Luxury Ocean Front Pool villa



Luxury Garden Pool villa


Escape to an exotic island paradise off the idyllic coast of Tanzania with private pool villas, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and oceanfront villa options

  • The Residence Zanzibar lies within 79 acres of lush, tropical gardens, where you’ll be free to become one with the palpably tranquil vibe of this incredible island. Bike around the grounds, wander the sugar-white beaches or up the ante with an island safari, a day scuba diving or an evening of traditional Taarab music and dance.

  • Grab a daytime drink or get fresh seafood delivered straight to your sun lounger at the beach or pool. In the evenings, two restaurants at The Residences showcase Zanzibari, Indian and Arabic-influenced cuisine and for those who want more privacy, there’s in-villa dining, private barbecues on the jetty and candle-lit beach dinners.

  • Tucked away in the tropical gardens, the show-stopping spa has a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi as well as six spacious treatment pavilions. Signature customised therapies and treatments (using ila spa products) and African beautifying rituals include massages, facials, body exfoliation, manicures, pedicures, waxing, and make-up.
