The Essence Of Zanzibar

The Zanzibari is unique: never busy, always peaceful, positioned on a low coral cliff, a few steps down to the seemingly private 100m stretch of beach and ocean.

Our authentically Zanzibar, all en-suite, 11 roomed boutique hotel is located in popular Nungwi on the North Eastern tip of the island.

Views abound. Whether from the seafront swimming pool, ledge-top plunge pools, or your chosen sea view room, marvel at the stunning beach and panorama cocooned in established, colourful, tropical gardens.

Our renowned Dhow Restaurant & Bar and poolside bar menus present options for food and refreshment, served anywhere it suits our guests.

Spa treatments focus on providing an intimate and tranquil experience, with an added personal touch that encompasses our individuality.

Just Perfect For Us

All of the staff were very pleasant, the grounds are exceptionally beautiful. Nungwi beach is a $5 cab ride or a pleasant walk along the waterfront. The Zanzibari is quiet away from the hustle of the beach but the waterfront here is smooth rock and not the best for swimming. We loved the action on the beach but the quiet solitude of the Zanzibari at night.

Lovely Quiet Small Hotel

The staff are so friendly and it is the most relaxing spot with fabulous view over the Indian Ocean. food was excellent and every day there was a bonus. Only downside is the terrrible potholed access road!
