Zanzibar Honeymoon

02 April 2013

I believe we made the perfect choice for our honeymoon. A honeymoon in Paradise – Zanzibar.
Upon our arrival in Zanzibar, the first thing I felt was the atmosphere of a tropical island. This made me feel very excited! I could not wait to arrive at our hotel.

This was only the beginning of honeymoon memories that will last us a lifetime!
We were met by our transfer and taken to our hotel timeously. The most popular resorts are situated upon the North-East coastline of Zanzibar – upon a true paradise palm fringed stretch of beach. The beach is idyllic with powder-soft white sand and the water is crystal clear. Our hotel – 4* Ocean Paradise – was also located here.

The first thing that caught our attention was the large, stunning, modern reception area. We received a welcome drink upon our arrival and had a look around.

The resort is set within stunning gardens with thousands of palms throughout the resort - paradise!

I could not stop taking photos of all the palm trees towering far above the highest of buildings.

We were taken to our bungalow-style room, which was located in the hotel garden. The room was spacious and had a large bathroom with a shower.
All the bungalows are spread throughout the hotel gardens.

Everything about the resort was immaculate. We thoroughly enjoyed the resort cuisine. Breakfast and Dinners was buffet style – offering an enormous variety of food, all of excellent standards. We totally over-ate ourselves… We were on half-board basis as this specific resort does not have an all inclusive meal option. Guests can however upgrade to Full Board (breakfast, lunch and dinner), which might be a good idea as food and drinks are expensive (about 2-3 times as expensive as in SA).
This is a very nice resort for couples – and that is exactly why we chose it. There is however recently some other new resorts in the area, which might be a better value for money option in comparison to Ocean Paradise, which are standard All Inclusive.
Something we really enjoyed, was sitting in the pool-bar of the resort’s enormous swimming pool while enjoying our cocktails.
There are so many things to do in Zanzibar. The activities we chose to do were a snorkeling trip to the nearby Mnemba reef, which was really a stunning experience. We also took a half-day tour to visit Stone Town, which was a really interesting. The rest of our time was spent lazing around on the stunning beach, swimming and exploring.

We stayed a total of 7 nights and returned home with a good golden tan and loads of great memories.

I can highly recommend Zanzibar to anybody who is looking for a different, magical island experience!
