A different kind of island paradise

Experience some of the finest luxury Tanzania has to offer at Essque Zalu Zanzibar, on the north east of Zanzibar, an archipelago off the coast of East Africa. To get here, you’ll have to fly into Dar es Salaam on the mainland and either fly or take the ferry to Stone Town on Zanzibar; from there, arrange a private transfer to the hotel. This opulent resort is just seconds away from the shore in one of the world’s most picturesque locations. Built into a cove on the Indian Ocean, the hotel evokes a feeling of connection with the natural surroundings. Guests are treated to unmatched visions of the crystalline waters of the Indian Ocean on this secluded island. On top of your surroundings, it’s easy to feel at ease after a rejuvenating spa treatment at the AFRICOLOGY Retreat—try out a Singo body scrub and the tension-relieving foot scrub and then get an African facial to complete the hotel’s Maasai Ritual. Afterward, stop by one of Essque Zalu Zanzibar’s amazing restaurants to dine in style: visit Market Kitchen to try deli fare with a cosmopolitan flair, or check out The Jetty for a more casual time with panoramic views of the shoreline. But be sure to venture away from the hotel for some activities: go see Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the oldest Swahili port city on Earth; have the hotel arrange a safari, or hike the volcanic Mount Meru. You could also just relax by the pool or go swimming in the ocean. Guests can choose between staying in sumptuous suites or deluxe villas, and the décor is elegant, refined and peppered with traditional Swahili influences. Rates range between $250-$3,700 USD per person a night, depending on the time of year and room type. Book your stay here, and follow Essque Zalu Zanzibar on Instagram.
