    It is a fantastic hotel- one of the most beautiful hotels in the world where I have ever stayed. The location is amazing, the rooms are awesome with a breathtaking view, the perfect service, all staff is very friendly and helpful, the impeccable cleanliness, and very good food. The possibility to have breakfast and to have dinner on our terrace made our stay very special. It is a niche hotel of the highest level. After the Boutique Matlai Boutique it will be difficult to find better.

    Room: Our room was HUGE! Also very stylish and equipped - bathtub, tea set, makeup area, etc. The pictures really don't do justice to the size of the room. We also had a beautiful balcony + lawn with ocean view. Service: This is the true heart of where Matlai excels- EVERYTHING is built around providing excellent service and giving you the choice of what to do and when. When you arrive you're given a phone preloaded with the manager and Butler's numbers- and can call the Head Butler whenever you need. You can have your meals where you want, when you want, choose from the menu, even order things off the menu or ask for changes. We were sick for some of our stay and Salim checked in on us constantly and offered advice on herbal remedies Food: Zanzibar isnt exactly known for its cusine. But Matlai was no doubt the best weve eaten on the island. There's a wide range of different foods, for both breakfast and dinner (definitely take full board) and the food was delicious. One caveat is that some dishes had spices we didnt like, and the menu doesnt go into much detail about the dishes. Cleanliness: Everything is in tip top shape, as youd expect from a hotel this caliber. Charity: They donate to the local village - helping with trash removal, medical supplies, school supplies and more. Misc: Open air cinema! You can reserve a private screening for two picked from a list of films! (no extra charge). Staff: Everyone was super professional, friendly and helpful. Anything you'll ask is met with an almost fierce "no problem!". They will also gladly share information about Zanzibar, places around the island, or just chat for a bit. Turtles: They have a turtle garden. With turtles. Can confirm turtles are cute.

    - Hot water ran out a couple times - Menu lacks specificity on ingredients/spices for some dishes

    Excellent staff and amazing setting. It’s a little slice of secluded paradise. The food is excellent. The coconut and crab soup and the grilled lobster were the best. Very good breakfast.

    Nothing it’s perfect.

    Great location mid way down the beach, felt secluded in an amazing tropical garden on the beach with incredible sunrise beach view. Their team was amazing from the beach security guard to the butler. Everyone was always helpful and eager to get whatever we needed. The mobile phone they gave us was great to call the butler to order meals or drinks even when away from the resort. Great small boutique style resort with impeccable service perfect for romantic couple or group. Highly recommend
