Zuri Resort & Hotel


The Beauty of Zuri

Meaning ‘beautiful’ in Swahili, Zuri is just that. Nestled on a west-facing slope, this 12-hectare micro-universe offers stunning white-sandy beaches, turquoise waters, and unforgettable sunsets.

Zuri’s 56 suites and villas are fitted-out with a mix of stylish contemporary furniture and local artisanal features and artwork, ensuring a wonderful tropical experience of indoor and outdoor living, with rooms flowing seamlessly out to generous terraces surrounded by lush tropical gardens.

This exquisite resort is only seconds from the crystal clear ocean waters. This allows you to dive and snorkel in some of Unguja’s best reefs or sail on the azure waters of Zanzibar. Or keep to land with a variety of well-being activities, such as yoga and meditation, massages, a walk or relaxation in the Spice Garden’s glades or through a physical workout in the outdoor gym area.

Community & Culture

Zuri Zanzibar is implementing several long-term initiatives together with communities, other companies and organizations for cleaner environment and ocean, and for promoting employment, education, and awareness in Zanzibar. They are currently working on the completion of the Kilindi Kindergarten for 70 preschoolers in collaboration with a European NGO as well as finishing the rooftop for the secondary school.

Chako makes re-cycled products out of waste material that mostly comes from the tourism industry. They invite local artisans and craft workers, where they learn re-cycling, and artisan craft . Workers are encouraged to independently create products, and this stimulates social and economic empowerment and promotes sustainability.


The camp tries to have the lightest footprint as possible by using their own wells, desalination and treatment plant to provide fresh water, ozone technology and UV lamps in order to reduce the amount of chemicals in the pool, re-using water for irrigation, and computer monitoring to manage water consumption.

In 2016, Zuri started the ‘Keep Kendwa Clean!’ project together with Zanrec, a waste management company. For the last years, the funding has allowed Zanrec to operate the project and provide a healthier environment for the community. They have placed waste collection points around the local village, including the newest ‘Beach Clean Up Station’ inaugurated in July 2021, and located directly next to Zuri Zanzibar.
