“Fantastic place to lodge in Zanzibar”

Definitely a beautiful place to stay and very clean and well maintained. The decor probably rivals many of the more expensive hotels. Very nice and cordial staff. There are many restaurants at walking distance. The villa has a cook that can make fantastic meals as well. These can be pricey compared to the restaurants around, but everything is made fresh on premise.

“Truly A Dream on the Beach!”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My husband, (2 yr old) daughter and I stayed five nights at the Uzuri Villa. It was hands down the best place to spend our vacation in Zanzibar. The communication with Enrico and AnnaMarie was fawless. They were quick to respond and helpful with suggestions around the area. From the moment we arrived AnnaMarie and the staff were very attentive to our needs. Traveling with our young daughter can sometimes be hard work but the staff helped with anything and everything our little one needed. The facilities are just stunning and that POOL, just amazing. The pictures are exactly what you will see when you arrive. The rooms were spacious and lots of outdoor lounge areas. The rooms do not have a/c but the fan and open screened windows help to cool it down. We were just steps away from the beach and the view of sunrise in the morning is priceless. One thing to note is the tide is based on the moon, so just know the tide goes out very far. But when the tide is in, it is a beautiful beach. The villa is in a quiet area between two fishing villages so you have lots of privacy. A lot of the time we felt like it was our own beach house! I don't want to forget to mention the food...the chef is very talented. Homemade pasta, breads, cakes and fresh squeezed passion fruit juice every morning. Yum! As you can see our time at Uzuri Villa was perfect and will return next time we are in Zanzibar!

“Fantastic location, wonderful villa, superb service”

My friends and I stayed at Uzuri and a neighbouring villa over New Year 2014. We were a large group of good friends reuniting from a ton of different parts of the world all arriving and leaving at slightly different times. We were boisterous, independent, often disorganised and good humoured all wanting to enjoy our time together as well as do our own thing. We met up with local friends and between the large number of adults we also managed a couple of toddlers, a preteen and a couple of teenagers. I think a proper test for any villa!

Uzuri and all her staff were superb! They organised everything for their guests - taxis, trips, excellent food, kept the bar stocked and generally pandered to our every demand. The chef is fantastic. He produced beautiful meals made from absolutely fresh ingredients time after time. He prepared an amazing meal from the fish we caught ourselves (whoppers!). The villa staff were always good humoured, provided great service and kept the place spotless. Anna Maria was amazing - she kept tabs on all of us, constantly thought ahead, constantly thought about our wishes and worried about us - again all with wonderful good humour!

Uzuri villa itself is beautiful. Great design, delicious swimming pool, great open veranda and the garden steps straight out into the endless stretch of white sand and azure sea that is Jambiani - seaweed farming and all. When we managed to prise ourselves away from Uzuri New Year's Eve saw us at the dhow race which was as always awesome! Stonetown is a perfect 45 minutes away with its atmospheric buildings amazing history and plethora of restaurants.

Uzuri - a heartfelt thank you! We had a wonderful time and you played a huge part in a definite top holiday!

“Paradise in Paradise”

As we travelled for the first time in Zanzibar, we were a bit worried about the accomodation. We booked a stay in Uzurivilla, that has exceeded all our expectations. Outside area welcomes you with a brand new pool, surrounded by palm trees that nicely shadow long chairs when relaxing by the pool. The house has 4 rooms, so even if it is fully booked, you don´t feel stuffed as in those big hotel resorts. We stayed in a Suite with a view on the sea and this colored garden. We appreciated a lot our big dressing and very spacious bathroom. The room is cleaned every day, towels changed as well. All house is very clean and has ones of these huge sofas to lie on!!! To start our day, we took breakfast: fruits and fresh juice, pancakes, bread and local jam, you can have eggs with sausige if you like as well. We decided to dinner every day there, because they have a very good chef John, all meals he prepared are very tasty.
Also, we booked some excursions, the manager Anna helped us to organize everything.
As we travelled around the island, we were interested in visiting some other lodges and hotels but Uzuri was far the best place to stay comparing to these others and we were glad to choose this one as a place for our holiday.
The only thing you should be aware when going there, do not take dollars under the year 2004, they do not accept them.
We were looking for relax, Jambiani is a very quiet part of the island, less touristic than other parts. Beach is "authentic", original, when we walked along, sometimes we did not meet any other humans and just this makes you feel that you are the only on the earth.
We dream to come back to this place one day..

“an unforgettable holiday”

The villa is simply marvellous. So chic and elegant, right in front of the blue sea, and plunged in a tropical garden.
Service is top level, everything is really at its best, Adam, the chef spoiled us with different typical dishes day after day.
We spent our holiday lying by the pool, swimming in the clear water of the ocean..or just relaxing on the huge sofas.
Just outside the house is the typical fishing village of Jambiani, just to have a glimpse of the life and the people there... everybody is so friendly!!
Annamaria, the local manager was always there to help us in any situation.
A holiday we will hardly forget... and we are just going back very soon!!!
It's a place that should not be missed!!!! you will go back home with a piece of Africa in your heart....this is what happened to us!!!
