Set in the Indian ocean, Zuri Zanzibar Resort is situated on the north-west beach of Unguja, one of the idyllic islands that make up the Zanzibar archipelago. The new resort’s name is fitting; ‘zuri’ is the word for beautiful in Swahili, the local language.
The resort has been carefully created as a micro-universe with the white sand beaches, spice gardens and luxury accommodation complementing each other harmoniously. Ecology and sustainability are central to the resort’s philosophy; locally sourced materials, energy-saving initiatives and community projects have been an important factor in its development. The resort’s owners were therefore seeking a uniform designer that shared their commitment to sustainability.
