About Coral Rock

Coral Rock has been described as the jewel of Jambiani. Built atop an ancient coral rock that juts out into the ocean and flanked by two striking beaches, the hotel's exquisite location is unrivalled. The hotel offers the ideal tropical island holiday, as guests often spend hours staring out at the water, mesmerized at how the changing of the tides morphs through hundreds of shades of blue and turquoise.

Coral Rock is a small and intimate hotel located within the town of Jambiani, offering 14 Swahili-style deluxe bungalows. All our rooms offer Zanzibar-style beds, en-suite bathrooms with European toilets, bar fridges, wardrobes, and air-conditioning. All units boast patios and superb views of the sea. There is also a restaurant and bar on site that provides lovely seafood and African fusion cuisine. Whether in the restaurant, bar or any room in the hotel, visitors can experience the stunning beauty of these same sea views. The bar also comes equipped with satellite TV and Wi-Fi access. In addition, guests can take a dip in the gorgeous swimming pool while looking out over the crystal clear sea water.

Guests can book village culture and ocean tours, but will delight in the free use of equipment such as kayaks, wind surfers, snorkel equipment, and bicycles. The hotel offers cool and relaxing accommodation, without the frills of commercial getaway options.

Beach: Located directly on the beach.
