I took my parents to Z Hotel for a week, we had a lovely relaxing time. The staff and management go out of their way to help you. There is good variety at breakfast, happy hour is well catered for, the pool and access to the ocean perfect. I'd love to go back another time.

We stayed in two of the best rooms the Z has to offer, The Z suite for the first half of our stay, a huge room over looking the beach and pool, and also had it's very own sun terrace with sun loungers, and separate huge balcony. We then moved on to one of the two cottages, split level houses... More

A stunningly beautiful hotel right on the beach in Nungwi. The hotel is small and intimate with a small but perfectly adequate infinity pool overlooking the beach. Next to the pool there is a massage table and a bar for lovely (but strong!) cocktails throughout the day and watching the sunset. By the pool there are the usual loungers and... More

Stayed with a group of 12 people for three nights. This is a gorgeous resort on a beautiful beach. The rooms are clean and beautifully appointed. Everyday the cleaning crew leaves beautiful flowers throughout the room. The infinity pool is a lovely place to relax with a cocktail from the adjacent bar. Breakfast is served on a large balcony overlooking... More

We stayed for 3 days and nights at The Z Hotel. Fortunately, we were assigned to one of the bungalows so we had a bedroom upstairs, living room and wee kitchen downstairs, along with a delightful deck/terrace off the living room. At this time of year, Zanzibar is quite hot and humid so we spent a lot of time in... More

After a "passport debacle" (aka we arrived at airport to go on holiday of our dreams and only realised when we got to customs my passport had expired), we left on the 8th to go to Zanzibar. We arrived to heat like I have never felt- within minutes my hair was clipped up, pants rolled up- and face was red!... More
