Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort is a luxurious property beloved by couples, families and groups of friends. Those who come to Zanzibar looking for serenity, turquoise waters, white sand beaches and incredible, traditional Swahili hospitality. We visited Royal Zanzibar in December and had the most idyllic stay. Read on to find why RZ is the place you should stay at during your travels to Zanzibar.
Royal Zanzibar Resort
Set on 20 acres of garden scenery and along the pristine beaches of Zanzibar, Royal Zanzibar Resort offers all inclusive stays for the perfect relaxing holidays you dream of.
You can relax on a white sand beach, or by one of four swimming pools. They are considered to be the most impressive on the island. Sunset viewed from the infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean can simply take your breath away.
Don’t miss the newly renovated SPA! It’s a beautiful place where you’ll be able to leave all your worries at the door and submerge yourself in total tranquility. The massage rooms are luxurious, filled with stunning details and decor. The professional masseuses will help your muscles to relax and bring serenity back to your body.
The Restaurants & Bars
2 restaurants serve a variety of cuisine. Ranging from a buffet selection of international breakfast, lunch and dinner at The Spices, to à la carte choices at The Cliff. Here you can enjoy your meals while admiring the turquoise waters of Indian Ocean.
There are 3 bars : The Baraza Bar located right on the beach provides light meals and beverages during the day. The Upepo Pool Bar to which you can swim up to and enjoy your favorite drink as you relax in the water. Sipping a mojito at the Mapenzi Lounge Bar for sunset will be the cherry on top a perfect day.
There are 182 deluxe & superior rooms and 20 Ocean Suites. The rooms offer stunning views of the property and the ocean. They are also a perfect combination of comfort, luxury and tradition.
Our experience in Royal Zanzibar Resort
We stayed in a 98 square meter Ocean Suite for 2 nights during which we discovered the amenities and comfort the Royal Zanzibar offers. Waking up each day to the sound of the ocean and of the wind moving the palm trees was idyllic. From the very beginning the staff made sure we felt like home, charming us with their Swahili hospitality. We met smiley faces at each step, whether at the beach or at the restaurant. We spend time swimming in the pools (there are 4 of them!), sipping cocktails at the Upepo beach bar or simply working on our tan laying on sun beds.
Both restaurants serve delicious food and we loved them equally. The Cliff is perfect for lunch when you can enjoy the spectacular ocean views and tasting traditional dishes. While Spices was great for dinner. At the buffet we found a great mix of both- international dishes and local specialities straight from the barbecue.
The cherry on top of our stay was our couples massage at the gorgeous SPA followed by a bubble bath. We left feeling relaxed and stressfree as never before.
We truly couldn’t imagine a better place to spend Zanzibar all inclusive holidays than in Royal Zanzibar Beach Resort.
