HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 November 2016

Our full week vacation during the 2nd week in October was divine. After reading so many excellent reviews we had high expectations, and they were all met and even exceeded. Trying not to repeat what has been already written in other reviews about the place itself, this is the kind of refuge/resort/secrecy where you get literally spoiled, without visible limits....

Great experience in our time there. Restaurant's food is so good and tasty. The villages are beatiful, there's also breathtaking exotic gardens around. Perfect place to be on the most privacy possible with secluded villas. The staff always attentive and kind! 10/10! We will go back there next year!

After a long trip a van picked us up in the middle of the night for a short drive to the resort, where we got a very warm welcome (even at 3:00 in the night), staff did manage some fruits and samosa's in the room as a midnight snack. Had a tour around the 6 hectare big area in the...

We stayed in a luxury villa with private pool for 5 days in February 2017. The room was spacious and clean. The garden is beautiful and very well taken care off. The food was excellent.

Zanzi Resort is an elegant and charming private hotel situated on the shore of the Indian Ocean, 20 km from the historic town of Stone Town and 25 minutes from the international airport. Seven large and luxurious villas, offering an intimate environment, are perfectly equipped and finished with an artistic touch, as is the restaurant and SPA. The outside of each villa features a large private pool with a counter current/ hydrotherapy element, patio, shower, gazebo draped in a mosquito net, a lush tropical garden and private path leading to a secluded beach on the Ocean. ZanziResort's African Eco Villas are made of local materials like wood and clay. They are designed in african spirit with all luxury amenities. Villas have one big room and bathroom. Outside each villas has relax area. Close to those villas there is a big swimming pool. A personal butler takes care of our guests and fulfills their needs. The resort, spreading over six hectares of astonishing garden, along with its in-house restaurant and SPA, was designed in a romantic style, ensuring a sense of profound intimacy. Our refined and carefully chosen menu will satisfy the most demanding palates. Guests can have their breakfast, lunch or dinner either in the restaurant, in the privacy of their villas or on the beach. We offer international cuisine, fresh fish and seafood, all with organic vegetables and spices picked from our own Eco-plantation. A coral reef lies 80 metres from the shore. We offer an interesting package of sports activities and island excursions. ... more   less
