This is an accident found, once again a wonderful escape spent in Paradise. We loved every minute of our stay and we are already looking forward to our next visit to the beautiful Essque Zalu Zanzibar establishment.

Food was outstanding and the service level is unbeatable. Best place on earth to relax and recharge your batteries. We can only recommend the place and more...
We were very impressed that Nicolas came to chat to us one evening and he was such a warm and friendly person despite his position as GM of Zalu. The other highlight for us was the amazing long deck to restaurant and bar which was one of the major reason why we chose Zalu...

Room Tip: Get the ocean View suite...

We came to this hotel by accident. The hotel we booked had a broken generator and therefore they gave us the chance to stay here. How lucky were we ! By arrivel at the Essque Zalu Hotel we were immediatly impressed. Beautiful design, lovely people, ... It was peaceful, quiet and relaxing. Polé Polé as the locals would say. A nice younglady brought us to our junior suite, of which we had anything except complaints. The bathroom didn't have a bath, but the shower was so luxurious big, that we didn't miss a bath at all. After unpacking our baggs, we went for some food. The hotel has 3 different places where you can eat: in the hotel downstaires (outdoor of indoor), one upstaires and one in the middle of the ocean. We ate at all 3 and the food was outstanding ! We've been to many restaurants in our lives, but this was the best food we've ever ate, by far ! (also the best Mojito).
We would like to thank all the people who work at the hotel. They are so motivated and very kind. Therefore, our special thanks to the men and women from the restaurants, Mr. Aman and his collegues at the bar, the manager Monsieur Nicolas, the Chef, ...
The hotel is situated right at the beach. It's very nice to take a walk over the beach. It also has a fitness area, a spa and a shop, where you can buy souvenirs, juwelery and others.
Only the pool requires some taking use to, because of the salt water. But except from that, we have absolutely nothing bad to say about this hotel. We simply miss it already. A lot.
Kind regards,
Nils & Nakita Timmermans

This is real value for money. The best setting in zanzibar with the staff catering for all your needs. It has been a long time since we experienced professional service with smiles non stop! Nicolas and staff to be congratulated on the service levels already achieved with a hotel so recently opened. I wil recommend to anybody to stay there.Herman , Marisa and Susan de Bruin from South Africa
