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.

What can I say about this resort apart from ‘Paradise’, my wife and I chose this resort for our honeymoon and we weren’t disappointed!! We stayed for two weeks which I think is more than most but delighted to say we didn’t get bored with the food which is of very high quality with plenty of choice for all tastes. The General manager Bruce and Restaurant manager Raul made a point of interacting with all guests during meal times ensuring we had anything we needed and if not they arranged without issue!! All the other staff are friendly, inviting and catering for all, chucking in some Swahili lesson during your stay!!! The whole resort is clean and well presented, the villas stunning and view from the main pool and loungers is amazing !! The access road is long and bumpy but well worth it for what you get at the end, Thank you to all at The Residence

We stayed for a week having been traveling in Rwanda and Uganda in fairly basic accommodation. We were looking for a bit of luxury and The Residence certainly met all our expectations. We took the fully inclusive option and were very pleased that we did as the hotel is isolated down a long unmade road so getting anywhere takes time. The service throughout the hotel is excellent with very friendly and helpful staff. We were very impressed with the General Manager, Bruce, who came around each morning at Breakfast to talk to the guests. The villas are very spacious and well equipped with large bathroom and a very comfortable bed! The main restaurant, The Dining Room, offered excellent food and was all waiter service, apart from breakfast. All too often, all inclusive relies on buffets which is something we did not want. There is a buffet restaurant as well together with special dinners served on the beach. To get around the resort, bikes are provided. An excellent holiday and we would like to try The Residence in other locations.

What can I say about this place. Truly the most relaxing romantic and friendly place we have ever visited. We were here for 8 nights and we genuinely hated leaving, The staff are what make this place so special. Every single staff member welcomes you with a smile or an enthusiastic 'jambo!' Our villa was private with private pool which really made it so easy to relax and the villa has flat screen Tv which allowed me to watch live football when i got the chance. :) Catherine who served us at breakfast every morning and Mike every evening went out of their way to spend time getting to know us and even teach us some swahili. Mike even gave us both a small gift before we left which I thought was the kindest sincere thing ever. Executive chef Louis and Restaurant manager Raul went above and beyond to satisfy our sometimes awkward food requests and it was never a problem. I could name another 20 staff just picking these in particular. If you are reading this wondering whether you should visit here please do I promise you wont regret it. Bruce you are running a Top class resort here, congrats to you and all your staff and thank you for a dream honeymoon.

I stayed at the Residence last week for a pre bridal party and to be honest this was the best choice we could have made. We stayed together in a 2 bedroom garden villa with our own plunge pool and that gave us all the privacy we wanted. The general manager Bruce took personal care of us including all the other staff at the Residence. We will definitely return!
