smilesLocated on the northern most tip of Zanzibar, Smiles is perfectly situated for our guests to experience the best of both worlds – total secluded relaxation, and a short distance away, the nightlife of Nungwi and Kendwa. And because there are only 16 rooms, you can make the place your home.

There are no crowds, no shops, just plenty of places to read a book, laze under the shade of a palm tree, or just watch the dhows returning from a day’s fishing with the sun setting in the background. And for those wanting to do something a little more energetic, our friendly staff are more than happy to organise snorkelling, diving, fishing and other activities with operators in the area.

Our intimate, makuti-thatch restaurant overlooks the beach, and serves only the freshest Swahili and international dishes – reflecting the best that the Indian Ocean has to offer. And if you fancy dining on the beach by candlelight, or having a bbq with friends, just ask – because at Smiles we’re happy if you’re happy. All our rooms have a balcony or terrace with sea views, a/c, satellite TV (if you can tear yourself away from the view) and pristine ensuite bathrooms with hot and cold water.smilesThe raised beds are draped in mosquito nets, and so comfortable our guests sometimes find it hard to leave. Luckily there’s no need, as we’re more than happy to serve a sumptuous breakfast in bed.

So if you’re looking for a relaxed, laid back atmosphere, personal service and a place you can treat like your own, look no further. You’ve found your home in Zanzibar. Room facilities include: – En-suite bathrooms with hot-and cold water – Air-conditioning – Telephone – Satellite television – Mosquito nets – Hair dryers – Safes
