Create your own personal paradise at Essque Zalu Zanzibar
Rather than blending into its surroundings, Essque Zalu Zanzibar makes a statement, with its big, bold, modern design. Though the soaring makuti thatched roofs, lagoon-like pool, lush gardens and tropical forest capture a sense of place, the décor exudes urban sophistication.
Located on a rocky cove lapped by turquoise waters, the resort’s wooden dock, which extends far out into the ocean, is a visual and recreational highlight: guests can climb down into the water to swim or snorkel, or sit up high in the chic bar, enjoying icy cocktails and 360-degree sea views.
For couples, the 40 suites offer cool serenity in the form of crisp, clean lines, neutral tones and contemporary furnishings, whilst families are amply catered for in opulent three and four-bedroom villas, each of which includes a private pool, kitchen, dining room and butler service.
Better still, parents can indulge in blissful spa treatments and scuba dives, safe in the knowledge the Tinga Kids Club coordinators are keeping the youngsters entertained.
