The Residence Zanzibar

The Residence Zanzibar is one of the most luxurious resorts on the Zanzibar, with sister properties in Mauritius, Maldives and Tunisia.  This large resort is located in the south west of the island, which is not necessarily best known for its beaches, however, with each room coming with its own private infinity pool it doesn’t really matter!  A choice of excellent restaurants, top end service and an array of activities- all in all, a top quality resort on Zanzibar.  A close contender to Baraza.

The Residence Zanzibar - The Facts 

The Residence Zanzibar is a super luxury resort located on the south west of the island, approximately one hour from Stone Town, where the airport is for the island.  The resort is near the Kizimkazi which is a fishing village and a good spot to swim with dolphins off the coast.

The resort is large with 66 villas, spa, reception area, kids club, two restaurants and bar areas.  The resort is spread out over a large area and the best way to get around is on a golf cart or bicycle supplied by the lodge.  The centre area of the lodge is around a huge infinity pool, with plenty of sun loungers and space to relax with a drink near by, perfect for a Tanzania Family Holiday.

There are 66 villas in total, 34 Luxury Garden Pool Villas with one bedroom, 13 Luxury Ocean Front Pool Villas with one bedroom, 11 Prestige Ocean Front Pool Villas with one bedroom, 5 Frangipani Garden Pool Villas with two bedrooms, 2 Frangipani Ocean Front Pool Villas with two bedrooms, 1 Presidential Villa with two bedrooms.

The villas are very spacious with modern finishes to a very high level.  There is the option to eat meals on your veranda or in the villa itself if you wish. There is a water sports centre where you can arrange to hire kayaks, small sailing boats and arrange diving and snorkelling trips.

The Residence is probably our most popular 5 star luxury resort for a Zanzibar honeymoon.
