Emerald Zanzibar Resort & Spa is a luxury Resort that effortlessly offers to all guests, space, comfort and privacy, while emulating both the freedom and elegance of the natural surroundings. The "Natural Elegance" experience begins with breathtaking views, spacious facilities, close proximity to nature and safety for all guests which will ensure guests to live their "Natural Freedom."

Located in Matemwe, on Zanzibar's northeast coast, the five-star resort is set within 10 hectares of beachfront land on the white-sand Muyuni Beach. 250 rooms are divided in Jr. Suites, Superior Jr. Suites, and Presidential Suites. All Suites harmoniously blend with the tropical surrounding environment while enjoying an elegant, cozy and relaxed ambiance with a modern, comfortable style.

The resort features four distinctively different restaurants, a Beach Grill & Bar and the two bars (the Garden Pool Bar, the Main Pool Bar). Each restaurant is very different from one another, proposing flavors and typical recipes from the Asian tradition and it's cooking methods, dishes that are exclusively Carnivorous, as well as a selection of fresh fish, seafood, meat and vegetables cooked on a stone grill to enrich the flavors of each dish.

The two bars will allow you to get a morning boost smoothie, a tasty snack and please your daily needs with something flavorful and energetic to keep you moving throughout the day. The Gelateria is the top notch gem of the Resort, as it will offer different variety of fresh ice creams, adding a tropical twist to your day.

Guests will also be able to enjoy free access to the fitness center, including a gym equipped with the latest Technogym machines as well as two tennis courts.

The Resort is reachable with a transfer from the main Zanzibar International Airport to Muyuni in only a 45 minute drive.
