Entertainment & Sports

Karafuu Village Beach Resort and Spa – East Coast, Zanzibar has a host of entertainment and sporting options to enjoy and experience in Zanzibar.

Karafuu is ideally suited to those who are interested in relaxing, diving, snorkelling and enjoying the in-house entertainment (including a disco).

The beach at Pingwe is great for strolling along and one can watch the local fishermen at work. Hardened sea swimmers will be fine bathing, but those with young children simply wishing to take a dip may feel safer sticking to the hotel’s large pool as the sea is only accessible down a slippery concrete jetty. However, the same living reef that makes relaxed sea-bathing difficult does prove delightful for snorkelling.

There are tennis courts, spots for beach volleyball and water aerobics lessons for the sporty and for the less so, a TV corner and pool table as well as Wi-Fi access. The hotel also has a massage room for those who want to de-stress.

Various excursions can be arranged through the hotel, though these may prove cheaper to arrange independently. Furthermore, the hotel’s remote location does make such trips costly.

Other facilities offered by the Karafuu include a boutique (more expensive than many of the market stalls and shops of Zanzibar), conference centre, exchange service (rates tend to be far worse than at banks on the island and at Dar Es Saleem) onsite PADI dive centre and wedding and honeymoon services
