The Residence Zanzibar

Real beachside luxury for those seeking serenity and seclusion

The spirit of The Residence Zanzibar

Combining the many traditions that have influenced the colourful island of Zanzibar over the year, The Residence Zanzibar creates an elegant and sophisticated, yet casual, ambiance. Luxuriously appointed private villas merge contemporary style with reminders of the island’s varied heritage. Private decks open up onto large swimming pools, where wicker chairs and day beds create the ideal oasis from which to enjoy the spectacular views of a mile-long powdery white sand beach, flanked by coconut palms and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, complimentary wifi.

Mealtimes at The Residence’s two restaurants combine international cuisine with a hint of Zanzibari spice, as well as the best of Middle-eastern cooking. Fresh seafood is served at the poolside, on the sandy beach or even in the seclusion of your private villa. The Dining Room Bar hails back to old Persia with its hammered copper bar and local wood furnishings. A beautiful spa provides an exclusive menu of relaxing massages, while the Ohashiatsu Pavilion offers holistic wellness treatments. A wide selection of water sports is on hand to thrill and delight, while optional excursions can be arranged at an additional cost.
