Sense of Place

Nestled on the shores of a pristine beach in southeast Zanzibar.

The 30 stunning fully-inclusive villas evoke the heritage of Zanzibar dating back to the era of the Sultans. The décor is a seductive fusion of Arabic, Swahili and Indian design, with dramatic Swahili arches, intricate hand carved cement décor, beautiful antiques, handmade furniture and traditional brass lanterns. All rooms come with spacious terraces and private plunge pools.
