Zuri Zanzibar

Interior design Jestico + Whiles

Prague’s Jestico + Whiles studio combined modern design with traditional African and Asian pieces at Zuri...

creating a property that is both ecologically and socially sensitive. The multidisciplinary studio used natural and local materials, as well as making the most of Zanzibar’s heritage of craftsmanship: bungalows, villas, and communal spaces are characterized by artifacts from local markets, furniture of polished and exposed woods, and 1960s-style chairs, stools, and lamps.

Architecture Jestico + Whiles

The garden-like landscape, as designed by Ferdinand Leffler, resembles a traditional African village, with thatched roofs, palm trees, and greenery...

lending privacy to each Jestico + Whiles-designed bungalow and villa. Natural materials are abundant throughout, from the wooden beams used in the structures to the refined pieces of furniture that embody the overall African-chic visual identity. Many of the private terraces also play host to hammocks and sun loungers.

Building plans were made per the natural structure of the land, keeping the majority of the original trees and greenery. Locally sourced, environmentally friendly materials were used.

The hotel donates items that are not needed to local hospitals, veterinarians, and the community. The interiors feature decor made from recycled materials.

Zuri Zanzibar uses LED lighting and offers guests the option to choose the Evening Breeze cooling system over standard air conditioning, saving up to 75% energy.

Icon Water (1)

Water

Water is purified using ozone technology—the first resort in East Africa to do so—and desalination plant systems, so the hotel does not use local village water sources.
