After much research and debate, we selected Tulia as one of the destinations for our honeymoon in September 2021 and could not have been happier with our decision. Right from the first moment, everything about our stay there was first class. The hotel was responsive to our questions and organised an airport transfer who was waiting for us when we landed. The hotel grounds are beautiful, and our villa (we went for one of the waterfront options directly facing the sea) was breathtaking. It is a perfect destination for a romantic couple's trip, especially if you are travelling for a special occasion. The space is huge, and the private terrace area facing the ocean is spectacular. What really sets Tulia apart in my view (and I saw this referenced in other reviews) was the staff. They have a real army of attentive, high energy and high positivity people in the family who just make you feel so welcome and well looked after. The meals were excellent (our choice was all-inclusive and this is a real AI deal - only the cigars by the bar cost extra if you want one!) The dinner and lunch menus change on a daily basis and there's enough variety with breakfast to keep you interested. The hotel also does a great job of providing entertainment in the evenings during dinner service. They have a modern and well equipped gym on site and offer various excursion options at an extra cost if you so wish. We just loved our time here and it was over far too quickly. A big thank you to the entire team for making our honeymoon experience so incredible.

Tulia hotel is supercomfortable place, where we stayed one week. This place is really paradise. Everyone in the hotel was nice and very kind. Thank you Patra and Veronika for everything, both of you are really like heard of this hotel, people from first moment till last goodbye can feel, because of you, like in another world. Hotel has amazing garden, and the best view to the sea. Especially with some good drink, which you can choose from all kind of alcohol and no alcohol drinks. Sea is clear, blue like nowhere else, so you can look all day and still you will be exited. Food is super delicious. I like fish and seafood, so for me it was never-ending foodparadice :) During the stay we had complimentary massage, which was so nice and luxury, also we tried paddle-board which is free for guest. In this hotel we really enjoy every moment. Thank you again for memorable time

I have never written a review for a hotel up until now but I am beyond impressed with our experience and I wanted to sing my praises! Upon arrival, we felt like celebrities, we were greeted at the entrance with drums and when we approached the entrance we were offered a gorgeous fruit platter and welcome drink. We were looked after the whole time by Veronika and another brunette lady (apologies I cannot remember her name) who couldn't do enough for us. They were always on hand to ensure we had everything we needed to make our trip special. We opted for the beach villa and it exceeded our expectations. The views of the sea were SURREAL. We had the breakfast package so could enjoy our breakfast seaside every morning. The food was extremely delicious. During our stay we enjoyed a complimenatry massage and great entertainment. The staff there could not be more hospitable - so friendly, energetic and vibrant! Truly the best customer experience I have experienced. As we checked out we were given a goodie bag filled with a magnet, spices, bracelets, keyrings, and a letter of appreciation - the icing on the cake to a wonderful trip! My partner and I have had the privilege to stay in many five-star resorts but this was by far the best experience we have had. We will definitely recommend this resort to our friends and family and hope to return one day. Thank you again to Veronika and the rest of the team!

This resort has a wow factor when you first arrive it will not fail to impress you and exceed your expectations. We chose the all inclusive and it truly was as advertised. The Staff, which their are too many to mention all strive to be make your stay carefree. The accommodations are spacious and so nice! For those who to work out the gym actually is “crossfit like”! The meals and drinks are fantastic and the service is professional and with a smile. I cannot imagine there is a better place on Zanzibar!
