Breezes Beach Club*****

In 1992 we came to Zanzibar with a romantic idea of opening a hotel. We wanted to create a home, which was exotic and personalized, with high standards yet unmarred by the lack of personalization of chain hotels that we have experienced in our many years of traveling. Our family was based in East Africa and been in the hospitality business for over 30 years.We located our favorite site, which we selected with a stringent criterion; a beautiful beach, far away from other hotel developments to ensure privacy for our guests and an area where we felt a connection with the people of the local village.Accommodation : There are three room categories -Standard Rooms – Standard rooms are located further away from the sea on the property with a terrace and garden view. Standard and Deluxe are identical in terms of décor and size.Deluxe Rooms – Located on ground floor of bungalows with terrace.Suites – Located on upper floor of bungalows with large balcony and sun beds. The Suites have a walk in dressing room and larger bathroom with large terrace, private sunbathing area, and a covered outdoor lounge area.Deluxe rooms and Suites are in close proximity to the sea.
