Top 10 Honeymoon Collection, Zanzibar – The Most Romantic Hotels & Honeymoon Specials

This post is also available in: German

Honeymoon in the Tropical Paradise Zanzibar

For honeymoons, of course, we always gladly recommend Seychelles or Mauritius because of the unbeatable honeymoon discounts, but Zanzibar has captured our hearts. The island Unguja – better known as Zanzibar, which means the coast of the blacks, is situated in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa and is an absolute romantic paradise!  You are surrounded by beautiful natural scenery, picture-perfect beaches, tropical climate, warm-hearted people, and delicious fresh food.

While Mauritius and the Seychelles have already become quite touristy, with especially La Digue running the risk of being completely concreted over, Zanzibar still has its original charm with the hotels hidden amid tropical palm trees. You still have the opportunity to experience paradise up close: you can stay right on the beach, go swimming withdolphins, snorkeling or diving, or watch the sunset on a typical dhow boat. There are so many romantic moments to enjoy.

Our Top 10 Most Romantic Hotels

On Zanzibar one still finds authentic, small boutique hotels, eco-lodges and also some bigger yet romantic resorts. There is something to suit everyone’s taste and budget. We have been lucky enough, to have visited 4 of these top 10 hotels so far! Be inspired!
