The hotel itself is a top experience on its own. Where to start? I would say that the staff makes you feel like a king, but yet in a relaxing and not too-pushy way. They are great, always trying to find a way to please you. Really really nice people.
Further on, hotel is a beautiful place that you don't want to leave. The beach is amazing, and as we heard, on almost every other place on Zanzibar, water moves around 300m during the day due to tides, so sometimes you have to walk really long time from the beach until you reach the water, but not on Nungwi beach in front of Z hotel, here it is minimal. So we were amazed by the great beach and the clearest water.
Great thing is that the hotel is just on the beach, so during the day, you easily switch between hotel sundecks on the beach and sundecks around infinity pool, and you just don't know where to go more :) Wherever you decide to chill on the sun, you can enjoy great snack choice, drinks, and super cocktails.
I would say that hotel is equally nice for couples, families and friend groups. Wi-fi works properly all the time. Food is nice, and especially the hotel restaurant you book for the night - always fresh fish prepared nicely with different spices and ad-ons.
Rooms are nice, we took the basic one and it was OK. We were walking around a lot, and this was by far the most beautiful hotel we have seen there. The only minus is that generally when on Nungwi, and you would like to visit Stonetown more than once or twice, it is quite expensive to always book a taxi there and back since it is around 120 USD both way per car. But we joined another couple who wad rented a car on their own, so managed to wander around the island.
At night, there are several bars around, good enough to have a drink or few, but the most amazing thing happens before the dark, when people sit casually on the beach in front of hotel, and watch the most amazing sunset ever. This is one of the greatest pluses of Z hotel location, and you can even enjoy it from the infinity pool, or even your balcony if you're on upper floors.
So, overall, this can not even be compared to other hotels around. It gave us perfect relaxing vacation after our safari. We LOVED it!
