The Residence Zanzibar


The Residence Zanzibar Location Map

Set in isolated splendour on the south-west coast of Zanzibar Island, The Residence Zanzibar lies on a mile-long powdery white sand beach, flanked by coconut palm trees and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Located just 55 minutes from the airport and the capital Stone Town, and within 32 hectares of pristine land once occupied by Shirazi princes, The Residence Zanzibar is truly a dream fit for a Sultan.

A stay here offers you a wide variety of activities. The hotel features a glass walled swimming pool overlooking the ocean, an air-conditioned fitness centre and flood-lit tennis court. Dependent upon the tides, complimentary non-motorised watersports are available. The village of Kizimkazi, famous for its dolphin safaris, is also just 20 minutes away.

A gastronomic journey can be enjoyed in the 2 restaurants or in the intimacy of your villa. The Dining Room offering international dishes with a hint of Zanzibar 'spice', and The Pavilion Restaurant showcases the best of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine.

The hotel's star attraction is The Spa, which features 6 pavilions and a rest area with a whirlpool nested amongst 2 hectares of surrounding tropical gardens. The Spa blends seamlessly into the natural landscape providing the perfect escape for rejuvenating the mind, body and soul.

The 66 villas are luxuriously appointed with contemporary, stylish furniture reminding guests of the island's African and Omani heritage.  A private butler is on hand to attend to your requests.

On the deck outside, overlooking your private swimming pool, wicker chairs and day beds are ideal to relax in and enjoy the views. Bicycles are provided with each villa to explore the gardens and local area.
