We arrived in Zanzibar and hired a driver to take us to the North for our stay at Z hotel. It was a beautiful ride to the North and we were blown away by this hotel. When we arrived around 6pm, we were greeted by the most spectacular sunset. We could not help but drop our things and go stand...

We stayed at the Z Hotel for our 1 year wedding anniversary, and it was excellent! The staff were so friendly, kind and helpful. The Hotel was fantastic, the pool is GORGEOUS and the rooms are cozy and clean. The Hotel offers transport to and from the airport and the village of Nungwi is friendly and cozy. Can't wait until...

I've visited Z hotel in Nungwi twice now and can not recommend it enough. It is a lovely boutique hotel in an amazing location with a beautiful rooftop bar and infinity pool. I love that this is not a secluded resort and that you get a taste of the vibrancy of the local culture. Situated between two villages you'll see...

Built on the beach but almost like a small city quarter with pool, restaurants, bar, cafe and lots of greenery. Very friendly staff. Good breakfast and good food. Also connected to 2 other nearby hotels so you can walk between them without leaving.

Really cute boutique hotel on the absolute best part on Nungwi beach. Also the best cocktails. I'd give the in house restaurants a miss - bit overpriced for what it is. However, this doesn't deter from the experience as it is a 1 min walk to the nearest beach restaurant. Grab a couple of cocktails in the happy hour and...

We popped across to the Z Hotel's rooftop bar for sundowners one evening and really enjoyed life on the beds overlooking the beach and the evening sky. Later we had a wonderful candlelit dinner on the beach (it was bbq buffet evening) and the food, staff and atmosphere were all great. Can highly recommend a visit if you're not staying...

I had a wonderful 4 nights at the Z Hotel in Zanzibar after my safari. The accommodations were by far the best in Nungwi. Perfect location in the center of the beach. Close walk to nearby resturants, turtle sanctuary, and many activities. An hour and a half or so from Stone Town. You can easily take a cab there. The...

Overall an amazing property in a paradise location. Not many criticisms, more points for improvement. We went here to dive and relax and it was amazing for both. Could be improved upon.... No seating areas during day (Decked area could have been used for this purpose which was closed after breakfast) NO ACCESS TO CASH OTHER THAN TRIP TO STONETOWN...

Absolutely an amazing boutique hotel in Nungwi. The service was superb. Rooms were very clean, spectacular. Cocktails were the best that i have tested. The pool bar is amazing! The food very tasty! Downfall just wall papers in the rooms which are facing the swimming pool..But overall impressive.

After staying a night in Stonetown we (4 friends) arrived at the Z Hotel in Nungwi and my week of sea, sun, and total relaxation began. The hotel is if not the best, one of the best hotels in Nungwi and is definitely located at the best spot in Nungwi as it is not much affected by the tide. Every...
