Spices, the main restaurant offers a buffet, breakfast, lunch and dinner. We provide a wide selection to appeal to the many tastes of our guests. Some continental cuisine, a few more adventuresome, international dishes and a Zanzibari special to try. There is a pasta corner, a pizza corner and always something fresh on the grill. If you haven't filled up, we recommend the desserts, cakes, mousses or perhaps fresh fruit for the very well behaved! Combine that selection with warm, friendly service and you have all the ingredients for wonderful meals! All meals in Spices are part of the all-inclusive package.

Opening Times 12:00 am - 12:00 pm

Beach Bar

Traditionally, Baraza is the sitting area outside of a Swahili home. It is also a meeting place. Mid-morning to night, you may retreat to Baraza, a two-story beach bar - it is a space of peace and tranquility looking over the powder white sands and the astounding turquoise of the Indian Ocean. The palms will fan you, the waves lull you and the view delight you!

Opening Times 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Upepo Swim up Bar

Upepo means wind in Swahili. Travel back in time on the wind, floating lazily like the old Arab dhows upon the tide. The Upepo pool swim-up bar overlooking the Indian Ocean makes sure your sails are forever billowing!
