These charming ocean-side villas are located in a lush palm forest just 20km from Zanzibar’s historical capital of Stone Town. Spread over six hectares of beautiful tropical gardens, each of the seven secluded villas features its own gazebo-covered swimming pool and a pathway leading to a completely private beach. Once you are settled, your personal butler will see to it that each and every one of your needs is fulfilled, but will only enter the grounds at your request. The materials and colours used in the villas’ design are in harmony with the tropical African landscape, and the canvas prints adorning the walls brilliantly capture these natural surroundings. Whether an enthusiast of scuba diving, crystal-clear swimming or utter relaxation, Zanzi Resort is a serene island sanctuary where all your castaway dreams come true.
Start your day with a plate of blueberry pancakes ordered from your butler and served on the verandah overlooking your lush private garden. Meandering down the path to your secluded beach, stand on the shoreline and wait for the tide to wash up and cover your toes. An exhilarating reef dive puts you within touching distance of turtles, sharks, rays and a whole host of luminous fish which swim in their thousands among the magnificent coral formations. Lunch is served in the open-air thatched restaurant where you adore the chef’s Zanzibari-accented fish dish and take up his offer of a private demonstration of Zanzibari-style cooking. You then take the steady breeze in your sails and whip across the Indian Ocean on a kite board, soaking up your gorgeous surroundings. That evening an exquisite dinner of island-style grilled chicken is served with chilled champagne on your suite’s candlelit verandah
