The Breakers Grill is a great spot for lunch, where you can enjoy fresh fish and a beachfront barbecue under the shade of the palm trees, or you can order something light at the poolside bar. There’s also the Chai Room for afternoon tea, coffee and cake.
The elegantly decorated rooms with their authentic carvings, dark wood and ivory tones are identical in terms of décor and size except that the suites have a walk-in dressing room and larger bathroom.

The Zanzibar Collection believes in only employing local people wherever possible. They invest heavily in their skills training and family welfare. Most of the managers have worked their way up to their current position, where they have been supported by means of a rigorous programme of training.
They have installed a state-of-the-art sewage-treatment plant that transforms our wastewater into irrigation water. They plant only indigenous species, all of which are selected for their ability to absorb humidity during the day and release it into the roots at night. In this way they have achieved a 50% cut in water consumption. The hotels also adhere to a stringent policy of laundry/bathroom water-use minimization.
They are also committed to the eradication of single-use-plastic and use recyclable paper products wherever feasible. They also prefer to use glass bottles rather than plastic and provide water for re-usable containers in all their rooms.
Their staff includes a dedicated marine biologist who watches over the well-being of our delicate tidal ecosystem while offering educational workshops for the staff. They also promote reef safaris, environmentally caring dive programmes and water sports.
