Zuri Zanzibar


Opened in July 2018, Zuri Zanzibar is a stylish resort set on Kendwa beach, arguably Zanzibar's best stretch of sand where you can swim all day without the tidal extremes that are found on most of the island. A member of Design Hotels, the resort combines contemporary style with Zanzibari influences and features beautiful tropical gardens and a tranquil green oasis, the Spice Garden, for yoga and meditation.

The rooms are all individual, stand alone units with their own private terraces as well as outdoor showers. The suites enjoy extended living spaces and Jacuzzis while the spacious villas boast ocean front locations and sea views.

Dining at Zuri is a true culinary experience with the fusion of African, Arabic, Indian and European cuisine reflecting the diversity of influences that have shaped Zanzibar. The varied food offering can be enjoyed in the three restaurants from the international cuisine and laid back atomsphere of the main restaurant, Upendo, and the chic Maisha pool restaurant to the light meals and cocktails of the beach restaurant. Guests staying in the suites and villas also have access to the private Dhow bar.
