luxury five star chains, cosy boutique hotels and tiny bed and breakfasts. Our hotel of choice was Maru Maru, a well located boutique hotel with architecture that clearly reflects influences of the Arabic style. The hotel has traditional Zanzibari doors and some really impressive and interesting furniture in the lobby. Read on for a detailed review of the hotel...
If you are a beach lover and haven’t been to Zanzibar as yet, trust me, you are missing something in life. If you are wondering where Zanzibar is…this archipelago is just off the Tanzanian coast and comprises of many small and two large islands - Unguja and Pemba. The islands are surrounded by azure waters, teeming with sea life. Zanzibar was the hub of spice and slave trade, that have resulted in its unique culture - a mix of Indian, Arabic and European.
We love beaches. Our love for beaches has taken us to Maldives, Thailand, Seychelles, Bali and numerous places in India. Zanzibar was on our bucketlist as it is supposed to have beautiful beaches, which are washed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The waters are teeming with life and there are high chances of being able to swim with dolphins and even whale sharks!
