LOCATION

Zanzibar, the name alone sounds exotic enough to entice you into making a trip to the area! Bathed by the Indian Ocean, this dreamlike archipelago is at the confluence of several cultures, such as the African culture, the Eastern influences and the perfumes from India. Its seaside landscapes have made it an extremely sought-after destination since the dawn of time.

Overlooking the sea, Melià Zanzibar Hotel has reserved for itself an ideal spot on the East coast of Ujunga, the archipelago’s main island. Nestled between the Kiwengwa Pongwe Forest with elegant palm trees and a 300-meter long fine sandy beach, this luxurious address gives travelling families the opportunity to have a discrete getaway, in line with the rhythms of the surrounding natural environment.

From the Zanzibar International Airport and the Capital, Stone Town, you will only require a 45-minutes’ drive to get to this little paradise. Transfers can be organized by the hotel through reservation.

 

DESCRIPTION

Melià Zanzibar perfectly blends modernity and tradition into a preserved landscape. Its architecture with contemporary lines brilliantly integrates certain features of Swahili architecture. The combination of coral stone, a symbol of the region, and wood balustrades carved with geometric patterns is reminiscent of the facades of the most beautiful palaces of Stone Town, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for their beauty. All these will make you feel like real pashas on African soil!

Several pavilions framed by greenery, house comfortable rooms and luxurious family suites. For even more privacy, there are exclusive villas with private gardens and pools that overlook the beautiful sea.

At the heart of the hotel facility, the infinity pool rivals the beautiful blue colour of the sea whose turquoise waters borders the Melià Zanzibar Private Beach. The hotel’s renowned jetty progresses into the ocean and invites you to take a walk, especially when it is adorned by the nocturnal lights of dusk.

Without any doubts, you will have all you need here, to enjoy a 5-star all-inclusive experience full of good surprises and relaxation.

The hotel is comprised of:

  • 130 Rooms and suites
  • 7 Villas
  • 5 Restaurants
  • 4 Bars
  • 1 Private beach
  • 2 Outdoor pools
  • 1 Spa
  • 1 Fitness centre
  • 1 Tennis court
  • 1 Business centre
  • 1 Shop
  • 1 FREE kids-club for children aged 4 to 12 years old
  • 1 High-quality babysitting service

 

ACCOMMODATIONS

Being cosy and bright, the Melià Room is adorned with neutral and natural colours that leave the limelight in the beautiful blue colour of the sea and the green coconut palms which you can behold form its private terrace. Furniture made of traditional exotic wood decorates the 50 sqm room space. The extreme luxury of this room that’s open to the outside is the external tropical shower that allows you to slip under the jets of hot water while enjoying the incredible panorama of the Indian Ocean. The Melià rooms, which are on their own ideal for parents and a toddler, can also be connecting/adjoining, to the delight of large families!

 

The Family Room has it all to enthrall the demanding families. Being vast and well arranged, it allows for the preservation of everyone’s privacy, since Mom and Dad have a master bedroom that is separate from that of the children and which has a private balcony. In addition to the comfortable lounge, the large table will host gourmet snacks between two swims, while the outdoor tropical shower allows both the young and old to relax.

The Three-Bedroom Villa, The Level, combines intimacy and independence. A 1,220 sqm tropical garden, guarantees a complete disconnection and keeps you away from the turbulence of the world. Children love working themselves out in this green park! Three bedrooms with as many bathrooms, a large living room and an equipped kitchen complete the picture. Its vast terrace probably offers one of the best views in the entire hotel. In this prestigious setting, nothing is left to chance from the Persian carpets on the floor to the living room’s beautifully crafted furniture inspired by the Eastern cultures. It is, however, its spectacular private 20-meters-long pool that will undoubtedly grasp the unanimous vote from everyone

 

GASTRONOMY

Just as its pretty nickname of Spice Island indicates, Zanzibar promises you a high-end culinary adventure. At Melià Zanzibar, restaurants and bars work non-stop in order to make you experience a true gastronomic journey.

Being inspired by Stone Town’s spice market, the colours and flavours of its spices, Spices Restaurant offers a buffet that is mainly designed by Eastern and African influences. Each day, you will get to savour a different theme that will take you around the globe. Foodies will have the opportunity to savor Indian, African and even Swahili cuisines. The spice island is also full of seafood, with fresh and delicate flavours: the lobsters and crabs here are very delicious.

Very close to the sea, and under the foliage of the palm trees, the Gabi Beach presents itself as an escapade destination, at just a kilometre away from the hotel. It is the place set aside for you to be engulfed by the vibrations of the lounge music and sipping a drink while laying comfortably on a Balinese bed. To satisfy the little ogres’ taste buds, the menu offers excellent wood-fired pizzas with fresh colourful salads. The food lovers can feast on the subtly grilled seafood enhanced with spices.

For a dinner out of the ordinary, The Jetty will make you feel like eating while sailing through the waves. At the end of the hotel’s private jetty, under the braided roof of its straw hut, the restaurant offers a few tables that overlook the sea. What’s worth noting for the romantic ones is that the place is very suitable for a tête-à-tête!

The water sports centre, as well as the tennis court, are also must-see spaces wherein children can spend their boundless energy.

 

FOR FAMILIES

Around the Gabi Beach club, you will have unlimited exploration possibilities. All you need to do is get on one of the sea kayaks rented by the hotel in order to get a closer look at the wonders of the nearby coral reef. Families who love exploring the seabed will be delighted by the nearby diving centre, the 5 stars One Ocean PADI. For a change, they should not miss the chance to stop by the Mnemba Island and its surroundings. being visited by the great men and women of this world, such as Bill Clinton or Naomi Campbell, this idyllic lagoon located in the Northeast of Kiwengwa, has the best diving spots in the entirety of Zanzibar.

Why not embark on a blue safari in the footsteps of the turtles of the Nungwi Shrine? This natural aquarium preserves and protects these beautiful reptiles and allows the lucky ones to swim alongside them. For the enthusiasts, the hotel also organizes small safaris on the continent, in Tanzania, in the parks of Serengeti and Selous.

If your smala tend to fancy the greens of the forest more rather the blue of the sea, then you should head for the Jozani National Park. At first light, you will get to see rare monkeys, including the impressive Red Colobus. A tropical adventure that will be appealing to the entire family!

Finally, let your feet take you to Stone Town, a fantastic capital and cultural heiress of the archipelago. Its ancestral architecture which is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site leaves no one unmoved. The city’s famous carved wooden doors are true works of art.

To optimize your trip, Melià Zanzibar organizes cultural and sporting outings according to your desires, make a quick inquiry regarding this option before your departure!

 

FOR THE PARENTS

Set according to Karen Blixen’s famous book, The African Farm, the Melià Zanzibar’s spa promises the wonders of a trip to the African soil. An original range of care treatments is inspired by local traditions. Little Guest loves the Absolute Zamani experience, a ritual inspired by African philosophy, which will undoubtedly make you lose track of time. In here, local oils, plants and herbs will enamour your bodies!

What’s even more surprising is the must-experience African potato wrap and its generous massage. The highly hydrating power of these fruits of the earth, helps the skin to fight against free radicals and to regenerate itself. This care treatment should imperatively be booked after a day of sunbathing at the beach.

For a spicy outing for two, spice farmers’ farms populate the region of Melià Zanzibar. Visiting the plantations (pepper, vanilla, nutmeg…) can enable you to learn a lot about the local cultivation, but above all give you the chance of bringing home excellent samples which can be sprinkled on your plate to enhance them (a great way to feel like being on vacation all year round!)
