The launch marks the group’s first venture in East Africa
Set on the popular island of Zanzibar, LUX* Marijani has now officially opened its doors.
LUX* Marijani is positioned on a private stretch of Pwani Mchangani beach on the North-East coast of Zanzibar overlooking the Indian Ocean.
Encapsulating the essence of relaxed beachside living, LUX* Marijani design highlights include Omani-style architecture, white-washed walls, locally crafted terrazzo tiles and hand-carved doors reminiscent of the century-old doors found in Stone Town.
At LUX* Marijani, guests can choose from a range of experiences including guided visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stone Town, historical Spice Farm tours, yoga sessions on the sandbank that emerges at low tide, traditional dhow boat cruises to the shallows of Mnemba Island, Jozani Forest nature trail treks and visits to the19th Century Hamamni Persian Baths.
LUX* Marijani also offers a range of authentic and experimental cuisines with outlets including Café LUX* and The Beach, with Samāa, due to launch soon. The ‘Keen on Green’ concept sees a selection of plant-based, vegan and locally-sourced dishes on every menu.
The Lux Collective CEO Paul Jones said: "We are privileged and excited to partner with the ZK Venture Company in Zanzibar to operate this five-star boutique beach resort, raising its luxury quotient and service to yet another level.
"This marks the start of our meaningful partnership in the region of East Africa where the tourism potential is limitless. We're confident that the partnership will elevate our flagship luxury brand LUX* as we continue to expand our footprint globally.”
Rates start from US$357 per night including breakfast based on two people sharing. For more information, visit www.luxresorts.com/en/zanzibar/hotel/luxmarijani
