Long-awaited Hotel Verde Zanzibar opens its doors

The five star Hotel Verde Zanzibar – Azam Luxury Resort and Spa is due to open on March 21.

After three years of construction, Hotel Verde Zanzibar – Azam Luxury Resort & Spa will host its first guests on March 21.

The 106-room five-star hotel was commissioned by owner and Zanzibar-born businessman Said Salim Awadh Bakhresa and will now fulfil his vision of becoming leaders in the green economy sector by building East Africa’s greenest hotel.

Following on from the success and worldwide recognition of Hotel Verde, Africa’s greenest hotel in Cape Town Airport, the project was contracted to South African-based Verde Hotels. Bakhresa, chairman of the Bakhresa Group, appointed the group to manage the construction and development through to opening, including the marketing and management of this new sustainably responsible hotel.

Verde Hotels was able to enter the building phase at a point where it could implement the many green, sustainable strategies required in the promotion of responsible tourism, says Calvin Boia, who is part of the Verde Hotels executive team managing the opening of Hotel Verde Zanzibar – Azam Luxury Resort and Spa.

Some of these implementations include a renewable energy generation, reticulated grey and black water recycling systems, waste management, a heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) system and regenerative drive elevators. During construction, the hotel has followed the criteria of the Green Building Council of South Africa and will manage and operate as a certified sustainable establishment, offering a carbon-efficient stay.

“The hotel is 2km from the popular and ever-developing Stone Town and within walking distance of the beach. The 106 units offer guests five star luxury standard rooms and penthouse suites, a spa, a gym equipped with energy-generating gym equipment, three restaurants, conference facilities, entertainment, a gaming room, a kids’ club, jet skis and water sports. Future plans include the completion of a marina and a waterpark, which is already under construction,” says Boia.

“Zanzibar is gaining huge recognition as a sought after holiday and conference hot-spot and the hotel will add even more value. We have combined five star luxury with sustainable strategies and offer a wide range of facilities and activities. We are looking forward to seeing families, conference groups and all our guests enjoy the fruits of our carefully thought-out hotel.”

With inbound tourism numbers on a sharp incline, Zanzibar is indeed becoming a popular choice for holiday-makers, incentive travellers, and corporate and conferencing groups. Tanzania offers great value for money and attractions include: Mount Kilimanjaro, wildlife parks, and a remarkable history, as well as kilometres of pristine tropical coastline.
