Why We Love Tulia Unique Beach Resort

One of our best sellers and most favorite properties on Zanzibar is undoubtedly Tulia Unique Beach Resort.

While many properties in Zanzibar can boast gorgeous white sand beaches, exclusive villas, and exotic gardens to explore – this lodge sets itself apart with the many special offerings it promises to each and every guest.



It Starts at Check-In

The special treatment starts from the very moment you arrive at Tulia.

You're greeted with a cold towel, a glass of refreshing juice, and a welcome basket of tropical fruits. The General Manager, Mr. Sinogl will then personally take you on a tour of the property to explain where everything is and what you can expect from your stay.

Once you enter your villa, you will be greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine and fresh floral decorations. Welcome to paradise!


Complimentary Inclusions

Many properties on Zanzibar offer all-inclusive packages that cover food and alcohol, but very few take care of you like Tulia can.

Every guest at Tulia - from full board to bed and breakfast - is treated to a complimentary 1-hour spa treatment. While you can usually expect to pay $80 - $150 USD for this at other resorts, guests are able to select from a range of spa 'menu options' including full body massages, pedicures, and more!

Guests can also indulge in free daily yoga classes, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, and cycling. If working on your tan isn't your idea of a dream holiday, Tulia has well and truly got you covered!


I Love the Night Life, I Love to Boogie...

Tulia prides itself on being an exclusive and relaxing environment, but that doesn't mean the nights are boring!

Every night at Tulia sees free entertainment with your dinner. Whether this is a local band, acrobats, or traditional dance - you're always going to get dinner and a show as part of your dining experience.

The restaurant is also home to an impressive collection of tropical fish, meaning you're able to go on an aquatic safari at any time of day or night.

After dinner, why not indulge in a little shisha in Tulia's new shisha lounge? It's the perfect place to chill out and enjoy some of the flavourful shisha blends they have on offer.


For Big Kids and Little Kids

Kids of all ages are bound to love their time at Tulia.

For the little ones, Tulia has waterslides and a variety of pool toys to keep them entertained when they're not out cycling, snorkeling, and kayaking.

For the big kids, the resort recently purchased the very same Armstrong Siddely Sapphire car that was driven by the last Omani Sultan to call Zanzibar home! If you've ever wanted to take a ride in a truly historic vehicle, you can pay for the experience of driving like the Sultans of old did!


A Romantic Escape

If you are a honeymooner – the Tulia team can arrange a private and super romantic atmosphere. You will be always surrounded with flowers, champagne, delicious dinners on the beach, and very special attention.

Far away from the tourist crowds of Nungwi, Tulia Unique Beach Resort specializes in making special occasions every bit as memorable as they should be.


Saying Goodbye

It's never easy to say goodbye after a fantastic vacation, so Tulia softens the blow with some cute parting gifts to remember your trip by!


The Shadows of Africa team is always delighted to come back again & again to Tulia & experience the bespoke service, exceptional attention to detail, & luxury comforts.















Julia from our Zanzibar officer recently celebrated her birthday there and got unbelievable surprises & treatment. Her villa was decorated with flowers just everywhere, a bottle of champagne was waiting for her, and the staff had even written a special postcard with the best wishes.

But the most exciting thing was waiting on a terrace – a huge inscription on the sand made out of fresh flowers – Happy Birthday! Cake, candles, confetti & songs – lots of love & positive emotions they put into this special occasion.
