Zi Villa - 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 team below:

There is no doubt Zi Villa is one of Zanzibar’s most luxurious private villa options. It also has the advantage of occupancy levels of 14 maximum, which is difficult to find anywhere else and makes it ideal for large groups. Expect a personal and flexible service from the staff, high standards of furnishings, AC and lots of mod cons. You also benefit from direct beach access, which is not as common as you would expect on Zanzibar, with many hotels being on raised coral cliffs.
Zi Villa is very unique and popular, booking well in advance for peak dates is advisable.
