The Residence is located on the southwest of Zanzibar Island, approximately one hour from Stone Town, near the authentic fishing village of Kizimkazi. The resort offers a “tropical paradise” of white sandy beaches, coral reefs and the alluring warm waters of the Indian Ocean, along with a cultural experience that highlights the island’s unique melting pot of African, Indian and Arabian influences.
The resort is set within 80 acres of tropical gardens, leading onto a pristine mile-long beach. Its 66 luxuriously appointed villas fuse contemporary style with the exoticism of the island’s rich cultural heritage. Each villa has a private furnished deck, complete with day bed and large plunge pool, overlooking the beach, garden or ocean, and serviced by an attentive butler
The spacious airy main area is comprised of gleaming hardwood and marble and boasts a large swimming pool. Savor a taste of the Spice Island’s unique blend of cultures and cuisines at one of the resort’s two restaurants, or in the privacy of your villa. The Dining Room offers international dishes peppered with a hint of Zanzibar “spice,” while Indian, Arabic and Mediterranean influences are at play in the atmospheric Pavilion Restaurant, filled with the warmth and colors of Zanzibar. Lunch may be taken at the beach, or poolside, with a selection of lighter fare available. Enjoy “sundown” cocktails around the pool, on the pontoon boat, or step back into colonial splendor and follow Dr. Livingstone’s journey to the Library Bar.
The expansive property can be explored along numerous footpaths using the bicycles that are provided at each villa. The Spa, nestled into a lush garden setting, features six spacious treatment pavilions, and a relaxation area with a whirlpool, sauna and steam room. Organic plant and mineral ingredients are incorporated into a range of therapeutic and luxurious offerings.
