Arriving at Sea Cliff Resort & Spa you know you have come across a very special place. The 4 km drive through a coconut plantation, is a reminder of the Zanzibar of old. Peace and tranquility and no busy roads. Space, palm trees and the incredible blue of the ocean graces you as you approach the property courtyard filled with tropical flowers.
With our traditional makuti roofs and Arabic towers glowing with their brass lights, this is an hotel built with our location in mind. It is a unique combination of modern mixed with the original exotic architecture of historical Zanzibar.
The decorative natural color scheme of creams and golds are complimented by antique furniture that has been specially sourced to showcase the culture, history and the influences that give Zanzibar its uniqueness.
Sea Cliff Resort & Spa is situated on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean and offers panoramic views from the lounges, restaurant, bars and even the recreation area. You can enjoy breakfast overlooking the ocean or dinner under the stars and sundowners on the jetty or even from the balcony of your room.
