Karafuu Beach Resort and Spa offers an enviable range of accommodation options, 150 spacious air-conditioned units with beautiful furnished veranda, built under african makuti thatch, all decorated in a traditional Zanzibari style which lends a note of authenticity to your stay.

Karafuu Beach Resort & SPA

Set on a secluded stretch of powder-white sand and a gorgeous tropical garden on the island’s east coast, just 50 minutes drive from the airport, Karafuu is the only hotel where you can enjoy a comfortable swim in the ocean at low tide. A 200 meters path in front of the hotel leads you from the beach to a giant natural swimming pool.

More than a resort

An authentic, unique, and precious reality. The enchanting location serves as the perfect backdrop to highlight the charm of respecting traditions, accompanied by genuine smiles of ebony and pearl. The essence of pure pleasure is simplicity meticulously carved into the details. The blooming of a sensation of a distant past that binds us because we all come from here. Africa is the mother, Karafuu the magical place where we can meet her and walk with her, hand in hand, towards the thousand shades of turquoise that paint the horizon, with hesitant senses walking barefoot on the soft and pure carpet of coral sand. This is love.
