Sultan Sands is a uniquely constructed magical Africa resort, with a choice of 76 rooms (56 Pwani Rooms and 20 Bahari Rooms) built in single story African style rondavels. It nestles on the beachfront of a 25 acre stretch of subtly landscaped gardens decked with over 1000 palm trees.
The furnishings are tasteful traditional Zanzibar furniture - including either one large bed or two queen size beds with mosquito nets, separate dressing room, en suite bathroom with a shower and a spacious verandah. A touch of modernity is added by the split-level air conditioners, ceiling fans, satellite TV's, mini-bars, hair dryers, safes and telephones.
The Sultan Sands Island Resort is situated next to its sister resort, the Bluebay Beach Resort and Spa, on the beachfront of the wide, sparkling beaches of Kiwengwa in the east coast of Zanzibar. The Zanzibar Island lies 35 KM off the eastern coast of Africa and is one of the two main islands of an autonomous state within the larger republic of Tanzania.
Dining - MWAMBAO Restaurant is the main dining facility for the Resort where Breakfast and dinner are taken. MAWIMBI Bar is the main drinks outlet at the resort. It is fabulous place for guests to sip cold drinks as they look out to the swimming pool, the beach and the ocean beyond. KIVULI Bar and Restaurant is located right on the Beach and provides the invaluable toes-in-the-sand mid day culinary delight for our guests! CASABLANCA Lounge is the only long night facility for both the Sultan Sands guests as well as those of the Bluebay Beach Resort and Spa.
Oasis and Spa - Being at the very edge of a beautiful, wide tropical beach, we give high premium to keeping our guests in harmony with the natural environment of a tropical island. Our Spa, known simply as the Oasis, reflects that spirit – complete with a wooden deck, a thatch roof built with palm trees growing up through it and the splashing water amid an abundance of beautiful exotic plants. The Oasis is also known for the professional massages that come with the natural setting – with airy sea view overlooking the beach and the turquoise ocean beyond.
For a really memorable experience, ask your therapists to blend and mix the local spices and fruits right in front of you. All these natural freshly prepared treatments are famous for their virtues for the body and aromas to relax the mind.
