There are 4 restaurants. The Shibe, which is the main restaurant, offers many choices at breakfast including a full English menu with waffles, pancakes and omelets. There is a reasonably priced Indian restaurant, Sher-e-Punjab, which is great for vegetarian food and the Suli Suli grill for seafood. La Pergola serves pizza, pasta and other Italian dishes. The Vunja Joto serves ice-cream. Restaurants are open 24 hours and snacks are provided all throughout the day.
There are two swim-up bars in the pool and the Msafiri Bar in the resort.
3 large swimming pools which meander through the grounds, two of which are connected by a “river”. Pools have warm water and are kept nicely clean. There are two shallow pools for kids at the hotel. Fresh towels are provided daily.
Specialty acts on alternate acts for an hour each evening include Masai dancers and snake charmers. Other wise, hotel entertainment is less interesting.
Things to Enjoy
Tennis, table tennis, squash in air-conditioned courts, diving including a school for classes, windsurfing, reef and deep-sea fishing, beach and water volleyball, a gym with jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath, hot and cold plunge pools and massage treatments. The sunset cruise is recommended. After the cruise is over, guests are taken to a floating seafood restaurant where lobster, crab, giant prawns, calamari and fish are served on huge platters.
The meandering pools are a lovely feature. The water feature is designed such that it starts from inside the Travellers Beach Hotel entrance all the way to the beachfront. The large pool area creates lots of room for relaxing and sunbathing. Friendly staff and good variety of food choices. There is a kid’s club.
Very good selection of food with a varied menu. At the buffet restaurant, guests get different types of soups every day, a choice of 3 or 4 different main courses and a specialty meat carved or prepared on request. There is a selection of desserts and fresh fruit such as melon, mango and passion fruit.
Generally, Travellers Beach offers friendly service and good value for the money.
Rooms are a little dated. Not a whole lot of entertainment during the daytime. All-inclusive guests have to pay when they wish to go to other restaurants.
