We stayed 6 days at Tulia. When we arrived after having had wonderful stays at Zuri and The Residence at significantly lower price for high quality. The critical issues are surrounding the quality of the rooms. We stayed at a beachfront villa. I’ll-configured, dark, poor materials; small shower, moldy toilet with an old bidet too low use; sinks without a place to put toiletries/soap; old towels; a hostel-style closet; faulty TV; most importantly an uncomfortable, cheap non-breathable foam mattress bed. On the positive sides: they have a impeccably groomed garden, with vegetable, spices and farm chicken/ducks; a very capable massage team; super friendly and attentive team. and an excellent chef in Mgeni.
Gorgeous grounds, immaculate rooms, phenomenal food all topped with the most amazing service from the greatest staff (props to Radka!!) You can't go wrong with this property. It may not be for everyone, however: This place is mainly for relaxation (and eating!!). Location is pretty remote so not much to do off property. They have a small fitness center, kayaks, paddleboards and bicycles for use. Very nice spa. Understand the beach situation. The tides are crazy. They are way out where you can walk hundreds of feet to get to water or in crashing against the support wall. Not a lot in between. They have a raised area with sand and one with grass to use as "beach" to sun/rest but if you are looking for traditional beach you may be disappointed.
We came to this hotel after going on a safari in Kenya to relax, and this resort met our expectations. We arrived very late on the first night and the hotel had arranged some food in our rooms which was very unexpected and thoughtful. All the staff are amazing, very friendly and supportive. The attention to detail for guest experience - such as beach’s hats and a beach bag, insect repellent among other things - was a very lovely touch. The only suggestions we would give for improvement are for more privacy around the shower area in the rooms (since it’s not only couples that would be sharing), a vegetarian option to be available on the menu, although the chef did prepare a vegetarian meal for us on request. Another suggestion is the availability of local snacks and dishes. Overall it was a great experience and we had a lovely time!…
We stayed in a beach front villa for 6 nights after coming from Safari in the Serengeti and the room was exceptional. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we felt fully relaxed and looked after. An excellent place for anyone looking for a luxury resort for their honeymoon.
We stayed at the ocean front villa for 5nts after the safari and we are so happy we choose the Tulia hotel. The atmosphere is really enjoyable as the hotel has only 14 villas. The villa was clean and spacious and offered a private elevated small beach with an amazing view to the ocean. The staff was really friendly and professional and the guys at the bar always made incredible mocktails/cocktails depending on various taste. We also really enjoyed a la carte menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, much better than the usual buffet. Last but not least Petra and Rakta were always available for any help and for a small chat after dinner. Thank you so much to all the staff for making memorable our honeymoon, including the surprise dinner on our last day! Cecilia & Rune
My wife and I were spent the last few days in Tulia and really had a great time. This place is incredible and the hotel stuff made us feel like a family. The food was amazing, we felt like we ate in a gourmet restaurant all day long! Most ingredients camed from the hotel's organic farm so everything was super fresh. We took the front beach room and it was well equipped, super clean with large balcony equipped with few sofas and hammock. Also, the hotel offers an incredible complimentary massage for each guest and free private yoga lessons. We travelled a lot and we can definitely say that this hotel was the best luxury hotel so far, we had a great experience! Thank you so much Tulia!
The best hotel in Zanzibar, I recommend to everyone. Great perfect service, smiling and nice staff, amazing gastronomy. The hotel is in a beautiful place, where is the beautiful beach also after outflow.
I’ve never written a review before actually staying at a property but feel compelled to do so due to the absolutely excellent service and communication we have already received from Petra and the Tulia team. Nothing has been too much trouble and responses come back so quickly. I’m sure I will run out of superlatives when I get to write the review once we have stayed! We can’t wait to stay at Tulia in August!
One thing about a hotel is to have great location with comfortable environment I fell I love with the environment of Tulia Zanzibar😍.Another best thing I was very interested is the Car of the Last Sultan in Zanzibar which the do rent to guest and contribute the money to the orphanage center. friendly staffs and Best option for family and couple vacations.
My best friend and me spent an amazing time at this beautiful hotel. The whole staff spreads a positive vibe and creates a unique atmosphere. They make you feel that this place is your second home. We reveived a personal letter when we arrived and left, which is a very unique gesture. The villas are very cosy and the whole place feels very idyllic. The food is very delicious and each night there’s a show that is very entertaining and engages you with the local culture. I highly recommend to stay here and indulge in this unique atmosphere fueled by people with smiles and generous attitudes.
