About Zuri Zanzibar

Zanzibar is amongst the world’s most exotic island destinations and Zuri Zanzibar is one of the island’s very best luxury resorts. Peppered with palm trees and bursting with lush tropical vegetation, this characterful beachfront resort brings a rustic African flavour to 5-star beachfront luxury. Always striving to operate sustainably, the property was the first hotel in the world to be awarded the EarthCheck’s Sustainable Design Golf Certification. Celebrating Zanzibar’s rich cultural heritage, the 56 bungalows, suites and villas which comprise the resort’s accommodation offering meld modernity with tradition, capped with thatched roofs and with interiors bedecked with traditional Zanzibari and African designs. Artisanal artwork, luxurious amenities and seamless transition between indoors and out are all part and parcel when staying in any of these spacious guestrooms. The cuisine too draws on the island’s eclectic cultural tapestry, with spice-rich flavours hailing from the places far and wide that influenced Zanzibar’s distinct culinary identity, including Europe, Africa, India and the Middle East. On top of this smorgasbord of flavour, you can feast on sumptuous seafood caught fresh from the Indian Ocean plus a selection of tropical cocktails that help form a quintessential island getaway. Embrace the peaceful coastal surrounds with a range of therapeutic experiences, from yoga and meditation sessions to fragrant walks through the resort’s own Spice Garden. At MAUA Wellness by Healing Earth, you can unwind in one of three treatment rooms or take it easy on the Jacuzzi deck. When it comes to activities, the resort strives to provide its guests with experiences that highlight Zanzibar’s cultural essence and awe-inspiring nature. Set sail across the turquoise waters aboard a traditional dhow boat, snorkel around kaleidoscopic coral reefs brimming with marine life or head to the capital to explore the old city of Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site steeped in history and diverse culture.
