Salt-white beaches, impossibly blue skies and gin-clear waters combine to make Zanzibar holidays the ultimate castaway paradise. Located in the Indian Ocean 50 miles off the coast of Tanzania and inhabited for centuries by seemingly every nation under the sun from Egyptians and Indians to Persians and Omanis, Zanzibar is a melting pot of cultures. To get a feel for the rich tapestry of influences, take the time to stroll through the maze of the medina (old town) in Stone Town and admire the crumbling facades of the old Arab palaces and the heavy Indian studded copper doors. Visit Beit al Ajaib (House
of Wonders) and learn about the history and culture of Zanzibar and the Swahili Coast. Next, head to the east coast where you’ll find the most stunning island beaches, perfect for a slow, sleepy afternoon on the powdery sand watching dhows drift by. The more actively inclined can also enjoy fishing, kayaking, kitesurfing, snorkelling and diving on the well-preserved reefs around the Zanzibar Archipelago and other Spice Islands. Combine your Zanzibar holiday with a safari in Tanzania to experience a perfect balance of relaxation and adventure in this unforgettable corner of the world.

I wanted to take the time to say a HUGE thank you for organising our dream honeymoon right down to the smallest details. We had an amazing time across all three locations and loved the letters you had handwritten and sent to our accommodations to welcome us in each of them, we also received a welcome home card which was a lovely touch. Our holiday was amazing and the Rayavadee was a particular highlight on the trip. We've never been anywhere quite as brilliant. We filled our days on the beach, by the pool, drinking cocktails, eating amazing food and visiting the beauties of Pang Nam Bay and the Phi Phi Islands. We also had a cooking class which was amazing as well, we're going to attempt a new Thai recipe every week. Once again, thank you so much for everything, we'll be sure to recommend you to anyone planning a holiday in the future. Fantastic service and job well done.
