Think a holiday in Zanzibar is out of your price range? Think again! This amazing deal includes flights and a 4-star hotel for seven nights.
I was lucky enough to enjoy a holiday in Zanzibar many years ago, and trust me, the word ‘paradise’ is an understatement! Zanzibar is the Indian Ocean, so you can expect idyllic white sandy beaches and warm waters, but it also offers so much more. Although Zanzibar is full of luxury hotels, most of them are built to blend into the environment, so it still feels unspoilt.
Watching the locals fishing in their dhows, while you chill out on a hammock is typical of the lazy days you can expect there. Zanzibar has an underwater paradise too, it is the perfect place to try snorkelling or scuba diving. In fact my husband got his PADI dive licence there in five days.
Of course if you want action, you can have that too. The capital Stone Town, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is well worth a visit. The Old Fort, bustling bazaars and Marrakech style medina feel exotic, and strolling through it’s narrow streets you can’t help with fall in love with its ornate houses. In fact, Stone Town gets its name from these very houses that are built with local stone.
I found a great deal staying in the popular Pongwe Bay Resort. Located on the beach and surrounded by lush gardens you will be treated to a junior suite with a sea view. There is a pool, sauna and solarium on site as well as a host of water sports available on the beach. This hotel receives excellent reviews on Tripadvisor and was also awarded a Certificate of Excellence.
Fly from Dublin to Zanzibar on the 5th of September and enjoy a seven night stay at the Pongwe Bay Resort for only €892 per person. This amazing holiday in Zanzibar includes flights with Ethiopian Airlines and accommodation with breakfast for seven nights. I flew with Ethiopian Airlines to Cape Town and enjoyed their service. You also get 2 x 23kg checked bags included in the price of the air fare!
