Z Hotel opened in 2008 and is Zanzibar's first affordable “Boutique on the Beach” hotel situated on the northern tip of Zanzibar. It blends elegant, contemporary design with traditional Zanzibarian features to create a unique, cool and relaxing atmosphere. The northern beaches are thought to be the best on Zanzibar, and according to the UK's Guardian National Newspaper, Zanzibar was rated the thirrd best beach break location in the world!
Set in a lush, tropical garden with direct access to the beach and year round warm waters of the Indian Ocean, the Z Hotel has been finished to a high specification by an international team of architects and interior designers.
Each of its 35 rooms has modern furniture, cable TV and floor to ceiling glass doors leading out onto a balcony.
These cool, contemporary guest rooms are available in 6 designs: Deluxe Garden View, Deluxe Sea View, Interconnecting Rooms, Roof-Top Suite, Ocean Front Cottages (with private decks over the sea) and for the ultimate in opulence, a 100 sq metre Z Suite with 2 terraces and outdoor jacuzzi.
Z hotel offers alfresco dining in the main restaurant as well as Asian-fusion tapas and sharing platters in another dining room. Guests may also enjoy a large variety of drinks and cocktails from the bar.
