Z Hotel is located in west Nungwi long the north coast of Zanzibar.

The hotel is intended for young couples looking for a lively place where to spend their holiday, some nightlife and a level of servicing just a bit above the average.

It is set above a cliff overlooking the sea along a stretch of coast where low tide does not affect the possibility to swimm however the size of the beach in front of the hotel varies considerably between high and low tide . During low tide the beach is fairly wide while at high tide it shrinks to a few meters strip as you can see from pictures posted. If you like walking along the shoreline do not forget to ask, before leaving, at what time high tide will be coming in again.
 
Z Hotel consists of about 38 rooms divided into 12 garden deluxe, 18 deluxe seaview, 2 rooftop suites, 1 Z suite and 2 seafront cottages.  Deluxe rooms, rooftop suites and Z suite are all located on two three-strorey buildings. On the ground floor there are only deluxe garden rooms. The second floor hosts both deluxe garden rooms and deluxe seaview rooms. The third floor features only deluxe seaview rooms while the two rooftop suites and the Z suite are located on the last floor. The rooftop suites enjoy double-height vaulted ceilings into the roof and outdoors shower on the terrace. The Z suite consists of living room, double bedroom and two outdoors terraces with jacuzzi and shower. All rooms feature air-conditioning,  LCD Flat Screen TV, iPod docking station, telephone, WiFi, safe, minibar, hairdryer. The two seafront cottages are set apart and feature outdoors deck overlooking the sea, living room and cooking facilities on the ground floor, bedroom, bathroom and balcony on the second floor.

The hotel is complemented by the Cinnamon and Saruche restaurants, two bars, the swimming-pool and the SPA.

Activities offered by the hotel's watersport centre Big Game Fishing include diving, snorkeling, deep sea fishing in Pemba channel. Kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing and Jet skiing are arranged in collaboration with other sport centres in Nungwi. Other Other ecursions such as guided visit of Stone Town, to Prison island, spice tour, blue safari, dolphin safari ... can also be arranged by the hotel.

Overall and for its specific customers, Z Hotel is a pleasant facility, furnished with a certain taste and certainly much better than those surrounding it. On the other hand the rather high number of rooms concentrated in a small plot and the high influx of tourists in this part of the island does not make it suitable for those looking for a quite place in the south seas.
