"We also loved this place (very different after safari though). We spoke to the manager about the sustainability initiatives (all built with locally sourced materials, soaps made with coconut oil, water refilling). Got a lovely fruit platter welcome and wedding congratulations card, and our towels turned into swans on the bed when we arrived. The huts are wonderful, we had a sea front one, which is divine, having view of the sea and a palm tree from your bedroom, and our own little terrace area to watch the sun set into the sea. They also kindly provided sparkling wine to our hut, to enjoy at sunset. We went on a snorkelling trip, which was fab. The coral reef here is in better condition than the Great Barrier Reef, so you should see plenty of colour and diversity still, even though even here climate change is having its effects (some of the corals phosphorolising or dying). There is even some coral and colour fish just behind the lodge, but the diversity is definitely better if you go out with the boat - it's worth it. We didn't go on any of the other trips they run, but they offer an extensive menu (dolphin, dhow boat, Stone Town, local village, spice tour), so anything you may have come to Zanzibar for, the lodge should be able to arrange for you. There is also some wildlife within the grounds of the lodge. Syke's monkeys are clever, cheeky sods which will (apparently) raids huts for the tasty coconut oil-based soaps (so you are advised to lock this away) or any food that you put on the table at the poolside. Very cute are the sengi, which we loved seeing snuffling in the undergrowth. Also plenty of bat activity. They do good cocktails, a different special every night. And the food is amazing. There is quite a bit of choice, and especially absolutely spoilt for sea food, fresh daily locally. A great place to relax after a thrilling but tiring safari. "
