The discount:

We advertise this offer at up to 14% off. We calculate this discount percentage based on the rates we offer compared to a price check of other online travel providers offering the same product and travel date. An example of our maximum discount is:

On 21/06/2019, leaving from London Gatwick, two people may book a five-night stay in a Luxury Garden Pool villa (inclusions as noted above) and will pay £1,469 per person, per stay, compared to a third party online rate of £1,709 per person, per stay. Based on this calculation, by booking with Secret Escapes, you will save 14%.

The discounts, price and availability stated above were checked on 03/12/2018.

Due to fluctuations in other travel providers’ prices, the discount advertised will not always be the same discount on the “from” price.

The lead price shown is subject to availability, which will naturally decrease during the course of a sale as the relevant dates are booked.

The offer is 100% non-refundable and date changes are not possible once the booking has been made.

Escape to an exotic island paradise off the idyllic coast of Tanzania with ocean views and a private pool villa, including breakfast, dinner, one lunch and a massage, plus travel and airport lounge access

Cherished by luxury-seekers for its sparkling beaches, UNESCO-listed capital, grand colonial architecture and new wave of upscale hotels, the Tanzanian archipelago of Zanzibar is one of the coolest picks for a tropical island adventure. So the location for The Residence Zanzibar couldn’t be more on-point - right on a white sand beach in the southwest of the island.

An obvious choice for those who like their five-star boutique sleeps laid-back yet effortlessly stylish, there is much here to wow. Each of the villas is finished to a very high spec, but it’s the extras that really impress - mostly the private pools, canopied king-size beds, private gardens with outdoor showers, and furnished decks with sun loungers, umbrellas and daybeds.

Diversions here are plentiful. Laze on the glittering white sand, kick back with cocktails on your terrace, borrow a resort bike to explore the local area, or enjoy top-to-toe pampering in one of the groovy-looking spa pavilions. There are also two unique restaurants: The Dining Room for international cuisine infused with Zanzibar spices, and Pavilion for delicious gourmet fare with Indian, Arabic and Mediterranean influences. Unsurprisingly, The Residence Zanzibar is a 2018 TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice pick among Tanzania's top 10 luxury hotels on the site.

Good to know

Dining

Palate-pleasing cuisine is available at two restaurants: The Dining Room for international cooking infused with Zanzibar spices, and Pavilion for gourmet fare with Indian, Arabic and Mediterranean influences. There’s also the sea-facing Dining Room Bar for daytime drinks and sundowners, as well as a beach or poolside menu for salads, fresh seafood, fritters and pasta dishes – all of which can be delivered straight to your sun lounger. For those who want more privacy, the resort can arrange in-villa dining or private barbecues on the jetty. The Residence is also on hand to help you up the romance with a private, candle-lit beach dinner.

Spa

Tucked away in the tropical gardens, the show-stopping spa has a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi as well as six spacious treatment pavilions that have their own private garden with shower and relaxation area. Signature customised therapies and treatments (using ila spa products) and African beautifying rituals include massages, facials, body exfoliation, manicures, pedicures, waxing, and make-up. The spa opens daily from 10am to 8pm.

Location

Set on a white-sand beach along Zanzibar’s southwestern coast, the hotel has the glittering Indian Ocean waters on its doorstep. You’ll be only a 20-minute walk from the village of Kizimkazi and just over an hour's drive from Stone Town – the UNESCO-listed capital. Here you can learn about the Zanzibar’s sultans at the imposing Palace Museum, quench your thirst with freshly-squeezed sugarcane juice at Forodhani food market, take a dhow cruise at sunset, and seek out Freddie Mercury’s former home on Kenyatta Road.

For further thrills, take a guided tour of a spice farm, visit the tortoise sanctuary on Prison Island, and meet rare Kirk's Red Colobus monkeys at Jozani Forest Reserve – Zanzibar’s only national park. The Residence Zanzibar is an hour’s drive from Zanzibar International Airport.
