ZanziResort
Ranked #5 of 172 Hotels in Zanzibar Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Zanzi Resort opened officially in September, so it's brandnew. This, the discount they offered and the good reviews so far convinced us to give it a try. And we didn't regret it at all!

Zanzi Resort offers a lot of privacy: there are only 7 villas. Each spacious villa has it's own garden, own pool (6x3m) and a beautiful view and direct access to the ocean. The beach is somehow private because at each side of the ressort is an army camp (no trespassing allowed) which also makes it pretty safe...
The food is very good: The lobster we ate the first night was excellent and the chief cook is presenting himself the first day at the villa which is a very nice gesture. The staff in general is very friendly and helpful.
The only tiny negativ point is that they don't provide free bottled water at the villa (only for the first day). This is quite odd because they provide tea and coffee with milk at the villa...
All in all it's a perfect getaway if you like a lot of privacy.

Zazni Resort is characterized by extremly intimate atosphere (private villa, private pool, private view on the sea). Perfect for romantic holiday, but families with children will find something for themselves. What is more important - staff and all Zanzi employees create unforgettable and unique atmosphere! Wine and fresh juices - worth a sin :)
I really hope, that in close future I will come back there!

This summer we spent nearly two weeks in ZanziResort and it was really wonderful time for us!
ZanziResort is a luxury holiday camp situated between west coast of island and palm forest. Every villa has individual access to the sea and also private swimming pool and garden with beautiful tropical plants. The villa is beautifully furnished – there is exotic wood, sandy marble and many african local features. Our bed was every day decorated with flowers by our maid! The staff is up to the highest mark, every time very friendly, caring and discreet, the food is really excellent - it is served on request at any time you want. We spent very relaxing time in ZanziResort because of its unusual character - it is different from other hotels and holiday camps we saw on Zanzibar Island - it is calm and isolated, there is no crowd, noise or hurry. Ideal place for us!

My wife and I stayed in ZanziResort for 10 days in August .
The hotel is new and truly beautiful. There is a lot of unique art-works around, bravo for the artist. We got Ocean Front Villa with private pool. That was a real fun because the pool has swimming machine, we loved that. The villa, terrace, swimming pool were just for us, nobody else was there. We adore that kind of privacy! There were stunning sunsets, we used to go to swim into the sea in that time, the ocean was warm and quiet, unforgettable experience!

The villa is spacious, tasteful decorated and well-furnished. The personal assistant was discreet,
helpful and very friendly. Excellent food. We loved having in-villa breakfast. The dinners were different each time. One time Louise, the manager made special dinner for us on the beach. That was more than we expected! Absolutely amazing.

Thanks for all of you. You all did the best for us and we will never forget ZanziResort.

PS
I think we've discovered a recipe for a perfect holiday.
