We have stayed at many beach resorts in different countries around the world and none of them would top Tulia. It is just a fantastic small resort and everyone there seems to go out of their way to make you feel welcome and make your time there enjoyable. As we're from the United States we just wish it was closer but if we have the opportunity to visit that part of the world again we will definitely try and stay a few days at Tulia Zanzibar.

The food was excellent, compliments to the head Chef! I was celebrating my 40th birthday and this property with the beautiful white beach and clear ocean blue water was amazing! The hotel staff were friendly and thought of everything! And the best part of the trip was meeting, Hassan, an excursion tour manager on the beach 255-772-866-086! His services were excellent! He took incredible care of us from beginning to end. We did three tours, Safari Blue, Quads (ATV's) and Stone town/Prison Island. He and his partner were extremely professional, drove us everywhere and stuck by our sides to answer any questions we had. And for my birthday he arranged for a traditional band to play music, sing and dance, and they even brought me a cake. This was the best trip ever. If you you think about doing a tour, do it with Hassan and his team! They will take GREAT care of you!

The most incredible stay that I’ve ever had! Their attention to guests, service, upkeep… it’s exclusive and remote and beautiful!! The food, drinks and entertainment was wonderful! Lots of included activities like sailing, paddle boarding, spa etc. we went for our honeymoon and they set up a romantic private dinner for us! Would highly recommend staying and hope to go back again!

8/10 Very good

A pristine property with a magnificent beach the only thing I would say is that the kitchen leave some thing to be improved on breakfast and lunch is excellent but dinner is always medium marginal at the cost per night it’s surprising that you wouldn’t have a little larger menu to choose from

The best!
This is quite possibly the best hotel I have ever been to (and I’ve traveled a decent amount)! I was speechless! The staff and managers were just incredible! The rooms were lovely, the whole atmosphere was amazing, and everything was fresh and cozy. I cannot recommend this hotel enough!

Paradise in Zanzibar
Overall beyond happy that I stayed in this beautiful private hotel. The staff were wonderful and I felt like I was part of the family. Food was excellent and it’s all organic and freshly picked from their own farm. My room was awesome. The surroundings were beautiful. It’s like paradise. It was worth splurging and hopefully I get to come back again. I love Tulia!
