An absolutely awesome resort, which set out its stall from the moment we arrived and maintained the same standard of excellence throughout. A relatively short but interesting drive from the airport and an even shorter drive from Stonetown and Zanzibar City. A perfect opportunity to relax whether travelling solo, couples or a family with small children - all were present...

We stayed at the sister hotel in the north of Zanzibar, but decided to have lunch at Zanzi Resort. We, a group of 8, arrived without booking, but the staff took that in their stride and served a great lunch. The lunch menu covered various starters, pasta dishes, meat and seafood main dishes as well as desert. What an amazing...

Nice resort with 13 villas, good food and very friendly stuff and management. This spot is located in the middle of the Island and is easy to catch from the airport. The meals are very good and flexible to order. Breakfast is whenever you want- at 6 or 11 o'clock... This resort offers an amazing sunset guarantee.

It was very peaceful and being a smaller resort, it was quiet and at times we felt like we were the only people there. The service was incredible and we were well taken care of...

Seven large and luxurious villas, offering an intimate environment, are perfectly equipped and finished with an artistic touch, as is the restaurant and SPA. The outside of each villa features a large private pool with a counter current/ hydrotherapy element, patio, shower, gazebo draped in a mosquito net, a lush tropical garden and private path leading to a secluded beach on the Ocean.

Our refined and carefully chosen menu will satisfy the most demanding palates. Guests can have their breakfast, lunch or dinner either in the restaurant, in the privacy of their villas or on the beach.
