Echo Beach is Located just south of the much larger Breezes Resort, this small and upmarket hotel offers wonderful beachfront location in a peaceful and less crowded setting. The English owners, Sue and Andrew, offer excellent personal service, and the food and facilities are of a very good standard.
9 large private villas offer spacious and stylish accommodation combining unpretentious African architecture with state of the art technology, interior design, fixtures and fittings. Each Villa also features a large private veranda measuring in excess of 20 square metres.
They are stylishly furnished with day beds so guests can languish away the hours, taking in the stupendous views. There are also dining tables and chairs for romantic alfresco dining.
All Villas also have stunning bathrooms with Italian tiles and Samuel Heath showers and taps for the ultimate wet room experience. Impeccable design and technology are combined with quirky individual touches, such as bespoke towel rail ladders made from local coconut wood.
Imagine basking in the sun by the ultimate infinity pool overlooking clear white sands and crystal blue sea. Why not lounge in the Jacuzzi before enjoying a dip to cool off?
With a refreshing breeze blowing in from the sea, guests can unwind and relax with a decadent cocktail in the stylish bar area, where designer fabrics are teamed with Zanzibar carved furnishings.
Dining in the beach-side restaurant, decorated with Vanessa Arbothnott fabric, in the white and turquoise of the seashore is a highly pleasurable experience, with discreet and efficient service.
Supervised by Andrew, with his French training, the kitchen makes the most of local fresh ingredients to offer an eclectic menu.
For those who want to get the true taste of Zanzibar there is a wealth of local dishes on the menu, not to mention some carefully selected International favourites.
The ultimate in fresh fare, produce is purchased daily, including lobster, crab, mussels and squid straight from local fisherman who come to the beach.
This is another very stylish new hotel in a great location for relaxing on the beach and soaking up the peaceful and calming atmosphere.
Also boasts good facilities if you fancy kite surfing or other watersports. The food is particularly good here, and as it is a small resort, you are guaranteed the personal touch.
