Zanzi Resort sits on the edge of the Indian Ocean, 15 km from the historic Stone Town and 30 minutes from the airport. Thirteen spacious, artistically designed villas and bungalows offer an intimate environment featuring private pools and patios. The halal friendly resort, spread over six hectares of plush tropical gardens, has an excellent in-house restaurant and treatment area, offering oceanside massages and the Japanese hot-stone treatment, gambanyoku. Local cuisine is prepared for an international palate with fresh seafood, organic vegetables, and spices from our own eco-plantation. Guests can dine in the restaurant, in the privacy of their villa or bungalow, or on the beach. A guest relations attaché is available to help plan day trips and excursions.

Around the Restaurant
From time to time, we organize BBQs at our BBQ pit. There is a library, where you can read or watch a game while sipping on a cappuccino or enjoying a freshly made juice. Enjoy your drink at any of the many seating areas in the garden
Jetty Dinner
Dining at Zanzi Resort is not restricted to the restaurant. If you want to take advantage of the sunset (and keep your shoes on), we’d be happy to move your table to the jetty where you can enjoy a candlelight dinner by the ocean.  If you love seafood, order our special seafood platter and choose a delicious South African wine as an accompaniment. Romantic dining at its best. 
Room Service
If you don’t feel like getting up in the morning to come to the restaurant for breakfast, we can bring it to you. Start your day with a leisurely breakfast in your villa or bungalow or next to your private pool. Throughout the day, you can order lunch or dinner and enjoy it in the privacy of your villa or bungalow.
