The Jua Retreat was a wonderful getaway for my wife and I. It is a secluded property with 4 very large villas. Hassan and his staff are wonderful, friendly, and helpful. They helped us with booking excursions (snorkel, reef picnic, Rock Restaurant, and Jozani Forest), making sure we were well rested and well fed. They were great company at the resort, and I enjoyed speaking with them and getting to know them. The food was delicious, the views were immaculate, and the the hospitality was second to none. I would recommend the all inclusive package, as it made every thing very easy for us. Getting to Jua is a trek from the airport, about a 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive through some bumpy roads, but once you get there, it is pure relaxation. The rooms do not have fans or windows, so some nights can be a little warmer. But on nights where there is a nice sea breeze, it is great. Of note, the villas are outdoors and one with nature, so you may see some bugs, the nets around the bed are drawn for you by housekeeping before you go to sleep, so they are not an issue while sleeping. This is not something that deterred us from our time, but just something to know in case that is not your "vibe" All in all, I would 100% recommend Jua for an unforgettable, relaxing, and romantic getaway.

This has been our best vacation sofar! Perfect setup, perfect location (even though a bumpy ride to get there), perfect ambiente, perfect service, perfect team! Don't know how to really describe the great feeling we had and still have, after being treated with unbeatable attention, by a so well trained staff, from increadible Hassan, to Mussa, Emanuel, Jamal and Lilian, right throught the amazing kitchen crew and the guards. The perfect place to rest, reconsile, have a honeymoon, or like us, celebrate 40 years of a beautiful marriage. Fantastic bungallows, with great setup, modern, safe and with a very much at home feeling, with 1A butlered servicing. And all in almost pure sustainability. Simply perfect. Thank you Nigel!! We'll be back!

Jua retreat is a great small lodge with large rooms, private plunge pools and is set on beautiful grounds. There is a very large pool, beach access and a ton of warm, sparkling crystal clear water to play in when the tide is in. The food is plentiful and delicious. The thing you will remember most is the kind, caring, attentive service from all staff members. They are fun, conversational, and funny. We enjoyed our three nights and will visit again when in Zanzibar. I would recommend this stay.

Perfect place for relaxing. 4 big really beatiful villas with a private small pool each one. The bed is huge and very comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The beach is amazing only 5 steps away from the hotel. It is a very exclusive hotel where you feel very appreacited and very well treated. The food is very tasty. Incredible experience.

We were on our honeymoon and stayed in Jua Retreat for 4 nights which were amazing! We had all inclusive option booked through booking.com. The best thing is that it is super private. There are only 4 villas meaning 8 people in all resort! If you want privacy, it’s a place for you! Villa was beautiful with massive bed. Room was always clean. Great view and access to the sea. Large swimming pool and paddle board included in all inclusive option. Staff was exceptional! We did quite a lot of activities which were available and hotel staff organised everything for us (snorkelling, massage, Jozani forest visit, Quad Safari). Food was great, although could have more vegetarian options available. My wife didn’t have much to choose from as she she do not eat seafood. However, for me, food was great! Definitely recommend this place to everyone! Thank you very much Jua team!

We are a Swedish couple who spend ten unforgettable days at Jua Retreat July 2022. Being senior citizens we are blessed with lot s of experiences fromf traveling around the world. With that said we don t hesitate naming Jua as one of the very best places we ever have stayed at. Reading all the glowing reviews and the retreats own description it s easy to believe it really can t be that good. Truth is-in some ways it even better. The place has a great and very tranquil location with a gorgeous and ever changing sea upfront. The villas are very spacious with a view to die for. The natural air-conditioning is a treat. The food is fantastic all the way with plenty of options and always delicious and a feeling of being home-cooked from start to finish. The All-Inclusive option really is All-inclusive and with a flexibility we never have encountered anywhere else. Part of the secret of Jua of course lies in the fact that the number of guests are limited to eight. The garden are lush, green and variated and the pool is both big and has a great location. The biggest explanation to the stunning quality of Jua however lies in the hospitality and commitment shown by the staff. Hassan and his team makes an amazing job of making every guest feel welcome and special. We really can t find words to describe the friendliness and attention to details shown by each and everyone working at this retreat. We hope to one day return to Jua Retreat and if not it will be a memory that we always keep close to our hearts. It goes without saying we strongly recommend Jua Retreat. Magnus and Lillemor Hultin

What a brilliant 4 nights we’ve just had at Jua. Completely relaxed, exceptional service and beautiful surroundings helped to make it a perfect stay. The food was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for Hassan and his team. The Villa was amazing. Wakening to the sounds of Zanzibar and fresh coffee each morning only added to the experience. Cannot recommend this resort enough. Can’t wait to return

We had a wonderful holiday at Jua. The staff were excellent and organised a great celebration for my husband’s birthday. The food was delicious, and the massages very relaxing. The hotel staff also organised snorkelling for us, which was lovely. All in all we felt extremely relaxed and well taken care of at the end of our five days.
