Located in Pingwe on the north-east peninsula of Zanzibar, this large four star resort offers comfortable and hassle free accommodation on the Indian Ocean without the worries that a trip to Africa can arouse. The hotel offers half-board, full-board or all-inclusive packages.
The accommodation on offer is various. There are 28 standard (Garden) rooms. These are located some distance back from the ocean front and beach and do not offer attractive views as the resort lies between them and the sea. These lower priced rooms are basic but pleasant. All are en suite with air-conditioning and ceiling fans, hairdryer, mini-bar, safe and telephone. Note that water in this region often runs brackish for bathing.
Food at Karafuu is good The resort's 3 restaurants mean there is plenty of choice. Breakfast is not exciting but is filling and fresh; breads, fruits and pastries with hot options available (eggs and bacon). The included dinner is from an extensive buffet. There are always meat, fish and vegetarian options on offer as well as various salads and desserts. Dinner can be eaten outdoors, but one must be prepared to eat either early or late to secure an al fresco spot. Changing live entertainment accompanies dinner nightly.
