Essque Zalu Zanzibar is an excellent vacation spot for any crowd. The resort is beautiful and well-kept and the friendly, enthusiastic staff only adds to the ambiance of the whole place. Upon an exhausting arrival to the resort I was greeted by the handsomely attired staff with big smiles and cold towels. Unlike some resorts, the check in was a relatively fast and smooth process. After only 5 minutes up front we were escorted to our room and the navigator handled all of our paperwork from there. The grounds are gorgeous with plenty of greenery and nature. The jetty and view of the Indian Ocean from across the infinity pool leaves once speechless, particularly at night. The resort is very cozy and is a great place to relax and unwind on a long, peaceful holiday. I had the pleasure of enjoying one of their deep tissue massages which left me feeling very relaxed and renewed. Highly recommended! There were some cons such as the bugs that find their way into the room, minor electricity issues, and the charge for bottled water; but all and all this was a great vacation and I highly recommend it for the savvy traveler. Also my commendations on the selection of the staff. All of the young men and women there are full of advice on things to do in the area and are happy to help. Without great employees you could not have a great resort so continue to treat those jewels well!
