LUX* Marijani

A SPIRITED BOUTIQUE RESORT INSPIRED BY THE SPICE ISLAND’S STORIED PAST, SET ON THE ICONIC BEACH OF ZANZIBAR’S PEACEFUL EAST COAST
LUX* Marijani is paradise defined: an iconic sandy beach on the island’s tranquil northeast coast, the brilliant blue waters of the Zanzibar archipelago, an Arab architecture with a coastal Swahili vibe inspired by the Spice Island’s storied past, the most creative dining experiences, wellbeing at every corner, and a curated collection of truly extraordinary experiences. LUX* Marijani is an invitation to celebrate Life Extraordinary in Zanzibar, the spirited island which has, and continues to lure the world’s travellers.

THE ICONIC BEACH OF THE EAST
The beach in front of LUX* Marijani, Pwani Mchangani, is paradise defined: powdery white sand, swaying coconut palms, and the blue-green waters of the Zanzibar archipelago. At low tide, a sandbank emerges–the perfect spot for a sun salutation. Rise early to catch a glimpse of the seaweed mamas, ankle-deep in the warm waters, or a traditional dhow sailing past. When the tides rise, the lagoon becomes the dreamiest swimming pool, begging a dip. Soak up the Zanzibari sun, get a head massage in a thatched hut, take a seat at The Beach restaurant for a long, lazy lunch, or do all three. This is beachside living at its best.

AN ARCHITECTURE INSPIRED BY ZANZIBAR’S HISTORY
Known as Spice Island, Zanzibar was once an important trading hub for traders from mainland Africa, India, and the Arab Peninsula. The unique mix of influences is what inspired our Omani-style architecture with a Swahili coastal feel. White-washed walls and coral stones, locally-crafted terrazzo tiles, intricate hand-carved wooden doors reminiscent of the century-old doors found in Stonetown, arches, ornate lanterns, pink coral… Each element of design tells the story of the artisans behind it, but also the complex, fascinating past of Zanzibar, which has long lured curious travellers.

CREATIVE, ECLECTIC DINING
Triple-cooked octopus in Zanzibar spiced coconut milk, raw, vegan green papaya salad, Mezze platters, cocktails designed around spices… Our chefs get creative in the kitchen. From the Zanzibar Kahwa hot brew at Café LUX* to a lunch at The Beach, our varied and creative dining experiences cater to all palates. Coming soon is ICI, our very own house brand of ice-cream and Samāa, our exquisite levantine restaurant on the beach under a starry sky. Zanzibar’s bounty is plentiful, whether it’s the tropical fruit, the local honey, or the freshly-caught seafood. We bring it all to your plate in the most creative and delicious manner possible. Think breakfast on a sandbank with your toes in the water and fabulous barbecue dinners on the beach. There’s no better way to discover a destination than through its cuisine.

MINDFUL TRAVEL
If you are up at daybreak, you will see women, ‘seaweed mamas’, tending to their seaweed gardens when the tide pulls out. To the left of the beach, you can see the harvested produce drying in the African sun. Sadly, resorts and tourism often push entire communities out, even though their livelihoods depend on it. Not at LUX* Marijani though. In the shallow waters facing our hotel, women have found work and independence. When the hotel was built, local craftsmen hand-carved the wooden doors, cut the white and pink stone, created the terrazzo floors… Endemic trees were also planted in the gardens. At LUX* Marijani, we say goodbye to single-use plastic. No tiny plastic shampoo bottles here. Refill your reusable water bottle throughout the hotel. We give you everything to make travel more mindful and your trip more meaningful.

FROM FOREST BATHING TO SANDBANK YOGA
From the moment you step inside LUX* Marijani, you feel the energy: calming, invigorating. Maybe it’s the salty air, the glow of the sun, or the lush tropical gardens. Rise at dawn for an early morning beach jog, swim laps in our pool, plunge into the warm Indian Ocean, or practice yoga on a sandbank. Be sure to keep an eye open for our indigenous forest, the perfect place to get into ‘Forest bathing’. At the boutique-size LUX* ME spa, treat yourself to a custom massage, a facial, or a mani and pedi. At our restaurants, you will see the menus labelled in green; they stand for our Keen on Green concept, which are all the vegan, raw and vegetarian dishes. Holidays are the perfect time to reset.

EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCES
Stories of early adventurers’ visits to Zanzibar have inspired countless travellers. The Spice Island is a heady mix of Arabic, Swahili, Portuguese and African influences. There’s a lot to explore out here. Tour a woodwork shop tucked between century-old trees and see how the hotel’s grand wooden doors were hand-carved. Visit a spice plantation and learn how spices are grown and harvested. Wander through the labyrinthine streets of Stonetown, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the LUX* way. Hop onboard a traditional sailing dhow to the shallows of Mnemba Island, famed for its dive sites. Take your yoga practice off the mat and onto a sandbank, which only emerges at low tide. Zanzibar is a magical place, and you will soon see why.

POP-UPS & SURPRISES
We love a good surprise, when the unexpected creates magic. That’s why when you stay with us, you will stumble upon pop-ups and surprises. An outdoor movie on the beach at Cinema Paradiso. A Tree of Wishes where you can manifest your dream life. A Message in Bottle which contains a little gift for those who find the hidden treasure. A sunrise beach breakfast. At LUX* we believe that every single moment is worth celebrating. Worth making remarkable. From life’s big moments to the small ones. Every moment is made extraordinary.

ROOMS & SUITES

What’s better than staying somewhere that was conceived with the sole purpose of giving you a good night’s sleep? The suites, conceived in an Arabic-meets-Swahili design, are set amidst tropical gardens, right by the beach. The whitewashed walls with their arches covered in fuchsia pink bougainvillea, evoke the island’s Arabic influences, while the locally-crafted terrazzo tiles bring in the coastal Swahili vibe. All suites have outdoor terraces or balconies facing the beach or the tropical gardens. At sunrise, the resort is magically lit with the first rays of sun, setting the tone for the day to come.

GRAND LUX* SUITES
Set right on the beach facing the blue-green lagoon, the Grand LUX* Suite is as grand as it gets. The luxurious hideaway features a bedroom with a pink-coral outdoor tropical shower, a standalone bathtub and shower, a kitchen that opens onto a living room, and a separate bathroom. The locally-designed terrazzo floors bring in the beachy vibe. The crown jewel? The outdoor sunken lounge and the private swimming pool on the beach, perfect for an intimate gathering.

DINING & DRINKING

There’s The Beach, our main restaurant which caters to all palates with its variety. The Bar serves up all the classics but also a creative menu of drinks inspired by the Spice Island.

Coming soon is Samāa, our exquisite Levantine restaurant set right on the beach under the open sky. With Zanzibar being historically at the crossroads of several cultures, the cuisine is a culinary mash-up, truly a kind of its own.

THE BEACH
Main restaurant
The Beach is our main restaurant. Located on the beach, near the pool, our day-to-night restaurant caters to all palates thanks to its variety. Our chefs cook up contemporary dishes inspired by the Zanzibari produce and bounty, which is as fresh as can be. The dining style is interactive with chefs at live cooking stations, and the variety is dizzying. We even have a corner dedicated to our Little Travellers. Take your plate to a table al fresco on the terrace, the open-air deck, or inside the grand dining room. The Beach, open from morning till late has something for everyone.


THE BAR

You’ve made it. You’re here in Zanzibar. What better way to celebrate than at our chic bar? Adjacent to our main restaurant, The Beach, our bar serves up a menu of classic and creative drinks. Sipping a cocktail (or mocktail) is that much more enjoyable when you’re facing a shimmering lagoon. And even more so when you know the herbs came right from the resort’s herb garden. The Bar is where you can sit, catch up, relax, and just appreciate the wonders of a holiday.


CAFÉ LUX*
Café
Regardless of the type of coffee drinker we may be, we can all agree on two things: great coffee and convenience. We have our very own in-house coffee brand, Café LUX*, and it just happens to be located right in the lobby (how convenient). There’s nothing like a coffee at check-in to fight jetlag after your flight. Pop by any time of the day to get your daily jolt of caffeine. We have pastries too!


BEACH DINING EXPERIENCES
The changing tides of our beach make it the ideal location for a pop-up dining experience. Think sunrise breakfast on a sandbank with your toes in the water or a fabulous beach barbecue under a starry sky.

SAMAA
Specialty Levantine Restaurant
Samāa is our exquisite Levantine restaurant set right on the beach under the open sky.

Ice cream parlour

There’s quite the selection so you can turn your ice cream into a sundae.
