Tulia Zanzibar Unique Beach Resort
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Pongwe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 November 2016

I was lucky enough to stay at Tulia last weekend. What an amazing environment in which to unwind and be spoiled. Quite recently opened, this beach front Boutique Resort is immaculate. From the Landscaping to the Bed Linen, everything is perfectly done.

The silence is complete, just the lapping of the Indian Ocean waves & the rustling palm leaves, broke it when the wind picked up. Seeing the 'Super Moon' rising over the sparkling sea was an added bonus.

Service is friendly and efficient. The restaurant staff were especially charming and helpful. The food was consistently superb. My lunchtime Seafood Soup was historic, and the Red Snapper at dinner fresh and perfectly cooked.

Despite being on holiday I needed to keep in touch with the office and, as promised, the Wi-fi here was swift and available throughout the resort. A rarity, I discovered, in Zanzibar.

I'm already planning my next trip to Tulia and would like to thank Lukas and his Team for such a fantastic stay.

This property is new so don't let the ranking fool you. It is hands done the top property in Zanzibar!! The food is tastefully crafted, the property gorgeous, and the staff very attentive. There are a few things to look out for. Ocean villas 2-5 are the best rooms. Garden rooms don't have much privacy at all or a view. With that said, the common areas are outstanding and spacious. The other issue is you're a beach lover is that at high tide the beach is gone completely but there is a man made beach that stays 24/7. I stayed at Baraza resort for a few nights on the same trip prior to coming to Tulia. It's also a nice property but much bigger with many more children and although the property was enormous, the buffet meals with the children doesn't compare to Tulia. Go for the ALL inclusive package!! Worth it for all the perks.

As the name promises, a unique experience! The hotel is beautiful set right on the ocean with elegant cosy bungalows, the pool area is very relaxing and scenic, and the landscaping is perfectly manicured with a medley of local plants. Sometimes hotel photos online look better than reality, however, Tulia does not disappoint! No lens could do Tulia's charming beauty justice! Breathtaking!

The staff from mangement, waiters, housekeeping, gardeners and all are very pleasant, warm and friendly. Everyone greeted us "Jambo" as we walked by and everyone had a "Hakuna Matata" attitude to anything we requested. Our waiters, Husain, Kicele, Emmanuel and Enoch were forever cheerful and a delight to be around. Martin the F&B and Guest Relations Manager is a committed young man, very professional and obviously cares a lot about his work, he sincerely looked out for our comfort and no request was beneath him. We had a picnic by the sea as part of our package and I was surprised to find out that he went to supervise its arrangement himself.

The food and fine dinning experience was a real treat. The daily menus are very well thought through and the chef is very creative and artistic. The "By The Sea Dinner Night" with grilled lobster and barbecued/caramelized pineapple with mulberry sauce were my absolute favorite. The chef also creatively catered for vegetarian full menu requests.

Without a doubt, we would happily return!
