Azao Resort & Spa

Zanzibar, Tanzania

Deluxe Ocean Front room

Blissful beach stay at stylish spa resort on the Tanzanian archipelago of Zanzibar - with choice of board and room type

For those seeking laid-back beach glamour on the Tanzanian archipelago of Zanzibar, this chic resort lures with a spot-on location right by the sugary white sands and glistening blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Best of all, you’ll be just an hour’s drive from the UNESCO-listed capital of Stone Town, should you fancy losing yourself in the labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.

The mix of classic and contemporary décor that reveals itself on arrival continues in the luxe guest rooms - all of which have high wooden ceilings, marble flooring, and large glass windows to frame postcard-perfect views of the natural surrounding landscape. Expect large beds dressed with mosquito nets, lovely bathrooms worth whiling the hours away in, and an above-average amount of creature comforts to complete your stay.

Elsewhere, you’ll find an outdoor pool with swim-up bar, well-equipped gym with free weights and cardio machines, and spa with treatment rooms for all sorts of spirit-soothing pampering. Equally impressive are the dining options, most fabulously the all-day buffet restaurant for ingredient-driven international cuisine and the relaxed shisha lounge for puffing away on a hookah pipe.
