The hotel offers À la carte, alfresco dining in the main restaurant ‘Saruche’, along with Asian-fusion tapas and sharing platters in ‘Cinnamon’, the cocktail bar, where you can also find an exclusive list of mouth watering cocktails.


For the energetic traveller there are numerous activities available at the Z Hotel. Zanzibar’s warm turquoise waters and stunning coral reefs offer the perfect haven for divers, water-skiers and deep sea fishing enthusiasts.

The Z Hotel recommend the most professional and fully equipped local Dive Centre, whose very experienced and safety conscience team will reassure the novice and challenge the more experienced diver. Whether its snorkeling amongst the rich marine life that inhabit the coral reefs, or swimming with the Humpback whales during their migration, the Z Hotel can accommodate all your diving needs.

Excursions throughout Zanzibar are also available with a wealth of history waiting to be discovered. Much of this can be found in the Island’s capital, Stone Town. Guests wishing to explore more of the Island will find an array of excursions on offer including visits to Jozani Forest – home to the endangered Red Colobus Monkey – Spice Tours, Prison Island and Mnarani Turtle Sanctuary.

Relaxing by the pool with a cocktail, exploring Zanzibar’s history or skimming across the sea in one of the “doughnuts” (not for the faint-hearted!) you are assured an exciting variety of activity at the Z Hotel.
