Coral Rock is one of the most popular small to mid-size hotels in Zanzibar. We offer incredible views and an authentic Zanzibari experience that encourages local and cultural interaction within a functioning Swahili fishing village. Our aim is authenticity & value for money. The unrivaled view and location has been home to international fashion shoots by the likes of Sports Illustrated and FHM, as well as almost half a dozen reality TV shows on account of the striking and unusual natural beauty and panoramic vistas that can be enjoyed from every room and facility at the hotel.

As a non smoker one doesn’t watch out for such stuff ;-). But I think there are two tables just outside the little restaurant overlooking the beach and the sea where most of the smokers hang out. I saw ashtrays out there. Nevertheless it’s all fairly small but you are always outside, so smoking won’t be any problem.
