Neptune Pwani - 4.3 out of 5 based on 26 votes
Neptune Pwani Zanzibar

Considered to be the top choice in its category.

The bright pink, purple and white flowers accent the beautifully manicured lawns between the public areas and pathways. The rooms are spacious and feature traditional wooden furniture though they have air-conditioning, telephones and televisions as standard.


There are more luxurious, large ‘all singing all dancing’ resorts in Zanzibar, but this one is a particular favourite due to the architecture of individual thatched cottages and generous proportions of the gardens, pools and public areas. When you are looking to unwind in an environment where everything is catered for you, especially when travelling with older children, Neptune is a great option.

Neptune Pwani - The Details

Neptune Pwani was originally an independent hotel which was bought by a larger luxury hotel group. The service is fantastic and the food sensational for the all-inclusive buffet style experience. There is a fresh fish grill, pasta station (where you create your own dishes) and then more traditional style buffet meals served by smiling chefs. The selection of cheese and chocolate based desserts is pretty much unrivalled in Zanzibar, though we know the secret to be a monthly food container shipped from Italy! Pizzeria, a la carte restaurant, you’ll not be disappointed with the food and wine.

Naturally seafood and traditional Zanzibari dishes are served alongside the international favourites. The resort itself is spacious and never feels too crowded. A natural line of palm trees on the beach provide shade over sun loungers and the huge free form pools are perfect for families, friends and couples to relax around. There’s a swim-up bar and baraza area in the centre of the main pool.

Neptune Pwani - Opinions and Reviews

Unlike many operators we not only visit all the hotels we offer regularly but we also stay in them. Please find a few hints, tips and opinions from our staff plus some genuine feedback from our clients below.

Neptune Pwani is one of the best value All Inclusive hotels in Zanzibar. It is slightly smaller that some of the large hotels but it has all the facilities you expect of a resort. The swim up bar is a nice touch.
The service is good, as is the food. The beach can get pretty crowded around here, which can be a bit of a let down when compared to other areas of the island.
