I stayed at the Ocean Paradise Resort in March 2015. It lived up to my expectations great location, great food and most importantly fantastic customer service. I would like to congratulate the management team in delivering a customer focused service. The staff are friendly and attentive and make you feel valued. I shall be returning in October 2015, can't wait.

Our stay was simply superb; the staff was very friendly and resourceful with an all-inclusive service from the doctor to the day’s event facilitators, this made our stay quite comfortable. I particularly liked the varieties on offer every evening. It’s fairly a distance from town if you fancy a quiet retreat. Be very particular when choosing an ocean guide for...

The welcome on arrival was very good, with cool towels and fresh-pressed fruit juice. Even the standard room I had was very good: a round makuti-roofed building with a large verandah and bathroom and a large, well-equipped bedroom. The large grounds are well tended with lots of lovely tropical flowers. The swimming pool is very large and very clean and...

Having visited a number of times, it's so nice to return to a real 'home coming' welcome. Whilst much of the product offering is first rate, it's the effort and friendliness from the staff that is really exceptional.

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
