Secluded and private resort 30 minutes from Stone Town and Zanzibar airport. 7 private bungalows, great personalized service, friendly staff and superb cuisine. Stayed with wife in house 4 for 8 days just before rainy season March 27-April 4. Good alternative to staying at a large resort, price is reasonable for what you get, including your own personal plunge pool... More

We have just spent 3 nights in this little paradise. Everything was delightful from the rooms to the staff. We liked our room so much (more like a small house with private pool) we just stayed by the pool or on the beach swimming (also private access to the sea!), reading and relaxing.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Zanzi Resort is an elegant and charming private hotel situated on the shore of the Indian Ocean, 20 km from the historic town of Stone Town and 25 minutes from the international airport. Seven large and luxurious villas, offering an intimate environment, are perfectly equipped and finished with an artistic touch, as is the restaurant and SPA. The outside of each villa features a large private pool with a counter current/ hydrotherapy element, patio, shower, gazebo draped in a mosquito net, a lush tropical garden and private path leading to a secluded beach on the Ocean. A personal butler takes care of our guests and fulfills their needs. The resort, spreading over six hectares of astonishing garden, along with its in-house restaurant and SPA, was designed in a romantic style, ensuring a sense of profound intimacy. Our refined and carefully chosen menu will satisfy the most demanding palates. Guests can have their breakfast, lunch or dinner either in the restaurant, in the privacy of their villas or on the beach. We offer international cuisine, fresh fish and seafood, all with organic vegetables and spices picked from our own Eco-plantation. A coral reef lies 80 metres from the shore. We offer an interesting package of sports activities and island excursions. ... more   less
