Zuri Zanzibar

Much loved by the travel trade since its opening in 2018, Zuri has become ever so popular that finding availability these days is cause for celebration. Zuri embodies the essence of a hotel with soul and story: anyone who has stayed will attest to its genuinely relaxed vibe and the friendly warmth it exudes. Sipping a cocktail with your toes dug into the white soft sand at Bahari Bar watching a mesmerizing sunset over the ocean feels like paradise found – you wouldn’t want to leave even if someone paid you to. And Zuri’s story is one worth telling: a long quest by the owner Vaclav Dejcmar to find the best beach and build a resort with true African spirit. Our verdict: Mission accomplished.
