Good place to relax but no thrills
The beach is beautiful. The property well kept . The rooms are large but spartan . No frills . The food is basic and not a lot of choices . The only negative feedback I have is that the day I checked out at 6.00 I was not provided with any food even though my breakfast was paid . There was no food to buy at the airport.

Super Location – super Personal – super Aufenthalt
Wer es etwas ruhiger und abseits der Touristenmengen mag, wird es lieben. Wir verbrachten vier Tage im Sarabi Resort und waren begeistert. Die Anlage ist total schön und direkt am wunderschönen Strand. Daneben gibt es ein kleines Fischerdorf. Die Bungalows sind sauber und zweckmäßig eingerichtet, man hat darin alles, was man braucht. Wir hatten einen Bungalow mit eigenem Jacuzzi und einem traumhaften Ausblick aufs Meer. Die Betreiber sind superfreundlich und herzlich, insgesamt ist das Personal total nett. Das Frühstück ist gut und auch das Essen im Restaurant hat immer geschmeckt! Am Pool und am Strand gibt es genügend Liegen und Möglichkeiten zum Chillen. Wir würden es auf jeden Fall wieder buchen.

The most private room is KAA.
The best hotel that we stayed during our two week holiday in Zanzibar. The swimming pool was quite deep to swim joyfully but it was small for all guests. The hotel has their own private beach. Also the beach was extremely long and clean. The options of breakfast and dinner were so tasteful. Our room which was KAA (Highly recommended) that has own spa pool with glamorous beach, ocean and summit view. The room was so spacious. Last but not least, dear Annika and Nick were so helpful all the time.
