Beach bliss and shady palms on the white sands of Zanzibar’s idyllic Matemwe Beach – includes breakfast, dinner, welcome drink, bottle of wine and more

  • Cozy and intimate, Sunshine Hotel Zanzibar is a little pocket of relaxation on Zanzibar’s dreamy east coast. The Tripadvisor Travelers' Choice awarded hotel is set right on the talcum powder-soft white sands of Matemwe Beach, so leisurely strolls along the shore or the best sunbathing spots are just a few steps away.

  • Facing the ocean is a refreshing swimming pool where you can sip a cocktail from the bar, and there’s a restaurant on site serving delicious meals with a menu that changes every day depending on what’s fresh and in season. Fancy a trip? The hotel can help you organize tours of Stone Town or the spice farms.

  • The hotel’s paradisiacal location gives privileged access to the dive sites of Mnemba, with a partnership with a local PADI dive operator in its sister hotel making planning day trips a breeze. Whether you’re a beginner or an Open Water diver, you’ll soon be spotting tropical fish and coral formations.
