My new wife and I had the privilege of experiencing the most exquisite four nights you can ever dream of. We happened to be on a honeymoon, however this place is perfect for those who aren't either. What it is perfect for is anybody who loves nature, intimacy, love, soul, care, thought, five star without the pretentiousness, excellent food and wines at your own timings, brilliant customer service, privacy, and not last but not least, a bucket of fun! If you are a person who does not like huge, big, sterile resorts - then Zanzi Resort is for you!!!!!!!!! Its the complete opposite to a usual resort, it is just simply bliss.
Katherine and Christian really know how to run the best hospitality in the world. Katherine is amazing with guest relations, making you feel right at home. Christian has the restaurant and beverages down pat. Unbelievable efforts by both.
During our stay, we did not once tire of eating breakfast in our own private villa on our own private beach and pool! I mean, how could you?! Outstanding service and food and serenity.
We usually get a little tired of eating at the same place day in and day out, but not here!!! The food and variation each lunch and dinner is fantastic. And they bend over backwards if you feel like a little something different. There is never an issue at Zanzi Resort, they cater to your needs.
Zanzi Resort is a brilliant way to wind down after a hectic lifestyle or having just had a wedding. We are not the type of people to lay around all day and sun tan, we find this quite boring usually but somehow Zanzi Resort and the people put your mind into a really intimate space that just lets you relax, read, tan, swim, kayak, bike, whatever you wish! It's heaven, and before you know it, it's night time again and time for drinks again at your own private villa watching the sun set, in complete privacy.
All of the staff are so open minded, speak excellent English (for those that really get bothered, we don't!), and always go beyond the call of duty. In no particular order, Jamal, Jah, Timari, Youseff and Abdul create magic every time you see them - you really are the best hosts in the world and we wish them luck in the future. Even the other staff which you generally don't have as much contact with are so beautiful and charming.
Needless to say, Zanzi resort is utterly clean and modern. It's above 5 class. It will not fail to impress you, words cannot describe how this place delivered us the most beautiful start to our Honeymoon.
Thanks again Zanzi crew... Jarrod and Cristina.
