Zanzibar for… honeymooners
Zanzibar is an ever-popular choice with honeymooners; it is very romantic with its beautiful white, sandy beaches, clear turquoise waters and some fantastic places to stay. The bonus of being a conveniently close location to both the Tanzanian mainland as well as Kenya makes this the perfect choice for a premier safari and beach honeymoon without the extra travel to the Seychelles or Mauritius. Here we give our top choices for a perfect honeymoon on Zanzibar.
Our top 5 properties for honeymooners on Zanzibar:
Only 6 villas and incredibly attentive service make for an intimate atmosphere which, coupled with the beautiful beach, excellent spa and spectacular food, makes this a place hard to beat!
On the smaller island of Pemba, here you have barefoot luxury in one of the most exclusive spots, completely away from the crowds. Some of the best diving and snorkelling in East Africa awaits and lots of romantic touches.
The sumptuous villas here come with a private lap pool meaning that you hardly need to leave your villa at all! For when you do, there is a choice of restaurants, a large pool and a quiet beach, away from the busier parts of the island.
Zanzibar Palace Hotel
A quirky, boutique choice right in the heart of Stone Town which is perfect for exploring the unique history and culture of Zanzibar. A former Sultan’s palace, it is full of character and the rooftop bath of the honeymoon suite is a really romantic touch!
Situated in the buzzy north of the island at Nungwi, there is a modern and vibrant feel to this boutique hotel. Perfect for honeymooners who don’t want to feel trapped within the confines of a resort, it is within walking distance of bars and restaurants, but with a relaxed and romantic atmosphere at the hotel itself.
