The Residence Zanzibar
Inspired by the eclectic culture of the island, The Residence Zanzibar, managed by the international company Cenizaro, has become synonymous with an aristocratic holiday in Zanzibar.
- SPA treatments using ancient traditions
The complex consists of 66 villas, combining modern style with the elegance of the island s African, Omani and European heritage. The villas are surrounded by tropical gardens with a total area of 32 hectares and a one and a half kilometer long snow-white beach, gently sloping into the ocean. Each villa has its own terrace with wicker chairs and sun loungers and a private pool hidden behind palm trees from prying eyes: the ideal combination of space and privacy.
The hotel s SPA center is organically woven into the resort concept: each of the 6 treatment pavilions is equipped with a separate bath and rain shower, a garden and a private relaxation area. The spa menu has been developed by the British brand “ila” – which means “earth” in Sanskrit – using predominantly organic plant and mineral ingredients, the powerful healing properties of which underlie the creation of ideal conditions for well-being and moments of pleasure.
Flavour and taste come together in the resort s culinary pavilions: The Pavilion Restaurant features Indian, Arabic and Mediterranean influences in an atmosphere that transcends the food, while the Dining Room offers international cuisine infused with Zanzibar spices. The latter also has a bar with an excellent assortment of drinks for hot days and romantic evenings.
For active travelers, bicycle rental is available - it’s nice to ride through the lush gardens and explore the surrounding area, and, if desired, get to the town of Kizimkazi, known as "dolphin bay".
