Apart from the name – after all who doesn’t like or enjoy gold – the location of this 5-star property is superb, right on the most magnificent stretch of beach at Kendwa on Zanzibar’s north-west coast. There is very little tidal movement so the amazing turquoise ocean is available for swimming all day. A combination of African and Arab influences, elegant touches of Italian style and detail, and the hallmark gold and white décor theme permeate the resort – from the spacious and stylish rooms and suites to the funky bathrooms, stylish restaurants, relaxing bars and the Balinese-style Spa.
