Sea Cliff Zanzibar


With a modest 120 rooms the Sea Cliff is perfect for those that want to get involved with the social aspect of a holiday – it is large enough to have a great atmosphere but small enough to offer the excellent personal service generally reserved for much smaller, boutique properties.

Of the 120 rooms all offer air-conditioning and ceiling fans, LCD television with international satellite channels, hair dryer, internet, telephone, minibar, tea & coffee facilities, ipod docking station and a private balcony.

There are three room categories at the Sea Cliff:
80 are Superior and offer spectacular panoramic sea views.
24 Garden Rooms with the same amenities as the superior rooms, but without a sea view.
16 Junior Suites with spectacular sea views and a luxurious free standing bath.

One particularly good facility at the Hotel Sea Cliff is the children’s club. The hotel offers a fully secure service with trained child minders which is a welcome addition for those parents wanting a few hours alone. The kids club offers a well thought out schedule of activities that changes regularly. The club has several Playstations (no Dad’s allowed!) and an outside play area for the more energetic children.

The hotel has three choices of restaurant :

The Mangapwani restaurant offering a local and international buffet.
The Terrace restaurant offers a more casual dining experience and overlooks the Indian ocean.
The Kobe restaurant offers light lunch options around the pool.

There are 3 bars across the resort :

The sophisticated Zanzi-Bar overlooks the ocean and is perfect for a stylish sundowner cocktail or a vintage whiskey.
The Kobe poolside bar and the jetty bar are more laid back and offer a wide selection of beers, wines, spirits and cocktails.

Our opinion

The Hotel Sea Cliff is well equipped with lots of facilities and enjoys many beautiful sunsets. This is not a beach destination however, as the beach is quite a distance to the North and is exposed to the intense heat of the African sun. The hotel is ideal for families and business clients and serves as a good base from which to explore the rest of the island. For honeymoon couples looking for a similar standard of hotel located on a beautiful white coral sand beach, Baraza Resort and Spa is higher in price, but offers all inclusive luxury in a superior location.
