We stayed at the Z Hotel for 4 nights last week. The room was perfect, all staff very friendly and great cocktails. On a very late night arrival we were received by a member of the reception with a bite to eat and a drink, this was totally unexpected. Celline Frost guest relations manager was very helpful at all times.... More

Having successfully climbed to the roof of Africa and experienced the call of the wild on a safari, we were looking to finish our honeymoon somewhere where we could sit back, relax and be pampered, and the Z Hotel provided that by the bucketload! I had hoped to book the Ocean View Cottage but when making my reservation it had... More

We spent a wonderful time on our honeymoon and enjoyed every moment. The view from the room was amazing! My husband and I love taking pictures of beautiful places and Nungwi beach and the hotel gave us plenty of chances.

Good location and awesome beach in the front. Rooms are fun and fresh though a tad small in size. Definitely take a sea facing room for a minor charge vs the garden room. Staff is helpful and friendly.

My wife and I spent 6 nights at the Z for our honeymoon. We wanted a boutique hotel that did not skimp on beauty. The Z is a unique hotel that offers all of the comforts you could want on the beach. The Z sits right on the beach, with Saruche restaurant's balcony extended over the beach. Many of the... More

Loved this hotel, . Just off the main road and derived down a tall tree lined alley, you will come to a gate, which opens to a small pea gravelled courtyard. There, We were met by Atlas and Celine, who welcomed us to the Z Hotel (pronounce Zed Hotel, not Zee). Celine was the hotel manager. When we arrived and... More

We were impressed with every aspect of the Z hotel. From the cold towels upon arrival, to the beautifully detailed upkeep of the rooms. Staff are attentive and helpful, you feel they get to know everyone personally. A tour upon arrival is greatly appreciated. Room is lovely, as were surrounding hotel areas. Poolside area is an absolute highlight. Thanks for... More

My wife and I stayed for 8 nights at this hotel after our Safari Tour and Kilimanjaro trekking. It was time to relax on the beach. I was communicating with Celine from Guest Relations by email since our booking inquiry. Flawless arrival experience: pick-up service arranged by the hotel. Mr. Safe, driver received us at the airport and he helped... More

This is a great idea in Zanzibar...one of the few quality hotels that accept only Bed and Breakfast in case you want to spend the day out, or try nearby restaurants or bars, very green beautiful garden, and the best beach location, situated in the area with less tide movement, guaranteeing clean, clear, nearby beach the whole day through.

Zanzibar beaches are famously tidal - with the tide out most of the day, exposing reef and long stretches of sand that house razor clams and urchins (wear sea shoes). Z's location is perfect - the water is swimmable most of the day, and the sandy beaches are blissfully free of urchins and reef. It is one of the only... More
