Kilindi Zanzibar, comprising of a series of white-domed Pavilion guest rooms all set in 50 acres of lush tropical gardens, is a rarity in the world of luxury boutique hotels. Originally designed for Benny Andersson - one of the members of the 1970s pop group Abba - Kilindi achieves the perfect marriage between Scandinavian minimalism and the dramatic architectural overtones of Middle Eastern heritage, whilst encouraging an open 'barefoot and back-to-nature' ambiance throughout.
Kilindi provides a variety of intimate dining possibility, from the absolute privacy of your pavilion to a table on the pristine white beach which runs the length of the property.
A 'waterfall' bar with the Main Pavilion overlooks a large 25 metre infinity pool which itself affords views out across the sparkling warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
Tucked away in a peaceful corner of Kilindi’s tropical gardens is the Kilindi Spa, offering a range of treatments in a serene and elegant setting to improve well-being and enhance relaxation.
Guest can enjoy a range of activities including diving, snorkelling, spice farm tours, a visit to Stone Town and dhow cruises all of which can be arranged by the hotel at an additional cost.
In each of the 15 Pavilion Suites, white wooden-slatted shutters embrace wide-arched glassless windows each affording spectacular views over the Indian Ocean. This same openness allows the gentle ocean breeze to waft throughout each of the rooms and carry with it the delightful soundtrack of Kilindi's colourful birdlife. Each Pavillion is set in its own private tropical gardens and served by a dedicated butler
The Pavilions also have their very own private plunge pool, and a separate but extraordinary 'rainfall' shower room, which provide not only a spectacular view to the Ocean but the liberating sensation of being 'at one with nature'.
All meals; soft drinks, beer, house wine and selected spirits; paddle boarding and kayaking; and a laundry service are included. PLEASE NOTE: The rate excludes the USD 5.00 per person per night Infrastructure Levy - this is payable directly to the hotel IN CASH upon check out.
Children aged 16 years and older are welcome.
