    beautiful resort worth every penny

    I couldn't rate this place highly enough - the pictures online don't do it justice! Everything from the rooms, restaurants, pool and beach are designed beautifully and we loved how each cabin is really secluded in it's own little jungle. The food was delicious - especially in the a la carte dinner restaurant and overall the service was great. We will definitely be back in the future.

    Tropical paradise!

    Very, very nice! I've seen a fair share of high-end resorts and I can attest with confidence that Zuri truly is awesome! We stayed in a bungalow - it is very comfortable, clean, spacious, the terrace is lovely - facing the ocean and situated on a hillside so you catch the ocean breeze. The outside shower is amazing - you can see an attention to detail at every step. The resort has an abundance of tropical vegetation - a veritable garden of Eden! The food is pretty good but can get a bit boring after the 3rd day or so. The beach is very nice - just like in the pictures! The difference between high and low tide is small so you can swim all day. Overall - very nice and worth the money!

    This property is amazing, it’s low key but stylish, highbrow but not ostentatious, it has everything you’d ever need. the staff are incredibly friendly and always available. if there was 1 complaint, it’s not so much about this hotel, but so many hotels, why when you travel across the world do you want to eat the food from your own home. Tanzania has an incredible history of cuisine and cultures, it would be nice to see those honored in a hotel of this caliber. people can wait a few days for their fish and chips or hamburgers and pasta.

    Guys, i’m gonna be honest. Me and my missus are a bit high maintenance and love luxury. This place is a piece of heaven. Everything about it staff, accommodation even beach is better than anywhere around kendwa. Sunsets are brilliant to watch on beanie bags. Food could be improved on buffet nights but a la carte menus are pretty good and high standart. Its a bit expensive but its worth every penny. Attention to detail everywhere, everything is just right. We’ve had 4 nights and there was no availability so had to move to la gemma del lest which is pretty much few resorts down and we were in shock. Its also 5* but after Zuri it looked like 3 star if that. If you want proper hotel Zuri is the place to go. Its so green it feels like you live in jungle. Plants everywhere around bungalows very private and cosy. Inside bungalows all furniture well made and world known brands not some cheap stuff. Beds very comfortable best sleep ever. Good shower, good toilet. Theres even outside shower in the terrace.. really cool and its only years old i believe so everything is clean. Staff cleans room like at least couple time. Not even sure but every time we came back it was clean and tidy inside. At the end of stay some change went missing from the room so i would suggest to keep everything in safe provided in the room but all in all if brilliant place.

    Stunning resort in a stunning location. Hotel is setup to ensure guests have a very relaxing stay - great vibe - simple things like the music - just right. Staff were super nice and the service was excellent all round, Amazing sunsets from the beach - loved the sundowners, and from the top bar. Cocktails also very very good.
