‘Hotel near to London for a Special Wedding Anniversary’
Far and away the best present to give and to receive on your wedding anniversary is the gift of time to spend with just each other. What you choose to do (or not to do!) with that time is entirely up to you, but if you come to The Zanzibar Hotel, in Hastings the world is quite literally your oyster.
Within a couple of hours of London and only an hour from Brighton, the boutique hotel is situated within a stone’s throw of the water’s edge on the seafront in Hastings. We have a wonderful champagne package and rooms with extremely well appointed bathrooms to make your occasion one to remember.
Some of our Wedding Anniversary recommendations:
You could choose to spend your anniversary walking along our beautiful Sussex beaches as the sun sets. You could spend it having cocktails, or ordering the same champagne you had on your honeymoon, on the terrace of our gorgeous restaurant (Pier Nine). If you’re feeling extra indulgent, we suggest you opt for an in-room couple’s massage by our highly qualified therapist. It’s the best way to wind –down and the ideal medicine and cure for the distance that modern day life tends to put between people these days.
If it's your Ruby wedding anniversary come and wander through the streets of Hastings Old Town, browsing in the antique shops to find something special to take home as a memento of your stay with us and as a reminder of your special occasion to celebrate the years together.
For a Golden wedding anniversary we recommend our 'hotel anniversary champagne package'! Come and visit the many fantastic local galleries. It will almost feel like the West Bank of Paris (ok, not quite, but almost!). If your idea of romance is a bit more like an 80’s pop video you could spend your special occasion playing crazy golf on the seafront, followed by an ice-cream Sunday at Di Pola’s Italian ice cream shop (very retro) or The Pelican American Diner in Hastings Old Town.
If you met at a gig all those years ago then why not go to one of Hastings’ many brilliant live music venues to celebrate your ‘silver wedding anniversary’ by dancing into the wee small hours. If your first ever date was a trip to the movies, we recommend you check out The Electric Palace art-house cinema, again in Hastings Old Town.
For foodies of all ages, we recommend you head to the fishing huts to shuck a couple of oysters, before heading to our Pier Nine restaurant for a romantic dinner (with no cab ride home, just a short walk upstairs!).
If you enjoy walking, the sand dunes of Camber Sands are a short drive away. Bring your walking boots in the Winter or your flip flops in the Summer. The tide goes out to reveal mile upon mile of golden sand and if you’re lucky, you may even be able to celebrate by going horse riding along the beach! If you’re a couple of history buffs then Battle is the perfect place to make your anniversary a memorable one together.
If your idea of heaven is simply curling up together with no interruptions, and you want somewhere really special to celebrate 50 years together, then simply select a DVD from our library, order up some room service and pop the ‘do not disturb’ sign on the door.
In the end we all know it’s happiness from one day to the next that counts, and it’s important to mark the special occasions with a high points if possible. The Zanzibar is a Boutique Hotel for a special occasion near to London. Happy Anniversary! We look forward to seeing you soon.
