Zuri Zanzibar Hotel & Resort

Jestico + Whiles was appointed to provide the architectural and interior design services for a new hotel resort on the archipelago of Zanzibar following an international design competition. The project combines global design flair with local materials, expertise and craftsmanship.

The Zuri Hotel & Resort will be a self-contained village with 60 individual cabanas and five larger villas, together with restaurants, bars, yoga, meditation spaces and massage cabanas.

In response to the client’s brief, the proposal is both ecologically and socially responsive, offering high quality accommodation that responds to the local context.

The design responds to Zanzibar’s culture, climate and geography through the use of locally available materials, the organisation of spaces and strong references to the island’s heritage and craftsmanship.
