Reef & Beach Resort

Relaxing & Swimming, you can count on Reef and Beach Resort!

Reef & Beach Resort has three fantastic pools, the first pool is located right next to the Indian Ocean, the second pool is one of a kind in Zanzibar. It is located in a tropical mangrove and is 1200 square meters big!

Our final pool will accommodate your little ones as the children's pool is great for a refreshing splash.

Jetty Bar On The Indian Ocean

This magical place is ideal to spend your day sipping on cocktails, sunbathing or watching the sunset.

During the evening the atmosphere is lifted with many activities to do and watch. The Jetty bar will be one of your favourite places in the resort.

Beaches

Zanzibar has the most magnificent beaches all along its coast, with the most turquoise water you’ll ever see and the most dramatic changes in the tide.

Around the resort you have natural white sand beaches and swimming from the Jetty is wonderful and during low tide you can make endless beach walks.

Beach & tides

Enjoy the beach & tides in Zanzibar
Coral reefs protect the east coast of Zanzibar and create a long lagoon with 50 shades of turquoise. The white-sand beaches are broad and flat. The moon's pull creates tidal differences of up to 4 metres twice a day, constantly changing stunning ocean views, high tides ideal for swimming, while at low tide the shallow waters beg to be explored! This gives stunning views!

Swimming In The Ocean During High Tide
High tides are perfect for swimming, snorkelling and you can do it right off of our Jetty bar!

Walking On The Beach During Low Tide
Low tides are perfect for walking around the Resort's surroundings and discovering what Zanzibar has for you. You'll also be able to see the locals searching for their beloved seafood.

Beach seasons
The beaches around the resort are pearly white and crystal clean. During windy seasons we receive seaweed that washes up onto our beaches but don't worry, because it gets cleaned up by our amazing beach cleaners! You will be able to enjoy the beach in front of the hotel as it is very private and during low tide you can walk out to all the secret lagoon pools and coral reef!

See here a example from the Rock Restaurant and the surrounding Indian ocean.

Beach Club

In the resort you will find the Mango Beach-Club.

Here you can experience locally made cocktails, the mouth watering pizza’s freshly made in our wood oven, or try the lobster from the barbeque. It is a fantastic place to spend your day where the beach is only a few steps away.

Restaurants

Good food is the key to a memorable holiday, luckily our chefs are cooking fresh meals daily to cater for all. Our chefs also specialize in romantic lobster dinners served on the beach!

Zanzibar is known for its bold and flavorful spices, now it's your turn to try them in Reef & Beach Resort.

An incredible holiday!

Well first off, I would like to say that if you are thinking of going on holiday to Zanzibar and are worried about Covid-19... please don’t be. From the minute I arrived at the airport it was a breath of fresh air that everything and everyone was so normal. There are very few cases in Tanzania, and I felt very safe. As I had booked through the hotel directly, they had arranged a free transfer for me. I was promptly picked up and taken to the Reef and Beach Resort.

Unforgettable Experience

The resort had just re-opened, and we had the hotel, with all its facilities, nearly for ourselves (the pool, the
Jetty). We also were upgraded to the Villa. Our 2 teenage children enjoyed the game room and the chill room
(with the pool table); they also loved kayaking. And what a beautiful ocean front, with turquoise blue water!
And last but not least, the wonderful managers and staff made our stay an unforgettable experience

Wonderful time at hotel with the most friendly team

My wife and I loved our visit to the Reef & Beach Resort in Jambiani. Food is good, fresh with a decent choice of European Asian and African influences. We enjoyed African night and the local bread cooked upside down! Lots of wildlife to see in the hotel from hermit crabs to bush babies and lots in between. All the staff are lovely. You quickly pick up a smattering of Swahili and the Animation Team who organised the entertainment were very enthusiastic and helpful. Cleaners, waiting staff... they made a good stay great. The rooms are comfortable with fans ac and mosquito nets- remember it is a 3* resort and as such compares well internationally. The hotel has an international clientele on a variety of packages including all inclusive. There is free wifi throughout the hotel, but the signal was not consistent everywhere. There are improvement plans for the 2020 offseason so as the song says "things can only get better." With two pools, three bars and a view of the Indian Ocean, we plan to come back and would recommend you give it a go too.

Little piece of paradise!

I would describe this resort at present as small and boutique with lovely views, amazing staff and great atmosphere here. Food is beautifully cooked, always a variety to choose from and live stations. Staff go over and above to make sure you have everything you need. I had a room overlooking the pool and sea which had everything I needed. Booked 3 trips through the hotel and were very well organised. Had massages at the spa which were amazing, staff are so professional. Evening entertainment was varied and great. Loved the way all nationalities interact here too. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday, would highly recommend

Honeymoon in Heaven!

We chose the Reef & Beach hotel for our honeymoon and we were definitely not disappointed. We had read many positive reviews before booking, although had some concerns due to some comments about the food being poor. My husband is a fussy eater so we weren't quite sure what to expect. We need not have worried! If people keep in mind that this is a 3* hotel (providing a 5* service in my opinion), you have to appreciate how well they do with the food they provide. Compared to much bigger (and far more expensive) hotels we have stayed in before, of course the choices and selection available isn't as extensive but we never once went to breakfast, lunch or dinner without easily finding good quality food to eat. For anyone considering not booking this hotel based on the food reviews, please think again. I'm sure you will not be disappointed.
