We can only have good words to Zanzi Resort and their staff. It was our last stop in our honeymoon, and we couldn't choose a better place to finish. Great Resort with privates villas, some of them with pool, not in our case although we enjoyed the resort pool alone everyday. The manager and the staff are so friendly, polite... More

Dear Marco, Thank you very much for this review. I wish all the hotels to have only this kind of complaints! It looks like all those small issues happened because of lack of communication between you and our staff. I was personally coming to your table every evening, asking if everything was fine, if you needed anything. On the first... More

We stayed for three nights after safari and other experiences in Kenya ... and seriously thought about adjusting our subsequent plans just to be able to spend more time at the Zanzi Resort. We ended up staying in a Villa (#2) and this meant a living/dining area separate from the bedroom, a private pool with all the privacy you could... More

I recently stayed at Zanzi Resort, and it was exactly as advertised. Well appointed villas, beautiful views, excellent service and peace and relaxation. Breakfast and lunch are served at any time during the day, and you have a choice of where to dine for all meals - beach, jetty, villa, restaurant.
