This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It was a perfect stay, except that you can not swim in the ocean and walk on the beach from the resort. But for visiting Stone Town and doing things in town, it's perfect. Staff was excellent!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We had a beautiful stay at Maruhubi - just way too short. You could easily stay here for a week or ideally 2 and really relax. There is also much to do around Zanzibar which the wonderful manager Juma can facilitate for you.

Maruhubi Beach Resort is beautiful accommodation in a lovely, handy position. Juma is terrific and felt like a dear friend to us. We had had a bad experience in Dar es Salaam, and arriving here felt like a real respite from everything.

We visited during low season, which was nice because Maruhubi wasn't full. On the downside, daily rains meant it was hard for us to do some of the activities we would have liked to do, like snorkelling.

We will definitely be back for a longer stay in the future. Thankyou Juma and team.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We truly enjoyed our six nights stay at Maruhubi Beach Villar in Jan (See SerenitySC review). The location is excellent as we had the best of both worlds. Zanzibar town is only few minutes away with is hustle and bustle and excellent sea food restaurants. The beach at Maruhubi is cleaner than most beaches in Zanzibar. It has Marhubi ruins and Mtoni Palace within walking distance.
I, as most in our party of 20, would highly recommend the hotel for its central location, lovely accomodation and very friendly service.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We booked 10 makuti style beach villa rooms out of 12 avaiilable for 20 adults available we needed for Zanzibar reunion. Suggest book room 1 to 5 as these have good sea views and not too close to Mangrove bushes. Rooms are clean, well furnished (dbl bed and single bed per room) with fridge and electronic safes. Breakfast was basic but healthy, mandazi (Zanzibari doughnut) fresh bread/toasts, fresh fruit tea/coffee and egss made to order.
The beach is clean and in low tide can walk for miles. This will become star rated hotel/villas in future when further rooms are added. Most of us left Zanzibar many years ago and knew of Mtoni Mahurubi location and in those days it was undeveloped and considered far away (yes only 4Km) from our Stone town houses. This is a perfect location close enough to reach town centre by taxi or local Dala Dala buses which run regularly and are cheap at one off price of TSH300. Ideal get away from the hussle of stone town when needed. The site manager Juma was extremely helpful arranging taxis and buses for all but like in all other tourist destinations one must accept commission/profit is a way of life.
We also liked the fact that we could buy locally grown seasonal fruits from traders outside the villas main entrance security gates. We regularly bought mangoes, pineapples, mangostines, rambuttan and delicious coconuts (madaf) at lower price than sold in stone town market.
Would highly reccomend Mahurubi Villas secure comfortable stay in Zanzibar close enough to stone town, beach front location clean at reasonable costs with personal service, than those 4/5 star faceless standard overprced hotels in town.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Quite good, we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. A relaxed atmosphere, and friendly and helpful staff. Food wasn't great. We found the prices of the accommodation on Zanzibar in general highly overvalued compared to many other similar locations worldwide, this one was good compared to the rest but still overpriced. It's still under construction, while rooms after two years feel used.
