Fifty minutes from exotic Stone Town and located on one of the finest beaches on the south-east coast of Zanzibar, Xanadu Villas offers a simple philosophy - and that is to celebrate life!
The retreat is devoted to providing a culinary safari for guests, and you are invited to fall in love with the food, culture and beauty of island living. You will have the opportunity to choose your own dining adventure, by deciding on your location for every meal. Dining in the restaurant with other guests, or nestled away in your private villa, or embracing the romantic beach or even carried away to a remote island - the experience is yours to create.
Guests can also enjoy range of activities from village and spice tours, where the local Zanzibari’s show their natural and cultural heritage, to adventures and water sports or a sunset cruise on Xanadu’s very own traditional Zanzibari Dhow. The Kiota Spa is nestled near the beach and offers manicures, pedicures and treatments either in the villas or the spa.
There are 6 villas in total, each with a unique set up and architecture. The villas surround a central pool and dining area, and are set within a tropical garden. Each villa is served by a private butler who will be there to assist you throughout the duration of your stay here. The villas can be rented individually, or the entire retreat is offered exclusively for up to 18 guests.
