Zuri Zanzibar

Zanzibar's newest and most exciting adult property

Welcome to Zanzibar's newest and arguably already best hotel. Situated on a beach in the north of Zanzibar the unique aspect of its position on Kendwa beach, which is the only non-tidal beach on Zanzibar means you can swim all day in the tranquil, clear blue Indian Ocean. This gives the area a real feel of the Maldives, Mauritius and Seychelles. 

The ethos of the hotel is relaxation and well being, Zuri Zanzibar offers its guests yoga and personalised wellness classes, a wonderful infinity pool, gym as well as offering plenty of places to fully unwind and relax in a property that is authentic to Zanzibar. For those who relax by being active there is an array of activities especially water sports including scuba diving, snorkelling, surfing, dhow boat cruises or just enjoy a refreshing swim. If you want to learn about the island the hotel offer tours of the locals spice plantations and also Stone Town which is the birth place of Freddie Mercury.

Zuri Zanzibar has three types of accommodation with 55 rooms in total, these include bungalows, suites and villas allowing you to choose the best accommodation to suit your needs during your stay. All the rooms offer great views either of the relaxing gardens or of the Indian Ocean. As well as incredible accommodation Zuri Zanzibar has 3 restaurants, 4 bars and a 32 metre infinity pool within the resort so there is no need to leave the grounds if you do not want to.

This is the biggest launch Zanzibar has seen for many years and one that we feel is worth shouting about.
