The Zanzibari Hotel is located in eastern Nungwi along the north coast of Zanzibar.

The hotel lies above a cliff overlooking the sea along a relatively little developped stretch of coast next to Essque Zalu. It features no real beach but has equipped an artificial one above the cliff with wooden stairs leading down to the sea. Likewise the rest of the eat coast this area is also subject to tides but their effect is not so pronounced. At low tide one can enjoy beautiful undisturbed walks but at high tide the sea will engulf the shoreline and none should leave without being aware of the tide-chart since swimming back, pushed by the sea against the cliff, can be quite dangerous.

The hotel consists of 3 suites scattered in the garden and 8 standard rooms set back in the plot in a two- storey buiding called bougainvillea house. The ideal number of occupants per suite is two however the rooftop floor has been furnished with a single and a double bed and a private bathroom. Being opened toward the sea, this upper room is suitable only to outdoorsy folks. In the Bougainvillea house the standard rooms, on the ground floor, only offer a garden view while the upper floor rooms provide a distant seaview.

The hotel is complemented by the swimming-pool, the bar, the restaurant and the little SPA on the beach.

Activities such as snorkeling, diving, traditional and deep sea fishing are arranged throught the watersports centra at Ras Nungwi.

The Zanzibari Hotel may be an option for travellers looking for a mid-range facility on the northern coast of the island away from the busy mass turism areas of western Nungwi.
