Hotel's Favourite
We spent a week in this hotel in December. We stayed in a one bedroom beach front villa, which I wholeheartedly recommend. Our first impression was that the villa was a lot more spacious and much nicer than the photos on the website suggest, a positive surprise. This hotel is luxurious like very few hotels are in the world. Personal butler, your own very pleasant swimming pool, private sunbeds, spacious garden, 24 hour operating kitchen, outstanding food. To top it all, you have an authentic beach in front of the hotel with locals collecting shellfish, fishing...etc. We could have stayed a lot more. Do not miss the trip to Mnemba Island for snorkeling. If you're a diver, diving near the hotel is also very interesting. Thanks to all the staff. There is really nothing I can fault in this hotel.

I have been to many places around the world, many luxury hotels and destinations, but White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa is definitely in my all time top 3! Great service, very polite staff, we were 30 guests and the hotel staff was around 120 people. They took care of us on every step of our journey :) We loved the quiet and private atmosphere. The food was amazing on breakfast, lunch and dinner, the chefs are masters! The villas are spacious, cleaned perfectly twice a day with all needed amenities. We had a personal butler - Elya and then another one - Margaret - both were so nice and responsive. Massages in the spa were really good and there was a private outdoor fitness :) I highly recommend the place!

It is an amazing place with beautiful garden (lots of flowers, palms (different types), indian almond tree, baobab, agave and others). Different shades od green. Specially green of mangrove, white sand, blue sky and turquoise water are creating amazing view ;) The sand on a beach is uncommonly white and soft. The view from lunch restaurant (on the beach) is very, very beautiful. When it comes to food... Cuisine is on Michelin Stars level. Good looking and so tasty. At first day manager asks you, what are your food preferences. By the way Annemie is really polite and fantastic person, everyday she comes and asks how we feel and take nice small talk. For breakfast perfectly made benedict eggs, fresh fruits ( my favourite passion fruit, lychee and others). Lunch and dinner... really nice red snapper, lobster, dorado and others ( in the different forms ex.ceviche, grilled) . But also good meat dishes and soups. Desserts are so delicious. Very good chef. They have really good sellection of wines. We have winiary, so I know what I am talking about. The service was perfect( specially thanks to Beatrice she is warm, helpful and happy person, our Butlers John and Magret(both of them are super hero and made good job). Very good welcome drink( Ginger and honey)- also to order during stay and signatured Ginger Mohito. I recommend to take ALL Inclusive meal plan. Hotel organise private trips to interesting places on the main Island and on smaller once. Nice kite spot(also for beginners ) is in a hotel. At first day you get kimono and it is truly bare foot luxury resort. Good communication form with Butler and Reception via WhatsApp(you get everyday at morning menu for lunch and dinner and you asks for everything you want ;) ) Villas are desiged in classic, simple style with decoration elements. In Villa you have bean to cup coffee machine and DVD player. We will be back :)
