Honeymoon in Zanzibar

The best lodges & hotels for a Zanzibar honeymoon

A honeymoon to Zanzibar is perfect for a romantic beach break and a relaxing getaway. Most lodges are perfect for celebrating such a special occasion, with luxurious seafront honeymoon suites, private stretches of white sandy beach, and thoughtful staff. To combine some luxury with adventure, why not add a few nights on Zanzibar on to the end of your Africa safari honeymoon.

The better times to visit are in January and February and from June to November, in these months you can generally expect for warm weather and blue skies, but also be prepared for the odd rain shower here and there. In other months it can rain frequently and also become very humid, so we wouldn't normally recommend honeymooning during this period.


The pavilions at Kilindi are exceptionally spacious, luxurious and secluded. It's very private here; each pavilion has two plunge pools and plenty of space to relax. It’s an idyllic spot and one of our top hotels for a romantic Zanzibar honeymoon.

White Sand Villas

The luxurious, spacious villas and array of facilities make White Sand Villas a great choice for a Zanzibar honeymoon. You can enjoy a couple’s massage in the spa, a dip in your private pool, or a romantic dinner on the beach.

Ikuka Safari Camp

With spectacular views and attentive service, Ikuka offers a very romantic option for a Tanzanian honeymoon. Couples can relax in the beautiful pool while its six elegant rooms offer both luxury and seclusion.

Zuri Zanzibar

Zuri Zanzibar is a larger resort with a lively atmosphere, luxurious villas, and number of bars and restaurants to choose from - great for a romantic honeymoon on Zanzibar. The beach is less tidal here, allowing you to swim throughout the day.
