Dan reported that they had a wonderful time on the island and shared some photos and feedback with us – ahsante sana! We look forward to hearing from you again soon when the longing for tropical island paradise gets too much ?
Wow… Wow!!! What an experience…Sea Cliff is something special. The hotel, views, rooms, food and entertainment is right up there. The staff were amazing and very polite – often not very good with English, but we made it work 🙂
Our 1st day, we rested by the infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Spectacular views! Around 17h00 we headed to the jetty for some cocktails and watched the sun set.
Next day we caught the resort’s free shuttle to Stone Town and did a walking tour around the town of the main sights.
Sunday we did an amazing Safari Blue Tour. This was my highlight and I would go back to Zanzibar just for this!
Our last day we just lazed around the pool and enjoyed the views.
I would most definitely return to Zanzibar.
Thank you so much to you and your team for a well co-ordinated trip.
