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 south-west 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. Contemporary decor fused with African, Omani and European design elements characterise each of the resort's 66 ultra-luxurious villas.

Luxury Garden Pool villas are set in the hotel's lush grounds, surrounded by beautiful gardens and coconut palms, and Luxury Ocean Front Pool villas are located just steps from the pristine, white-sand beach. Both feature a large living room leading out to a private pool, as well as a lovely outdoor deck and a private shower garden.

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.


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.


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.
