About Essque Zalu Zanzibar

Essque Zalu Zanzibar is a luxury boutique resort located in a natural bay on the north coast of Zanzibar, within walking distance of the bustling village of Nungwi.

Essque Zalu Zanzibar has the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean on one side, lush green forest on the other and is surrounded by a hint of fragrant herbs in the warm tropical air.

A good combination of luxury and a sense of location.
