Found on the south west coast of Zanzibar, The Residence has an exclusively isolated location for pure luxury and rejuvenation, alongside the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The Residence consists of 66 luxurious villas appointed with contemporary, stylish furniture, reflected by their African and Omani heritage. Each villa is complete with satellite TV, CD/DVD player, mini bar, direct dial telephone, hairdryer, mosquito nets, personal safe, tea and coffee making facilities, broadband internet access, air-conditioning and overhead fans in the living room and bedrooms.

The deck overlooks your very own private swimming pool, and a day bed where you can relax and unwind just as you imagined.

The array of dining options is fantastic, with two restaurants and in-villa dining options, offering international dishes with a hint of Zanzibar “spice”, and the best of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine.

The Spa houses 6 pavilions and a rest area with a whirl pool all within the beautiful surroundings of a tropical garden. The Spa blends seamlessly into the natural landscape providing the perfect escape for rejuvenating the mind, body and soul. In tradition with The Residence Hotels, the spa harmoniously combines the highest quality treatments with an unmatched expertise in service offering a range of beauty philosophies tailored for total relaxation and pure indulgence.

There are also many activities and facilities at the resort including 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 water sports are available from the Boat House, which draws its inspiration from a traditional dhow, or directly from The Jetty. The water sports include kite-surfing, deep sea fishing, dhow cruises and scuba-diving for all levels of experience. The Residence is also only 20 minutes away from the village of Kizimkazi – famous for its dolphin safaris!

Other excursions include a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stone Town with its uniquely bustling markets and winding alleyways for a great authentic cultural experience. Why not visit a Spice Plantation to discover the history of Zanzibar and explore the many spices of nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper and many others?

The kids club is a great option for families. The Residence Zanzibar takes great care in looking after your little ones, giving you the time to relax and unwind! Open 8am to 8pm, the club offers activities for children ages 3 to 12 years, and children have the unique opportunity to learn Swahili, take bicycles around the area, and compete in volley ball tournaments, for a full day of fun.
