Then, do no more than enjoy four idyllic nights by the beach. A honeymoon getaway without comparison, never to be forgotten.
You will be introduced to Stone Town, the characterful quarter of the island capital with its narrow streets and patchwork of architectural styles. After one night there, we will transfer you to your beach hotel for extended time together in one of nature’s most perfect settings. True relaxation, at its very, very best. Just kick back with the soundtrack of the Indian Ocean. At the end of your stay, we will transfer you back to the airport for your return flight.

Leisurely. This trip is all about relaxation! Apart from your guided walk around Stone Town, you are unlikely to be doing anything very strenuous, though of course you might decide to take part in some land- or water-based activities during the beach section of your Zanzibar stay.
Accommodation during your stay is in Comfort Plus category, with one-night hotel accommodation in Stone Town and four nights at your beach hotel. Our Comfort Plus level accommodations are carefully selected by Easy Travel to provide the very best options in the category.
On arrival at Zanzibar’s Abeid Amani Karume International Airport, you will be met by our driver who will take you on the short 20-minute transfer to your hotel in Stone Town, the historic quarter of Zanzibar City. You have the evening at leisure and your dinner tonight will be provided by your hotel.
This morning you will enjoy breakfast at your hotel, before meeting our expert local guide for a tour of fascinating Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Over the centuries, many cultures have left their impressions on Zanzibar and it is perhaps in Stone Town where you can most easily see their influences. Your guide will lead you first to the colourful market, awash with exotic smells and buzzing with bartering locals. Afterwards, you will visit the calm of the 19th C cathedral, built on the former site of the slave market after the 1873 abolition of slavery.
As you wander the narrow streets and alleys, you’ll pass the Arab houses with their inner courtyards, hidden behind heavy doors. You can compare their style with the Indian residences, adorned with balustrades and metal railings. Amongst the town’s historic sites are the ‘Tip Tip House,’ the Old Fort and the People’s Palace Museum. Lunch will be taken at the Silk Route Indian rooftop restaurant, with views to the ocean. The Silk Route is full of character, so enjoy the excellent cuisine, perhaps washing it down with a cocktail. After the tour, we will transfer you to your chosen beach hotel for your dinner, an evening at leisure and the remainder of your stay.
Today, you are free to do exactly what you want – and to do as little as you want. After all, you can simply relax by your hotel pool or down on the beach, perhaps under a swaying palm tree. If a day of total inactivity is really not your thing, you can swim or take advantage of one of the activities on offer via your hotel reception.
Today is a second full day for you to relax at your oceanside hotel, have a gentle swim in the sea or to enjoy the more active facilities on offer. Or, of course, you can set out to explore a little bit more of this beautiful island. The reception staff at your hotel will be happy to help arrange any activity or excursion that takes your interest.
Wake up in the idyllic setting of your Zanzibar beach hotel, for your last full day on this blissful island. A big decision awaits you once again, simply whether to do nothing or to engage in some land- or water-based activity with your beloved.
After taking breakfast at your hotel, we will transfer you to Abeid Amani Karume International Airport for your onward flight. If you have a later departure, we will arrange for you to have lunch before you leave the hotel.
