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.

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.

We enjoyed a fantastic four-night stay here as a family. Beautiful, high-quality villa with a good-sized private pool. The food was superb: from the delicious buffet breakfast to the excellent themed evening dinners, the food was always excellent and the choice impressively varied. There is an lovely feeling of serenity throughout the hotel, and loads of great facilities (bikes, gym, spa, table tennis etc). But above all else, the staff of the Residence make staying here an utter joy. They are warm, friendly, fun and great at their jobs. A truly memorable experience, and we would love to go back.

They say a tinge of warm hospitality accompanied with sophisticated services instigates you to extend your holiday most of the time.Fortunately that's what happened back then during my stay with family out here.That limited opportunity turned out to be deliciously ecstatic due to the sheer breathtaking elegance of the place.From the very beginning We were enamoured by the impeccable behaviour of the staff right from the chef to the masseuse.And of course the oh-so adorable General Manager made us feel like we were home.I could anyday return & enjoy his company over those mesmerizing cocktails by the bar-tender just for his antics.During the private poolside dining in the midst of a breathtaking sunset ambience I realized such a dining experience happens to be possible on such a spiritual level.Besides,sophisticated amenities & state of the art rooms,we peacefully enjoyed the Pavillion Restaurant serving an array of exotic cuisines along the white sand beach with the Indian Ocean on the other side approaching you with its waves.While it was time to bid adieu, I certainly was intoxicated by the romance of it's unusual existence.
