Karafuu hotel beach resort Zanzibar

Karafuu Hotel Beach Resort is a well-established beach resort that opened in 1995 and is named after the Swahili word for cloves, karafuu, which grow in abundance on Zanzibar Island. Karafuu is ideally located on a blissful stretch of palm-fringed beach with white sand and dazzling blue water – just what you’re after.
The spacious, cool reception area under makuti (palm thatch) is impressive, especially when you’re visiting Karafuu Hotel Beach Resort for the first time. You instantly know you’re in a top-notch hotel. There is an enormous pool around which you’ll find guests soaking up the sun.
Karafuu Hotel Beach Resort 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.
