Gold Zanzibar is located in Kendwa along the northwest coast of Zanzibar.

The medium size hotel consists of 67 bedrooms divided into deluxe garden view, deluxe sea view, beach suite, beach suite with pavillon and luxury villa. Deluxe garden view and deluxe ocean view are all the same and set back in the garden on four 2-storey buildings. All Garden rooms are located on the ground floor and offer no sea view while all ocean view rooms are situated on the second floor except a few rooms set on a building closer to the beach [not on the beach front] which are sold as sea view even though their view cannot cope with the one of upper floor rooms. The 12 suites occupy six single-storey buildings between the garden and the beach, some of them  just behind the pool area, a  few others behind the villas which are situated lie on the beach. Beach suites and beach suites with pavilion are the same except that guests of the latter have their own dedicated gazebo. The 3 villas [Africa, Italia, Arabia] consist of two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom, lounge and private sun deck.
Each room features air conditioning, ceiling fans, separate shower and bath tub, mini bar, satellite TV. Suites also offer DVD and Nesepresso coffee machine.

The non-tidal beach has long been one of the most beautiful on the island, it is shame that over the years the number of visitors has grown exponentially.

Gold Zanzibar is complemented by two bars and two restaurant set in the garden and on the beach next to the swimming-pool area, the gym, the SPA and the gift shop.

Diving and snorkeling can be arranged with the hotel's diving centre while deep sea fishing can be arranged with Zanzibar Watersports, the water sports centre at Ras Nungwi.

Gold Zanzibar offers an upper-mid level of servicing and might be an attractive option for those who do not dislike tourist destinations. If you want to combine the variety of facilities typically offered by a large hotel with a less crowed beach then consider staying at the high-rated Breezes Beach Club and Baraza located along the southeastern coast of the island.
