Each guest room comes with travertine marble floors imported from Turkey, Italian designer bathroom suites, crisp cotton bed linen from Egypt, and bespoke furniture exclusive to the Z Hotel made from locally sourced coconut wood. They will provide single and shared rooms prepared for your convenience during your stay.
Each bedroom has French doors, set in the floor to ceiling glass which lead onto a balcony with views over their landscaped tropical garden and out across the crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean to the magnificent Zanzibari sunset on the distant horizon.
The yoga will take place at Flame Tree Cottages which is about 8 minutes walk on the beach from Z Hotel to Flame Tree Cottages.
The yoga holiday consists of morning and sunset yoga classes in Flame Tree Cottages. The duration of a yoga session is 1 hour and 30 minutes. You can spend the rest of the day either relaxing, getting massaged, strolling barefoot on the beach, swimming, diving, snorkeling or taking a Dhow sailing cruise. There will be no yoga on Saturdays.
The yoga classes are vibrant and include pranayama (breathing techniques), sun and moon salutations, as well as a dynamic flowing sequence of asanas (postures) bringing awareness into mindfulness and energy flow, followed by relaxation and a short meditation. The classes are suitable for all levels and variations given accordingly. Yoga groups are small which allows personal attention and adjustment.
Morning yoga sessions will take place in Under-the-Tree yoga studio with a beautiful sea view. Sunset yoga, on the other hand, takes place on the rooftop overlooking the ocean with the most spectacular sunsets.
Yoga is defined as a union between the soul and the body. As such, the breath is seen as the fundamental link between our physical and mental aspects. Yogic breathing exercises or pranayama teaches one how to re-energize the body and control the mind by regulating the flow of Prana (life force). We will practice Ujjayi Breathing (victorious breath), Kapalabhati (cleansing breath), and Analoma Viloma (alternate nostril breathing).

After having practiced yoga for 10 years, Tara decided to become a teacher and started her own studio in 2011. She landed in Morocco where she lead yoga surf retreats and was rewarded by seeing individuals and yoga teachers from all over the world open up about their own experiences at the hand of in-authentic yogis. The need for authenticity has now inspired her to create Retreats that are “like a constant cuddle, with a little kick in the pants” & Teacher Training that is “like a re-birth, a ripping off the layers and the evolution into the INDIVIDUAL teacher you really are".
Zanzibar can be described as both mysterious and romantic. It is also the evocation of exotic, an archipelago nestled in the Indian Ocean which is 37 km off shore from Tanazania. It is a destination that is not only mysterious but legendary as well.
From this remote outpost, at the hub of the monsoon trading routes, history was enacted. Journeys of discovery were planned, Sultanate empires were established, and the first medieval global village was founded. Zanzibar retains the imprint of its historic legacy in the tumbling streets of Stone Town, in the Arabic-inflected Swahili language and the rare antiques of the bazaars and markets.
The haloes of its idyllic beach and the fragrant spice plantations make Zanzibar the ultimate Indian Ocean destination and the jewel in East Africas crown.
Breakfast will be provided by the Z Hotel.
Meals like lunch and dinner will be additionally paid for whether it is in the hotel or elsewhere.
Excursions to Stone Town and throughout Zanzibar are also available with a wealth of history waiting to be discovered. Much of this can be found in the islands capital, Stone Town. Guests wishing to explore more of the island will find an array of excursions on offer including visits to Jozani Forest home to the endangered Red Colobus Monkey Spice Tours, Prison Island Excursion, and Mnarani Turtle Sanctuary.
