  1. Tanzania
  2. Zanzibar

The resort nestles in a natural bay on the north coast of the island on Nungwi Beach. The small fishing village is known for being a paradise on earth: picturesque beaches, shimmering turquoise water, and fine white sand beaches. From the property, you have direct access to the sea!

Stonetown Airport is approximately 55 kilometers away. We can arrange transfers at an additional cost.

The hotel combines beautiful elements of African style with modern and luxurious interiors. Its 30-meter high makuti roof juts out into the Zanzibar sky.

From the hotel’s infinity pool, the border to the Indian Ocean blurs. Lean back and let your daydreams drift you to a magical world. You should also see the 450 m² gallery, where you can purchase paintings, sculptures, or photographs by regional and international artists. A jetty leads from the beach into the vastness of the sea. You can have a cold drink or enjoy a small bite at the bar at the end of the day.

The hotel is ideal for families too! The Kids Club is available for the younger guests, and they also offer a babysitting service.

In the 48 luxury villas and suites, each comes with a small terrace and interior design that boasts modern elements and traditional African style. Amenities include a telephone, LCD TV, WiFi (for a fee), minibar, safe, air conditioning, hairdryer, bathrobes and bathroom with separate shower.

Garden Suite - approx. 55 m², with a terrace or balcony overlooking the garden.

Ocean View Suite - 58 m², with terrace and sea view.

Seafront Suite - 58 m², located directly on the sea.

Other villa categories are available upon request.

The Essque Zalu Zanzibar offers a first-class culinary experience. At the Market Kitchen, sample fresh seafood and fish.

For a lovely sunset dinner, head over to The Jetty and order delicious bites to eat and refreshing cocktails. You can also kick back and treat yourself to a shisha after dinner and look out over the vast sea.

For breakfast, tehre’s a buffet with numerous homemade products, such as mango jam, chocolate spread, and fresh rolls. In addition, you can pamper yourself to an à la carte menu. The hotel’s service is impeccable: always courteous, discreet, and quick.

At the fitness center, you can also be active while you’re on vacation. A diving school, parasailing center, and jet ski rentals are just five minutes away.
