From the minute we arrived we felt at home and welcome. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel grounds are spotless and constantly being groomed, cleaned. The hotel layout is thoughtful and makes the best of the views and ability to get anywhere quickly. The room we were allotted was comfortable, bright, well appointed and well thought out. Lots of space and places to put your items. The outlook was that glistening sand and ocean. The bed was very comfortable and air con worked well. I loved the fact that they had an array of refillable bottles in the bathroom for hair and body. Good to see them trying to move away from using small hotel plastic tubes. The ladies cleaning were very efficient, friendly and good at there job. The main restaurant Sexy Fish, was well laid out and again, wonderful staff. The food was exceptional!! The smaller restaurant and bar above was a wonderful place to grab a coffee or snack or eat a meal. Above that is a rooftop bar also with food available. All comfortable clean spaces. Lounge chairs on the beach and pool area were meticulously Maintained and staff were quick to help you with fresh towels. We were only there for 3 days and our only regret is that’d we couldn’t stay longer! I can’t say enough good things about this hotel! Thank you Ramon for making our stay so memorable.

Hotel's Favorite
We were lucky to get an upgrade to the 'rooftop suite'. It had everything and more. We had two balconies: one with sunbeds + outdoor shower, and one that was covered and had a hammock + dining table. The room had a lot of space and the bathroom was great. Breakfast at the hotel was very good with a mix of a la carte and buffet. Lunch/dinner at the Cinnamon Restaurant was good, not great, but the staff were very kind. They offered late-night cinema (Topgun) which was an amazing experience. Overall it was a very nice stay!

Would highly recommend the Z hotel on this paradise island! Staff went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable, especially Sam who was always kind, attentive and couldn’t do enough for us! Thank you Sam :) the hotel itself was beautiful, accommodation was excellent with panoramic sea views and we enjoyed going to the rooftop bar to watch the sunset at Happy Hour almost every evening. We will definitely be returning and recommending to friends - wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else in Zanzibar x

My partner and I were looking to get some sushi and be out of the sun. We went to this hotel and ordered their sushi which was really nice and the staff is really friendly. The service is a bit slow so make sure you don’t come when you’re ravenous otherwise you’ll be mad. But that goes for everywhere here

Let me start by telling you that my fiancee and I had beautiful dinner coupled with stunning atmosphere - we were sitting on a sandy beach overlooking Indian ocean. Feet in the soft skin-scraping sand sipping wine and tasting African flavors.. what more is there to say?! There's more!! None of this would be special if there was no our server! EMANUEL the waiter. He made our dinner special. Impecable service and beautiful spirit! This guy made sure our dining experience went perfect. As much as he was busy serving other tables he made sure to give us full answer on any of our questions taking as much time as it needed with attention to others. All our requests were fulfilled in a timely manner. Very educated person willing to get you to know more about his homeland tradition and more! This guy deserves every appreciation from both guests and his employers! Thank you Emanuel! I'd like to add that both of us share the passion of hospitality Fiancee being Michelin star restaurant sommelier and me as a senior manager. This adds even more value to the review and of how much tonights service from Emanuel was appreciated by us! Thanks again for wonderful dinner! 23.11.2022. Ben & Irena

The best restaurant at our trip to Zanzibar. We didn’t stay at the hotel (but I looked absolutely amazing) but after we discovered the roof toop restaurant we didn’t eat anywhere else. The best enchiladas we ever been eating. Great and nice staff. A must if you are in the neighborhood of this hotel to eat here.

I’ll start from the basics, beautiful hotel and very detailed experts. From saying hello with a true smile, take care of our needs with empathy, quality design and breathtaking view. The Z hotel is in the center of the city, and it’s important because you don’t need to take text anywhere. Sam and all the others from the bar and restaurant were great! And make our holiday even better:-)
