Zanzibar accomodation

I am planning a trip to Tanzania in August. I am doing a safari and then spending about 5 days on Zanzibar, and I thought I would treat myself to some luxury. I plan to stay at Emersons & Green for a few nights, and then head somewhere beachy and gorgeous for a few nights.

I cant say that price is no object, it is some object, particularly given the feeble Aussie $.

Can anyone recommend a lovely place out of Stone Town to spend a few days, with a bit of luxury, but not too over the top?

Fionia, I went to Zanzibar two years ago and stayed at the Dhow Palace Hotel. It was wonderful but not as luxury minded as Emmerson's. When in Stone Town make sure you go to Samburu's Two Tables for dinner at least once. This will be an experience not forgotten.

As for the beach scene. I went on to Ras Nungwe and stayed at the Ras Nungwe Beach Hotel. This was abosolutely lovely and the diving/snorkling was fantastic. The only drawback (a big one for me) was that I was travelling with another girl and this was truly a place for couples (if that matters to you). Have a great time. Willow.

Thanks Willow, I will be travelling alone and so couple-heaven is not where I want to be! I can understand why you found it a drawback.
I have heard lots of good things about Two Tables, so it is definitely on my list.
