Luxury Honeymoon in Zanzibar
Zanzibar is a great honeymoon destination. The wonderful beaches, the teeming plant and marine life, the many activities that can be indulged in – all make for an unforgettable holiday. Zanzibar has just the right place for a luxury honeymoon – the Dongwe Ocean View Hotel. There’s a reason why this is an award-winning hotel.
It’s on the south-eastern coast and has the most spectacular views. The hotel is meters from the beach and the ocean. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with the air conditioning and private patios. Every single aspect of human comfort is taken into consideration. From the wooden deck to the rattan hammocks that let you lie over the sand, the relaxation beds and the outdoor pool that lets you look at the waters at a distance, everything is peaceful and calm.
Indulge in your sporty and adventurous side with a good selection of activities and tours.
The honeymoon suite is airy, secluded and very romantic. Dongwe knows how to look after its honeymooners – flowers on the bed are just one of the ways to do it. Lounge on the beach and wade into warm waters, when the sands get too warm, move to the private pool and drink a cool cocktail. If you’d like to sleep, choose a spot under the palm trees that dot the beach and take a snooze.
Menus include snack bars and both local and international cuisine.
Close to Dongwe is another fabulous experience any honeymooning couple may love- a meal at the Rock Restaurant. A sister concern of the Dongwe Hotel, the Rock is iconic for its location. It literally sits on a rock which means you’re surrounded by water as you enjoy your meal. Take a boat if it is high tide, or wade through the water to get to your food.
But the luxury at the Dongwe Ocean View Hotel doesn’t come from the fact that it is a luxurious property or is award-winning. Its sheer luxury comes from its beautiful location that offers expansive views, the beach that is wonderful to walk on and laze on, the waters that are gloriously blue, the absolutely glorious and untouched nature that surrounds a person, and the greatest luxury of all – a chance to be up close and personal with nature.
There are many ways to do this – reef walking to explore the beautiful coral, paddling through the waters and taking in the sights, a dhow-trip in a traditional boat, wind surfing and kite surfing for that adrenaline rush.
Dongwe is close to all the other locations – Jozani forest, Stone Town are two that come to mind. Spend the entire day exploring the fascinating island and then head back to the hotel for some much-needed rest and recreation. The beach awaits, great moments await.
This is what makes Dongwe such a special hotel. A honeymoon here is a simple way to connect to the earth beneath our feet and to each other.
