We had a wonderful stay at the Z Hotel in Nungwi. The rooms were well furnished and cleaned daily. The pool area was immaculate and the close proximity to the ocean made the scenery that much better. The wait staff Sam, Ayoub and Salama were attentive and professional. And the food at both Cinnamon and Sexy Fish restaurants was delectable. Only thing I’d improve is the quality of the coffee. Stay here the next time you visit Nungwi.

I found the staff to be incredibly accommodating and full of energy for their jobs. Ismael is a professional to work with - Hafsa is a massage you cannot pass up and Sam is the man on the rooftop! The vibe at the Z is really cool and you can relax knowing they will give you all the right tips to maximize your stay.

We had a great time watching the sunset and having dessert! We ordered the date pudding and ice cream. Hamad was very friendly as well! They offered us free peanuts and Wi-Fi as well! Weather, atmosphere, and music was over the top!

Amazing rooftop bar! Fantastic service and friendly sevrers. Delicious cocktails - my favourite was the "dawn of zanzibar". They also have a DJ for cocktail hour playing killer music. Honestly the best spot we found in Zanzibar.

Sam, Happy, Hafsa, and Emiliana were a few of the staff that made our trip really special. The hotel manager also made things easy for us but helping to book transfers to and from the airport ahead of time. The spa staff ensured we had the most relaxing stay and the restaurant staff kept good conversation between sunset and sunrise. We did have one snafu in our journey, the cottage we booked for 4 night was only available for two due to a ‘construction emergency’. Pro - we got to try both the roof top room and the cottage. Con - the cottage was far superior and we felt like we missed out on our first two days. All in all, the staff were helpful, the grounds and rooms clean, nice AC, cold drinks and good times. Although the journey to the Z hotel may be long and bumpy, it’s worth it.
