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.
Essque Zalu

Changing the definition of luxury for a generation of conscientious travellers.

The resort is stylish and immaculate throughout with the lush mature tropical gardens around the rooms and suites providing a wonderful environment in which to relax. We stayed in an Ocean Front suite and the view was beautiful, with the beach and sea just metres away. The villas are huge, perfect for families and large groups wanting plenty of space to relax and looking for a real 'home away from home'.

Neptune Pwani Zanzibar

Considered to be the top choice in its category.

The bright pink, purple and white flowers accent the beautifully manicured lawns between the public areas and pathways. The rooms are spacious and feature traditional wooden furniture though they have air-conditioning, telephones and televisions as standard.

Sunshine Hotel

Clean, slick and stylish in a great location.

With just 15 Suites, Sunshine undoubtedly has a boutique feel and one can’t help but feel part of the natural habitat at Matemwe. This location is really special in Zanzibar as the beaches are worked as they have been for centuries before; folding seaweed, fishing and collecting tasty treats the tide leaves behind on its journey out.

La Gemma dell Est
A large all inclusive popular with Italian package holiday makers.

This is a comfortable large boutique property which does lose the personal touches common in the smaller guest houses but overall represents some of the best accommodation on the island.

La Gemma dell Est is well suited to those who prefer to arrive and relax or have people in the party that will need entertaining. Everything is on site and the all-inclusive price plan means you don’t have to worry about running up a bar bill.
