The Residence Zanzibar

Escape to The Residence Zanzibar for a unique East African experience.

Stay in one of the 66 stylishly appointed villas with private pools and easy access to the mile-long powdery beach. Decorated to reflect the island’s African and Omani heritage, villas feature four-poster beds, traditional furnishings, crisp linens and bathrooms with free-standing baths. A team of butlers can be spotted traversing the grounds on traditional tricycles, providing complimentary service and attentive hospitality. Regional, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines are served in The Dining Room and The Pavilion Restaurant, whilst relaxed daytime dining can be enjoyed by the glass-walled pool or on the beach. For wellness enthusiasts, relaxing spa treatments take place in six pavilions set amid the beautiful gardens, enveloping guests in peace and calm. Guests can also choose from an array of activities and excursions, from kayaking and tennis at the resort to a Red Colobus Monkey and Dolphin Safari at the Jozani Natural Forest Reserve.
