Cape Town - Newmark Hotels, Reserves & Lodges has announced that it is opening an all new Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge, come 1 August.

Located on the west coast, the lodge is a 20-minute drive from Abeid Amani Karume International Airport and Stone Town - an ideal island getaway for South Africans.

According to Newmark’s Managing Director, Neil Markovitz, this "special addition" is a combination of unfiltered landscape with naturally aged ruins which creates a unique ambience that is contemporary African grunge.

"This is the distinct spirit of Zanzibar we wanted to capture and replicate at Chuini," says Markovitz.

'magical place'

“Chuini is a magical place where you can take a private boat tour departing from the lodge to an idyllic sandbank in the middle of the ocean for a barbeque and drinks," says Markovitz. "You can take a trip to the quaint yet iconic Stone Town where you will be mesmerised by the rich history and breath-taking architecture. Zanzibar is a place where the unknown creates the excitement."
