We stayed in Zanzi Resort in April with our two children. The hotel is beautiful, well kept, quiet and high class. The Eco room was large and suitable for a family of four. The hotel was very tranquil and there was a feeling of privacy and peace. The staff is very congenial and polite, and the service impeccable. The food...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 November 2016

Our full week vacation during the 2nd week in October was divine. After reading so many excellent reviews we had high expectations, and they were all met and even exceeded. Trying not to repeat what has been already written in other reviews about the place itself, this is the kind of refuge/resort/secrecy where you get literally spoiled, without visible limits....

If you are looking for peace and relaxation in a tropical beautiful plant is right here. A fantastically beautiful area with a round service the leaves nothing to be desired. More nature and beauty are not possible! Thank you for a fantastic 2 weeks holiday.

We stayed in a luxury villa with private pool for 5 days in February 2017. The room was spacious and clean. The garden is beautiful and very well taken care off. The food was excellent. There is always one vegetarian option on the dinner menu and if it doesn't suit you, you can always ask for something else. All the...

Booking this resort was the best decision we made. Going to Zanzibar was a last minute idea for my hubby and me. We cannot review this resort enough, starting from their impeccable customer service to the outstanding location! A very private place filled with lush greenery and a beautiful beach! We had booked the Eco Villa for our stay! Each...

The place is a very quiet place, offering a lot of privacy. Beautifully kept with lot of green trees. Everything is available inside the resort and you will need to leave only if you want to visit any historical place like Stone Town or Jozani forest. The manager, Chef and resort personal are very very helpful and provide the best...

My boyfriend and I spent there only 1 night in February but it was one of the best experiences ever! The location (however on the rocky shore) is absolutely unique: you are surrounded by beautiful tropical garden, you have the feeling you are alone there! And the jetty - despite tides you can always swim in the ocean. Of course...

We can really recommend Zanzibar resort as it is very similar to a small paradise. We enjoyed the food at the restaurant every day - and the menu at evening changed all the time, so the quality was excellent, both the dinner and service. The house we stayed at was a family house and was placed very private in the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Zanzi Resort is an elegant and charming private hotel situated on the shore of the Indian Ocean, 20 km from the historic town of Stone Town and 25 minutes from the international airport. Seven large and luxurious villas, offering an intimate environment, are perfectly equipped and finished with an artistic touch, as is the restaurant and SPA. The outside of each villa features a large private pool with a counter current/ hydrotherapy element, patio, shower, gazebo draped in a mosquito net, a lush tropical garden and private path leading to a secluded beach on the Ocean. ZanziResort's African Eco Villas are made of local materials like wood and clay. They are designed in african spirit with all luxury amenities. Villas have one big room and bathroom. Outside each villas has relax area. Close to those villas there is a big swimming pool. A personal butler takes care of our guests and fulfills their needs. The resort, spreading over six hectares of astonishing garden, along with its in-house restaurant and SPA, was designed in a romantic style, ensuring a sense of profound intimacy. Our refined and carefully chosen menu will satisfy the most demanding palates. Guests can have their breakfast, lunch or dinner either in the restaurant, in the privacy of their villas or on the beach. We offer international cuisine, fresh fish and seafood, all with organic vegetables and spices picked from our own Eco-plantation. A coral reef lies 80 metres from the shore. We offer an interesting package of sports activities and island excursions. ... more   less
