Unrivalled views of the Indian Ocean at Zawadi Hotel

Zawadi Hotel

An elegantly understated beach hotel at one of the most coveted locations on the island of Zanzibar

The spirit of Zawadi Hotel

Framed by swaying coconut palms and colourful bougainvillea, the stylish Zawadi Hotel sits on a cliff with breath-taking, unrivalled views of the Indian Ocean stretching as far as the eye can see. At the centre of this beautiful property the cliff recedes, creating a striking cove where pristine white sand meets the warm waters of the sea. Here guests can sunbathe, swim or go snorkelling straight from the beach. With only nine spacious villas, this intimate beach getaway offers relaxed luxury at its best. Each ensuite villa comes with a free-standing bath, walk-in shower and double vanity, as well as a comfortable seating area, a huge double bed and an airy private terrace bordered by lush bougainvillea and palm trees.

Along with swimming and snorkelling in the lagoon, water sports can easily be arranged with boat trips for snorkelling or diving on the reefs nearby, and sailing and kite surfing in season. Guests can also indulge in spa treatments on the terrace of their villas, and enjoy deliciously fresh cuisine and cocktails at either the beach bar, the casually elegant dining room or the laid-back lounge area. With its picture perfect location, warm hospitality, easy-going ambience and deliciously fresh local cuisine, Zawadi Hotel offers guests an idyllic island escape.
