    The villas are beautiful spacious clean and beautifully decorated. The gardens around the villas were stunning and the plant name plaques were useful for the amateur horticulturist ;-) the staff is super friendly and professional. The food was great and there are some fun daily activities to enjoy. It’s a great place to stay if you want some luxury and piece and quiet! There aren’t even any sellers on the beach trying to constantly sell you stuff.

    New Love

    Our stay was more than I ever expected. My new beau suggested White Sands in Zanzibar for my birthday getaway. This is where we fell in love and experienced the life that would could have together. I would have loved him no matter where we were but White Sands made it the sweetest dream. We promised to do a two week stay next year. The private villa and the staff were just amazing. We had a butler who drew my bath in the outside bathtub...perfection. The food was also fantastic.

    Most Amazing hotel ever!

    Honestly the most incredible hotel we have ever stayed in. The location is stunning, right on the incredible white sand beach of Paje. The villa will literally take your breath away, but then there is the staff; nothing is too much for them at all, and the butler service was impeccable! Definitely stay here!

    Beautiful boutique hotel for a relaxing holiday

    We stayed in the 1 bedroom beach villa for 4 nights and had a very nice experience. Particularly liked the fact that the bedroom is a separate building from the living room that has a service entrance which gives much more privacy. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. The pictures on the site do not do justice to the property as it definitely is more beautiful in real life. Management was prompt to resolve some small issue and was very professional. The food was ok but nothing to rave about so could use a bit more effort. We can highly recommend this hotel and will be back !

    Perfection!

    What a stunning property! We’ve stayed at many luxury hotels around the world and this was in the top 3 at LEAST. Ground including the beach were immaculately maintained. Sargasso is an issue affecting many islands and coasts in recent years and we can tell you not all of them clear it from the beach. The villa (or compound as we called it) was just gorgeous. Soft tones and quality materials. The cleaning crew was excellent at being unseen. The plunge pool was absolute heaven. The villa had total privacy from the other villas and outsiders alike- and the space! So much room to relax. Plenty of beach bars and restaurants down the beach if you’re looking for a change. We can see why the staff had such genuine smiles because we were smiling from the moment we walked in. We would absolutely go back. It was perfection!

    Very beautiful hotel and good kite surfing school

    The hotel is very beautiful and people working there are very kind. The kite surf school is very good. The food was good and they organized also a African night with shows and African food. We recommend this hotel for 100% and would love coming back. The AC was not working but was immediately repaired. We got a free wellness treatment for the inconvenience.

    Magnifique

    L'hôtel est tout simplement magnifique, sa place est une des plus belles de l'île. Les petites villas sont superbes et œuvres de surprises (piscine privée, douche et baignoire d'extérieur...) Mention spéciale pour les repas, on se croirait dans un restaurant gastronomique :-)
