以斯瓦希里语中的“美丽”一词而得名,桑给巴尔Zuri酒店对当代设计与非洲传统工艺进行了新的诠释。以伦敦和布拉格为据点的著名设计公司Jestico + Whiles为酒店打造了55座以茅草覆盖的别墅和小屋,呈现出一种低调的奢华。

Taking its name from the Swahili word for “beautiful”, Zuri Zanzibar is simultaneously a celebration of contemporary design and traditional African craftsmanship. Designed by celebrated London- and Prague-based firm Jestico & Whiles, the 55 thatched bungalows and villas are the height of refined and uncomplicated luxury.

设计团队的任务是在充分尊重非洲传统设计的前提下打造出时尚而又现代化的酒店。设计的核心灵感来源于经典的乡村住宅群落。私人化的别墅借助底座抬升于地面,隐蔽在葱葱郁郁的山地林间,大都享有壮观的海景视野,并通过蜿蜒曲折的小径与许多社交空间形成连接。

The team was tasked with a brief to conceive a concept that was both chic and contemporary but with profound respect for traditional African design. A core inspiration borrows from the clustering of homes in a typical village style. Private and protected, the stilted villas peek from behind curtains of indigenous greenery, yet are placed so that most have ocean views with winding paths connecting to the many social spaces and environments.

这些小屋的面积从66平方米到250平方米不等,另外还有一座500平方米的业主自用别墅。由天然木材构成的开放而通透的空间是设计的重心所在。室内和室外并无明确的界限,每间别墅均享有专属的露台和户外浴池。

Villas range from 66 sqm to 250 sqm, with the addition of an owner’s villa of 500 sqm. Unifying the design concept throughout the villas and bungalows are open and airy spaces dominated by natural wood, wicker, and a neutral color scheme. Indoor and outdoor areas are blurred, with each villa featuring its own expansive terrace and outdoor shower.

手工定制的传统艺术品均出自当地艺术家之手,包括手绘壁画、具有热带风情的雕花大门、串珠窗帘以及莲花状的装饰等等。所有客人均可享受专门的“别墅服务”,酒店的管家会为客人全面介绍有关度假区的信息以及桑给巴尔岛上的各类活动,包括私人午宴和晚宴等。

Custom-crafted regional artworks have been produced by local artisans, including handmade wall murals, spice motif carved doors, beaded curtains, and lotus flower decorations. All guests have the exclusive benefit of a complimentary “villa service”, whereby a dedicated host can advise guests on everything relating to the resort as well as the many different activities to be found in Zanzibar, and can organize local activities, including a private villa lunch or dinner.

酒店的餐厅充分地展示出了当地的风情和文化,融合了非洲、欧洲、阿拉伯和印度等地的特色美食。不同风格的用餐空间还将为客人带来截然不同的体验,包括随性的沙滩啤酒吧,以及时髦的Upendo餐吧。客人可根据需要选择单次餐饮、半日餐饮、全套或高级全套餐饮服务。

The dining experiences at Zuri Zanzibar are a reflection of the destination: a mix of African, European, Arabic, and Indian cuisines. Several distinct styles and environments will give guests ample variety during their stay – from casual beach beers and bites to the chic venue Upendo. Full, half board, all-inclusive, and all-inclusive ‘premium’ options are available.

此外,酒店中还设有完善的活动设施,包括32米长的露天无边游泳池、图书室、电影室、台球桌、水上运动场所以及带有室外健身房和瑜伽室的健康中心。占地1.6公顷的香料花园内种植着生姜、姜黄、胡椒和小茴香等种类丰富的植物。在花园内的小屋里,客人们还可以跟随酒店餐厅的大厨学习烹饪,从而更加深入地体验并探索斯瓦希里的美食文化。

Guests looking to round out their days will find an abundance of activities on offer: an outdoor 32-meter infinity pool, an extensive library and movie collection, pool table, water sports, and a wellness center with outdoor gym and a yoga studio. A remarkably bio-diverse, 1.6-hectare Spice Garden includes ginger, turmeric, peppers, and cumin, among many more varieties. Guests can enjoy cooking classes with one of the hotel’s chefs at the central Spice House–an interactive and authentic way to discover more about Swahili cooking.

通过营造舒适惬意的岛上生活氛围,Zuri酒店进一步加深了与当地社区的联系。新酒店的建立使当地的环境保护、教育及就业质量得到了保障,在为客人提供富有当地特色、可持续且价格优惠的服务的同时,也尽可能地将收益回馈给当地社区。酒店度假区的目标是尽可能地实现自给自足,并通过自有的水井、海水淡化设备以及高能源效率的“Evening Breeze”降温系统获得生态资质认证。Zuri酒店所实施的一系列举措在减少环境冲击的同时,也对当地旅游业做出了重要贡献。

The delicate balance of life on this island means that with a project of this nature comes a responsibility to foster deep ties to the local community. This has been done through partnerships with organizations that are ensuring preservation, education, and quality employment remain at the forefront. Zuri Zanzibar provides guests with handpicked amenities and services from local, sustainable, and fair-trade organizations in an attempt to give back to the surrounding community. The resort’s aim is to be as self-sufficient as possible and to be certified as ecologically responsible by using water from its own wells, a desalination plant, and the energy-efficient space cooling system ‘Evening Breeze’. Numerous initiatives have been undertaken to ensure that Zuri Zanzibar’s footprint is as light as possible, and that responsible tourism is paramount.

Zuri酒店位于桑给巴尔主岛Unguja的西北海岸,300米长的原始白沙滩和热烈的阳光使其成为了绝佳的休闲和浮潜胜地,游客们可以在此得到全身心的放松。酒店距离桑给巴尔国际机场约1小时的车程,客人们可享受大巴接送服务。石头城(Stone Town)是岛上的首要城市,位于酒店度假区南部约1小时车程处。

Zuri Zanzibar is located on a 300-meter stretch of pristine white-sand Kendwa Beach, on the northwestern coast of Zanzibar’s main island of Unguja – a sun-drenched spot perfect for beach-lounging, snorkeling, and overall mind-body wellness. The local Zanzibar International Airport is approximately a one-hour drive away, with the hotel providing pick-up and drop-off shuttle services. The island’s capital city of Stone Town is located one hour south of the resort.
