Prestige Ocean Front Pool villa


Luxury Ocean Front Pool villa

Escape to an exotic island paradise off the idyllic coast of Tanzania with ocean views and a private pool villa, including breakfast, lunch and a massage

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 this top-end villa resort 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 66 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 sands, 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.
