Karafuu Beach Resort: located at the east coast of Zanzibar, ideally located on a blissful stretch of palm-fringed beach with white sand and dazzling blue water – just what you’re after.
The spacious, cool reception area under makuti (palm thatch) is impressive; especially when you’re visiting the resort for the first time. There is an enormous pool around which you’ll find guests soaking up the sun. The hotel has all the expected facilities: fully-equipped Diving center, boutiques, tennis courts, Gymnasium and Spa. The eastern side of the island is greatly influenced by the tide. You can sunbathe on the beach and slip straight into the water and swim far out when the tide is high. When the tide recedes, you have to wade out to the fringing reef, which can be fun if you want to look for marine life in the shallows.
