Essque Zalu Zanzibar in Zanzibar, Tanzania

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 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.

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, or relax al fresco and delve into fine Arabic cuisine all while the sun dips magically behind the Indian Ocean. At Essque Zalu Zanzibar, each night is as magical as the day.

We came here for a conference. The hotel is beautifully designed, in a very good condition, with professional and friendly staff. The food selection is quite good. The pool is excellent and has fresh ocean water in it. Long and great to swim in. The WiFi is decent. Please, note: In early March, when we were here, the ebb and flow are quite strong to the point of water receding by 100 m or so and coming back in the afternoon. Thus, effectively there is no beach and it is not really easy to swim. The conference area is not perfect - located under a huge roof of the main building - there is no real air conditioning, plus when it was really windy outside, the dust from the roof was falling down quite intensely. If you want to pay with a credit card, an additional fee will be applied (like in all other places in Tanzania). The air conditioning in my villa was also not exceptionally good.

We stayed for two nights, it's beautiful, quiet & the service is excellent , food delicious , try to get sea front or ocean view rooms, we enjoyed our stay , spa is also very good, nice gym , but there is no beach , it's on the cliff, so if u want to swim in sea then maybe not the place , though there are stairs to go down the beach from swimming pool & also pier, we found the beach too rocky and dirty to swim , we didn't see anyone swimming either, but their infinity pool is stunning ,

Very welcoming hotel with a very relaxing atmosphere. The ocean view room was very comfortable with everything we needed. The staff in the Market Kitchen restaurant were so attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Zaynab, the restaurant manager, went out of his way to liaise with the chef to ensure that each evening we had an excellent vegetarian meal that was both varied and of very good quality. The head bar man at the bar on the pier had such a lovely manner and gave excellent service. So much so, that we went there for a pre dinner drink every evening! We would recommend this hotel without reservation.
