This trip is made up of 8 days of beach, sun, touring and diving some of the most beautiful sights Africa has to offer.
WHERE WILL WE BE STAYING:
My Blue Hotel is situated in the splendid scenario of Nungwi, famous for its sunsets and for its sea. It is about 55 km far from the Stone Town airport and is easily accessible in about 60 minutes transfer. The Hotel reasserts the unmistakeable “sophisticated simplicity” of the famous Mosquito Blue Hotels and was built respecting the environment it is surrounded by to guarantee an excellent service. The island is developed in longitudinal manner and embraces an elegant and original tone to allow for a relaxing and peaceful vacation. As you get closer and closer to the equipped beach, you are overwhelmingly stunned by the many enchanting different shades of blues of the Indian Ocean and of the splendid white and fine sand, admiring a wonderful bay protected by a frame of rocks. The hotel is overlooking a calm and crystal clear sea that, unlike the rest of the island, is rarely interested in the phenomenon of the high tides.
Every room has a private small terrace or a private balcony facing a beautiful tropical garden including coconut palms and banana trees. The rooms are furnished in a boutique like decor and is equipped with mosquito net, wardrobe, mirror, desk, luggage holder, air conditioning, telephone, digital safe, LCD 33” television with international channels, minibar, hair dryer, make up mirror and iron (on request).
