We stayed at the Z Hotel for 4 nights in early august. The stay was very enjoyable and the hotel made every effort to make our stay relaxing and comfortable. We satyed in both a garden view and sea view room. They were both spacious and clean. The bathrooms were excellent and had a modern stylish feel that we were not expecting. The restaurant food was good with the food served in the Saruche restaurant being particularly good. The only downside was that the service was slow, but nothing that couldn't be handled when on holiday in Africa!
The hotel management were particularly good- I have never stayed anywhere that the General Manager's wife came and said hello within five minutes of us arriving. They gave the place a friendly feel and went out of their way to help and advise us when we needed to buy supplies from Stone Town. It is also really nice to stay somewhere as luxurious as the Z Hotel but discover that they are putting a lot of time, effort and money into helping the village that is next to the hotel. It is luxury without too much guilt about the poverty that is present on the island.
Definitely a place to return to.
