Xanadu Villas & Retreat is on the south-east coast of Zanzibar and is the ideal choice for travelling families, honeymooners or friends in search of an island escape that promises privacy, seclusion and luxury.

At your luxury villa in Zanzibar there is a spa, which is nestled down by the beach, the perfect location for massages, manicures, pedicures and a range of treatments to nourish mind, body and soul. For a personalised experience, you can enjoy an in-room treatment. Ease into island life with every detail taken care of.

There are six luxury villas on offer, all varying in style, location and amenities and set within luscious gardens. Each villa is the epitome of space, has its own living area, kitchen - where your personal chef can prepare meals - and private plunge pools. Bathrooms are an extravagant affair and feature outdoor showers. All of the villas have direct beach access.


When you aren't cooling off in your private plunge pool or heading down to the beach from your villa, you enjoy the spacious lounge and living areas to catch up on some reading, or simply relaxing.

The spa will help you find that sweet spot of contentment, and your personal butler and chef are on hand to keep you pampered.


A resident chef is on hand at Xanadu Villas & Retreat, offering gourmet cuisine, all made to order. The cuisine takes its inspiration from the Swahili culture and the chef is a master blender of fresh, locally grown vegetables and herbs, freshly caught seafood and Zanzibar spices - all with international style flair.
