Situated on the north-east coast of Zanzibar, the all-inclusive Melia Zanzibar resort is situated on a 40 acre estate with a beautiful beach of pearlescent white sand lapped by warm ocean waters, 300 meters long, situated at the very end of the property to procure the perfect combination with nature.
The powder white sand of the beach provides a dramatic natural entrance to the resort’s beautiful Gabi beach restaurant nestled quietly in the palm trees. Feel the beat, have a drink, and enjoy the grill menu in an informal atmosphere. About one kilometer from the resort's Main Lobby, golf carts every 15-20 minutes can take you to this little piece of paradise, where comfortable sun lounges draped in soft towels are arranged under the palm trees.
One of the other landmarks of Melia Zanzibar is the beautiful jetty that transports you out into the Indian Ocean. At the end of your walk you will discover the Jetty Bar & Restaurant - ready to welcome you for pre and after dinner drinks and snacks. Alternatively, the Pool Bar is located alongside the main infinity pool and offers an extensive menu of cocktails, international wine and beers and other beverages. The Spices Restaurant is modelled after the traditional spice market found in Stone Town, offering a relaxed dining experience that features an international mixture of cuisines with a distinct Arabian and African influence in buffet style.

Seasons in the Serengeti
Gran Melia Arusha
If you are in need for more R&R before, during and after your safari, then flying into and out of just the Central Serengeti for a few nights, with more time to then spend relaxing on a white sandy beach without a care in the world, may suit you better. The Central Serengeti is host to the migration for several months, but the general game viewing here is good all year round, thanks to the permanent waters of the Seronera River.
This is a 12 night itinerary including Arusha, The Serengeti and Zanzibar.
