The Emerald Collection will open a new beachside resort, the Emerald Zanzibar Resort & Spa, by next June.

Located in Matemwe, on Zanzibar's northeast coast, the five-star resort will be set on the white-sand Muyuni Beach. All 250 rooms offer a cozy and relaxed ambience with a modern, comfortable style.

The resort will feature four distinctively different restaurants, a Beach Grill & Bar and the two bars (the Garden Pool Bar, the Main Pool Bar). Guests will also be able to enjoy free access to the fitness center, including a gym equipped with the latest Technogym machines as well as two tennis courts.

"We are excited to return to Zanzibar, where we have managed several owned and nonowned resorts for years, thus consolidating the presence of our brand internationally," said Ermenegildo Scarapicchia, CEO of the Emerald Collection.
