We travelled north to the Z hotel after spending a few days in Stonehaven. Extremely friendly staff and made you feel very welcome. Beautiful breakfasts, idyllic pool, beach just outside hotel and safe. Beachside restaurants all along beach and local market adjacent to hotel with souvenirs and a small supermarket. The hotel room had a fantastic ocean view which they... More

We stayed a week at the ZHotel after a week long safari in Tanzania. We felt most welcome from the moment we arrived until we departed. The hotel staff is great, among the best I have experienced; attentive, responsive, yet friendly and easy to interact with in any situation. The hotel is nicely designed with pleasant furbishing. We stayed in... More

Z Hotel was our favourite hotel from two weeks in Tanzania and Zanzibar. Beautiful room, hot powerful shower, good air con (needed!), very nice staff. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of variety. Very nice rooftop bar, and good happy hour cocktails ($5) with popcorn. We strolled along the beach looking at plenty of other places and Z definitely looked the... More

The journey was long but so worth it! For Africa the hotel was just so well appointed, never had a room with such a view....it was purely stupendous! To lay in bed and watch the turquoise sea lapping in was just wonderful ! (Room 31) It's trying to be a 4 star hotel and almost there. The infinity pool gave... More

My mom and I spent 8 glorious days at the Z Hotel to celebrate her birthday. We had the most wonderful time. From the minute we arrived with delicious welcome drinks and fresh moist towels, we really felt very welcome. We booked an ocean view room, but were later upgraded to a top floor suite. (It is definitely worth it)... More

It's taken me a little while to write this review, mainly because I don't tend to write reviews very often at all but I had to give this place the comments it deserves. My friend and I had arrived in Zanzibar with a group of other overlanders after 3 and a half weeks of camping through various countries in East... More

Spending 12 days in this fantastic, leafy, relaxed hotel. The location is excellent and the hotel has probably the best beach in the area with plenty of sand during high tide (most other beaches entirely disappear). Great for couples and romantic sunsets. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful and the food of a very high standard. The rooms are... More
