Zanzibar, a destination full to the brim with rich history and culture, lying just off the coast of Tanzania, boasts beautiful white sandy beaches, festivals and year-round sunshine, making it ideal for a winter escape.

Meliá Zanzibar is a luxury, all inclusive beach resort situated on the north-east coast of the exotic island of Zanzibar, in Tanzania, also known as the ‘Spice Island’, where the Tanzanian spices, such as cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg originate from.

Zanzibar is full of celebrations, throughout the year. During the middle of February, there is The Sauti za Busara music festival – a six-day cultural extravaganza. The festival offers an eclectic selection of traditional and modern music, accompanied with theatre, film, comedy and dance – an event not to be missed if you’re in Zanzibar.

The Zanzibar hotel is around 45 minutes from the international airport of Zanzibar, and the capital city Stone Town, a Unesco World Heritage site.
