Twelve spacious, artistically designed villas and bungalows offer an intimate environment. Villas feature private pools, patios, gazebos, and tropical gardens.

I went to Zanzibar with my friends and family to celebrate my birthday. Boy oh boy! I will never regret booking my stay at Zanzi Resort. The greatest hospitality I have ever experienced with my family. The friendly service from the heart. The food was delicious. The cleanliness of the rooms. The beautiful landscape. The Zanzi Resort made me feel like a queen indeed. They decorated my room with birthday wishes. I was very emotional. I booked a birthday dinner and they sang for me and made me a birthday cake. Such a very personalized experience! The Resort also took us for lunch on a dow, a beautiful experience with a packed lunch and we sailed 2 hours where we experienced the beautiful turquoise blue waters. What else can I say about Zanzi Resort, the place is out of this world. One day I will definitely go back and take my husband with me to experience what I did. Truly I am grateful to have been at Zanzi Resort. I have been talking about this place to my friends and family. I definitely recommend this beautiful and amazing place to everyone. Not a single thing will I pinpoint to be bad. My name is Chabie and my sincere thanks and gratefulness to Emeline, Nivot, Mudy, Meshack and the rest of the wonderful staff that I forgot your names. I will be back. I miss you all.

We spent a wonderful week in this beautiful Hotel. Zanzi Hotel amenities and its extremely kind staff make this place one of the best hotel where we've ever been to. Our Ocean Access villa was the best choice of ours. Own sweetwater pool, extremely clean rooms, quiet and nice place without disturbing by any other people and direct access to the Ocean. Villa has mosquito nets on all windows and sliding doors. Restaurant is also perfect with various dishes, including many fish and seafood selection. You can see in the garden many species like monkeys, bush babies, lizards, chameleons, geckos, etc. It is really nature close-up place. When the tide is low, it is worth to take a trip to Cheetah's Rock, there is a beautiful sandy beach without any people (there are only some local fishermans). Do not miss to spend a romantic dinner with sunrise on the hotel's jetty. And one important thing: As this hotel is away from busy and crowded beaches, there were no annoying beach vendors. There were no other people on the beach! The whole place is absolutely dedicated to relax. You should avoid to walk on the beach to North direction, as this is a military area. We did it, but some soldiers (they were nice and gentle) told us to not allowed to walk on the beach there. If you want to have a walking, you should make it to South direction. Top notch selections from menu and drinks: You should not miss Swahili breakfast, Limonade with Hibiscus, and seafood platter. In overall this resort was surprisingly the best place we have ever been to. We already decided to go back again one day! Thank you for these beautiful memories, Zanzi Staff!

We had a great week in Zanzi Resort. All the staff was very nice and always made sure we were good and always prompt to help on anything. The villa with the private pool with the ocean right in front of us truly worth it. The chef is also very good We also went to Prison Island and Nakupenda in the resort's boat and the resort even help us to rent a car. Wonderful!

My wife and I are celebrating our 30th anniversary this year and wanted to go somewhere amazing and special, we stayed at Zanzi Resort for 8 days! We have traveled extensively and I have to say Zanzi Resort was an experience unlike anything we have encountered - truly special and amazing!! Every single person from Mudi checking us in to the entire dining staff (you guys are the best!!!) were so friendly and kind. The Chef even made special bread and hors d'oeuvre's for my wife every day (every meal was phenomenal)!! I was amazed at all of the attention to detail, even down to the Maasai security. We were upgraded to ocean access villa and the privacy was complete, we were in a tropical private paradise!!

This resort is simply stunning. We stayed there for 5 nights in an Ocean access room (we were upgraded from ocean view to ocean access which was a lovely surprise). The villas are huge, private pool was excellent too. We loved it. Perfect place with our 6 month old baby as you can get all meals served in your room if you want at no extra cost which is fantastic for us. Highly recommend all inclusive which includes all meals (anytime) and nice range of wines etc. The best part of the resort was the beautiful people that work there- service was exceptional and people couldn’t do enough for you. Felt like family honestly, we were sad to leave. We would highly recommend this resort and look forward to visiting again.
