Essque Zalu Zanzibar is located on the northernmost tip of Zanzibar island, nestled in a cove that overlooks the Indian Ocean.

Essque is probably the most luxurious hotel in the area and has gained a good reputation for offering both value for money and quality.

A 5-minute drive from the small fishing village of Nungwi and approximately an hour drive from the airport at Stone Town.

The standard of accommodation is also very good. The hotel is housed under a traditional pitched Makuti thatched roof and surrounded by a large swimming pool area, 40 suites and nine villas. All 40 suites offer views of the lush tropical garden or ocean. Particularly enticing is the wooden pier that stretches into the sea, allowing for swimming at low tide.

The self-contained villas offer self-catering, a butler service, as well as private pools. They are easily some of the best locations for families on the island – there is also a good kids club.

The hotel’s main selling points are its location just outside the busy village of Nungwi (which is an attraction in itself), its main pool area and pier, as well as its activity centre offering scuba diving, jet-skiing and parasailing.

"The one thing I like most about Essque is the location. Only ten minutes walk from one of the best beaches on the island leaves you in your own private resort, feeling you are miles away from anywhere. The garden rooms are seriously good value."
