Essque Zalu Zanzibar

Experience luxury in special hotel on Zanzibar

Essque Zalu is nestled in a natural inlet on the northeast coast with on one side the beautiful turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and on the other lush green forest. Smell a hint of herbs in the warm tropical air...

All 40 suites of Essque Zalu have scenic views, either on the lush tropical garden or the turquoise ocean. The luxuriously furnished suites have a traditional sloping Makuti roof and are made of local materials. Native art adorns the suites where you can enjoy your favorite drink from your personal minibar, shower under solar-heated water and relax on your colonial style king-size bed. There are also nine sprawling villas where you can enjoy your own massage room, kitchen, terrace and swimming pool in complete privacy.

The personal 'mates' of Essque Zalu are always there for you. They advise you excellently in all possible activities. And there are many! Explore the island, stroll through Stone Town,   the world's oldest Swahili trading city, listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Explore the famous plantations with cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and lemongrass. Or take a deep-sea dive, enjoy snorkeling the shooting fish or try one of the other water sports such as parasailing and jet skiing. There are two turtle retreats next to Essque Zalu. Essque Zalu has its own gallery where you can view paintings, sculptures, glassware and photographs by regional artists. There is also a well-equipped spa with a very extensive menu of treatments and a gym.   And are you hungry or do you have something to celebrate? Are you a wine connoisseur or do you feel like trying cocktails? There are three different restaurants, a café and three well-equipped bars to pamper your taste buds. Or order a 'mixologist' in your suite and shake your own tailor-made cocktails.
