The Residence Zanzibar incorporates various influences of the island’s history to create a unique ambiance where guests are indulged in an elegant and sophisticated, yet casual beach resort atmosphere of international standard.

Every one of the 66 stand-alone villas has its very own private swimming pool in which to bask in the sun and hide from the other guests. A real luxury for those seeking serenity and seclusion.

The Residence Zanzibar is set in isolated splendour on the South West coast of the island, on 32 hectares of pristine land. Located just 55 minutes from the airport and the capital Stone Town, The Residence Zanzibar lies on a mile-long powdery white sand beach, flanked by coconut palms and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

Further Notes

We’ve just returned from another stay at The Residence (November 2016). On arrival, the resort feels very big… but it only takes a short while before everything feels very familiar. Cycling around the property is a lovely way to cover the distances and helps to stay fit!

The staff is exceptionally friendly. The food is excellent and very varied. Being in a private villa allows ultimate relaxation, and the villas are very upmarket and stylish. Each villa has a decent sized pool, which hardly can be called a plunge pool.

The Residence remains one of our favourite (bigger) resort hotels on Zanzibar!
