Hotel's Favourite
We were lucky to get an upgrade to the 'rooftop suite'. It had everything and more. We had two balconies: one with sunbeds + outdoor shower, and one that was covered and had a hammock + dining table. The room had a lot of space and the bathroom was great. Breakfast at the hotel was very good with a mix of a la carte and buffet. Lunch/dinner at the Cinnamon Restaurant was good, not great, but the staff were very kind. They offered late-night cinema (Topgun) which was an amazing experience. Overall it was a very nice stay!

We came to the restaurant ‘The rooftop lounge’ at the Z hotel Zanzibar. Sam, one of the waiters, was always very attentive and supportive. In fact, every member of the staff has been really friendly! Foods and drink were perfect! Nice environment and music! I strongly recommend you to come here.

We went to the rooftop of the Z hotel almost every evening we spent in nungwi. The staff are super friendly especially Sam who always had a smile for all the customers. The Z hotel also offers yoga clases on a very nice rooftop looking at the sunset (evening class). I would also recommend visiting the Sexy fish restaurant, everything was delicious!!!!!
