Breezes Beach Club and Spa, with its generous range of facilities and activities, this affordable, family-run resort outperforms its price category, making it one of our favourite places to stay on Zanzibar.

Location

Breezes sits on a pleasant stretch of beach along the Michamvi Peninsula, on the south-east of the island. This is a spectacular beach, with powdery white sand and clear waters, although in recent years there has been an increase in beach sellers touting day trips and sunglasses.

Rooms

With 70 rooms available, Breezes lacks the intimate feel offered in smaller-scale properties.

There are three different categories of room available – standard, deluxe, and suites. They are similar in décor and size, but deluxe rooms are located closer to the beach than standard rooms, while suites have larger bathrooms, a walk-in wardrobe, a private sunbathing area, and an upper-deck balcony.

All rooms are housed in timber-and-thatch bungalows, with adequate air-conditioning, double or twin beds, a sofa bed, and comfortable seating. Furnishings are a tasteful mix of crisp white linen, warm gold tones, dark woods and brass lanterns. Due to the rectangular nature of the site guests are not guaranteed a sea-view, however the beachfront is only a short walk away.

Communal Areas

Breezes offers a sizeable range of onsite restaurant and bar options, with options varying from beachfront dining to more intimate candlelit dinners for two in the Safari Bar. Guests keen to work off those extra calories can make use of the resort’s ample fitness facilities, while those simply looking to relax can do so on the beach (one of the nicest on the island) or in the award-winning Frangipani Spa, which offers facials, body treatments, and massages.

Activities

There is an exceptional array of activities offered at Breezes, ranging from sports to entertainment. In addition to a spacious swimming pool, floodlit tennis court, well-equipped fitness centre, movie room and water-sports centre, the wide-ranging facilities also cater for volleyball, floating trampolines, kite surfing, snorkelling and bike hire.

The Rising Sun Dive Centre provides first-class diving facilities, with well-trained instructors who will accompany you on dives along the fantastic 65km reef a mile offshore. Guests can also take part in guided reef walks, where you will discover the local marine life’s natural habitat.

DRY SEASON

A brief interlude of dry and sunny weather before the long rains arrive in late March.

Its proximity to the equator and position on the Indian Coastline means that Zanzibar has a tropical climate with consistent warm-to-hot temperatures throughout the year. The midday temperature averages around 32°C/90°F through the majority of the year. Mornings are more pleasant at 22°C/72°F on average.

There are two wet seasons in the majority of Tanzania, and Zanzibar is no exception. The first, known as the ‘long rains’, takes place between March and May, while the milder short rains take place between October and December. Between these, there are two drier spells, January – February and June – October.

DRY TO WET SEASON TRANSITION

The beginning and end of the rains varies each year, but generally this period is the wettest time of the year. This wet season is often characterised by overcast skies, consecutive days of rain, and relatively strong winds. Water clarity is also quite poor.

Overall, this is a poor time of year to visit, though bargains can be found with the relatively cheap low season rates.

WET SEASON - 'SHORT RAINS'

This is a rather unpredictable time of the year, with occasional heavy showers or thunderstorms interspersing the sunny spells. While technically the wet season, the rains are not as intense during this period as during the long rains. November can therefore still be a good time to visit. Water clarity can be surprisingly good, making it possible to go scuba-diving and snorkelling.
