Doubletree Hilton Zanzibar

...

... is located in the Nungwi area on the northern tip of Zanzibar Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of Tanzania.


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.


The majority of visitors stay here in this Nungwi area for 3 to 7 nights, often in combination with other parts of the island such as Jambiani, Bwejuu and Stonetown or the islands of Pemba, Mafia or Fanjove.

These coastal areas are most commonly combined with Tanzania safari options such as Serengeti safari, Ngorongoro safari, Ruaha safari and Selous safari, as well as Kilimanjaro treks, usually in trips of 10 to 21 nights.
