Zanzibar has long been a destination of choice for holidaymakers, and with its unmatched beach and lush surroundings, Zuri Zanzibar is taking this destination to the next level of paradise.
Zuri Zanzibar, which opens in May 2018, benefits from being in a fantastic location – right near the turtle-nesting zone of Tumbatu Island. It’s also close to the Mnemba Atoll Marine Park, which offers some of the best spots in Zanzibar for diving and snorkelling.
One standout feature of Zuri Zanzibar is the beach. The resort is nestled on the most beautiful white beach on the northwest shores of the island, 50 km from Stone Town and its international airport. The hotel’s private 300-m, west-facing beach is free of any tide impact, allowing for safe swimming all day long, not to mention breath-taking sunsets.
“The beach was the reason why I bought the land many years ago. Unlike most Zanzibar beaches where one must walk 500 m to swim at low tide, our beach, settled in the large lagoon, is always perfect for swimming,” says Vaclav Dejcmar, owner of Zuri Zanzibar.
“I have travelled the world and stayed in the most luxurious sea-front properties, but I still consider Zuri’s beach as one of the best on Earth. It is not just the white sand and the incredible colour of the turquoise Indian Ocean, but also the local way of life, which is so cheerful and optimistic. When you see the dhows in the distance during the spectacular sunsets, you do not need to practice mindfulness or meditation training to enjoy the present moment and understand the power of now.”
The hotel includes 55 bungalows, suites, and villas that sit comfortably within Zanzibar’s culture, climate, and geography. From the outside, Zuri Zanzibar emulates a traditional Zanzibar village, while the inside offers the very best in comfort, with light, airy rooms and open areas. A member of Design Hotels, Zuri Zanzibar combines elegant contemporary design with a considerate, sustainable build, and an authentic African atmosphere.
Particular emphasis has been placed on the gardens at Zuri Zanzibar. As Dejcmar says: “The garden is the icing on the cake. I do not mean the private spice garden covering a quarter of our land – the only one of its kind in the area. I mean that Zuri itself is the garden. All the villas and bungalows are part of an enormous tropical park which you can enjoy by walking through and investigating it. Hundreds of gardeners and landscape designers needed more than two years to select all the trees and flowers placed in the resort. The result is an enormous tribute to Zanzibar and its rich historical legacy.”
