    Paradise on Earth

    Unique gateaway in a secluded area in Zanzibar. Amazing team of hosts, high quality gastronomy, perfect to unwind, rebalance and enjoy nature’s beautiful offerings. The colors of sky and ocean, the brightness of a sky illuminated with stars, the softness of the winds take you to a different dimension. Big thumbs up to Nigel.

    Bliss.

    Truly sensational. This ‘hotel’ only has 4 rooms so it has a really personal feel, the staff seem to take real pleasure in making you feel welcome, relaxed, well fed, and thoroughly looked after. The room was brilliant with great views and a private plunge pool. Asante sana.

    Hello & Jambo, We stayed at Jua Retreat for 10 days and it was perfect. The hotel deserves the name "PARADISE". The bungalows, the food and drink, the atmosphere and this view! But the absolute highlights are Hassan, Jamal, Emmanuel, Mousa, the kitchen chief, the cleaning team, our driver, our guide and the poolboys! We have never had such a great service. The team is incredible and we really enjoyed the talks. Especially we want to thank Hassan, he surprised us with a meal on a boat in the moonlight. Thank you so much! Hassan and his team are incredibly nice and good people. We will miss you! You only deserve the BEST! The concept of Jua is unique and just great. We are sure that we will meet again. Asante sana! We wish you the best! We really miss the juices, fruits, coconuts, tambi, chapati and poolside food! ;) Greetings from Lars and Ari (Shilole) from Germany! ;)
