Zuri Zanzibar

Hot-foot it to Zuri Zanzibar for a boutique Indian Ocean getaway, where Swahili culture meets pearlescent sands and decadent guestrooms, five-star facilities and warm, friendly service.

Zuri Zanzibar

Zuri – which means ‘beautiful’ in Swahili – lives up to its name as one of the most stunning resorts anywhere in Zanzibar.

It spreads out over 13 acres in the north of this Tanzanian island, poised on the milky-white sands of Kendwa Beach, nestled between tropical trees and shrubs.

In fact, Zuri Zanzibar was dreamt up as a sustainable beach hotel surrounded by gorgeous, exotic gardens, interspersed with buildings that respect the environment, earning the property an EarthCheck Sustainable Design Gold Award. Eco-friendly credentials include providing freshwater via Zuri wells and treatment plant; reusing water for irrigation; opting for UV lamps to reduce chemical levels in the infinity pool; and the instalment of Evening Breeze air-conditioning, which uses 75% less energy than traditional systems.

What’s more, Zuri Zanzibar is engaged with local projects through the Zuri Giving initiative, so much of the décor and products you see here have come from programmes to help the community. It all makes for an authentic, culturally rich backdrop that exudes a real sense of place, yet guests are equally treated to luxuries including spacious Bungalows, Suites or Villas tucked amidst the gardens in standalone buildings, adding to their sense of privacy. Picture hammocks strung up on the terrace, outdoor showers, beds sheathed with mosquito nets and elegant bathrooms with twin sinks.

To top it all off, Zuri Zanzibar ensures that every palate is catered for with three excellent restaurants offering a wealth of global cuisines, and there are plenty of drinking dens here too. Visitors can work it all off by heading out on a diving or snorkelling excursion to Mnemba Atoll Marine Park or Tumbatu Island, enjoying some watersports or volleyball (courtesy of the hotel’s WIMBA centre), or venturing further afield on a sunset dhow cruise, among many other interesting activities. That said, there’s nothing better than reclining by the pool or on the beach with a good book, contemplating the colours of this exotic wonderland.
