Driving into Sea Cliff Resort & Spa you know you have found something special. The 4 km road through a coconut plantation that leads to the hotel is a reminder of the Zanzibar of old. Peace and tranquility, no other hotels or busy roads just open space and palm trees.As you enter the courtyard filled with tropical flowers and palms the view of the ocean stands before you. With our traditional makuti roofs and Arabic towers lit by brass lights you know this is not a typical hotel. Its an hotel built with our location in mind. It is a unique combination of modern facilities mixed with the original exotic architecture of historical Zanzibar. Situated on our property is the first and only world-class 9 hold 18 tee golf course in Zanzibar. We boast a full size driving range, practice greens, Pro-Shop with all our golfing needs and apparel, clubs to hire, carts and Club House on the beach. A golf pro is in attendance at all times. Sea Cliff Resort & Spa really is the place to visit.

Great staff. What I hated was the totally uncomfortable bed. Beach is nice but the quality of sea is poor - lowtide and there is mud. I do not recommend if you like swimming. We had to pay extra charge for New Years eve. It was not organized well, bad singer and bad DJ. 31st Dec

I chose this hotel in spite of the fact that it achieved only grade of 8 out of 10. Eventually I believe it should be 9+. The only small fault is the bathroom. The room is nice and spacious. However the bathroom is old- old toilette and the shower is done through an old and

I am sorry about your break-up. I would suggest to try them again, maybe their lines were down. Then they will not respond via email or phone.

Hi Sara, we did Stone Town. There's a few things to do there. Unfortunately never heard of the Mnemba Island until now so can't really say.

Hi, Yes we do allow day visitors also and for that the charges would be $ 35.00 per person that you can use on your food and drinks. Above and over can be settled at the front desk. Thank You.
