Z Hotel

The Z Hotel is located in Nungwi in the north of the island, a popular area of hotels, restaurants, shops and bars. The beach here is not as tidal as some areas of Zanzibar so it is possible to swim at low tide and the hotel faces west for wonderful sunsets over the ocean.  

The rooms are contemporary and colourful with amenities such as a safe, fridge, ipod docking station and an LCD TV. The suites are more spacious and every room has a balcony with either garden or sea views.  

Saruche Restaurant offers al fresco dining for breakfast and dinner overlooking the beach and the sea while the Cinnamon bar serves light meals as well as drinks and cocktails. A new addition is a rooftop bar which has furniture made from wood recycled from old sailing dhows. The hotel also has a small spa, cafe and gift shop.
