If ever there was a perfect beach hotel, the Z has got it all. Set on the edge of white sands, it really is a piece of paradise. The food at the hotel was excellent. I was so impressed with the diverse, extensive menu at Saruche, it was absolutely delicious. The rooms and communal areas throughout the hotel were spotlessly... More

We spent 4 incredible days at the Z Hotel at the end of our adventure holiday in Tanzania. The hotel is located on the best part of the beach with direct beach access and white sand. The hotel has its own restaurants, shops, pool and even a private section of the beach manned by hotel security. We used this a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights following a safari. We were greeted with cold juice and a cool face cloth, the owners even came and introduced themselves. Our room was a great size and the balcony was a great place to chill after being in the sun all day. We were close to a set of stairs and you could... More

Went there last week for 3 nights. The place was extremely clean, in a fantastic location. The rooms were also extremely clean and spacious with a Spectacular view and beautiful beach. You will get to see a romantic sunset. The staff was very polite and always ready to help and assist. Highly recommend this hotel. Thank you Julie and Celine... More

We stayed here during our Zanzi Yoga retreat - we had the option of three hotels and I'm so glad we chose this one. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by the friendly staff. First, it's stunningly beautiful. The pool area was lovely with a great view down to the sea, and plenty of loungers... More

Reservation process was straight forwards. On the website I couldn't see availability but I emailed directly and there was. You pay 50% in advance online and then a further 50% on arrival. Note there is a 5% sucharge on all card use but you can't avoid that when booking in advance. You can pay cash on arrival for the remaining... More

We stayed here a week ago for some R&R after a Kilimanjaro trek. Upon checking in they gave us a tour of the hotel and took our bags to our room. Room was nice and had a great view of the ocean. Modern amenities including TV, safe, glass shower, and AC. Pool bar and pool deck were nice and allowed... More
