The Residence Zanzibar in Zanzibar, Tanzania

As a cool breeze drifts across shimmering white sands, the Indian Ocean gently lapping against palm-lined shores, the sun dips down to touch the horizon as the true beauty of Zanzibar comes to life. As you gaze out over this breathtaking sight from the plush comforts of your private villa, The Residence Zanzibar settles you into life in the lap of luxury. On the island's southwest coast, just off the shores of Tanzania, this fabulous resort invites you to enjoy modern elegance and the serene beach atmosphere. Spacious villas are bright and inviting, with sliding glass doors creating a stylish and comfortable indoor-outdoor living space complete with plush sofas and enticing sunbeds. Elegant bathrooms offer breathtaking views through floor-to-ceiling windows as you soak in your stylish stand-alone tub, while personal butler service ensures your every desire. Soak in the sun on your gorgeous wood terrace, and cool off with a dip in your private pool; at The Residence Zanzibar life is truly this good.

With the sun warming the crystalline waters on your first morning, sit down to a delightful breakfast in The Dining Room and plan out the day's excitement. Pamper yourself with a trip to the spa and melt under the strong hands of a masseuse, or stroll down to the soft white sand beach and stretch out in the perfect spot. Venture out on the water for a scenic kayaking trip along the coast, or head out into the deep Indian Ocean for a day of sport fishing. Make time to explore the historic culture of Zanzibar with a visit to Stone Town, and discover amazing local markets and the fascinating world of the spice trade with a tour of the island's spice farms. In the afternoon, delight in a nature hike and tour through the lush Jozani Forest Reserve, or enjoy a relaxing cruise as you look for pods of dolphins playing along the coast. Later that night, sit down to a fabulous dinner of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavors at The Pavilion Restaurant and watch the stars shimmer over the ocean. As you breath in the crisp, salt-tinged air, relax to the sound of waves rolling ashore and enjoy an evening of beauty at The Residence Zanzibar.

From the first moments of arrival until goodbyes, our experience at The Residence Zanzibar was truly fantastic. We spent 10 unforgettable nights here with a big group of friends. 6 days were dedicated to a training programme. We were truly lucky to discover that The Residence Zanzibar had everything we needed for this trip - located on an exotic beach, accommodating its guests in exquisite villas with private pools, the hotel has also got a perfect venue for events of any size. Their restaurant The Pavilion can be transformed into a beautiful and secluded event location, with perfect acoustics for any type of music, own kitchen and an amazing outside patio for breaks, meals and drinks.The management and staff really took time and effort to ensure we were happy with all details and 100% comfortable. The Pavilion is surrounded by a marvellous garden and when the moonlight appears in the evening hours, we really felt like we were in a fairy tale. We were relaxed and carefree indeed, as we had the best team taking care of us. The villas, restaurants, swimming pools, gardens, bikes and golf cars, the beach with its magnificent jetty - the entire property is very well maintained. All staff without exception are punctual, always care for quality and able to deliver as promised (and often exceed expectations!). We were a big group and majority of us do not even speak English - and nevertheless the team of The Residence Zanzibar managed to make each and every person happy, relaxed, immersed in luxury and beauty. Management, reception, restaurant, catering, spa specialists, security, water sports, housekeeping, concierges - everyone at The Residence Zanzibar works very hard, are always polite, open, ready to listen and assist. The quality of food during our lunches, coffee breaks and dinners was great, always fresh, never repetitive- which deserves a special applause, especially considering the remote location on an island of Zanzibar! Everyone in the group just loved starting the day with a breakfast at the Dining Room terrace, then relaxing around the impressive infinity pool, and joining a special evening entertainment, for example a beach dinner with an energetic local live music band and a beach bonfire. When you stay at The Residence Zanzibar, be sure to go on Safari Blue; we had the most awesome time doing this snorkelling & sand bank trip organised by the hotel. Imagine an island in the middle of the ocean, just perfect white sand, surrounded by crystal waters - those waters start rising in the afternoon, eventually making the island disappear entirely . Well, imagine how surprised we all were when we were greeted by the team on this sand bank! They went ahead of us, and while we were sailing and snorkelling, they set up a summer terrace on the island. They even brought barbecue stations and cooked a delicious lunch for us. Well, if this team is able to realise this kind of magic very smoothly, this means they will always manage to make their guests happy! All in all, we are very thankful to absolutely everyone at The Residence Zanzibar for their smiles, their patience, flexibility, kindness, hard work, for welcoming us like family and making The Residence our home in Zanzibar. Asanteni sana and until the next time!!!

Stayed here for 10 days very relaxing .Slight issue with food arrangements till we discovered we could have something else off another menu ,Accomodation and resort absolutely 5 staff outstanding never stop working .The hotel itself is a bit remote taxis into stone town or any where are very expensive Ā£80 to go to stone towns to do a bit of shopping .Dont be misled about the complementary water it is only free in your room you have to pay 5 US dollar for a bottle in the restaurant this adds up to a lot at the end of your holiday .The only complaint we had was thereā€™s not a place to eat smoke free every time we sat down someone came along and started to smoke we were very uncomfortable about that

Wauw what an experience we had at The Residence. Everything starts with the reception when you arrive, friendly, open, warm. Afterwards it only went better and better. Fantastic villa with swimming pool, clean, big nice furniture. And then the staff. Super friendly, warm and nothing is too much. A wonderful lobster dinner at the rock made it complete. Thank you all for making our holiday a fantastic experience. Special thanks to David Mutemi and the complete staff of the restaurant. Assante Sana. Hakuna Matata.
