“Emerald Resorts & Spas are located in places that are able to surprise and excite. Zanzibar is a one-of-a-kind destination, as unique as each of our resorts is,” explained Ermenegildo Scarapicchia, CEO of The Emerald Collection. “Every sensory experience – from the food to the architecture of the spaces – is designed to generate well-being, and imagined by combining the suggestions of the very rich local culture with the insights of architects and artists of food and hospitality from around the world.”

Located in the heart of the "land of the blacks," as the very etymology of the country's name recounts – "Zenj" means black, and "bar" means land – Zanzibar has a multifaceted African culture mixed with other cultures, mainly Persian, Arabic, and Indian,The new Resort mixes and accommodates these traditions with contemporary elements by combining different materials.To decorate and floor the various rooms of the facility, Atlas Concorde surfaces welcome visitors with the many nuances and textural effects of the collections and worlds of Atlas Concorde.
Emerald Zanzibar Resort is an exciting place, and the source of that excitement starts with nature, the ecosystem, local life, and the culture of those who have lived on that land for generations.
For this reason,” Ermenegildo Scarapicchia further explains, “we have always been careful to respect and defend the culture and biodiversity of places, and the Zanzibar resort is 100% plastic free, as well as having a supply system that limits the use of imports for both food and water as much as possible, which is recovered from the ocean, desalinated, purified and mineralized on site.

The Emerald Collection is an Italian business that is the result of the Scarapicchia family's foresight in choosing roads that are little traveled but with great potential that become real value. Italian character is conveyed in the ability to bring together different desires, expectations, cultures and suggestions, creating a place that makes everyone feel at home while naturally maintaining its own precise identity.
