stunning ocean view and fluffy pillows is all we need for an enjoyable weekend! The hotel is a bit far from town, however, for those wishing to rest after a long day in Stone Town, you will be enjoying the terrace by the pool.

Our stay in Golden Tulip Zanzibar Resort was awesome. Right from check in, the staff were all smiles,great and friendly. The rooms were super clean and had a great city view. The meals were very well done and the staff in the restaurant were all amazing. Got to finally meet Jacqueline and yes she's got an awesome personality always finding out how the stay is and areas of improvement. Cast, Daniel, Witness, Baraka, Musa, Modesta and Masoud were among the best staff. Their services were super fast in case one needed anything. Thank you for the surprises that you pulled on my birthday and the birthday dinner too. It was an amazing experience at the hotel. I would love to go back soon.
