Zuri Zanzibar isn't your typical Tanzanian vacation. While most people go to the safari mecca to get a glimpse of the Big Five, this resort would rival any South Pacific getaway. It's located on the island of Unguja where 55 bungalows, suites, and villas stretch across the property's 300-meter-long private beach. Rooms are nestled among lush greenery and add to the tropical vibes with thatched roofs and natural materials. Each one is dressed in warm woods and African artwork offering private terraces overlooking the Indian Ocean. When you're ready for a break from the sand and salt, guests can escape to the on-site spice garden to relax among the local plants in a private pod or get acquainted with the native cuisine with a Swahili cooking class.
