Zanzibar is fast becoming one of the top diving destinations in the world. Surrounded by coral reef structures abundant with marine life, good visibility (20-60metres) and a year round average temperature of 27 degrees C makes for an excellent diving experience. For those that are taking a trip to the island with the hope of learning to dive the Z Hotel has teamed up with the leading dive company in Nungwi, East Africa Dive Centre (EADC), offering a professional approach with the same high standards in safety and customer satisfaction that you would expect from a 5* Instructor Development centre.

The full range of courses from the International PADI system of diver education are available; from your first breath underwater to the wealth of specialty programmes to fit individuals needs Ocean wide. The numerous coral reefs off the coast of Nunwgi are teeming with a variety of fish such as Napoleon wrasse, graceful manta rays, sharks, kingfish, turtles, barracuda and wahoo. Divers will appreciate fantastic wall dives, night dives and drift dives off beautiful beaches, in warm and tropical waters and be rewarded with a rich variety of marine life.

Set in the crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean, Zanzibar with its tropical climate, white powder beaches, rich cultural heritage and abundant coral reefs offers some of the best diving in the world. It is one of the last remaining areas of outstanding natural beauty unspoilt by tourism. Indeed Nungwi beach has recently been voted the 5th best beach in the world by the UK newspaper, The Guardian, which describes it as "to die for".

The Island's capital Stone Town is a designated World Heritage site and blends a culture steeped in the opulence of the Sultans with influences from Europe. Zanzibar then formed part of the Portuguese, British, Italian, and German Empires creating a unique legacy and almost mythical atmosphere.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   Get yourself the half-board package because the seafood here is phenomenally fantastic! The workers are greatly courteous and very hard working. I stayed here five days and had no issues whatsoever. Beautiful place and stay, the commute is long from the airport but the hotel will accommodate. Well priced for the region and resorts. Also near a lot of the activities. Enjoy!

Review:   We've never experienced such friendly and service minded staff. Nice pool area with soft and nice sun beds. Private beach area with bar service and the sea was unbelievably beautiful. The area has several hotels you easily can walk between for souvernir shops, money exchange or restaurants. There are two restaurants. Cinnamon which is a bit simpler but good if you want a burger or pizza, and has a rooftop bar with a lovely view of the sunset. We had most of our meals at Saruche wich held a very high standards regarding menu selection and food quality - don't miss the lobster tempura! We used the spa a couple of times and the massage, manicure and pedicure were so relaxing and professionally performed. Rooms had everything you can wish for, large and clean bathroom. Comfy beds with large pillows. We warmly recommend The Z Hotel!
