Details of Essque Zalu Zanzibar

Accommodation

Choose from 40 suites, all with picturesque views over the lush tropical garden or the turquoise blue ocean. Ensconce yourself in luxurious-styled spaces crafted from local materials, adorned with native artwork and housed under a traditional pitched Makuti roof.

If you need extra space to spread out, then select one of the nine expansive villas. Stretch out in the spacious living room, unwind in the privacy of your own massage area, rustle up a snack in your own kitchen, laze on the terrace overlooking the garden or just chill in the privacy of your very own swimming pool.
Once you are comfortable, make the most of your amenities, pick your favourite drink from your personalised mini bar, freshen up under a solar heated shower, or lie back on the king sized four-poster colonial style beds.


Suites

All 40 suites have a spacious master bedroom, as well as a lounge and outside terrace or balcony. One can select from an Ocean Front, Sea View or Garden View Suite - all of which have a maximum occupancy of 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children.

Villas

All 9 villas have their own private pool, in-room dining and massage area, kitchen facilities and terrace or balcony.

The maximum occupancy is as follows:

  • 3 Bedroom villas: 6 adults
  • 4 Bedroom villas: 8 adults

All Suites and Villas have Wireless Internet, which is included in the rate.


Restaurants and bars

Satisfy your taste buds with a choice of three distinctive restaurants, a scrumptious café, and two well-stocked bars - or dial a mixologist to come right to your suite and shake your very own tailor-made cocktail!

Market Kitchen

The Market Kitchen styled restaurant serves cosmopolitan fare, a gastronomic spread of crisp salads, cured meats, fresh seafood, bread straight from the oven, mouth-watering cheeses and desserts. Create your own culinary journey featuring organic produce and fresh, hand-picked ingredients from local growers.

A La Carte

A 'must do' when visiting Zanzibar, the perfect place for an exceptional fine dining experience. Savour Essque Zalu’s innovative 'Signature Plate' or tuck into char-grilled prime South African beef steak.

The Jetty

Set al fresco on the shoreline of the Indian Ocean, where you can casually kick back with a refreshing cocktail, share succulent morsels of modern Arabic cuisine, freshly prepared mezze, draw on some shisha and gaze at the sunset. Experience a different setting every day, created exclusively by the elements and mirroring the flow of the ocean - a place to be seen, or to relax to the sounds of live music with friends.

1506 Bar and Terrace

An up-market and intimate space for you to enjoy the finer things in life. Browse the premium labels and vintages, select a speciality cigar, taste the tapas or just pop by for a post-dinner nightcap.
In Market (Villas only)
Customise your mini-bar and fill up on that favourite lychee martini. If you're a bit of a chef yourself, 'In Market' lets you order and delivers your grocery list to your villa. Or if you prefer the pros to fire up the flames, then 'Dial a Chef' will create the masterpiece of your fancy in the privacy of your own villa kitchen.
