Xanadu Villas | Zanzibar

Xanadu is a new and welcome addition to Zanzibar, a boutique property with 6 beautiful private villas. Situated on the South East Coast of Zanzibar, Xanadu has a beautiful private beach and views over the Indian Ocean. 

Xanadu Resort - The Facts 

Xanadu is situated on the South East Coast of Zanzibar on a beautiful stretch of beach, just South of the luxury Baraza Lodge. It is relatively new but establishing a quick name for itself as one of the best luxury villa options on the island. 

There are 6 luxury 1 and 2 bedroom private villas, each are beautifully designed and uniquely appointed and are perfect for couples or groups. There is an element of Zanzibari tradition in the architecture, but it also has a very contemporary and understated feel.

Since its opening, Xanadu has only had Michelin starred chefs, so naturally the menu is a big focus and the food is incredible. There is no dining room as such, withn guests free to choose where they want to eat, whether it be in  the privacy of their villa lounge or in the main pool/bar area.

Both diving and snorkelling can be organised from Xanadu, as welkl as excursions to the spice farms and into the bustling Capital of Zanzibar, Stone Town.
The hotel is perfect for all Tanzania holidays, honeymooners and families alike.  It does come with a fairly hefty price tag, but it certainly doesn’t have many rivals on Zanzibar.

Xanadu - Reviews

Brilliant lodge, really nice friendly staff and again the food was fantastic. Our butler Amani, couldn't do enough for us. Stunning setting and the activities manager helpful with arranging canoeing/SUP'ing and an evening sunset sail. We were lucky in that only 1/2 other rooms where occupied when were there. While we were all inclusive, it would have been nice to know what was included and what wasn't drinks wise. It was all a little vague what drinks were included and what we would have to pay for. Although, on check out they only charged us for 2 cocktails and I think we had had about 12!
