Zuri Zanzibar Hotel & Resort

Zuri Zanzibar Hotel & Resort is located on the far north-west coast of Zanzibar.

Zuri Zanzibar sits on Kendwa beach in the north-west of the island and is a refreshingly luxurious offering in an area that has traditionally catered more for the backpacking market. Kendwa Beach is one of the best on the island and isn’t as affected by tides as the rest of the island so swimming in the sea is possible throughout the day. With 56 rooms, the hotel is not small, but the lush garden landscaping creates a sense of privacy. There is also a good range of accommodation from the cosier bungalows to more exclusive villas for those wanting more space and privacy. Zuri Zanzibar would suit those looking to experience this area of Zanzibar from a luxurious base and with a good range of facilities. Facing the west, sunsets from the beach are also quite spectacular.
