Situated on Zanzibar’s picturesque North East coast, overlooking the turquoise Indian Ocean, it is as the name suggests a little piece of paradise. From your arrival at Zanzibar Airport, the resort is a meandering 45 minute journey through un-spoilt scenery, passing typical African villages where the way of life has changed little for hundreds of years.



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.

Rooms & Suites

Designed as a traditional African roundhouse but featuring all the creature comforts you could need, our rooms and suites are truly unrivalled. Set in 6.5 hectares of serene and colourful gardens, leading to a white sandy beach and the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, each room is indeed an idyllic setting.

Nestled under a pitched makuti roof, each room is sea facing with large patio doors that open up to a private balcony, where you can sit and take in the sedate pace of African life.

A peaceful sleep is guaranteed in a fully air-conditioned room with comfortable twin or king size beds draped with mosquito netting. The addition of satellite television and radio, direct dial telephone, mini-bar, hair dryer and a unique curved en-suite bathroom, with shower, toilet and bidet, complete the facilities that will make your stay relaxed and enjoyable.

Dining & Entertainment

Ocean Paradise Resort Zanzibar features two restaurants that offer the finest food in Zanzibar, using only the best in local and imported produce.

The Ocean Restaurant, sitting two floors up, has panoramic views over the resort and the Indian Ocean beyond. The Restaurant serves a sumptuous breakfast with an array of freshly baked breads, croissants and Danish pastries, cereals, fresh squeezed juices, local fruits, cold cuts and cheeses and of course, traditional cooked dishes. In the evening, the mood changes, with soft lighting, candles and an extensive themed buffet which changes daily.

Down at the pool, the Jahazi Restaurant serves a variety of snacks and the best wood-fired pizzas in Zanzibar. The menu offers an a la carte selection of international and authentic Zanzibari dishes.

Each day, there is something different to keep you entertained. From traditional African dancers, acrobats and our resident band, to big screen sports broadcasts and sports competitions.

Our Guest Relations department is on hand to look after your requirements and help you select the best tours to get the most out of your Zanzibar holiday.

Conference & Incentives

Ocean Paradise boasts one of the largest and best equipped conference facilities in Zanzibar and has been host to major events such as the S.A.R.P.C.C.O AGM Chief of Police Conference and World Bank.

The fully air-conditioned main conference room seats up to 180 persons and features a built in screen and projector. In addition, our trained technicians can assist with high quality audio-visual equipment, ensuring your presentations are delivered professionally and your conference runs smoothly.

For those incentive groups, our sales team is on hand to provide support for both the conference and social arrangements. You will find their knowledge of the local market invaluable in planning your event and their attention to detail will ensure that all arrangements are checked and double checked, ensuring a successful event and enjoyable stay.

Sports & Recreation

Zanzibar is renowned for some of the best diving in the world. At Ocean Paradise, we have a professional PADI accredited dive company on site to organize and oversee your diving trips. With an unrivalled local knowledge they will be able to organize the best dives to suit your requirements.

For novices, there is full tuition and certification available from qualified divers.

Other water sports activities include windsurfing, sailing and kayaking, together with an array of dolphin tours and boat trips.

A dedicated tour office is available in the resort with a wide selection of tours to choose from, including the Spice Island excursion, a visit to Stonetown to take in the history and shopping, or a visit to Jozani Forest to see the Red Colobus Monkeys, to name but a few. Our Guest Relations team is always on hand to give assistance if required.

“For those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land the resort features a fully equipped fitness centre, beach volleyball, billiards and table tennis, with competitions organized by our animation team.”

Weddings & Honeymoons

Ocean Paradise is without doubt one of the most romantic and idyllic settings you could wish for, either for your wedding or honeymoon.

If you want to tie-the-knot on a white sandy beach with a backdrop of the Indian Ocean, our sales team can make your dream a reality. We will handle all your arrangements from the service to the celebrations that follow.

Honeymooners get that extra special Ocean Paradise treatment. There’s a bottle of bubbly awaiting you in the room, a romantic lobster dinner on the beach and an upgrade to a beach front room when available. Your honeymoon is guaranteed to be a relaxing affair, lazing by the pool soaking up the African sun or stretched out in a hammock under a shady tree.
