Zuri Zanzibar is located in Kendwa, a vast stretch of white sand spanning along the sunset-facing west coast of Zanzibar. This peaceful hotel and resort boasts one of the most unique beaches that Zanzibar has to offer. Set in a large lagoon, it allows for near perfect swimming conditions throughout the day. Zuri, meaning beautiful in Swahili, boasts a magnificent cliff backdrop, 980-feet of private beach, turquoise waters and environmentally sustainable designs. It’s no surprise this island paradise was named as such.
Zuri Zanzibar offers an array of exciting land- and water-based activities including diving lessons, snorkeling and beach games like pétanque and volleyball – all available at the water sports center. Sunset dhow cruises, fishing trips, and diving and snorkeling trips to exotic spots such as Tumbatu Island and Mnemba Atoll can also be arranged from the center. A must-visit, however, is Zuri’s very own Spice Garden. It is the perfect place for an idyllic walk, exclusive meditation sessions or an authentic Swahili cuisine cooking class.
This pristine location could easily have accommodated double the 56 villas that are available but decided against it in order to attain absolute privacy. Nestled on a west-facing slope, most of the villas enjoy direct ocean views. All of them are fitted with outdoor showers and large terraces. African-style roofing that reaches for the stars delivers an astonishing cathedral-like feeling over your bed and cannot be compared to anything you would find in a busy Western city. Perceive life from a new angle with a wonderful stay at the iconic Zuri Zanzibar.
