    Introduction

    Sitting on Zanzibar's east coast Qambani is a barefoot chic boutique hotel right on the tip of a secluded peninsula. There's plenty of space for couples and families at Qambani as it has only 7 spacious thatched villas to share two swimming pools, inside and outside livings spaces and lush tropical gardens enveloped by the balmy tropical air.

    Qambani is fully staffed, including a manager, housekeepers, chef and driver. Both the menus and service are totally bespoke and organised around your plans for the day.

    Activities
    Qambani has the luxury of space, both inside and outside. A huge living room is at the heart of the property and extends out along the garden with sun-soaked terraces. On one side is the airy dining room, behind which is the kitchen and entertainment room. The gym and hammam open out onto a tropical courtyard.

    There are two swimming pools surrounded by lush tropical gardens and the Indian Ocean is just a stroll through the grounds down five wooden steps. From June to November, a miles-long white sand beach curls around the headland. From December to May, a smaller beach is just 10 minutes walk away on the coral at low tide.
    Dining

    Your stay at Qambani is on a Full Board basis. This includes all meals, on demand, with choices discussed daily with the chef who uses the freshest local ingredients, including catch of the day. You can choose from a variety of dishes including European, African and Asian. Bottled water and hot drinks are included but soft drinks, spirits, cocktails, vintage wines and champagnes are an additional charge.
