Z Hotel was incredible. Rooms were clean, AC was great, gorgeous beach, fantastic staff. The beach at Nungwi is really the nicest on the island and comes alive at night. The pool is wonderful and the food is just what you are looking for. Great value.

My girlfriend and I were trying to look for a good hotel in Nungwi. We have never been to Zanzibar so I did not know anything at all. Due to this, I knew that coordination and e-mail exchanges needed to be efficient. I started by booking the garden view room for 2 nights online because the rooms were almost sold-out...

A new Hotel with all the amenities to spend good holidays next to the warm tanzanian water. Very good location straight on the beach. I was not particularly over excited by my "superior" room. Bed was not very confortable. Noisy house keeping cleaning from 7AM. I did enjoy the swimming pool with a fantastic view and lounge musics. Bar at...

We stayed here as a family (two teenage boys) for three nights in December. The hotel has lovely views, and is right on a classic white sand beach with dhows going past (tourist and fishing boats) making a picturesque view whenever you look that direction. We ate at the the hotel the whole time as we were too lazy to...

We stayed at the Z Hotel over New Year and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The rooms were very nice (admittedly, we also had the Z Suite), the staff helpful and kind and the restaurant served very good food. So whats not to like? The location right on the beach provided for beautiful sunsets from the RoofTop bar and great opportunities...

Second visit to The Z in 2016, returning again for some winter sun after an awesome experience earlier in the year. I was under the impression that early December was low-season for Zanzibar, particularly Nungwi, and whilst the surrounding properties seemed to be having a quiet patch, The Z Hotel was full of life and had a great atmosphere. The...

The Z hotel is a lovely hotel on the most beautiful beach. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The downsides are the prices of their drinks - the little bar right next door is half the price. Also the room we were put in was next to the cleaners storage so very noisy. The sink leaked and it was...

We stayed here for our honeymoon in December. Overall we enjoyed our stay, though we have some specific comments below. Pros: - Hotel gave us a complimentary honeymoon dinner at Saruche which was good and appreciated. (Note that the price of the dinner was US$98 without wine, which we wouldn't have thought worth it given other places on island) -...

Z hotel was a luxury stay. Fantistic pool with a sea view was the biggest draw. Although my friend's money was missing towards the end of the stay, the staff was very helpful in investigating the matter. Overall a pleasant stay.
