If you want to experience peace and tranquillity but also have the occasional tug for activity, the services and dazzling beaches of Zuri are for you. Located in the northwestern shores of Unguja, approximately 50km away from the famous Stone Town, this little paradise is a modern take on Tanzanian hospitality.
They offer rooms in bungalows, suites and villas which are designed to incorporate both contemporary and traditional styles. It has 3 restaurants, 4 bars, a yoga studio, a swimming pool and DVD and book library. They also offer a wide range of activities including cooking classes and an outdoor “wild fitness” gym. As you can tell, they go out of their way to cater to all your needs and they do it with style. Zuri means beautiful in Swahili and this slice of bliss stays true to its name.
“I loved Zuni for its serene and tranquil atmosphere, a true escape. With its beautiful beaches and tastefully decorated rooms, the views from sunrise to sunset have you wanting to take it all in with all your senses and feeling like you might never leave.”

Zuri exceeded most of my expectations (except for one which I’ll get to later). I’d seen pictures of the resort but was still not quite sure what to expect as I actually booked the property far in advance before there was much information available about it. The hotel is brand new, and just recently celebrated their 1 year anniversary. The design of the entire resort is truly breathtaking. I travel quite a bit and have stayed at a number of 5 star hotels and I think Zuri is probably one of, if not the most, beautiful one experienced in a while.
Being in the hospitality industry I have always a critical eye on hotels I stay. This hotel is amazing, service, food, location, quality of the rooms, decoration, staff … and more. Thanks to the zuri team, our stay is still amazing as we are still there in the room 72 :-))) we will come back for sure. The best hotel in Zanzibar from far !
Stayed in a Zuri suite which was stunning with good amenities and plenty of space. Room was well serviced and kept immaculately clean throughout our five night stay. Secluded decking and the hammock brought relaxation to a whole new level.Breakfast was good in Upendo (main restaurant) but would strongly recommend a la carte breakfast at Maisha overlooking the beach, especially the smoothie’s. Lunch was a good.
