About the Hotel
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.
