My husband and I just spent 5 nights at the z-hotel at Nungwi beach and we absolutely loved it. The drive from the airport to the hotel takes about one hour, sometimes over bumpy roads, but it is well worth it. Checking in is easy and straight forward and you get greeted with a refreshing towel and a welcome drink.... More

What a divine hotel, boutique in style meaning the eye to detail was always present. I stayed there a few days ago for 5 nights with a girlfriend, planning to eat lobster, drink South African wines, loll by the pool and dine on the sand. We did it all in spades. There are a few great restaurants a walk along... More

We stayed at the Z hotel for 4 nights this week in order to unwind after a wonderful (but quite full-on!) safari trip. On arriving at the hotel, our immediate impression was that it had been squeezed into quite a small plot of land, with a very narrow drive, little space between buildings, sun beds packed quite closely together, and...

First off, the hotel arranged an airport pickup which made getting there hassle-free, although it is an hour from the airport. The hotel itself is beautiful and on such a great beach with the softest sand and bluest water I've ever seen. There's an infinity pool that overlooks the ocean as well. We were greeted by an extremely nice French... More

After almost 2 weeks of safari, we did stay for one week at The Z-Hotel in Nungwi. Boutique style hotel, tropical garden, a beautiful infinity pool, white sand beaches and an incredible blue and clear ocean. Our room was ocean front located, wonderful sunsets in front of our balcony each evening. To reach the hotel from Stonetown does take some... More

After being on an air safari in Kenya, then 3 days in Stone Town, this was a great location to end the holiday and do nothing! Sitting by the pool reading, swimming, walking on the beach - it was perfect and relaxing! We paid extra and had an ocean view room - it was on the 2nd floor and had... More

This place was simply amazing. Right on the beach. Which you can also snorkel at. The staff where incredible, great location and had plenty to offer. The restraint was also over looking the water at night. Perfect place for some romantic time with your loved one. The price was reasonable.5/5.

We stayed this hotel for 2 nights at the end of August. Make no mistake, This hotel is not easy to get to. Driving to Nungwi from Stone Town is an ordeal in itself but getting to the hotel from the turnoff from the main road is no walkover either!!! But once you get there all your woes disappear! Our...

We were at the Z hotel for 10 days and we couldn't ask for better location. The size of the room was very good apart of the toilet which a found quite small (we were in room 7). Service is very good but do not be in a hurry because they take their time to serve you. In our first... More
