Features

Upendo Villa Shiva has been beautifully crafted by local craftsman (using local materials wherever possible). The roofs are made of woven palm leaves and the overall design is contemporary, making a wonderful compliment of two very different styles. Like the house, the furniture was designed by the owner and is made from coconut wood, with matting made by the local Woman’s Association in Stone Town. This all adds atmosphere and gives inspiring personal touches.

A small team looks after the guests. They help to make the retreat an unforgettable experience for those who stay there. The private staff includes: butler, housekeeper, gardener and security guard.

Food

Dine family-style in your villa, or in Upendo’s onsite beachfront restaurant & lounge bar area.

The cuisine focuses on all the fresh ingredients Zanzibar has to offer: fresh sea food, including crab, lobsters, prawns, fish, tropical fruit, and the famous Zanzibar spices & herbs. (Delicious vegetarian options are also available.)

Full Board option includes:

  • Full a la carte Breakfast, Lunch and 3-course Dinner – served family-style in your villa
  • Fully serviced: villa host / butler / housekeeping / security
  • Complimentary tea and coffee-making facilities
  • High speed Wifi & Bluetooth Speakers
  • Toiletries, Towels and Linen change
  • Drinking Water

The staff at Upendo like to offer their guests full flexibility on meal times, aiming at giving a tailor made stay.

Further Notes

A beautiful home away from home, Upendo Villa is set at a stunning beach. The style is a great mix between European and rustic Swahili style. The veranda is just an invitation for lazy afternoons in the sun. We feel that The Upendo restaurant next door, with the amazing infinity pool right there, just adds to the stylish chilled atmosphere. The food is great.
