This small style hotel is really more like a guest house and it feels as if you'll be staying with family.   The owner was involved in the hospitality industry in the Red Sea area of Egypt and decided to start his own hotel business in Zanzibar. The  property is on a  10 year least from Aug 2018.

Sadly, the approach raid is not very pleasant but that can be typical of what can be expected in Zanzibar - Third and First worlds cheek by jowl...

Public beach outside the hotel gate with the sea that goes far out at low tide.  No pool. Suitable for a single or couple but not for families.
