After our safari we came to the Z hotel for some relaxation time. It is a great hotel with lots of amenities. The pool and beach area are superb! We loved staying at this hotel and would come back for sure. My one complaint about the hotel is that the bed was not comfortable. The sheets were damp most nights... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. The staff were great, the rooms were very nice, we had a great view of the ocean from our balcony. The bottle of sparkling was a lovely touch for our honeymoon. The infinity pool was beautiful and the deck chairs were great for relaxing with a drink in hand. The... More

We had three nights at the Z Hotel after completing our climb of Kilimanjaro. It was an amazing way to end an exhilarating trip to Tanzania. The hotel was perfect in every way and we were made to feel so welcome right from the amazing apple juice on arrival (you'll know what I mean when you try it!) to all... More

My husband and I arrived the night of the 8 of July this year (2016). We were quite tired from the flight and long car drive only to be welcomed by a lovely lady (manager July) and her friendly staff! We got a welcome drink which was exactly what we needed and then they proceeded to show us our room.... More

My Husband and I went to Z Hotel for our fall National day break from the UAE and it was an absolutely delightful and quaint hotel--best in the area in my opinion. Location: Z Hotel is located through a small village, down a beaten path--once you get past this, it is paradise. It is a quaint boutique hotel located along... More

Today 13th myself and my General Manager went to have dinner. We had some drinks as well. The place is within a compact area but the set up was really impressive. It was bit crowded but the service was excellent. The access roads are very narrow. As a whole it was so nice and satisfied.

I went on this holiday with my partner, and we could not have picked a better hotel to stay. The location is ideal and the sunsets are unforgettable! The hotel is so respectful of the local culture and community and they make you feel so at home. The interior decor is inline with the African theme and very very clean.... More

When I heard about Z hotel, for me there was no way that my visitors stay anywhere else. I am Swiss and I live in Dar es Salaam, graduated from Lausanne hospitality management school and wanted to make my friends comfortable, in a trendy, comfy, well-designed and friendly place. It was not a lie, we found that at Z Hotel... More

The Z Hotel was wonderful. Our room on the 3rd floor had a wonderful view of the Indian Ocean. The sunsets were amazing from our deck and from the rooftop restaurant. The television inside the bed netting was a thoughtful touch/decision. The food and drinks at all of the restaurants was delicious, The property was kept very clean. The staff... More
