Doubletree Hilton Zanzibar
is located in the Nungwi
area on the northern tip of Zanzibar Island
off the Indian Ocean Coast
Following signs through the shanties of Nungwi village it seems most bizarre that there should be a Hilton up ahead. But there is.
This straight down the line hotel has around 80 standard rooms in two large three-storey blocks, plus a further 20 slightly higher specification rooms in smaller blocks above the beach.
To one side lies a large two storey building containing the main restaurant and bar, whilst the central pool has a sunken bar, with a spa and games room adjacent.
Doubletree Hilton Zanzibar is a reasonably solid and reliable place, as one might expect, but one has to wonder whether a brand of this stature would not have been better advised finding a more remote location. Also it does seem relatively pricey ... suppose the brand name adds a premium.
