Essque Zalu Zanzibar feature 40 suites, as well as eight three and four-bedroom villas from which to choose from, all of which boast views of the Indian Ocean, or the lush, tropical gardens.

The hotel itself has been carefully constructed to the make the most of these breath-taking views: an idyllic turquoise lagoon, the tranquil ocean, and the expansive flourishing gardens.

Across the board, this Zanzibar resort makes use of a neutral colour scheme and traditional artwork – embracing the simplicity and serenity of an island lifestyle.

Once guests are comfortable, all are encouraged to make the most of their amenities: select your favourite drink from the personalised mini bar, freshen up under a solar heated shower, or lie back on one of the king sized poster colonial style beds.

Other in-room facilities include LCD televisions with several premium satellite channels, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
