FAMOUS ZURI DJ SUNDOWNERS

The iconic “Sunset Zuri” event with DJ or local live band takes place several evenings per week on the Zuri beach front. The most magical moment in Kendwa – the incredible sunset – will be even more fascinating if it is accompanied by Zuri’s special selection of wine, drinks and salty bites. It is a perfect option how to spice up the end of another day of your holiday.

 

MAIN RESTAURANT & BAR

The Upendo Restaurant overlooks the entire resort and serves international cuisine with an African/Indian Ocean twist. The restaurant’s laid-back Zanzibari style and live cooking shows make it the ideal place for breakfast and dinner, whilst its separate deck is ideal for private events or larger dinner groups. Peponi bar in the Zuri Zanzibar offers comfortable benches and sofas for a peaceful and relaxing ambiance. Switch from the sun directly into the cooling shadow of the Peponi Bar and enjoy its high quality selection of gins and cigars.

 

POOL RESTAURANT & BAR

Decorated in a chic African style, Maisha has a casually upbeat setting with an easy African vibe, and is the perfect venue for enjoying the ocean views. Guests can enjoy its one and only fusion cuisine that mixes Southern European and Indian Ocean cuisine throughout the day, and, upon reservation, typical Middle Eastern and Omani food for dinner under the pool’s pergola.

 

BEACH RESTAURANT & BAR

The beach restaurant & bar embraces its natural surroundings with modern, yet authentic, features.  You can enjoy finger food and small bites whilst admiring the Kendwa beach‘s amazing sunset and beautiful starry sky.  Choose from the bar’s wide range of original cocktails, aperitifs and special refreshing drinks, including sugar cane cocktails, fruit daiquiris and smoothies.

 

DHOW BAR

Located on the semi-private beach in front of the villas, the private beach bar offers a casual

but chic atmosphere for guests staying in the deluxe suites and villas.

    ZANZIBAR LOCATION & WEATHER

    Zanzibar is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean, lying on the eastern coast of Tanzania, which consists of Unguja and Pemba, the two largest islands, and about 50 smaller isles and sand banks. With just a few degrees dividing Zanzibar from the Equator, the tropical climate offers warm sunshine and incredible shades of blue ocean.

    The climate is more humid than on the mainland. The long, dry season that runs from June until October comes with a bright blue sky and gorgeous sunny weather. The “green“ season starts at the end of March/beginning of April and lasts until the end of May. The ‘short rains’ take place during November and December and act as a refreshing period for the land, with the second dry season, just a short one, taking place in January and February. The temperature from September until April is 26-32ËšC and from May to August 25-28ËšC.

     

    TIDES

    Tides are very important in Zanzibar, as they have a big impact on the daily life of the inhabitants. Depending on the moon, Zanzibar experiences 2 low and 2 high tides per day, with 6 hours in between low and high. The full moon and new moon provide stronger tides (“spring tides”) on the shoreline. However, depending on the location, they have more or less important tidal consequences. The north west coast is the least exposed to tides, which makes Zuri Zanzibar an ideal location, since tides have no impact on its private beach.

     

    CUISINE

    As the history and culture of Zanzibar is influenced by many different cultures, its cuisine follows it. Persians, Arabs, Chinese, Indians, Portuguese and others have brought new tastes, flavours and smells to the islands, from Chinese glass noodles, to sweetmeats from the Middle East, to spices from India.

    Zanzibari culinary art contains dishes flavoured with cloves, ginger, pepper, some chilli and fresh coconut. Other delicacies originate from the African mainland: manioc potatoes, boiled beans, sweet potatoes, roasted corn on the cob and yam. Another equally traditional dish is “sorpotel”, a mixed offal and pork stew seasoned with curry spices. The famous Zanzibari pizza is also not to be missed. For food lovers, it is easy to find special meals: shark in pepper, octopus in coconut milk prepared with curry, cardamom, cinnamon, garlic and lime juice.

    HISTORY & CULTURE

    The Zanzibar archipelago consists of the islands of Unguja and Pemba, along with a number of small islets. The name is thought to have Persian or Arabic origins.

    Following Vasco de Gama’s visit in 1499, Zanzibar was ruled by the Portuguese and remained this way for almost two centuries. Zanzibar then became part of the overseas holdings of Oman and was ruled by the Sultan of Oman. It soon became the main slave market of the east African Coast where ivory trades thrived, and there was an expanding plantation economy centred on cloves. The islands gained independence from Britain in December 1963 as a constituional monarchy. A month later, the bloody Zanzibar Revolution led to the Republic of Zanzibar and Pemba. In April, 1964, the Republic merged with the mainland Tanganyika to form Tanzania.

    Today Zanzibar has its own Government and President with semi-autonomy. The elements of Persian, Arabic, Indian and European culture are most visible in the capital, Stone Town, which was recently declared a World Heritage site by Unesco. The capital is the proud home of the Freddie Mercury Museum, as he was born in Stone Town.

    The most important sources of income are spices, which can be found in our very own Spice Garden (cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper), raffia and tourism. You can find some of these spices in our very own Spice Garden.

    97% of Zanzibar’s population practices the Islamic faith, the rest is divided between Hindu and Christianity. Ramadan is the most important tradition for the local people.
