Welcome to the enchanting Zanzibar Island. the perfect honeymoon retreat.


“ZURI” means “beautiful” in Swahili, which is the language of the island of Zanzibar. And that is precisely the feeling we want you to experience in this 12-hectare micro-universe. When thinking of how best to evoke the beauty of Zanzibar to you sensually, Zuri Zanzibar focussed meticulously on three main areas:

Unlike most Zanzibar beaches where one must walk 500m to swim at low tide, our beach, settled in the large lagoon, is always perfect. It is not just the white sand and the incredible colour of the turquoise Indian Ocean, but also the local way of life, which is so cheerful and optimistic. When you see the dhows (the traditional wooden sailing boats) at a distance during the spectacular sunsets, you do not need to practice mindfulness or meditation training to enjoy the present moment and understand the power of now.

Is not made up of rooms; just villas, and bungalows. Each separated from one another to attain absolute privacy, and all of them outfitted with outdoor showers and large terraces. Nestled on a west-facing slope, most of the units enjoy direct sea-views. And the ceilings reach for the sky: African-style roofing delivers a breath-taking cathedral-like feeling over your bed and cannot be compared to anything you would find in busy Western cities. On the other hand, being so far away from civilization, Zuri Zanzibar doesn’t compromise the quality of your connection with the rest of the world, which is why the resort built their own dedicated fast internet line to the mainland – the only hotel in Zanzibar to date!

Is the icing on the cake. All the villas and bungalows are just part of an enormous tropical park which you can enjoy by walking through and investigating. Hundreds of gardeners and landscape designers needed more than two years to select all the trees and flowers, in which you can bask. The result is an enormous tribute to the pinnacle of Zanzibar and its rich historical legacy.

Today, when more and more things tend to feel and taste the same, it is not an overstatement to say that Zanzibar is different. Located just on the Equator, the colours are more intense, more saturated, more vibrant. And, for some reason, the time runs differently as well! In this environment, it is so easy to forget our daily routines, to rouse our dormant imagination, and to perceive life from a new angle. Stop “doing” and start “being”. Because, ultimately, we are human beings, not human doings!


Whether laid back or action packed, there’s a range of activities to suit everyone; take in a sunset Dhow boat cruise, or pass the time with beach picnics and garden walks. The dive centre is perfect for those wanting to soak up the warm Indian Ocean waters and experience marine life. There’s something here for every couple.
