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 we say! We had an amazing and wonderful 10 night holiday at The Residence in Zanzibar. From checking in to the last evening we were spoilt and pampered everyday. On our last evening we had a surprise meal on the beach to celebrate our anniversary and our bedroom was adorned with candles and flowers when we got back after dinner. We do not have enough words to explain how kind and welcoming the staff were. Dinner every evening was varied with different theme of foods. This was accompanied by different live entertainment every evening. From management down, each and every staff member made our stay so special. We were spoilt with special foods being made specially for us like masala chai and Mandazi. The staff fulfilled our every desire from food to helping the local community school. Thank you all especially ( in no order) GM Bruce, Bashir, Raul, David, Harish, Masood, Adam, Masemo, Beatrice, Gemma, Joyce, Ades, Juma, Wambura , Kherie, Boniface, Mike, John, Jonathon, Yassin, Josephine, Edith and her team, Dr David and so many, many more. Thank you all for an amazing time. We hope to be back next year. šŸ˜Š

After a week's vacation at the Residence Zanzibar, as a couple who usually travels the world, in five-star hotels. This place surpasses all of them, the mix of a large village where separate villas are used as hotel rooms, much of them on the waterline, a wonderful idea, clean landscaping, a jungle idea that flows neatly into an interesting area. The level of luxury, the quality of the beautiful materials, the clean wood design, the quality sheets, the highest quality service we encountered. The management of the place tries to meet all the guests' needs in every field. A wonderful beach. The waterfalls are included in the bridal, professional beach team. A food and beverage manager named Raul, an amazing man who will always be there for you, the hotel manager Bruce, an impressive man. So what are you waiting for, the endless swimming pool awaits you, the spectacular spa, the staff. We'll be back there soon, we promise

We went there with our kid who loved the place. They made special arrangements for our kids which is highly appreciated. The room was well maintained. If we needed something we just needed to ask. The restaurant manager was really helpful, his name is Rahul. The view was great. Thanks to the team , keep up the good work.

This was the first time we stayed at the Zanzibar. Booked in their Suite, i knew there will be something special in store Turns out -- i am right. The check in was a breeze. The suite in which we checked into, was amazing. The staff are known for being there pillars. My personal experience is they surely are. Special thanks to Rahul Dutta for making the stay very comfortable. Now to the breakfast -- it surely has some really mouth watering dishes for you. Once again, the service there is amazing. All in all -- we are extremely happy with our choice and would love to visit them sometime soon.
