Authentic, magnificent, vibrant - this stunning boutique hotel in Zanzibar ticks all the boxes for a romantic escape. For a start, the villas are not only nestled on the edge of the hotel’s 15-acre forested gardens, but they also enjoy captivating views out over the Indian Ocean.
It’s not just the diverse views that are set to allure; Zanzi Resort comprises of just thirteen private villas, ensuring both a secluded and quiet feel, while also providing all the creature comforts of a boutique hotel.
Each of the villas is an eye-catching array of colourful artwork, characterful thatched roofing and reddish brown woods - not to mention the carefully manicured gardens surrounding them. Whether you’re visiting with your loved one, with friends or with the family - paradise can be found here for everyone.
The menu at the hotel restaurant blends African specialities and international cuisine, so there’s something to please both the adventurous and fussier palette. All dishes are created using locally sourced produce where possible.
There’s no need for early starts here, with an all-day breakfast served whenever you fancy it. Breakfast is included in most room rates (see rate detail below).
Pick from thirteen lovely villas, which have all been decorated in an authentic African style. While some feature intricate local art, other have handcrafted headboards or white-curtained four-poster beds. Speaking of beds, they’re kitted out with premium mattresses - perfect for even the lightest of sleepers. Bathrooms are just as lovely, with local décor and spotless facilities. Family villas are available.
Those wishing to work on their tan are in for a bit of a treat; sunbathe on the powder-soft beaches or laze by the pool - some villas even have their own private ones. As if that weren’t relaxation enough, there is also a fantastic spa here offering a range of massages and treatments.
