Breathe in the crisp, refreshing ocean air and breathe out all the stresses of the world, then open your eyes to the serene and breathtaking beauty of Essque Zalu Zanzibar – part of the Lifestyle collection of Preferred Hotels & Resorts. Overlooking powder white sands and the shimmering Indian Ocean, nestled in a cove on the Northeast tip of Zanzibar, this fabulous resort is a true island paradise. Amidst the gorgeous beach and lush gardens, nine stunning villas offer complete luxury and supreme comfort. Beautifully gleaming wooden floors lead through a bright and inviting space, crafted to seamlessly blend chic modernity and the relaxing ambiance of beach life. Enjoy separate living and sleeping rooms, elegant baths and stylish kitchens, and step just outside to your very own paradise. Stretch out on your private terrace, cool off with a dip into your private pool, and gaze out over the coast as the waves roll gently ashore. At Essque Zalu Zanzibar, each day is truly this amazing.
After a morning swim in your pool, make your way down to the beach and soak in the delicious sunlight. Make your way to the Africology Spa for a morning of pampering as you melt under the practiced hands of a masseuse. Venture out that afternoon and explore all the amazing sights the island has to offer. Hike through the verdant trails of the Jozani Forest, maybe catching a glimpse of the Red Colobus monkey, or make your way along the Marangu Route high atop towering Mount Meru. Stroll through historic Stone Town and visit the enchanting bazaars, then take a tour of the "Spice Island's" fascinating spice plantations. For an amazing day at sea, cruise out to the famed Mnemba Atoll to scuba dive around stunning reefs, or snorkel and sun yourself along the shores of beautiful Prison Island. After a fabulous day touring the island or exploring its enchanting waters, return to the resort for an unforgettable sunset dinner. Dine on fabulous steaks at A La Carte, or relax al fresco and delve into fine Arabic cuisine at The Jetty, all while the sun dips magically behind the Indian Ocean. At Essque Zalu Zanzibar, each night is as magical as the day.
