The Residence Zanzibar

Explore Tanzania

As Tanzania's first member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World, The Residence Zanzibar has raised the standard of Zanzibar's hotels, drawing on Swahili influences to create a seductive retreat of private pool villas.

The huge resort is spread out along the coast with the Luxury Beach front and Prestige Beach Front villa types on the sea front and the garden rooms are set back. All the 66 villas have air conditioning, flat screen TVs, huge bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, each with its own infinity pool outside the front next to a veranda with sun beds and then a short walk to the beach or negotiate your way around by golf cart or bicycle.

The resort has excellent facilities as you would expect with full spa, gym, huge main swimming pool, tennis courts and kids club.

Beautiful location and accommodations. Loved the "individual" pools. Food was good although not as good as on most of the trip. Customer service and communication was somewhat lacking at this location.

The Residence is located on a stretch of gorgeous beach and was like paradise! The staff are all so friendly and go out of their way to help you. The only downside is the high cost of the extras for example the soft drinks, additional meals, the spa and also the excursions. However, this didn't dampen our stay and we would definitely return.
