Discovering Ocean Paradise Resort And Spa: A Serene Haven in Zanzibar

Escape To A World Of Luxury And Comfort At Ocean Paradise Resort And Spa In Zanzibar

It is, as the name suggests, a little piece of paradise located on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean. The resort is a 60-minute drive from Zanzibar Airport, passing through unspoiled scenery and typical African villages where life has changed little in hundreds of years. At Ocean Paradise Resort & Spa, you will be greeted by a blaze of color as you sweep down the imposing driveway, as you pass through the entrance gate, and be captivated as you arrive in reception looking out over the resort and the azure blue sea. Mature coconut palms swinging in the breeze, a white sandy beach, beautifully landscaped gardens, traditional African-style round chalets with pitched makuti roofs, a stunning waterfall feature, and one of the largest swimming pools in Zanzibar are just some of the sights that await you. A big smile and the greeting of “Jambo” will be the first words you hear, as you begin to feel the warmth that the people of Zanzibar are famed for.
