We spent 5 nights during our honeymoon at Tulia and our experience couldn't have been better. Starting from the location of the hotel, which is in one of the most beautiful beaches of the island, followed by the professional and friendly service and the amazing gastronomy...All that makes this hotel a perfect place to relax and enjoy. Moreover, there are a few complementary services included on the price that were amazing: private yoga lessons, paddle board-kayak, 1h massage,... we truly enjoyed that as well! My only comment is that if you want to travel around the island the hotel is at 1h distance from almost all places: Stone Town, Paje, Kendwa...which implies taking a taxi every time that cost 100usd/day. Apart from that, congrats to the Tulia team!

My wife and I stayed at Tulia for part of our honeymoon. I have rarely, if ever, encountered such wonderful staff - everyone at the property from the managers to the bartenders and groundskeepers were genuinely kind, friendly, accommodating, and eager to ensure we were having as good of a stay as possible. The property itself is beautiful, well maintained, and has very good food. Really though, the staff is what separated this hotel from others for us and provided us a special and memorable experience.

A holiday in ZNZ might be fantastic also in a beach tent but to stay in one of the most beautiful properties on the island surely makes it unique and unforgettable. We just come back from a 4 nights stay at Tulia and from the early contacts with Petra and her colleague at the booking desk to the last bye to the all staff after an after lunch late check-out, the all experience was one of the best ever had in the south seas. It was my birthday and our wedding anniversary and I can't really say how impressed we were with all those special little things that made us really felling loved and extremely well looked after since morning to night. Beyond this, the property is gorgeous, perhaps the best exotic garden in Zanzibar, with only a bunch of luxury villas and a marvelous pool facing the ocean on top of the most beautiful white talco beach close to Pongwe. At dinner, every night there was a show: Masai dance, live-cooking, live music from a local band, BBQ in the garden, etc... Part of the all inclusive package you get top notch spirits and premium wines and, thanks to chef Mzima, the best food ever, from breakfast to dinner. A separate pool with slides gave as plenty of fun while we also used their paddle boards and kayaks. We didn't have time to use bikes nor to attend their daily yoga classes (which are unlimited as part of the package) but we enjoyed indeed a 1 hour long massage that was really professional (brava Mary and colleague) and daily cruises by the reef with their own dhow boat. In the property there is a beautiful gift shop as well and you could also organize a day trip to Serengeti with a private plane. Overall, really a 6 stars experience from people you clearly see are keen to impress their clients after the hard work they made in making that real. Last thing worth noting, a very efficient help in setting the PCR tests directly in your room (2 minutes job). Thank you to all of you once again hoping to see you again in the near future. BRAVI !!!

After much research and debate, we selected Tulia as one of the destinations for our honeymoon in September 2021 and could not have been happier with our decision. Right from the first moment, everything about our stay there was first class. The hotel was responsive to our questions and organised an airport transfer who was waiting for us when we landed. The hotel grounds are beautiful, and our villa (we went for one of the waterfront options directly facing the sea) was breathtaking. It is a perfect destination for a romantic couple's trip, especially if you are travelling for a special occasion. The space is huge, and the private terrace area facing the ocean is spectacular. What really sets Tulia apart in my view (and I saw this referenced in other reviews) was the staff. They have a real army of attentive, high energy and high positivity people in the family who just make you feel so welcome and well looked after. The meals were excellent (our choice was all-inclusive and this is a real AI deal - only the cigars by the bar cost extra if you want one!) The dinner and lunch menus change on a daily basis and there's enough variety with breakfast to keep you interested. The hotel also does a great job of providing entertainment in the evenings during dinner service. They have a modern and well equipped gym on site and offer various excursion options at an extra cost if you so wish. We just loved our time here and it was over far too quickly. A big thank you to the entire team for making our honeymoon experience so incredible.
