Nice, small hotel on the lovely Nungwi beach with: - Lovely restaurant, with sea view and lovely seafood dinners (breakfast at the same restaurant just OK I am afraid) - Small, but nicely decorated rooms with great sea view balconies - Small but lovely pool In retrospect, small and lovely is the hotel's theme :)

Great location with excellent service and very good food. The views of the sunset while sipping a cocktail in the beachfront pool will live with us for a long time. Situated well to explore other bars and restaurants as well as Nungwi beach. Perfect honeymoon destination.

One hour drive from Zanzibar airport, on the northern tip of the island. I said "Perfect" because as a solo traveler, it is difficult to find hotels that combine privacy and livelihood in a gentle way. One can enjoy a book while tanning, the beach, the pool (a little small), the bar/ restaurant on site, or one of the few...

We really enjoyed our stay here! Very attentive and friendly staff! Nicest spot of Nungwi beach and beautifull large rooms. 2 very small remarks: 1/ the music! Always the sames compilation CD of the worst of 80's and 90's music 2/ daily use of detergents in the room making it smell like hospital. But that's just to say something negative...

The Z hotel has a mixture of both relaxation and livelihood. You'd find lots to be done around the day and you can also relax on the beach or the by the pool and get a swim every now and then. It has a couple of restaurants and dive center which serve a variety of food giving you different options....

My brother and I visited several hotels around Zanzibar and Z Hotel was by far the nicest. The location was terrific. Unlike many of the other resourts, the beach at the Z did not disappear at high tide, and unlike the east side of the island, there were not strong winds. The hotel itself was fantastic. It was new, stylish,...
