This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The staff is great!!! The food is reasonably priced and quite acceptable. A nice breakfast is included. The eating area is picturesque and as well as the rest of the resort, quaint and quiet. BYOB. There is a fridge in the nice size stand alone room which is clean, housing a spectacular bed and excellent bathroom. If you want a place away from the crowds and don't care about a great beach, making it more affordable, than this is the place for you.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I had a wonderful stay at Furaha. What I wanted most was to get away and be able to relax completely, and Furaha certainly provided me with that. It did have the added bonus though of good internet access when I needed it, and the fridge, airconditioning and even TV in the room was a great plus. The drawbacks is that there is no beach, and so unlike many of the more touristy places, you cannot sit on your deckchair and wade into the ocean. There was a great pool though.

The best thing though about Furaha is the staff. Mohammed and Nasoor especially stand out. Their every desire was to keep me happy, and I did not want for anything while I was there.

I would definitely go there again if I want to get away from it all!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

i had three interesting days n two night in furaha, the memories of which will linger long in my memory.
the management and staff of Furaha makes you feel at home and prompt in their response. i left for Zanzibar without a clear itinerary, but that changed when i got to Furaha, their team were able to help in drafting a planned itinerary and arranged vehicle to convey us to various places of interest.
after a long of scuba diving, snookering, party and sight seeing, one is always renew by the serenity of the furaha resort, and Zanzibar fresh meal is never in short supply.
