My brother and I visited several hotels around Zanzibar and Z Hotel was by far the nicest. The location was terrific. Unlike many of the other resourts, the beach at the Z did not disappear at high tide, and unlike the east side of the island, there were not strong winds. The hotel itself was fantastic. It was new, stylish,...

As a couple who travel frequently and seldom return to a place, it was a novelty for us to return to a hotel we had stayed in previously (as I had sworn my husband to a return visit before I would leave the first time!) - we were not disappointed. The hotel is just perfect - small but having all...

Wonderful hotel on a beautiful beach. Couldn't have been cleaner. The food was excellent. Fresh flowers on your bed when the room is made up. Lovely landscaping.
