For a quintessential tropical island getaway, Meliá Zanzibar is just the ticket. Situated in the northeast, famous for its iridescent turquoise sea and dazzlingly white beaches, Meliá is an exclusive all-inclusive resort offering total luxury among 40 acres of privately owned land. Complete with its own exclusive stretch of beach paradise and encircled by a beautiful natural coral reef, Meliá provides first-class barefoot luxury. Just 45 minutes from Zanzibar’s historic capital of Stone Town, guests can also venture a little further to explore this beautiful and fascinating island, should they be able to tear themselves away from the beach!
Offering 124 rooms with a range of accommodation options to suit your budget, the establishment offers guests a choice between private villas, each with their own private garden and infinity pool, to romantic rooms lovingly adorned with authentic Zanzibar furnishings, ornately carved beds and private terraces. All rooms have an al fresco tropical rain shower – the perfect winding-down treat after an active day in the ocean.
The Ocean Front Pavilion houses 7 superb rooms atop the estate’s cliff edge, affording breathtaking views of the glittering Indian Ocean. Made in to be rustically chic, the rooms have authentic ‘makuti’ roofs made with leaves from the surrounding coconut trees. There are a range of packages available and guests are highly recommended to contact the hotel to discuss which best suits their requirements.
The resort boasts a quirkily stocked curio shop, including items such as locally crafted jewelry. There’s also a beach club, tennis court and two large swimming pools surrounded by comfortable sun loungers. There are a number of dining options available, each serving a mouthwatering menu of fresh and locally sourced produce wherever possible – and with plenty of seafood in the mix, of course. Spices Restaurant has a distinct Zanzibari feel, offering an African Arabian buffet- style dining experience in a relaxed environment.
And a more exclusive option comes in the form of Aqua, perched on the resort’s Cliffside. Featuring stunning views of the ocean, it offers superb Mediterranean cuisine to Premium or The Level guests.
