Zanzibar, the Spice Island. Known for its vibrant colors, friendly people and delicious food enveloped in spices from all over the world, this African gem is a must do for any travelers wish list. However, the one thing Zanzibar is known for above all else, is its beaches. There’s no way you can come to the island and not experience the endless sea of blue surrounded it, and if you’re looking for the best place to indulge, there’s nowhere better than the DoubleTree Resort in Nungwi.
Situated on the most northern tip of Zanzibar in Nungwi, the DoubleTree Resort is a beach lovers paradise. From the moment you arrive the breeze from the Indian Ocean embraces you with soothing kisses and the amazing staff (*waves at Nelson & Victor*) welcomes you with a refreshing drink and the most delicious fresh baked chocolate chip cookie ever (seriously where can I buy these?!), a signature DoubleTree treat.
The rooms are decorated in traditional Zanzibar style with plush beds, colorful artwork adorning the walls and spectacular ocean views. Feel free to relax in the cute wicker chairs on your balcony, enjoy the scene and send “wish you were here” pics to friends back home using the free and reliable wifi. Praises!
You can enjoy a dip in the plunge pool and sip on drinks from Dolphin’s Pool Bar, sample international and fusion flavors at Fisherman Bar & Grill, enjoy yoga on the beach or do a little snorkeling. Speaking of beaches, Nungwi beach is simply breathtaking. Unlike some other resorts that cut you off from local life, the best part of staying at the DoubleTree Resort in Nungwi is that it keeps you right in the heart of it. From helping local women catch fish along the sandbank to watching the men play soccer as the sunset, I could not get enough of Nungwi beach. Even sitting under an umbrella doing absolutely nothing will leave you speechless when the view in front of you is an endless sight of some of the bluest waters your eyes will ever see.
From the location, staff and free wifi, to the friendly locals and heavenly white sand beaches, if I had to go to Zanzibar 1000 times, then I would pick the DoubleTree Resort in Nungwi as my hotel choice each and every time. Officially #hotelwhisperer approved!Asante DoubleTree! I’ll definitely be back!
