Translating as beautiful in Swahili, "Zuri” Zanzibar is a stunning eco-retreat with an authentic African feel.
This luxury resort opened in 2018 and it is constructed using sustainable materials, such as Tanzanian teak, eucalyptus and nyasi grass thatch, as such it blends in beautifully with the natural surroundings.
Its cluster of 55 bungalows, suites and villas are nestled among tropical gardens, resembling a traditional African village, and the stylish rooms feature African craftsmanship with wooden furniture made from old dhows (local fishing boats), handcrafted carved doors and beaded curtains made by local artisans.
Located in Kendwa Village, just over 50km from Stone Town and its international airport, Zuri Zanzibar has a prime location on Zanzibar’s northwest coast. The resort’s private beach is set within in a large lagoon and is unaffected by the tides meaning that guests can swim in the crystal clear, calm waters all day, and the gorgeous palm-fringed beach is west-facing making it one of the best places on the island to enjoy spectacular sunsets!
At this tranquil, tropical paradise there’s an emphasis on well-being and relaxation.
There are many activities to enjoy during your stay; enjoy a massage at the luxurious spa, take a private yoga class at sunrise or sunset, sunbathe on the white sandy beach with tall palm trees gently swaying above you, swim in the impressive 32 metre infinity pool whilst taking in the incredible views of the Indian Ocean, take a stroll through the lush gardens, or head to the private “pods” in the Spice Garden, which covers a quarter of Zuri Zanzibar’s land, to meditate or simply relax.
