The Residence Zanzibar

Set in isolated splendour on the south west coast of the island, on 32 hectares of pristine land once occupied by the Shirazi Princes, The Residence Zanzibar is simply wonderful.

The residence is just 55 minutes from the airport and the capital Stone Town, on a mile-long powdery white sand beach flanked by coconut palms and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

The village of Kizimkazi, famous for its dolphin safaris, is close by.

All 66 sandstone villas are luxuriously appointed, their contemporary, stylish furniture a constant reminder of the island's African and Omani heritage - and all have private swimming pools.

This luxurious all-villa resort is a proud member of Leading Hotels of the World - the only member in Tanzania.
