“Tropical African Paradise”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

When we were looking for a holiday we were quite specific about what we wanted - Complete rest and relaxation at an intimate and personal resort located on a quiet and non-commercialized white sandy beach. This is exactly what we got! Next Paradise is an extremely intimate and personalized owner-run boutique hotel on a beautiful stretch of white sandy beach. It is immaculate and stylish with a cosy atmosphere, and friendly staff who really go out of their way to please. Stuart (owner) was incredibly helpful when we were booking and went out of his way to ensure that all of our expectations and requirements were met. On arrival we were met by the bubbly Daniella who is extremely efficient, accommodating and friendly. She made sure we were well taken care of throughout our stay.

The great thing about being at such an intimate resort was that we could put in personal food requests with the chef, who was also very accommodating. We personally did not go for the all-inclusive package as we did not want to be restricted with food - however there are no restaurant options in the area - unless you want to try the restaurants at other nearby hotels, which we did. The main clientele appeared to be Italian/Slovenian/European, we are South Africans, and although all of the guests seemed to really enjoy the food, it was not really to our taste as we found it quite bland. However, I do suspect that this was more of a cultural thing, as when we gave the chef instructions on what we wanted, they were very willing and happy to accommodate. Dinners are a great time to mingle and meet the other guests as well as enjoy some local entertainment - although we actually preferred to have dinner on our terrace most evenings.

If you are looking for PURE relaxation then Next Paradise is the place to go. For those who are interested in some adventure and exploring they have a range of personalized tours that you can choose from to break away from all the relaxation :-)

We were slightly sceptical on how good this place would be. In this case... we must say that our experience was way above our expectations... We felt welcomed on arrival, in a way that you feel like you are at home. Stuart, Marina and the whole Next Paradise family make this experience unique.

We got a fantastic room with a nice balcony overlooking the sea, the beach is one of the best we have ever been to because the buildings/huts are set back at a reasonable distance that give you a comfortable feeling that the coast has been kept as natural as possible. You can enjoy long walks, go sailing, fishing, diving and a large etc... you find the perfect balance between a fantastic resort but with the ability of mingling with local people if you want.

We enjoyed the fact that the dinner menu was set for us, still having the chance to change if we didn’t fancy what was on the list, 4 courses each of them with a personal touch, like going to a good friends house every evening without knowing what you going to be served...
The swimming pool is beautifully maintained, and very close to the beach, so whether you are swimming in the sea or sun-bathing there is a fantastic opportunity to cool down in the swimming pool.

If you are hesitating where to stay in Zanzibar.... don’t do it. This is the place to be, you won’t be disappointed.

What to say about this excellent accommodation surrounded with beautiful environment?

Me and my family we spent one of our most quality and relaxing vacation after a long time. Resort is a peaceful environment with all needed luxuries. Rooms are spacious and very nice furnished. We used one of the best double room (Double Room Family Suite) which is situated almost in front of the ocean. Between room and ocean is beautiful beach with white sand on the other side a kidney shape pool is in the rich of hand. Room has a spacious wooden terrace which is intimate enough to rest peacefully in the shade when the sun is to hot to handle.

Rooms are clean, local stuff working on a property is friendly and professional.

Resort is self-sufficient so you can get almost everything what you imagine. Food is excellent. We did take the half board. Breakfast is excellent start of the day when you consume fresh juices, home baked croissants, pancakes, bread, eggs made by your choice and variety of fruits. Diners are one of main events in resort they are truly excellent so on a platter you can find daily fresh fishes, crabs, lobsters and other sea specialities. If you are more meat eater (as my wife is) don’t hesitate to talk with friendly site to order non-seafood meals (also vegetarians can easily survive ad least one week with variety of foods).

Friendly staff if very helpful to arrange activities outside of resort (spice tour, snorkeling, scuba diving, kiting ...). Marina, Daniela and Stuart are always prepared to assist you.

On the end if you want to have party (and other night activities) this resort or also Zanzibar is not the right choice for you. You need to find another destination.

If you want to experience: sun, beautiful beaches, palms, white sand, quiet and unspoiled environment, warm sea, spices, excellent food and on the end smiley and friendly locals then don’t hesitate tho visit Zanzibar and Next Paradise Boutique resort.

This hotel is a small paradise on earth, i spent the most wonderfull time with my son and his family there! We had a very nice furnished double room with a magnificent sea view and outside it was the whitest sand i have ever seen or imagine,the room was placed directly at the beach front!! Infront of our room was also a very nice pool area with the big swimming pool.
I have to admit that what i like the most was the food, every morning we could have fresh bread and homemade cake and fresh juices of so many different kind of fruit, everything was so tasty and delicious! For the dinner we had 4 courses every day, fresh fish, prawns and we also had lobster, it was my favourite! All the staff was very professional and very kind, they organized everything for us and they gave us all the important information. I wish i could return to this amazing Paradise on earth!!!! If you choose this hotel you will never regret and you are going to dream about Next Paradise for a long time!

Room Tip: Double room is fantastic!

If i had to say just one word to describe this hotel, it will be extraordinary.
First and most important is that hotel is very clean, stylish and luxury. Rooms are big, comfortable, with very nice terrace and view. My room had a ocean view, which was one of the best part. Bathrooms are also very clean. You have staff which is coming every day to clean your room and bathroom, to replenish everything that you need.
Pool is big, very good for swimming and as well is you just want to chill inside and have some cocktails. Food in hotel is amazing. Everything from starter till desert is just wonderful and delicious. Chef has to get award for things that he makes.
Beach is big, clean, not crowded with people. You can have your own peace. Relax, enjoy sun and swimming, read a book or just walk or ride a bike on the beach.
One of the things which is very important to me, is staff. If the staff which is working in hotel is not nice, no matter how nice hotel look and would not come again. Here, in this hotel staff is just amazing, very helpful, nice, pleasant. For any information that you need you can ask them and they will be more that happy to help you. I had my birthday there, and i don't have words to describe what they did for me. They really made my day special, they decorated a special chair for me, arrange a music through all the night, made me a birthday cake with some candles on top. . . They really wowed me on every way that was possible to do that. I didn't expect anything of that and they put a lot of effort to make something special for me.
If you want to have nice holiday and treat yourself i would definitely recommend you to come to this place, i can promise you that you will be delighted with hotel, place and service of staff and that you will wanted to come again.. I'm planing to come back very soon and enjoy in my small oasis of peace.
