This beautiful island is an amazing choice for anyone who wishes to spend their holiday on white beaches by turquoise clear waters surrounded by palm trees. The atmosphere there is very relaxed and peaceful. To enhance this vibe we have chosen to stay in the newly opened Baladin beach hotel and we wish to share this experience with you.
The hotel is located in Michamvi-Pingwe on the east coast of the island. It is about a 1-hour drive from the airport and Stone Town, but it is only 5 mins walk away from the famous restaurant the Rock, where almost every tourist go for one dinner. The surrounding is very natural and remote, what makes it feel more special.
Since we arrived we were so impressed with the design of the whole hotel. The restaurant roof structures build from local palm trees looks amazing. The resort has 8 spacious two-storey bungalows with a traditional makuti palmed roof. It also has outdoor bathroom, which brings you even closer to the nature! It was very cool to take shower and watch palm trees and listen to the ocean waves.
All the bangaloves are very private and we cannot imagine a better place to stay in Zanzibar. It takes the holiday to a completely different level. What makes it special is that you feel bonded to the area.
Of course, there is a nice swimming pool with the great view for the ocean. It is a boutique hotel, so it is never too busy!
If you imagine yourself eating breakfast with the stunning view of the ocean, with white sand beach and sun, this exactly what we experience in Baladin. On top of that, you have some cool eating areas such as the table with swing chairs or the wooden boat grounded on the beach.
Food was so delicious, fresh exotic juices were spot on. We also had lunches and dinners there, and the lobster was beyond our expectation. I think the photos will explain more!
We loved staying in the Baladin hotel and we don’t know if there are enough words to describe how relaxing and beautiful our honeymoon was. Just thinking about our experience makes us want to book flights and go back to Zanzibar!
