We had a very pleasant stay at the Ocean Paradise resort during our vacation on April, 2017. Our room was very spacious, beautiful and cleaned daily. Lots of fun activities planned by Eliza who is in charge of the animation team. I mostly enjoyed the water aerobics during noon time, the local bands performances during dinner and the Masai ethnic...

We stayed here, as a family with two small kids, and despite having been to Zanzibar many times it was our first "Resort" experience. We found this to be a great compromise between a large resort and a small hotel. Ocean Paradise is decorated in beautiful Zanzibari style, it is extremely well kept, with lush green lawns, and we found...

Really nice hotel, good large clean rooms and the staff are all smiling and friendly. Food at both the breakfast and dinners was plentiful and good with a varied selection with dinner having a different theme every evening. The pool is really nice to cool off in and apparently the largest in Zanzibar. The manager is always wandering around checking...

Spent one week here with my wife and we had an absolutely incredible time. The rooms were clean and spacious and the service was brilliant. We went for the all inclusive package which was definitely worth it because the lunch (which you get with all inclusive) was very good and the local drinks are very nice too. We also booked...

Could not get over the value of this place. Perhaps it was just that I booked in the lower season, or that the tourism had fallen on a bit of a dip. But this was easily the most bang for my buck that I can recall in a long time. Had a beautiful, huge, immaculate hut to myself. Pool area...

We stayed for seven nights at the resort and what a lovely experience! The staff took lots of trouble to make our stay worth every cent. Apart from exotic dinners next to the swimming pool and the serenity around us, I must commend Ocean Paradise on the extremely comfortable bed and aircon in the room. I don't know if it...

The rooms are comfortable, spacious and clean. Unfortunately, the mattress is extremely hard and prevents you from having a good night's rest. The AC works well and because of the thick walls the temperature in the room is kept cool even when the AC is not running. The resort does not use key cards. You have to carry around a...

We were here for about 4 nights and we loved our stay here. Every night during dinner time there was a different performing group. The food in the evening also features a different cuisine.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean, it is as the name suggests a little piece of paradise. From your arrival at Zanzibar Airport, the resort is a meandering 45 minute journey through un-spoilt scenery, passing typical African villages where the way of life has changed little for hundreds of years. At Ocean Paradise Resort Zanzibar, you will be greeted by a blaze of colour as you sweep down the imposing driveway, saluted by a Masai warrior as you pass through the entrance gate and be captivated as you arrive in reception and look out over the resort and the azure blue sea. Mature coconut palms swinging in the breeze, white sandy beach, beautiful landscaped gardens, traditional style round chalets with pitched makuti roof, a stunning waterfall feature and the largest swimming pool in Zanzibar are just some of the sights that await you. A big smile and the greeting of "Jambo" will be the first words you hear, as you begin to feel the warmth that the people of Zanzibar are famed for. ... more   less
