Wind Season.
The East coast is known for its wind seasons. The wind picks up from around June to mid October and January to March. Like all seasons, towards the beginning and the end of these seasons you are not guaranteed much wind.
This wind season has brought a new and elegant sport to the east coast; Kite Surfing.

Zanzibar Culture.
Many people ask what is the appropriate dress code:
Bikinis are permitted on the beaches. Topless is not permitted on the beaches nor in the hotel. While walking in the villages one can wear reasonable length shorts or skirts and sleeveless shirts. In Stone town it is best to wear long pants and a top that is not showing cleavage but sleeveless is permitted.

During Ramadhan it is best to wear long pants and a top that covers chest and shoulders. It is a sign of disrespect if you eat, drink or smoke during the day. Smoking is not permitted during the full time of Ramadhan, (out of respect it is best to smoke away from one practicing).

Hibiscus Restaurant – Kindly cover yourselves when coming from the beach or the pool and not walk in the restaurant in your bathing suit.

Power and water supply
Power and water supply are challenges on Zanzibar. Cristal Resort has a generator that can supply most of the electrical devices and appliances. The power supplied by the government is not very stable leading to many power surges. 240 watts is what is used and the the plugs the UK ones with 3 pins.

Paje Village has its own water tank that supplies water to the village during the daytime only (when it’s not out of service as it is many times) and during night time the hotel supplies water from its own well, which depends on the ocean’s tide. Pressure pumps are used to supply the rooms and common areas. Drinking bottled water on Zanzibar is recommended.

Cristal Resort offers 2 outdoor swimming pools and a children’s pool.

Complimentary self-parking and valet parking are available on site.
