Karafuu Hotel Beach Resort is located on the unspoiled south east coast of Zanzibar, right on the beach, around an hours drive from Zanzibar International Airport is where you will find Karafuu Hotel Beach Resort which translated into Swahili means ‘cloves’ one of the rare essences that made Zanzibar Resort well known all over the world for its spices.
Karafuu Hotel Beach Resort is one of the few International five star puppetries in Zanzibar that was officially opened in December 1995 and the European management has been consistent even since giving Karafuu Hotel Beach Resort one of the best reputations that Zanzibar Island has to offer.
Karafuu Hotel Beach Resort has been built on seven hectares of pleasant landscaped tropical gardens, shaded by coconut palms, and surrounded by long deserted magical white sandy beaches, lapped by the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and dotted with coral cliffs that provide the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun.
The resort itself has been constructed in harmony with the environment and using local materials such as makuti for the roofs and coral stone for the walls, providing elegant comfort in style with luxurious finishes and first quality materials that have been combined to give great attention to detail and reach a comfortable harmony between ancient and modern styles in this tropical paradise.

The hotels was great and and everyone went out there way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Thanks to the hotel manager who made sure we had enough lobster and fish on the menu.
I would go back in a heartbeat

Karafuu was fantastic. Staff were friendly and good fun. Food was lovely and freshness and variety was impressive. The snorkling was so cool, I only wish I had done more of it. The reef that lines the beach outside of the hotel is a bit of a bummer, but by far no reason to exclude this hotel as it is the reason the snorkling is so great. Be careful not to step on an urchin "it will make your holiday very much terrible", sage advice from on eof the staff. The locals offer great tours which are cheaper and more personal than those offered by the hotel. Speak to Faizel, he is inexpensive and the expriences he offers are amazing. I recommend his trip "Safari Blue Two" Reff snorkling floowed by fields of starfish as big as your head, then a tour of the mangroves and finally the best seafood lunch you will EVER have: lobster, calamari, line fish curry, roti, chips, Seared linefish all caught fresh that day for our trip. The Masai who head up the security at the hotel were so interesting and friendly. A trip to Stonetown is a must, the drive is about 1 1/2 hrs from the hotel. Spice tour not so much of a must, but interesting none-the-less. All in all, we had a fantastic time and cant wait to return. Jambo!
