In the southwest corner of Zanzibar just 55 minutes from the island’s UNESCO World Heritage capital Stone Town, The Residence Zanzibar stretches along a kilometre of stunning coastline flanked by coconut palms and the Indian Ocean. A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, it opened in 2011 with 66 villas, each with its own swimming pool, terrace and traditional bicycles for guests to use around the property. The villas reflect Zanzibar’s melting pot of cultures – Swahili, Omani, British and Indian – and provide guests with an unquestionable feeling of luxury and privacy. At the heart of the hotel is the large pool and The Spa, set in five acres of private gardens and offering treatments from organic spa brand, ila. The hotel has two restaurants serving international dishes and daily buffets of Middle-Eastern, Turkish, Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, a kids club and a range of complimentary sports including kayaks, pedal boats, hobie cats and snorkelling excursions. Dolphin safaris and a visit to see the indigenous Red Colobus monkeys in the nearby Jozani Forest are unforgettable Zanzibari nature experiences.
