A wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa. It's spacious and beautifully furnished. The bedrooms are all air conditioned, en-suite with king-sized beds. The terrace, pool area and gardens are huge with enough sun beds, day beds and sofas, in both sun and shade, for at least a dozen people. It's right on the beach. Pamela's cooking is superb - we ate every breakfast, lunch and dinner on the terrace. The staff really looked after us. Patrick was great to deal with from start to finish. If we go back to Zanzibar, we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We LOVE Villa Loiki. It is our all time fave!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love Villa Loiki. The house is beautiful, comfortable, and pure luxury. We love the pool - it's great for small kids as it as a large area that is very shallow where they can play. The beach is quiet, and we love taking the boat out for snorkeling on nearby reefs. The staff is helpful and there are lots of great spots for naps. We can't recommend it highly enough!

Complete luxury

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property is completely accurate. It is a perfect villa for a family (or families). Four very good sized double bedrooms (two of them are en suite and two share a bathroom). The villa is very well maintained and is fully staffed. All the staff were great. Patrick provides a great service. As for food, the in house chef is well worth the $15 a day (you can tell them what to buy and pay for the food costs). She will make you whatever you want.

The facilities are great. The villa comes with its own car and boat if you want to travel around. The pool is great and there is a section of private beach before the steps that lead down to the public beach and sea.

Overall, a great experience. I would gladly return!
