The resort’s award-winning interior designers have elegantly combined 21stcentury tourism requirements with environmentally friendly architecture and a unique African atmosphere.
Designed by Jestico & Whiles the Zuri Hotel & Resort is both ecologically and socially responsive, offering high quality accommodation that sits comfortably with Zanzibar’s culture, climate and geography through the use of locally available materials, African-themed paintings from local artists, clever organization of space, and strong references to the island’s heritage and craftsmanship.
The Zuri Zanzibar Hotel & Resort is located on the most beautiful white beach of the northern west shores of Unguja, 50 km from Stone Town.
The resort plays a large part in the local community, firstly through offering local students the chance to study for the Zuri Zanzibar Hotel & Resort’s own two-year hotel diploma, with subsequent employment at the resort, and secondly by using as many local products as possible. These include organic and locally-made bathroom products throughout the hotel, and natural materials from all over the island that are being used in abundance.
The Zuri Zanzibar Hotel & Resort aims to be as self-sufficient as possible and to be certified as ecologically responsible. The resort uses water from its own wells cleaned by its desalination plant, and its sewage can be recycled and purified in order to be used for the maintenance of greenery in and around the resort. The space-cooling system ‘Evening Breeze’ uses just a quarter of the electricity of traditional air-conditioning.
