Karafuu Beach Resort & Spa
Set on a secluded stretch of powder-white sand and a gorgeous tropical garden on the island’s east coast, just 50 minutes drive from the airport, Karafuu is the only hotel where you can enjoy a comfortable swim in the ocean at low tide. A 200 meters path in front of the hotel leads you from the beach to a giant natural swimming pool. Whether relaxing on a sunbed, taking a dip in the crystal clear Indian Ocean waters or enjoying a moonlit stroll through endless palm groves, Karafuu Beach Resort and Spa redefines luxury.
What you will find
The hotel has all the expected facilities: spacious pools, fully-equipped Diving center, boutiques, tennis courts, gymnasium and Spa. The rooms are extremely comfortable and styled in a modern Zanzibar theme. They provide a welcome relief from the sun when you have spent the day by the pool or diving and lazing on the beach. The eastern side of the island is greatly influenced by the tide. You can sunbathe on the beach and slip straight into the water and swim far out when the tide is high. When the tide recedes, you have to wade out to the fringing reef, which can be fun if you want to look for marine life in the shallows. Karafuu is one of the few hotels on the east coast where you can enjoy a comfortable and safe swim in the ocean at low tide. A concrete path in front of the hotel leads you from the beach to a permanent natural depression in the ocean bed just 200 meters offshore, offering a giant natural swimming pool deep enough for small boats to moor in.
The hotel has 138 rooms, divided into different categories according to guests’ needs. All the rooms have makuti (palm-thatch) roofs and are decorated in a modern style with some Zanzibari characteristics. They are all well maintained and comfortable, with air-conditioner, ceiling fan, television, Wi-Fi, mini-bar, telephone, tea-coffee maker, hairdryer, safe box and en-suite spacious bathroom. Each room has its own veranda and the beds have mosquito nets. Furthermore, they all are completely furnished with air conditioning and ceiling fan, safe deposit box, Wi-Fi connectivity, hairdryer, telephone, TV tea/coffee maker, mini fridge.
