The long anticipated day has finally arrived on 2nd July 2018 when Zuri Zanzibar officially opened doors to welcome the first paying guests. The brand new 5-star resort is located in prime position in Kendwa in the north-west of Zanzibar, about one hour by car from Stone Town and the international airport.

Zuri Zanzibar boosts a 300 metres pristine beach that is not affected by tidal movements and hence ideal for swimming and at the same time offers breath-taking sunsets. The 55 units are strategically positioned to resemble an African village rather than a resort. Whilst the bungalows and suites feature outdoor showers and private terraces surrounded by tropical gardens to ensure privacy, the villas enjoy beachfront location including either Jacuzzi or own pool and access to a semi-private beach.


"Zuri is probably the first true lifestyle resort to be developed in this part of the Indian Ocean. ZURI means 'beautiful' in Swahili and that is precisely the feeling we want our guests to experience in our micro-universe".
