beautiful resort worth every penny
I couldn't rate this place highly enough - the pictures online don't do it justice! Everything from the rooms, restaurants, pool and beach are designed beautifully and we loved how each cabin is really secluded in it's own little jungle. The food was delicious - especially in the a la carte dinner restaurant and overall the service was great. We will definitely be back in the future.

Tropical paradise!
Very, very nice! I've seen a fair share of high-end resorts and I can attest with confidence that Zuri truly is awesome! We stayed in a bungalow - it is very comfortable, clean, spacious, the terrace is lovely - facing the ocean and situated on a hillside so you catch the ocean breeze. The outside shower is amazing - you can see an attention to detail at every step. The resort has an abundance of tropical vegetation - a veritable garden of Eden! The food is pretty good but can get a bit boring after the 3rd day or so. The beach is very nice - just like in the pictures! The difference between high and low tide is small so you can swim all day. Overall - very nice and worth the money!
