The Residence Zanzibar is the latest luxury resort to open in the southwest part of the island. Set on a mile of powdery white sand beach and flanked by tall palm trees, the hotel appropriately complements its breathtaking location in a magnificent lagoon.
Behind the interiors and architecture of this all-villa resort is a leading global design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates, whose designers drew their inspiration from the various influences in Zanzibar’s rich cultural history.
Set among 32 hectares of tropical gardens, all of the 66 stand-alone, luxuriously appointed villas are simple, airy and contemporary. Stylishly furnished in a fusion of African and Omani décor, each villa feature all modern amenities, including huge bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers and private infinity pool next to a veranda with sun beds.
The hotel combines the island’s exotic history with sophisticated elegance, distinctive ambience and a casual atmosphere.
The mile-long beach and pool area offer plenty of opportunities to relax; as does the Spa with its six treatment pavilions, nestled among the beautiful gardens. Each luxuriously appointed pavilion leads directly onto a private garden with outdoor shower, bathtub and a lounge area. The hotel has two restaurants and a pool-side snack bar, as well as two bars. The Residence Zanzibar is the only hotel in Tanzania boasting membership of the Leading Hotels of the World.
