Perched atop a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean framed by coconut palms, Zawadi is the perfect place to dust off and relax after a safari adventure. With each of the 12 spacious villas designed in an elegant yet laid-back beach style, this intimate retreat is one of the most coveted hotels in Zanzibar.
Relax next to the pool while enjoying a chilled drink and watching the dhows with their white sails glide along the horizon or go snorkeling off the shores of the white sandy beach. Guests can also look forward to sailing, boat trips, diving and kite surfing. Those seeking a more cultural experience can learn to play bao, a traditional Swahili game, or take part in palm weaving, coconut harvesting or a cooking class with the hotel’s chefs.
With a prime position on the southeast coast of Zanzibar, just an hour’s drive from Abeid Amani Karume International Airport and with a minimum guest age of 16, Zawadi is best suited to indulgent, romatic getaways.
