I must say hotel is well done and maintained. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. Also, what they called « shared living area », is separate building on the territory of the villa. So your room is completely your own room with own entrance on the ground or on the 1st floor. I

Dear Alexey, Sunny greetings from Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa! First of all, thank you very much for taking your time and reviewing our property with beautiful words to our little paradise and personnel. We are honored to know that you enjoyed our thematic buffet night around the pool. It is certain that we have tides that set the days and overall a very quiet place where tranquility is the main asset, however we take a very good note and we will be alert for the ones that want to be more actives. I hope to see you again, Best regards

Yes they do but it depends on what you wish, I know that they organize not too big occasions to not disturb other guests. You should contact reception directly and they will answer soon !

Yes, there is - and this is by far the best value - as opposed to opting for bed and breakfast package, and then choosing to have Meals etc as you go. The latter works out so much more expensive. Also All inclusive includes the weekly barbecue, daily lunchtime grill by the beach, all meals, all freshly prepared juices and most alcohol. Please also note that as this resort is quite remote, you don’t have many other eating options nearby, unless you have a car or an expensive round trip taxi ride to take you much further towards the capital. So if you don’t take all inclusive and have no transport, then you are literally snookered.

Fairly relaxed and casual. Taxi journey is about an hour from airport. Not the best road at night!!! I would get White Sand villas to organise transfers if possible. Enjoy!
