Spice Island Hotel and Resort is located directly at the beach.
Guests are welcome to relax on the private beach inside the hotel or stroll along the coastline of Jambiani. The east coast of Zanzibar is blessed by regular high and low tides, which open up the beautiful undersea world for on foot exploration. Follow the “seaweed women” who are working in their fields during low tide or try to catch some octopus (“Pweza”) and calamari with the kids around who will be happy to practice their English. 
Make use of our 100 m long Jetty pier, which allows you to observe the Kite Surfers in the distance or wave to a passing local Ngalawa boat.

Spice Island Hotel and Resort is named after the rich and vast history of Zanzibar’s spices. Thus our botanical garden, which boasts over 3000 plants and trees is scattered with a variety of spice plants for you to discover!
