Ocean Paradise Resort

Situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast, overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean, it is as the name suggests a little piece of paradise.

At Ocean Paradise Resort Zanzibar, you will be greeted by a blaze of colour as you sweep down the imposing driveway, saluted by a Masai warrior as you pass through the entrance gate and be captivated as you arrive in reception and look out over the resort and the azure blue sea. Mature coconut palms swinging in the breeze, white sandy beach, beautiful landscaped gardens, traditional style round chalets with pitched makuti roof, a stunning waterfall feature and the largest swimming pool 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.


All rooms include air-conditioning and ceiling fans, satellite televisions, direct-dial telephones, mini-bars hair-dryers and safes. All are en suite and have private balconies. All are sea facing.

The rooms are large and very comfortable. Junior suites include an extra adjoining living room.


The resort offers a choice of restaurants. The Ocean Restaurant is the main eatery. It is on the second floor and has wonderful views. Here an extensive daily breakfast buffet is served as well as, by candlelight, the evening buffet. The menu changes daily. Food is good and the hotel uses fresh local produce. However Ocean Paradise’s menu is not as exciting or consistently well prepared as that of some of the other resorts in the region

The Jahazi Restaurant serves snacks and pizza by the pool all day. The food on offer is average but satisfying. The resort’s beach front Mawimbi Restaurant is its most exclusive option. It serves Zanzibar Fusion cuisine (typical Zanzibari dishes with Asian and European influences). The hotel provides a variety of night-time entertainments from live music and African dancing to acrobatic displays.
