    As the first Design Hotels™ member on the Tanzanian archipelago, Zuri Zanzibar is the ultimate spot to take in the natural beauty of the property’s setting on the main island of Unguja. Here, a 300-meter-long stretch of private, sunset-facing beach embraces the sea-foam green and sky-blue colors of the Indian Ocean, while the hotel’s spice garden immerses guests in the aroma of the island’s exotic flora, providing an olfactory glimpse into Zanzibar’s spice trading history. The property's west-facing location on the northern coast also promises brilliant sunsets that cast an orange-pink glimmer over the sea; a spectacle that turns the private terraces of the Jestico + Whiles-designed bungalows and villas into theater loges, complete with hammocks, luxury furnishings, and thatched or shingled roofs that epitomize the modern-meets-traditional African design running throughout the hotel. Organic products from the socially conscious Seaweed Center, palm-shaded gardens, a pool bar and grill, a Jacuzzi, massage cabanas, a library, and a cocktail bar on the beach combine to create a luxurious retreat, while the island’s rich offerings lay right on the doorstep.
