We’ve been thinking about a trip to Zanzibar for a while, and Zuri Zanzibar combines luxury with the abundant greenery and beaches of the area.
Cramped rooms are out here; the spacious resort hosts 55 bungalows and suites, each with its own terrace to watch the sunset over the sea. Designed by London-based Jestico + Whiles, the décor is a careful combination of modern and traditional African touches, including hammocks, wooden beams, and an abundance of natural materials. Artefacts from local markets are combined with mid-century touches. Located in Kendwa on the coast of Unguja, Zuri encourages guests to make the most of the local coral reefs with a snorkelling trip or two.
