Zuri Zanzibar Hotel and Resort
The beach location of Zuri is superb, on one of the least tidal and most deliciously soft sandy stretches of this northern coast. The beach is a little bit busy, with quirky Zanzibari football or meandering Maasai, but the hotel extends the sandy stretch back to allow for a vast, peaceful, hammock slung beach experience. Then, further back and up the hill, the gardens are a delight, with huge baobabs and well established palms and flowering shrubs, all laced with pathways linking the villas and suites. The central swimming pool is impressively long and luxuriant, with funky beats pulsing out from the shades at the back. Zuri is a fantastic value option for those who are suckers for brilliant beaches, and a bit of quirky luxury.
