This restaurant at the second floor has an great view. Staff is very nice and we have enjoyed a great lunch with variety of seafood, noodles, hamburger and spring rolls. My personal favorite are the wasabi calamari.

After two weeks in Tanzania, one spent climbing Kilimanjaro, my friends & I were exhausted & ready to just relax. Z Hotel was the perfect place. The hotel arranged transport from the airport ~ which was very welcome. Outside arrivals was hectic and a bit intimidating, even for a seasoned traveler. The hotel was beautiful - like a small village.... More

Spent a sunset over there having a Piña Colada in a balinese bed. The views are amazing with boats in the sea and some locals playing football The local was crowed but it was worthy, good music, ambiance and the sun coming down. You won't regret it.

My husband and I were supposed to spend the last 4 nights of our honeymoon here, but we left after 2 nights. Coming here from a boutique hotel near Paje beach, the Z hotel did NOT feel at all like a boutique hotel. Being on our honeymoon we were looking for something more special. Internet did not work. It started... More

My partner and I found it difficult to leave The Z hotel. We fell in love with the place. Unfortunately we were only there for a few days after touring around Uganda & Rwanda. But we'll definitely go back for a longer vacation. Hotel: The hotel is very well taken care of. The decks and walkways are constantly swept free... More

After two excellent but exhausting weeks on safari, it was bliss to arrive at the calm, clean and so so friendly Z Hotel! Special memories include the white sands, sunset cocktails, unbelievably starry skies, and dinner on the beach. Ajit and Tito run a great kitchen, and everyone there was unfailingly warm and friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great... More

I can't say enough how beautiful Zanzibar is and how everyone needs to just visit this beautiful island! The Z hotel is right on the beach, has amazing rooms facing the ocean and yet private enough for all. There are great food choices and a great rooftop bar for the best sunsets! The view is just out of this world!... More

The rooms were great and we had flowers on our bed every morning. The complimentary bottle of champagne was lovely as well. Overall, it was a great experience and I... More

We spent 5 nights at The Z hotel last week. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. The Z hotel is beautifully appointed with comfortable, stylish rooms and lovely details....far superior to any of the other accomodation in it's vicinity. It's worth noting that Nungwi is a great place to visit with a buzzy atmosphere unlike some of the other... More

Stayed here after a week's safari to relax and we were really pleased we chose this hotel. The location is good, right on a lovely beach, clean white sand and turquoise sea! We had a room with a sea view on the third floor. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and well appointed.... More
