Zawadi Hotel Zanzibar Collection

The newest offering from the established luxury brand 'The Zanzibar Collection', Zawadi looks is a seriously luxurious and intimate lodge. On the East Coast of Zanzibar, just 9 private, well-appointed Villas sit atop a cliff overlooking the vast Indian Ocean.

Zawadi Hotel, Zanzibar

The lodge is located on Mswakini Beach, on the beautiful south east coast of Zanzibar. It is one of the most exclusive properties on the island with just 9 large villas. 
The stunning view of the Indian Ocean in all its glimmering glory is the main focus of all of the villas, with the raised location giving some of the best views on the island. The main guest area contains a large swimming pool, again with spectacular views; as well as the restaurant and bar area serving the renowned Zanzibar Collection food. Towards the centre of the property the cliffs recede and you can snorkel in a pristine cove directly from the beach.
Each spacious villa, 100 square metres apiece, boasts a large en-suite bathroom and an open, breezy terrace directly over looking the Indian Ocean. The decor is simple and modern, in keeping with the elegant and under stated atmosphere.
Zawadi really does provide an exceptionally intimate service that goes well beyond what one might usually expect from a beach lodge. They do everything to make sure that each one of their guests is completely content, without ever being over bearing.
All watersports and activities are available here, and you will have use of the exceptional facilities at the sister hotels, Baraza and Breezes, including the dive centre and superb spa.

Zawadi is a seriously good value beach destination for an intimate and luxury experience, perfect for a Tanzania honeymoon.

Zawadi - Reviews

Zawadi is what dreams are made of. From the moment we got there, the managers were amazingly accommodating and helped us with every wish, and helped arrange outings so we never had to lift a finger. They gave us a new room with a plunge pool with the most stunning room of the Indian Ocean. The location couldn’t have been better as we were able to snorkel right at the hotel beach. The food was great and we loved the staff so much- everyone was wonderful and lovely to talk to. Zawadi is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and it was all so well taken care of. They really really cared about us and we felt they went out of their way to make everything perfect. The rooms were flawless. 5/5 but again we would rate it higher if we could.
