Located along one of Zanzibar's most alluring stretches of white sand on the northern shores of the island, Zuri Zanzibar offers a completely unique experience. The tropical beauty of Zanzibar and its warm turquoise waters lie at your feet at this stylish beachfront resort. Zuri Zanzibar is the first hotel in the world to be awarded EarthCheck’s highly esteemed Sustainable Design Gold Certification, which facilitates environmentally-, socially- and economically sustainable design and construction management. EarthCheck is the world’s leading scientific benchmarking, certification and advisory group for travel and tourism.
Zuri is quite literally off the beaten track, secreted away at the end of an unpaved road about an hour from the airport and Stone Town. Draped across a gentle beachside slope in Kendwa, the 13-acre Zuri micro-universe feeds into the dreamy, sunset-facing beach, uniquely unaffected by the massive tidal fluctuations that plague the rest of the region’s beaches.
Zuri offers a wide range of activities to enjoy throughout the resort or on the island itself. Head to the water sports centre for snorkelling equipment, diving lessons and beach games like volleyball and pétanque – and you can book sunset dhow (traditional sailboat) cruises and fishing trips from here. Thanks to Zuri’s outstanding proximity to Tumbatu Island and Mnemba Atoll, you can easily arrange trips to these fantastic diving and snorkelling spots. The hotel’s Spice Garden is the perfect place for a stroll, a private meditation session or a cooking class to learn more about authentic Swahili cuisine.
Head to Stone Town to explore the labyrinth of colourful streets in Zanzibar’s cultural and historical heart. Take a short spice tour to learn all about lemongrass, papaya and vanilla; see where these exotic herbs, spices and fruits are cultivated; and get a deeper understanding of why Zanzibar is known as the Spice Island. Or simply just soak up the sun beside Zuri’s enormous infinity pool while enjoying the incredible Indian Ocean views.
Zuri Zanzibar is located on the most beautiful beach on the north-western shore of Zanzibar and offers a completely unique and off-the-beaten-path experience. The resort’s style is a perfect blend of contemporary and traditional, a charming depiction of Zanzibari culture. With beautiful ocean views, delicious cuisine and wonderful facilities, Zuri is a great choice for your Indian Ocean island experience.
