Per Aquum Zalu Zanzibar

The Zalu Zanzibar sits on the island's northern tip, facing the distant, invisible Panza Island. Looking out across the exotic, perennially warm waters of the Indian Ocean, this beach-facing hotel exudes an air of relaxed desert-island romance.

Thatched roofs decorate the whitewashed villas, whilst the lodge's main building stands out - its acutely angled gables contrasting with the traditional themes that permeate the hotel's design.

Dotted across the surrounding grounds are 40 suites and nine luxury villas, offering a choice of ocean or garden views. In between, tropical flora and a network of quiet paths link these unobtrusive, beachside hideaways. Light and airy, rooms are decorated with a simple indulgence, with splashes of colour and rich wooden floors.

Located beside the hotel's vast horizon pool, the Market Kitchen serves a wonderful array of sophisticated, yet rustic cuisine. Organic ingredients add a natural flair to this gastronomic experience, which specialises in fresh, locally sourced products.


Service is key at the Zalu Zanzibar; staff go the extra mile to make every stay memorable and personalised. Furthermore, the vast villas offer comfortable luxury in a stunning location. Spacious and secluded, each features a private pool, dining room, kitchen and terrace or balcony. After dark, jetty parties offer a vibrant nightlife in a stunning location – positioned above the inky black waters of the Indian Ocean, as a cool sea breeze ripples across the timber decks.
