The archipelago of Zanzibar is located in the Indian Ocean, about 25 miles from the Tanzanian coast. This small paradise island is 60 miles long and 20 miles wide, occupying a total area of approximately 650 square miles. Come to explore its beautiful sandy beaches with fringing coral reefs, and the magic of the historical Stone Town - said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa.
We carefully select our hotels visiting each property and researching it in great detail before ever sending a client. Our hotels are hand-picked for their unparalleled accommodation, cuisine and facilities as well as first-class service.
Lost in the small archipelago of Zanzibar, The Residence offers a unique experience of luxury and relaxation in the vast Indian Ocean
Zanzibar's brilliant white beaches lapped by the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean provide the perfect place to relax, soak up the sun and take a break from some busy sightseeing. The hotel's spa is its self-proclaimed 'star attraction', made up of six pavilions nestled in 5 acres of tropical gardens. You can't help but feel completely at ease in this breathtaking setting as you settle down for a massage or a facial. The Residence's own 150m jetty is the perfect place to head out and see what you can see in the crystal clear waters by day, or take a romantic moonlit walk in the evening. Once a week the jetty is transformed into the perfect sunset lounge bar, where ice-cold cocktails and delicious canapes are served. And if you're after a little more action there are plenty of excursions on offer, like a trip to the ancient Stone Town, which is the vibrant cultural heart of Zanzibar and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Discover also the Jozani Natural Forest Reserve or Prison Island, ideal for snorkelling and a chance to swim alongside giant tortoises.
