We had a great stay at Villa Bahati, and would highly recommend it to anyone considering traveling to Zanzibar.
The villa is on Jambiani, a quieter part of the island with beautiful beaches, so ideal if you want a little more privacy or to get away from more touristy areas. The village has a few shops and nice restaurants which offer enough variety, but don't expect fully-stocked supermarkets or a full range of eateries.
The villa is well-equipped with all the essentials (be aware that wifi is not anywhere nearby), and rooms are clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Breakfast is simple (fruit, bread, pastry + boiled egg / omelet) and freshly prepared at a time of your choosing. The view is absolutely wonderful :)
The hosts were flexible (e.g. we were able to leave luggage until after check-out time) and very helpful (e.g. organizing a driver to take us to Jozani national park for the day). This also characterizes the overall experience: keep in mind that this is a family run B&B, so don't expect 5-star hotel routine but rather warm hospitality and service with a personal touch. Overall a very enjoyable stay and fantastic experience in Zanzibar!
