The Z Hotel

A stylish hotel in a great location. Perfect for exploring the bars, restaurants and culture of Nungwi.

The Ocean Front Cottages and Roof Top Suites in particular offer spectacular views, the hotel design is clean and coherent throughout. The beach here is lovely, but seldom deserted, as this is one of the busiest areas of Zanzibar. Do not come here expecting a peaceful and quiet beach destination, come here for quality modern accommodation and the vibrant local culture.
 

In the heart of Nungwi, Zanzibar’s second largest settlement after the bustling west coast Stone Town, The Z Hotel is the brightly feathered peacock flashing its eyes for all to see. It’s contemporary, funky, youthful and fun which is a great attraction for all those looking to experience Zanzibari life in a community where locals and guests to the island live side by side and are a part of one another’s day-to-day life.

The Z Hotel - The Details

While the beach front at Nungwi is lined with hotels, lodges and guest houses, the locals live in the windy narrow makeshift streets behind. There are local shops for any essentials and tourist shops to explore as well as beach shack stalls full of wonderful art and crafts.

The atmosphere at The Z Hotel is a buoyant one and there are always new friends to be made, cocktails to be sampled in the Cinnamon Bar and indulgent massages to be taken in the spa.

For those seeking the deserted powder white sand beaches that stretch on for miles (found on the east Coast) we often recommend a few nights at the Z hotel as it is the perfect destination, if not ‘the destination’ in Nungwi and great to experience after a week or so of chilling out. Naturally, The Z is also perfect for many couples, single travellers and groups of friends who prefer to be in the buzz of Nungwi with restaurants and bars lining the coast.

Activities

Diving, Mnazi Mini Spa, water sports, deep sea fishing, kite surfing and sun set cruises.

Excursions

Arranged through onsite tour company Mrembo tours and include all the mains sights and sounds of the island – Stone Town, Jozani Forest, Spice Tours, Prison Island, Kizimkazi, Mnarani Turtle Sanctuary and Zala Park.

Community & Conservation

The Z Hotel trains and employs Zanzibari staff throughout all areas of hospitality and has its own staff quarters at the rear of the hotel. Last year they funded the local school extension and hotel director, Keith Horan was thanked in a colourful ceremony by Vice President of Tanzania, Mohamed Bilal. The Z hotel continues to work with community projects and are all about their presence as a force for good in Nungwi and beyond.



 


The Z Hotel - Opinions and Reviews

Unlike many operators we not only visit all the hotels we offer regularly but we also stay in them. Please find a few hints, tips and opinions from our staff:

 

We have worked with the Z Hotel since they opened in 2008 and have seen the property go from strength to strength. With consistently great feedback from our guests and online they are now considered to be the top choice in Nungwi area.

The standard rooms are not the largest on the island, as space is a premium in this enviable location, but are stylish and modern with everything you need. All face the ocean although you would need to be on the 1st floor to appreciate the view. If you are looking for a little more space the roof top suites and Ocean cottages are considerably larger, equally stylish, and also enjoy awesome views out over the beach and the ocean beyond. Or if budget allows, and you are looking for a treat, try the 100sqm Z Suite…. At the top of the building, fully equipped with a Cocktail Bar and a double bath tub.

Stay here if you are looking for a stylish comfortable hotel in a vibrant area with plenty of beach life, avoid if you are looking for cast away romance.

Still not sure? Everyone of our team has visited the Z Hotel on several occasions; please give us a call for honest, impartial advice.
