The resort can be reached from the mainland only by plane. Once on the island, the resort is situated about 40 km away from most points on the island, and can be reached by local bus or taxi.
All of the hotel's rooms feature elegant, original furnishings. Whilst maintaining the traditional style of Zanzibar, each room has a private bathroom with a shower and a bidet, as well as a ceiling fan and air conditioning. All are equipped with a double bed, a direct dial telephone, a safe and a minibar.
This hotel features a swimming pool and massage treatments are available for an additional fee. The large beach means guests can also use the services of the adjoining hotel, the Palumbo Reef, which organises sports activities such as beach volleyball, 5-a-side football, bocce and beach tennis. For diving and kite surfing, the hotel has a special arrangement with a centre located outside the resort. The island also offers guests who enjoy boat trips and snorkelling the chance to hire boats for leisure trips or deep-sea fishing.
