Essque Zalu Zanzibar
is located in the Nungwi
area on the northern tip of Zanzibar Island
off the Indian Ocean Coast
Opened in 2011, this large resort, with its enormous thatched main building, now dominates a previously low-key part of east Nungwi.
Although being Italian owned and managed, this place is definitely aiming at more international clients. As the price tag indicates, it is a pretty upmarket operation.
The cavernous entrance areas are impressive if a little soulless. The restaurant and bar are stylish and the main pool area impressive.
To one side are 40 well appointed suite rooms, whilst to the south like 9 three bedroom villas, backed by a very extensive spa.
Essque Zalu Zanzibar is a slick operation which is aimed at a more urban clients, as demonstrated by the remarkable fact that all the rooms feature non-opening windows, aircon and flat-screen televisions.Prices
