Our base for this week has been Ocean Paradise Hotel. As we leave the place I thought I’d share some pics of this luxury resort. This is something which would have been unaffordable from the UK, but a benefit of Tanzanian living is the accessibility, and cheaper flights go a long way to making the trip affordable.
Located in the North East of the island, our resort borders the Indian Ocean with shallow waters leading to a reef about a kilometre off shore.
There are three restaurants and a central swimming pool. Breakfast is served in the upper restaurant, whereas our evening meal is served by the pool or on the beach. Evening meals are accompanied by entertainments and meals are a range of different buffets, Indian, BBQ, African, Chinese, Italian. The pool has a bar and a Happy Hour from 4 ’til 5 with free cake and tea/coffee and half price cocktails. We are here on a Half- Board basis so this fills a gap from Breakfast ’til Evening Meal.
