STV Super Specials
What do these rates mean?

* STV Super Specials are STV's usual SUPER Discounted Special rates, GENUINELY and STRICTLY ONLY available for TRAVEL INDUSTRY Employees resident globally, and are classified as an Employee Benefit. (Available to Airline, Travel Agent, Tour Operator, ATC & Airport Handling Agent Employees)

* You must be a Travel Industry Employee and you must be registered with STV (Free) to be able to book our STV Super Special rates.

* Minimum one Travel Industry Employee per room. You are required to present your I.D. / proof of employment on check-in.

* There is no limit to the number of bookings per year you can book (unless stated otherwise)

* Friends and Family cannot book STV Super Special Rates. They can accompany you but must stay in the same room as you (some hotels permit an extra room for Friends & Family and if so this will be stated on the hotel page, but you must always be included in the booking and be staying at the hotel).

* PAYMENT & CANCELLATION: With STV Super Special rates you only need to pay a very small refundable deposit within 14 days of making your booking, or right away if travelling short notice, and the main balance of the booking is paid direct to the hotel, usually on check-in. It is FREE to cancel or amend dates for your booking, often right up to and including the day of check-in, making these rates great for standby travelers (see each hotels payment & cancellation terms). When you make a booking request with STV Super Special rates and it is confirmed, you do not need to go ahead with the booking and can cancel immediately without paying a deposit if you wish.

* Remember STV Super Special Rates are only available for Airline & Travel Industry Employees as an employee benefit and are the lowest rates you will ever find.


* True Airline & Travel Industry Employee rates are known as ON REQUEST. This means you choose your hotel and Super Special rate and submit your booking request through our website and you will receive a response back from the hotel as soon as possible. Because the rate is so highly discounted, the hotel 1st needs to check if they have enough spare rooms to agree to let you pay these exclusive Travel Industry Employee rates. The hotels will often reply to you the same day but be prepared to wait up to 24-48 hours ~ It's worth it!

* BEWARE of other Interline/Agency companies telling you they offer Genuine Airline & Travel Industry Employee rates with 'immediate confirmation'! This is simply not true, and you are being misled. Hotels need to manually check their availability for Genuine Travel Industry employee rates and this can take 1-2 days. This is why they are known as ON REQUEST rates.

* BEWARE. If other companies tell you your Friends and Family can use the same rates as you unaccompanied, you know they are not genuine Travel Industry Rates! No hotels allow Friends & Families to book genuine Airline & Travel Agency Employee rates unaccompanied, so they are simply selling you rates that are also available to the general public through other channels.

STV have different rates available to Friends and Family to enjoy unaccompanied, they are called STV Direct rates. Because we source such rates in bulk and are the only truly global client and leading company selling holidays to Airline and Travel Agency Employees and their Friends and Family (we have served travel industry employees resident in over 200 countries ~ almost every single country on the planet), we always have the lowest STV Direct rates available anywhere. See STV Direct for these great deals for you and your Family.

Paradise Defined


About the Resort

The beach in front of LUX* Marijani, Pwani Mchangani, is paradise defined: powdery white sand, swaying coconut palms, and the blue-green waters of the Zanzibar archipelago. At low tide, a sandbank emerges–the perfect spot for a sun salutation. When the tides rise, the lagoon becomes the dreamiest swimming pool.
LUX* Marijani's varied and creative dining experiences cater to all palates.


Think breakfast on a sandbank with your toes in the water and fabulous barbecue dinners on the beach. There’s a lot to explore out here too. Tour a woodwork shop, visit a spice plantation, or wander through the labyrinthine streets of Stonetown, a UNESCO World Heritage site.



Grand LUX* Suites
Set right on the beach facing the blue-green lagoon, the Grand LUX* Suite is as grand as it gets. The luxurious hideaway features a bedroom with a pink-coral outdoor tropical shower, a standalone bathtub and shower, a kitchen that opens onto a living room, and a separate bathroom. The outdoor sunken lounge and the private swimming pool on the beach.

Beachfront Deluxe Rooms
Located right on the beach, our Deluxe Rooms are suffused with shades of white with brass and wood accents, an ode to the island’s Arabic influence. Each room has a King-size or Twin beds, a spacious bathroom with a rainshower and an intimate terrace facing our gorgeous shores.


Beachfront Executive Rooms
The Beachfront Executive Rooms are suited for couples in search of a beach hideaway and a view of the sugar-white sand beach and blue-green lagoon. Imbued in shades of white with gorgeous locally crafted terrazzo floors. These rooms have a King-size bed, a gorgeous tiled bathroom with a standalone bathtub and a separate rainshower. Unwind on your terrace facing the sea.

Activities & Amenities

The Beach
This is beachside living at its best. Rise early to catch a glimpse of the seaweed mamas, ankle-deep in the warm waters, or a traditional dhow sailing past. Take a jog along the sandy shores, or just soak up the Zanzibari sun.

Forest Bathing
Keep an eye open for our indigenous forest, the perfect place to get into ‘Forest bathing’, the Japanese practice of shinrin-yoku backed by science. Unplug from technology and slip into the present moment.

Sandbank Yoga
Take your yoga practice off the mat and onto a sandbank, which only emerges at low tide. At sunrise you can practice Tree Pose while watching the seaweed mamas harvest their bounty. 

Family Swimming Pool
Swim laps in the gigantic pool located at the heart of the resort. There is even a kids area for Little Travellers.

Extraordinary Experiences

Visit an authentic woodwork shop tucked between century-old trees and see how the hotel’s grand wooden doors were hand-carved. Visit a spice plantation and learn how spices are grown and harvested. Wander through the labyrinthine streets of Stonetown, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the LUX* way. Hop onboard a traditional sailing dhow to the shallows of Mnemba Island, famed for its dive sites. 

Pop Ups & Surprises 

Cinema Paradiso
LUX* Marijani regularly hosts outdoor cinema nights on the beach or in the gardens with a gorgeous setup (and snacks of course!). Cinema Paradiso can also be made private for a family movie night.

Tree of Wishes
Look out for a majestic Tree of Wishes. Here’s what to do: Think of something you want to manifest. Write it down on a piece of paper or ribbon. Tie it around a branch.

Message in a Bottle
Every day, we hide a bottle inside which is a roll of parchment containing a treasure for the person who hunts down the bottle. It could be a massage at LUX* Me Spa, a bottle of bubbly, a dinner for two…


Forodhani 'LUX*' Night Market
Inspired by Stonetown’s famous night market, the LUX* team hosts a weekly market by the sea with incredible gourmet street food, sheesha, Masai crafts, local music and dancing.​

The Beach
The Beach is the main restaurant. Located on the beach, near the pool, this day-to-night restaurant caters to all palates thanks to its variety. Their chefs cook up contemporary dishes inspired by the Zanzibari produce and bounty, which is as fresh as can be. The Beach, open from morning till late has something for everyone.

The Bar
Adjacent to the main restaurant, The Beach, The Bar serves up a menu of classic and creative drinks. Sipping a cocktail (or mocktail) is that much more enjoyable when you’re facing a shimmering lagoon. And even more so when you know the herbs came right from the resort’s herb garden.

Café LUX*
They have their very own in-house coffee brand, Café LUX*, and it just happens to be located right in the lobby (how convenient). There’s nothing like a coffee at check-in to fight jetlag after your flight. Pop by any time of the day to get your daily jolt of caffeine.

Samāa is their exquisite Levantine restaurant set right on the beach under the open sky. Coming soon.


Innovation meets craftsmanship at ICI ice cream bar, where they bring the behind-the-scenes of ice cream making to the front. The result is freshly-churned gelato, ice cream, sorbet, and granita–right in front of your eyes. Coming soon.

LUX* Me Spa

This boutique-size spa is where you will find invigorating and relaxing massages, facials, bathing and post-sun rituals, hand and foot care, waxing, and couple’s treatments.
