The Z Hotel is a chic, 35-room, British-owned hotel at Nungwi on the northern tip of the island. The style and decor blends contemporary design with traditional Zanzibari features. It is set in a small tropical garden with direct access to Nungwi’s main beach used by locals and travellers alike. Nungwi is a lively village, with many craft shops, hotels and restaurants, and this hotel is ideal for those seeking more than pure relaxation. Each hotel room has glass doors leading onto a sea-facing balcony, as well as cable television, airconditioning and WiFi. There are loungers on the pool-deck, as well as on the beach below. The rooftop suites are very spacious and quite outstanding. The hotel offers à la carte, alfresco dining in the main restaurant, and Asian-fusion tapas in the sociable cocktail bar.
